Mel Kiper's final 2011 NFL Mock Draft won't come out until tomorrow afternoon, but he has taken the opportunity today to release his final big board. It's Insider content, so anyone that likes their money won't be able to see beyond the Top 5 - but considering that the Buffalo Bills are a Top 3 team, it's enough for us to discuss here.
Patrick Peterson, Von Miller, A.J. Green, Marcell Dareus and Nick Fairley make the cut - in that order. At least two of those players, Miller and Dareus, are expected to get serious consideration by the Bills when they're on the clock at No. 3 overall.
Miller, the pass rusher, and Dareus, the run-stuffer, have been rumored to be on the Bills' short list - along with Auburn quarterback Cam Newton - for quite a while now. Clearly, Kiper is not as high on Newton, but if the Bills do end up with either of the other two players, his is another voice saying that the Bills will have made out well with their top pick.
