If Buddy Nix claims that he is going to draft a player, who will start right away, then reading between the lines, I doubt he would take Claussen in the first round. I was not a big Claussen fan, but the more I have seen of him, can admit he makes all the throws and does study. Rumors, though, think the Raiders might take him just before the Bills pick.
If the Bills don't take a tackle, then they could take McCLain since they still need to build a better defense. And most draft experts think McClain is the most NFL-ready player coming out this year, who could be another Patrick Willis. With the Bills playing a 3:4 defense, you need a good Nosetackle and you also need a good linebacker corps. If the Bills add McClain, then they would have Mitchell and McClain in the middle, and move Poz and Maybin to the outside.
Secondly, GAiley and Nix have talked about taking a game-breaking type player. If Lynch is traded before the draft, then the Bills might take Spiller, who is extremely quick and fast and is a game breaker type running back, whith strong character.
We'll see, just going against the grain here. Face it, who would have thought we would have taken Maybin last year when Orakpo was sitting there.
