Vontaze Burfict



So with the draft coming up and our transition back to a 4-3 has got me thinking. I know we were going into this draft looking for a OLB/DE pass rusher and now it looks more evident that we may be leaning towards finding your prototypical 4-3 DE. Problem is, I don't see one at #10 worth taking a shot on at all. If we stay, I would be very content with taking one of the top Tackles, considering one will be there and they all seem to be very solid prospects. Locking up one of the most important positions in football for the next 10 years seems to be a good idea. However...

If we go the route of pass rusher we need to trade down. I know we probably won't, but there is no one worth taking at 10. The only player I would take at 10 is Upshaw. Upshaw is going to be a solid player in this league for many years, something the Bills need. However, I don't think he has the "star" potential. Vontaze Burfict defines "star" potential. I get chills watching this guy play. Every hit seems to be like a heat sinking bomb. If you haven't seen some of his tape you can go check it out, I promise you will enjoy. The only negative here, is he is a bit of a hot head, something the Bills don't even bother with usually. A trade down to the bottom of the first to nab this guy would be a great move. Nix showed he can draft, last year, he nearly hit on every player. Giving him more picks and still picking up what I think will be the best LB to come out of this draft would be a good move. The only problem is, will be taming this beast, which may be difficult. I can just see him replacing Ray Lewis for the next ten years. He is the same kind of animal and he can be taught there. I also see a team like NE getting him late in the first, or the Steelers. They will turn this freak into the next best linebacker next to Patrick Willis. I am willing to take a shot on this guy, given the lack of top tier pass rushers available at 10. If not, I would be happy with one of the tackles if we stay, but I really see an animal here folks...Do you agree? would you take a shot at him if we traded down?

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
