...has the Bills taking 'Bama LB Reuben Foster at #10.  Here's his quote:

 

Buffalo could go in a lot of directions here, including QB, but Foster's tape is so good that it reminds me of Luke Kuechly's. There are off-field concerns with Foster, but his tape is awesome.

 

Thoughts?

It would seal the deal on the Rex era and allow us to realize that any hope for Ragland was false.

The talent is there, but is he Dareus 2.0?

Last year we spent 3 picks on an inside linebacker. Are we now adding another top ten pick to the total?

I like Foster and think Mayock has excellent scouting skills. I trust his input, also think we'd be lucky to have him. Honestly I think this class is so talented its going to be reallt tough to whiff in our spot

Or......we could draft a WR at 10,since we only have 9 on the roster👌

Bills need better WR's. The issue is how you spend top ten draft picks.

 

My preference:

 

Franchise QB

 

Elite Pass Rusher

 

Elite Pass Catcher

 

Elite Tackle

 

Elite Corner

 

This is how you spend a top ten pick.

We need a Will. Badly. To go along with Ragland's Mike. I dont care that it'd be 4 picks,only one 1st rounder mind you.that'd be a great young LB core for years to come

If we select him hes our new starting MLB no ?'s Ragland slides outside. Foster has immense talent.

Ok. I would rather have Jarrad Davis as the mike if we're ignoring QB (which is a terrible mistake) and an extra pick.

Elite Rt? Elite Te?Elite Wr,after spending 42 picks on Sammy?? Elite Qb?? Is there one? That leaves pass rusher n corner. Both worthy of #10. But do we need a pass rusher,with our lineup? Corner,yes. But a quality starter can be had on day 2

Reggie cant cover like Foster. I see Rags playing Mike

love Davis. Id be very pleased with him. Im still hoping for Cunningham after trading down 5 spots tho.

I was just saying what Parcells and others want as far positional value. Those positions are more valuable than inside linebacker, guard, etc.

 

I don't see Ragland as a mike in the Carolina McD scheme. Not enough range. I expect him to kick outside as a 2 down LB.

Ok..i get that. But really none of those picks are of need at this point. We have too many holes to be drafting luxury picks imo
I see Rags as a 3 down lb'er. I dont think he gets enough credit. He's gonna surprise folks

Ok. But there are a lot of questions on him plus the ACL injury and the scheme change is doing him no favors as far as playing mike.
