Welcome to Buffalo Rumblings' coverage of day two of the 2009 NFL Draft! Today's festivities begin at 10AM, roughly an hour from now, and will include the final five rounds - three through seven - of this year's draft.
The Buffalo Bills had an... is 'interesting' the right word?... start to the draft on day one when they added four prospects that few saw coming. The good news - the Bills have drafted at least two starters (guards Eric Wood and Andy Levitre), a serious contributor to the pass rush (DE Aaron Maybin) and a player that could potentially start at free safety on opening day (DB Jairus Byrd). The bad news - the Bills still have glaring holes at tight end and linebacker to address. Day One Recap
Buffalo traded its third-round pick, No. 75 overall, to the Dallas Cowboys in order to move back into the second round to pick Levitre. Therefore, the Bills currently only have four picks throughout the remaining five rounds of the draft and won't pick today until No. 121 in the fourth round. So we've got some time to kill.
We mentioned the continued need for a linebacker and a tight end. One other place to keep your ears peeled today is the trade market. WR Roscoe Parrish, DE Chris Kelsay and FS Ko Simpson have all been mentioned as being on the trade market in recent weeks, and especially in the case of the explosive Parrish, the Bills may be able to pick up an extra selection today via trade.
Just as we did yesterday, we'll have new posts up for each newsworthy item related to the Bills today. In the meantime, this is your spot to discuss the early portions of today's proceedings. Thanks for stopping by, and we'll see you in the comments section!
