My Updated 2012 Bills Mock Draft - with Trade Down


Round 1 - trade down, pick up extra Round 2 pick
Round 1: RDE Whitney Mercilus
Round 2: QB Brock Osweiler
Round 2: OLB Shea McClellin
Round 3: OT Mitchell Schwartz
Round 4: CB Coryell Judie
Round 4: WR Ryan Broyles
Round 5: C Quentin Saulsbury
Round 5: TE Michael Egnew
Round 6: LDE Julian Miller
Round 7: WLB Sammy Brown

This draft follows a productive FA signing period wherein OBD signs all the Bills' key internal UFAs (i.e., Stevie Johnson; Demetrius Bell; Scott Chandler; etc.) and also signs 3 external UFAs:

RDE Anthony Spencer

CB Stanford Routt

WR (i.e., Dwayne Bowe; Vincent Jackson; Pierre Garcon; Robert Meachem)

So while these draft picks would be expected to play and contribute, none (with the possible exception of McClellin at SLB) would be expected to take a full-time starter role as a rookie, which is a good thing. For instance, Mercilus would be a pass rush specialist who would rotate in mostly on passing downs and only on some of those (with Spencer and possibly even Merriman sharing the RDE position). Of course the more they produce, the more time they're going to see on the field.

The trade down would happen if Quinton Coples is gone before the #10 pick and would occur because the next several alternative RDE candidates (i.e., Mercilus; Perry; Ingram) are all pretty equivalent in value and the extra Round 2 pick they'd get would offset the gamble taken on QB Osweiler using the #41 pick.

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