The Buffalo Bills, in their most shocking move of the day, have traded back into the second round to select Oregon State OG Andy Levitre.

The Bills sent their third-round pick (No. 75 overall) and their first fourth-round pick (No. 110 overall) to the Dallas Cowboys for the No. 51 overall selection, which they used to add the versatile Levitre.

Levitre is the second interior lineman selected by the Bills on the day, joining Louisville C/G Eric Wood, the team's No. 28 overall pick in the first round.  Though he played left tackle at Oregon State, NFL scouts don't believe he can play the position in the pros, lacking the arm length and overall frame (6'3", 305 pounds) to adequately protect the edge.

Oddly enough, the Bills emerge from the first day of the draft with the top two interior linemen on their board in Levitre and the aforementioned Wood.  Feel free to speculate on how Levitre fits into the picture - does Brad Butler move to RT?  Is Levitre simply a backup?  The comments section is yours.  We're pretty sure Buffalo is done for the day.
