Now at season's end, we can look foward to hopefully another succesful draft under the CHIX era. The most crucial part of the draft is clearly what we do with our first overall pick. We can all agree that CJ Spiller is proving his worth, and surely looks like a first round pick out there. One at the time wouldn't have thought Fred Jackson would explode onto the scene and be an MVP candidate, but CJ Spiller fascinated me during the post Fred Jackson domination. Either keeping Fred Jackson, or trading him for solid value is fine with me because Spiller has proven to be a reliable and strong asset to our offense for many years to come. Although one may debate that we should have went for playmaker Patrick Peterson or A.J. Green in the 2011 draft, Marcell Dareus has proved his worth by entering the league with an impresive rookie campaign. Scoring big on two straight picks does not happen often with the Bills, and it looks like Buddy Nix is negating that once common trend. Scoring big on a third straight first round pick would be a big ingredient to the Bills being serious playoff contenders. People are debating on what we should really do with the #10 pick. Does Fitzpatrick need a stud tackle to perform according to his contract? Will a more dominant pass rush finally solve our defensive problems and possibly make us a feared D in the AFC? Does Fitzpatrick need more targets to throw to in order to maximize his stats, as well as help us score more points on the board? Do we need help in the secondary in order to give up less points and help us stay in games? Or should we lose faith in Fitz and draft a quarterback to jump in if he proves to not be worth his contract? Amongst the given positions are players mentioned in current mock drafts placed near/at our pick. Feel free to mention a player who would fit the system, and make an immediate impact to help us get where we need to be.....the playoffs.
