After the final round of voting for the Bills compensatory pick, the fans overwhelmingly supported drafting RB John Clay with 33% of the vote (42% wanting the Bills to draft a running back). In second was OLB Doug Houge with 11% of the vote (15% for an OLB), 12% went to DL Zane Parr while 10% total went to a second corner (CB Darrin Walls getting 8% of that vote). Here's the final results for the last complete mock draft for this year:
Round 1: DL Marcell Dareus - Alabama (31% - 33%)
Round 2: QB Jake Locker - Washington (13% - 33%)
Round 3: LB Quan Sturdivant - North Carolina (29% - 39%)
Round 4: OT Joseph Barksdale - LSU (26% - 38%)
Round 4: TE Virgil Green - Nevada (26% - 31%)
Round 5: LB Mark Herzlich - Boston College (43% - 43%)
Round 6: SS Jeron Johnson - Boise State (17% - 30%)
Round 7: CB Byron Maxwell - Clemson (32% - 32%)
Round 7: RB John Clay - Wisconsin (33% - 42%)
I would like to thank everyone who voted throughout the mock draft. Please feel free to voice your opinions and grade the mock itself. Feel free to check out the complete voting in each round by clicking on the links provided. Just a quick reminder of how some of the scoring worked. Particularly in the second round, QB Jake Locker did not have the true majority of the vote as ILB Martez Wilson had more votes outright. However, as stated with the rules of this mock draft and the one prior to that, if a position with 2+ players has the majority of the votes (the vote is split to let a third party to win) then the round goes to the majority position/player in that situation. The percentages on the left indicate individual voting while those on the right indicate positional voting. In each round that a player won, the position the player was selected from was at least 30% which given all the options and opinions is a fairly consistent tracker.
I shall be re-polling just the first round (tomorrow) as the NFL Draft is just 4 days away! I am sure all of you are excited as to who CHIX and Bills will select at #3 (or lower?) For all you Sabres fans, I am keeping my fingers crossed for game seven and a continuation of their push towards the cup. Again thank you for following and participating in this mock draft. Go Bills!
