I had high hopes that the Bills would pick up either Kenny Britt or Desean Jackson in FA or another Safety just to give them some more draft flexibility.

Rd. 1 Mike Evans, WR Texas A&M: I've been back and forth between him and Matthews. I don't believe Matthews will be there at 9, plus i believe there are a good amount of potential starting Right tackles later in the draft. Evans, however, would immediately come in and become a weapon for EJ for years to come. Reminds me of Vincent Jackson. Overall, he's a 6'4 230 lb freak who runs a 4.53 and can be a potent deep ball or red zone threat. If the Bills pass on him at 9, I believe they will regret it years down the road.

Rd. 2 Austin Sefarian Jenkins TE Washington: Another weapon for EJ that would immediately be an upgrade over Chandler, Moeaki, and Gragg. At 6'6 almost 270 Lbs. I have him as a slight edge over Troy Niklas. Both are intriguing weapons. Sefarian Jenkins is a first round talent who should drop to the second round due to a foot injury during the combine. He has a nice skill set along with some freakish athleticism. At that size, the Bills Should be able to implement a nice double tight package with him and Chandler. You can never give a young quarterback enough weapons.

Rd. 3 Juwan James RT Tennessee: A suprisingly athletic 6'6 311 lb offensive tackle who spent all 37 of his career games on the right side. He was the leader of the Tennessee O Line. A very tough run blocker and a pretty reliable pass blocker. Should come in on day 1 and beat out the pedestrian Pears. James in the third round would be a pick I love. He has the potential to solidify our O Line if Chris Williams pans out at Guard.

Rd. 4 Ahmad Dixon S Baylor: Dixon is a hard hitting physical safety. He stands at 6 feet tall 212 lbs. He's fast and physical and always seems to be around the ball. The Bills may be content with what they have at safety but I tend to believe they should take a guy like this and let him compete from day one. I like the physical safety's who aren't afraid to come up and stick somebody.

Rd. 5 Andrew Jackson ILB Western Kentucky: Jackson is 6'1 245. He has been one of my favorite potential draft prospects for the last couple of years. He has consistently led the Western Kentucky defense while performing well against the better competition like LSU and Alabama. He is a thumper middle linebacker who is not afraid to lay the wood on anyone. I believe he will be a steal in the draft. Jackson is some insurance in case Brandon Spikes doesn't pan out or sign a long term deal with the Bills after this year.

Rd. 6 Aaron Lynch DE University of South Florida: At this point in the draft, you are looking for the best talent available. Two years ago, I watched Aaron Lynch dominate opposing O Lines as a freshmen for Notre Dame. Unfortunately, after his dominant freshmen season, he returned to his hometown state of Florida to be with his pregnant girlfriend. At USF, Lynch underperformed. He only had 5 sacks. That being said, this kid is only scratching the surface of his potential and at this point in the draft, the Bills have nothing to lose, yet could be highly rewarded for this selection.

Rd. 7 Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma: Much like Round 6, in Round 7 you want to take the best talent available. Colvin may have to start the season on the PUP list due to a Torn ACL in the senior bowl. ACL injuries are so much less of a concern now a days with the brilliant doctors that are performing surgeries. Colvin is a talented Corner who would have likely gone in the second round if he had not injured his knee. He has nice man coverage ability, solid athleticism and fluid hips


The one UDFA I would like to bring in is TE Colt Lyerla from Oregon. We wouldn't be taking a risk with his off the field concerns as an UDFA and he could develop into another deadly weapon for EJ

GO BILLS!!!

I suspect it will be eiher Evans or Lewan in round one, given the fact that neither  WR nor OT have been addressed in free agency.  I'm partial to the OT choice, but the thought may be that if we can get Evans we might get a good OT in round two.  I think the choice on round one will be based on our assessment of what will be available in round two for these positions.  Round 3?....tight end.

Great post. Love to read well thought out and insightful posts. The Evans/Ebron/Tackle debate, like every early first round selection ever made, has a very strong likelihood of defining the Bills for a very long time. Also, damn the NFL for delaying the draft!

What's interesting, will be to pay attention to who the BILLS bring in for a Pre-Draft visit as I was just reading last night that in each of the last 4 years their 1st Round Draft picks have all made Pre-Draft visits...a nice little clue to see what they may be thinking... :ph34r:

To land a potential #1 WR and a #1 TE in the first 2 rounds, this draft would be AMAZING

definitely a good thing to keep an eye on. A second round prospect they brought in today is OLB Ryan Shazier from Ohio State. Could make a hell of a trip of LBs with spikes, kiko, and shazier

I like the draft as well and wouldn’t hate it that’s for sure, however if it were me, I like your 1st pick, and I can live with 2, Jenkins, but 3, and 4 although not terrible I would prefer Morgan Moses at 2 and Branden Thomas at 3.  I see you have Colt Lyerla as UDFA and a lot of people do, but I would actually take him in the 4th instead of Jenkins in the 2nd.  I have Jackson and Lynch in the exact same spot as you do.  See my post yesterday : http://forums.twobillsdrive.com/topic/166760-a-no-trade-mock/

All in all, good draft though.

If you were to add Anthony Barr in the first and Aaron Murray in the third, I would give this draft a perfect "A".

1. OT Jake Matthews, We need to draft linemen, the Bills drafted two WR's last year.
2. OLB Kyle Van Noy, The Bills need depth and starters opposite Kiko.
3. DE Marcus Smith, Need someone to start opposite of Mario.
4. RB Lache Seastrunk Fred Jackson is getting old, the Bills already had a look at him.
5. OLB. Addrian Hubbard, OLB depth.
6. OG. Trai Turner Offensive line depth
7. BPA

well so far going by this, I hope everyone wants a DB from Ohio State at #9 again...lol...I think I just heard everyone throw up...so far these are the guys Buffalo have brought in for pre-draft looks :

TE, Troy Niklas, Notre dame - projected 2nd round
CB, Bradley Roby, Ohio State - projected 1st or 2nd round
OLB, Ryan Shazier, Ohio State - projected 1st or 2nd round...although most mocks have him going in the 1st
RB, Lache Seastrunk, Baylor - projected 3rd - 5th round
WR, Cody Latimer, Indiana - projected 5th - 6th round

so far CB or OLB would be the first round pick..although they still have 5 more they can bring in to look at i believe...I don't see any of these guys as the pick at #9 tho

They have a total of 30 pre-draft visits allowed.
