2009 Buffalo Bills Mock Draft Database
Site 1st Rnd Pick Pos. Ht. Wt. College Pick Assessment
 Sports Projections - Updated 2/04) Vontae Davis
CB
6-0 204
Illinois
Our take - Uh, no

Football Jabber - Updated 2/18) Brian Orakpo DE
6-3 263
Texas Their Take - Like OT, there are a few DE’s that may swap spots up and down the board. The Bills can use some young blood in the rotation and as a future face on the defensive line hunting the QB. Although they could use some TE help as well, #11 seems awfully high for the available choices at the position.

Draft Empire - Updated 2/18) Aaron Maybin
DE
6-4 249
Penn State
My Take - With some added weight, Maybin looks to be one of the few players to consider at #11.  Can he add more weight to his 6'4" frame and retain his quickness, and can he help right away?  Those are the questions the Front Office will need to consider.

Draft King - (Updated 2/21) Michael Oher
OT 6-5 309 Ole Miss My Take - WTF?
New NFL Draft - (Updated 2/23) Everette Brown
DE 6-2 256 Florida State

My Take - I still think Brown is the best pass rusher in the draft, and should be drafted as such, regardless of his height.  He plays with good leverage, speed and balance which negates any issue his height may have.

Other Bills' picks:
2nd: Max Unger C Oregon
3rd: Chase Coffman TE Missouri
4th: Augustus Parrish OT Kent St.

Aaron Maybin
DE 6-4 249 Penn State

Their Take - Buffalo has to address their pass rush issues sooner rather than later. If Everette Brown, Brian Orakpo or Aaron Maybin are left on the board, the decision should be pretty easy. Maybin has great speed and athleticism, but is he physically ready to play in the NFL? If he can prove he is during the combine, Maybin will be worth a top ten pick.
2nd Round Pick: Chase Coffman TE

Fantasy Football Jungle -
(Updated 1/28)
Brian Orakpo
DE 6-3 263 Texas Their Take --
The Bills defense wasn't the same as the Bills defenses of old. They will probably look for the best defensive player on the board with this pick that isn't in the secondary. I believe the smart pick will be Orakpo who is versatile enough to play many places in the bills front seven.
2nd: Shawn Nelson TE So. Miss
3rd: Tyronne Green OG Auburn
4th: Graham Harrell QB Texas Tech (WTF?)

Draft Tek  - (Updated 2/23) BJ Raji
DT 6-1 337
Boston College

My Take -- I'd personally take Maybin instead.
2nd: DE Kruger
3rd: TE Coffman
4th: QB Bomar
5th: LB Ivy
6th: OG Lang
7th: FB Johnson

Brandon Pettigrew
TE 6-5 263 Oklahoma State
Their Take -"Huge target in the passing game (6-5, 260), and a willing and dominant run blocker. Soft hands, and tough to bring down."
2nd Round: Kenny Britt WR Rutgers (yay)
Draft Daddy  - (Updated 2/16) Brian Orakpo
DE 6-3 263 Texas Their Take - The Bills need a strong and reliable player to set the edge of their 4-3, Orakpo is a safe bet.

Safe bet? Eh, that's debatable....
New Sport Draft (Updated 2/24) Rey Maualuga
MLB 6-4 249 USC Their Take -N/A
New Era Scouting - (Updated ???) Brian Cushing
OLB 6-3 243 USC Their Take - N/A

2nd Round pick: James Casey TE Rice

Raul Colon

(Updated 2/21)
Aaron Curry
OLB 6-2 254 Wake Forest
My Take -After his combine performance, I think its safe to say that this isn't happening.
Walter Football - Walter  (Updated 2/21) Brian Orakpo
DE
6-3 263 Texas
Their Take - I've seen some 2009 NFL Mock Drafts project Brandon Pettigrew here, and while that fits a need, No. 11 is simply too high for him. Buffalo needs to address its defensive end woes before it adds a quality pass-catching tight end to the roster.
2nd: C Unger
3rd: TE Coffman
4th: OLB McRath

Draft Ace - (Updated 2/13) Jeremy Maclin
WR 6-0 198 Missouri
Their Take -- The Bills are two years into the Trent Edwards era and they've failed to supply him with enough talent to prove his worth. Lee Evans is one of the best in the game, but they need a reliable second option. Maclin has the size and speed to develop into an elite receiver, and the raw talent to be a difference maker right from the get go.
NE Patriots Draft
- (Updated 2/12)
Michael Johnson
DE
6-7 266 Georgia Tech
Their Take -- "While his quick first step and long body makes him a terror to pass block, Johnson needs to work on his variety of moves and shedding blockers."
2nd Round: J. Luigs C Arkansas
Walter Football -
Matt McGuire

(Updated 2/20)
Tyson Jackson
DE 6-4 295 LSU
My Take - Huh?  This guy is the perfect 3-4 DE, and has limited pass rush ability.  He's about as bad a fit as there can be here.
2nd Round: Nic Harris S/OLB Oklahoma - Another WTF pick
Seahawks Draft - (Updated 1/10) Brian Orakpo
DE 6-3 263 Texas Their Take -The Bills need to support Aaron Schrobel with another pass rushing end. Orakpo could fit in a 4-3 or a 3-4 and had an excellent senior year.

Brandon Pettigrew
TE 6-5 263 Oklahoma State
FF Toolbox - Ricky Dimon
(Updated 2/17)
Brian Orakpo
DE 6-3 263 Texas My Take -Someone is a popular pick

2nd: S Nic Harris OU   Yuck
Draft Headquarters - (Updated 2/17) Brian Orakpo
DE 6-3 263 Texas
Their Take --"The Bills' pass rush was among the worst in football last season. They desperately need to add a defensive end who is capable of getting to the quarterback. Orakpo had an outstanding senior season and really saw his stock rise. He's a lock to be a Top 20 pick and could enter into the mix for the Top 10. Brandon Pettigrew is another option here to give the team an added threat at the tight end position."
Mock Draft Aces - (Updated 2/2) Rey Maualuga
MLB 6-4 249 USC Their Take - N/A
College Sports Master - (Updated 1/7) Aaron Curry
OLB 6-2 254 Wake Forest
Their Take - N/A
APFootball - (Updated 2/4) Michael Johnson
DE 6-7 266 Georgia Tech
My Take - Take Maybin first.
Lucky Lestor  (Updated 1/19) Brian Orakpo
DE 6-3 263 Texas My Take -Can't be too lucky with a name like Lester.
Draft Bulletin - (Updated 1/28) Everette Brown
DE 6-2 256 Florida State
Their Take - N/A
Draft Countdown - (Updated 2/5) Brian Orakpo
DE 6-3 263 Texas
Their Take - "Brian Orakpo, a.k.a. "O-Sack-Po", had an amazing senior season for the Longhorns and he won both the Lombardi Award as the nation's best lineman and the Nagurski Trophy, which is given to the nation's top defensive player. In addition to that outstanding on-field performance Orakpo also figures to test extremely well in pre-draft workouts when he is given an opportunity to show off his amazing blend of athleticism, speed and strength. Don't rule out Pettigrew though because Buffalo struggled to score points and he'd really aid the development of Trent Edwards."
2nd: Shawn Nelson TE
Draft Dog - (Updated 2/22) Brandon Pettigrew
TE 6-5 263 Oklahoma State
Their Take "The Bills need a Pro Bowl tight end and Pettigrew (6' 6" 260 lbs) is one of the most talented offensive prospects in this draft. A devastating blocker as well as receiver."
The Football Expertt - (Updated 2/15) Brian Orakpo
DE 6-3 263 Texas
Their Take - "Many experts have projected Brandon Pettigrew at this slot, but I believe when you have a losing record, I usually recommend drafting other positions in the first round as there will be pretty of talent at the TE position in the next few rounds.  Past high first round tight ends have not been the game changers teams thought they were going to be.  Take Chase Coffman or Jared Cook in the 2nd round."
2nd: Coffman TE
3rd: Freeman OLB
4th: Caldwell C
My NFL Draftt - (Updated 2/16) Brian Orakpo
DE 6-3 263 Texas
My Take - (Yawn)
Draft Season Lupagus - (Updated 2/2) Brandon Pettigrew
TE 6-5 263 Oklahoma State
Their Take - "What is the best cure for a struggling young QB? Give him a nice big tight end as a safety valve"

My Take - How about a running game, or a good D, or better receivers, or a game against the Chiefs?
Football's Future  - (Updated 2/16) Aaron Curry
OLB 6-2 254 Wake Forest
Their Take "The Bills would like to add a tight end to Trent Edwards available options, but this is too early for one. Curry is very good value at this point, and could step in on the strong side from Day One. "
Draft Board Insiderr - (Updated 1/24) Brian Orakpo
DE 6-3 263 Texas
Their Take N/A
2nd Round - Evander Hood DT Missouri
ESPN Mel Kiper - (Updated 1/22) Brandon Pettigrew
TE 6-5 263 Oklahoma State
My Take - Can't do an update in a month Mel?  Have you really been that busy doing whatever it is you do between then and the Combine?
ESPN Todd McShay - (Updated 2/2) Aaron Maybin
DE 6-4 249 Penn State

Their Take "TE Brandon Pettigrew is an obvious possibility, but the Bills are looking to improve the edges of their defensive front, and Maybin's upside as a pass-rusher is huge. In the Bills' 4-3 defense, Maybin would fit best at SAM linebacker but also could serve as a situational edge rusher, help that DEs Chris Kelsay and Aaron Schobel need.

2nd Round: Cornelius Ingram TE Florida

Draft Notebook - (Updated 2/21) Everette Brown
DE 6-2 256 Florida State

Their Take N/A

2nd Round: Chase Coffman TE

National Football Post - (Updated 2/16) Brian Orakpo
DE 6-3 263 Texas

Their Take - "The Bills need to enhance their pass rush off the edge, and Orakpo looks like his skill set is much better suited for a 4-3 defense than a 3-4."

CNN/SI Don Banks - (Updated 1/22) Brandon Pettigrew
TE 6-5 263 Oklahoma State

Their Take The Bills have to get more potent on offense, as the final 10 games of their once-hopeful 2008 season painfully exhibited. For the longest time they've needed a tight end who can both make plays in the passing game and add enough of a blocking presence to justify his role in the lineup. Pettigrew has the perfect combination of those skills, and will offer a reliable underneath option for quarterback Trent Edwards"

NFL Draft Scout Rob Rang -  (Updated 2/17) Aaron Maybin
TE 6-4 249 Penn State

Their Take "Former Nittany Lion Paul Posluszny nearly doubled the production of the Bills' second-leading tackler last season. Considering the free agent status of undersized Keith Ellison and the medical uncertainty of former starter Angelo Crowell, the Bills may look back to Penn State. Maybin, an ascending talent, could provide a combination of athleticism and size currently missing from Buffalo's linebacking corps."

NFL Draft Scout Chad Reuterr - (Updated 2/18) Everette Brown
DE 6-2 256 Florida State

Their Take "The Bills desperately need a pass-rushing threat like Brown on the outside. TE Brandon Pettigrew might be tempting, but there is enough depth in this draft to find a potential starter there in round two."

CBS Sports Pete Prisco - (Updated 2/12) Brandon Pettigrew
TE 6-5 263 Oklahoma State

Their Take "They need to get a threat in the middle of the field to take the pressure off Lee Evans. Pettigrew can be that special kind of receiving tight end."

Pro Football Weekly - (Updated 1/30) Brandon Pettigrew
TE 6-5 263 Oklahoma State

Their Take "The value of a complete tight end who can dominate as a blocker will not be lost on Dick Jauron and draft boss Tom Modrak, and after losing Kevin Everett to injury two years ago, the Bills need to address the TE position."

My Take - The rationale is that we need to address the TE position because we lost Kevin Everett two years ago?  That's some sound logic right there.  But what can you expect from the guys who had us picking Phillip Merling last year.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
