With the No. 28 overall pick in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have selected Louisville guard/center Eric Wood.

The Bills entered the draft with a need for an interior lineman after releasing OG Derrick Dockery prior to the start of the free agent signing period.  Wood was Buffalo's highest-rated interior lineman on their board, and he will slide in and start immediately at left guard - likely next to new left tackle Langston Walker.

Wood - 6'4" and 309 pounds - is viewed as one of the most intelligent interior linemen available this year, and it doesn't hurt that he's tough, physical and plays with a nasty demeanor.  The kid's talented, to be sure, but far more importantly, he plays the game the right way.

The Bills have one more pick today - No. 42 overall in the second round.  Keep it locked in to Buffalo Rumblings for all of your Buffalo Bills draft needs!
