Final mock drat for first two rounds. Mock for the Bills first give rounds. General thoughts below.
Carolina Panthers - Cam Newton (QB) - Auburn
Denver Broncos - Marcell Dareus (DT) - Alabama
Buffalo Bills - Von Miller (OLB) - Texas A & M
Von Miller instantly impacts the running game and the pass rush. He is the best LB in the draft and some argue the best player. Will make an immediate impact for the Bills.

REST OF BILLS MOCK
ROUND 3 - Jarvis Jenkins (DT/DE) - Clemson
The Bills need to beef up their defensive line and Jenkins is perfect for the 5 tech spot
Pick 1 - Casey Matthews (ILB) - Oregon
Improvement is needed at the ILB position for someone to play next to Poz
Pick 2 - Jah Reid (OT) - UCF
An upgrade is needed at the RT position
Da'Norris Searcy (SS) - UNC
Donte Whitner's departure leads a void in the secondary
BIG BOARD PICK ROUND 1 PICK 3
- Patrick Peterson (CB) - LSU
Peterson is my favorite player in the draft. He is a once in generation player and should be at the top of the Buffalo Bills big board. He should be the pick - but will not be.
- Marcell Dareus (DT) - Alabama
- Von Miller (OLB) - Texas A & M
- AJ Green (WR) - Georgia
- Glaine Gabbert (QB) - Missouri
At the number three spot - the Buffalo Bills are in a prime position to pick an excellent player so they have to make the best of the situation. I would be happy with the top 3 picks on my big board. I prefer Patrick Peterson over every other player in the draft. The DL position is very deep in this draft. LB is not deep. I do believe that franchise QB trumps all other picks - but the important part is that the Bills have to really believe that the player they are picking can be their future. If they believe that - than they should def. select QB. My favorite QB in this draft is Jake Locker - but he will be long gone before our second pick, and #3 is way to early for him.
I am very excited to see what happens tomorrow - post a follow up after sunday's draft.
