We all have our opinions about what to take with our first round pick this upcoming spring. I personally am in heavy favor of a pass rusher. I remember how we talked about how terrible our pass rush was in 07 (26 sacks) and our numbers actually went down this season fellas (24). Thats horrific. Teams are doubling our sack total. For all of those that want some pass rushing entertainment, here is 2 defensive ends that I am very interested in. I hope the bills take either one with their first pick.
Brian Orakpo: age 22 / University of Texas / 6-4 260lbs
Season stats: 40 tackles, 11 sacks, 0 FFs
This guy is an animal. He missed 3 of 13 games this season and still put up 11 sacks. He is a freak of nature and he reminds me alot of Demarcus Ware. He has alot of moves and is not just a bill rush guy. In this video, espn profiles him and can bench ridiculous amounts. He looks like he has the potential to be a dominant, game changing, pass rusher.
Everette Brown: age 21 / Florida State / 6-4 248lbs
Season Stats: 32 tackles, 13 sacks, 3 FFs
This guy is good. really good. I have been watching highlights and vids of him as well as other defensive ends and when you watch him play its not hard to see that this guy has alot of talent. He has a plethora of moves and his spin move is lightning fast. he's really athletic, and he has really really good QB awareness. By that I mean he sees if the QB steps up in the pocket or rolls out and he makes the right move to get to him. He also reminds me of a Julius Peppers/Demarcus ware type. Freakishly athletic. I would be happy with either of these guys. For God's sake Buffalo please make the right choice. Defensive end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
