This is my first fan post for the my beloved but frustrating Bills. I would like to introduce myself just a little bit, so you the fan, can know a little bit of the writer. My name is Raul Jimenez and I have been a Bills fan since the days of Drew, Holcomb, J.P., and Trent. I have seen it all from the Bills from the last second field goal on Monday Night football against the Cowboys to the fumble by J.P. that was ran back by the Jets to win the game. Well this mock draft is for a new year, new talent, and a better ending then this year.
1stR: Courtney Upshaw OLB Alabama-A very aggressive OLB, with a high motor. This man is a beast. What I love the most, just like Dareus, he's Alabama disciplined. Its considered a bit of a reach because he struggles a bit with pass coverage. But you can notignore his talent for getting after the Qb.
2ndR:Brandon Jenkins, OLB/DE, Florida State-Pass rush! Pas rush! Pass rush! We need it, and Jenkins brings it. Some may argue, due to the fact we are 3-4, may say he wont fit our scheme. But most fail to realize that we are hybrid. We dont need to set the edge on passing situations. What we need is pressure!
3rdR:Jarius Wright, Wide Receiver, Arkansas -Very underrated sure handed receiver. That is very shifty and a good route runner against man to man coverage. Not a lot of media attention because of inconsistency at QB.
4thR:Levy Adcock, Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma State- Adcock ended on a high note with an impressive game against Oklahoma and defensive end Frank Alexander. Alexander was shutdown by Adcock, and Oklahoma State rolled their rival. He may be best at right tackle or possibly guard at the next level.
4thR(from Ravens trade): Lonnie Edwards, G, Texas Tech depth, depth, depth! As we saw this past season, you can never have to much depth.
5thR:Chris Rainey, Slot WR/PR/KR-Like Nix always said you can never have too many playmakers. We all know Rainey has speed and versatility. He can be our new Roscoe Parrish. But healthy & younger of course. I personally believe this the steal of the draft.
6thR:Jerry Franklin, Inside Linebacker, Arkansas-Franklin has totaled 93 tackles with 10 tackles for a loss and four passes broken up. He has been quiet in a lot of big games this past season though. But he has a nose for the football and gives us depth.
7thR: Greg McCoy, CB, TCU- For 2011 he had 36 tackles, 7 pass break ups, and 2 picks. Like i said we need depth!
Tell me what you think Bills fans!
