After watching the BCS game last night, I was very impressed with Upshaw! On draft day, if he is on the board when the Bills pick 10th, I better hear Upshaw! Unless of course Blackmon is still available...
I have no ties to Bama, nor am I a big fan, but you have to respect the defensive effort that they put forth in that game.
At 6-2 and 265, I believe that meets the physical characteristics that CHIX desires. So check that off the list.
High motor? Check! I witnessed Upshaw all over the field last night. 7 tackles, and a sack! He basically camped out in the LSU backfield all night! Of course, do not forget, he was the defensive MVP.
Strong? Able to break off the block? Check! Check!!!
I have seen mock drafts with OTs and DEs going to the bills at 10. I have also seen a number of mocks that give the Jets Upshaw at 16.
Now... when CHIX announces "Upshaw" on draft day... not only do we get a legit OLB that will improve our LB situation, but we also weaken the Jets, as they seem to be on the market for an OLB as well. Double victory!
I am going to order my #41 jersey today!
