Greetings fellow rumblers. I'm going to get into the mocking spirit and give you my Bills only mock. This is how I envision the 2011 Nfl draft breaking down for the Bills. So withoit further dudes.
Rd 1. Patrick Peterson CB LSU. In my mind Patrick Peterson, and AJ Green are the two top prospects in this draft. I like Green, but the Bills WR corps is solid enough that I don't believe that Green will be pick there. I do think Peterson will be. He's got elite size,speed, and hands. He also provides a heir apparent to McGee, makes Florence expendable, and as a bonus he provides great value on Special Teams as well.
Rd.2 Jabaal Sheard DE/OLB Pitt. A guy that Dave Wannstedt is very familiar with. He's versataile enough to play in the 4-3 or 3-4, and is a very good pass rusher. He has the talent to go in the late 1st rounnd, but there is that arrest on his record.
Rd. 3 James Brewer OT Indiana. A massive Offensive lineman in the mold that Gailey and Nix seem to prefer. He would challenge Pears for the starting RT spot from Day 1.
Rd 4.Kelvin Sheppard ILB LSU. This is the one pick that has been rumored for awhile. And I see the sense in it. He'd offer a nice long term option next to Poz in the middle. And would have a chance to learn behind Davis for awhile.
Rd 4. Jordan Cameron TE USC. Much like Graham last year and Gates and Gonzalez before that, Cameron is a former Basketball player with a ton of upside. He needs a ton of work, but could be very very good down the road.
Rd 5. Tyrod Taylor QB Va Tech. I know this is the pick that some Bills fans will hate. However I think Taylor is a very real possibility for the Bills. He lacks elite heigth, but has every other measurable you'd want in a QB. And he's a leader who never gives up. I'd be very happy to see Taylor in a Bills uniform next season.
Rd 6. Owen Marecic FB/MLB Stanford. His pro position is probably FB, but I can see Gailey and company, happily adding a guy as well rounded as Marecic to the roster.
After RD 6 it's kind of a crap shoot. I wouldn't be suprised to see the Bills make an effort to get back up in the draft and get a guy like Roy Helu in the 5th or 6th. If only to present a third type of running style to opposing defences. Anyhow comment away.
