Mocks, Moves and Predictions

Now that the main event of free agency is over, with no superstars left on the market, let's take a look at how I think the first round of the draft will play out. After that we'll look at how I see the remainder of Buffalo's draft going.

Also, I believe Chan is going to convince Buddy Nix to trade for Tebow, only at the right price of course, because he won't be starting here unless our season is over at the midway point. Chan could possibly mold Tebow, he is renowned for his work with Kordell Stewart. Plus, our FO wants even more ticket sales and jersey sales after what they saw with the Mario signing. So as much as I am unsure if I want Tebow or not, I lean more towards the not, I'll go on a limb and say we get him for the 5th round pick we got from the Lynch trade. Jacksonville would like to make a play for him but they just got Chad Henne to backup last years 10th selection Blaine Gabbert. Miami has been whiffing on everyone they try to get, so I'll just say they somehow lose out on him if they are interested.

And here we go...

1. Indianapolis Colts- Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

2. Washington Redskins (From St. Louis)- Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

3. Minnesota Vikings- Matt Kalil, OT, USC

4. Cleveland Browns- Trent Richardson. RB, Alabama

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU

6. St. Louis Rams (From Washington)- Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma St.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars- Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina

8. Miami Dolphins- Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M

-They missed on everyone else, Tannehill can't run or hide. He won't mind the paycheck though.

9. Carolina Panthers- Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis

10. *TRADE* Dallas Cowboys (From Buffalo)- Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama

-In my last mock I had this trade also, obviously no one knows but it would be a good spot for us to move down and Dallas could further solidify their secondary after signing Brandon Carr. They give us their 3rd round pick for this swap.

11. Kansas City Chiefs- David DeCastro, G, Stanford

12. Seattle Seahawks- Luke Kuechly, ILB, Boston College

13. Arizona Cardinals- Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

14. Buffalo (From Dallas)- Reilly Reiff, OT, Iowa

- I prefer Jonathan Martin, but it seems not many other people do, so I say we take whoever we have rated higher.

15. Philadelphia Eagles- Melvin Ingram, OLB, South Carolina

16. New York Jets- Courtney Upshaw, OLB/DE, Alabama

17. Cincinnati Bengals (From Oakland)- Whitney Mercilus, DE, Illinois

18. San Diego Chargers- Cordy Glenn, G, Georgia

19. Chicago Bears- Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford

20. Tennessee Titans- Nick Perry, DE, USC

21. Cincinnati Bengals- Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama

22. Cleveland Browns (From Atlanta)- Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor

23. Detroit Lions- Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina

24. Pittsburgh Steelers- Mike Adams, OT, Ohio St

25. Denver Broncos- Michael Brockers, DT, LSU

26. Houston Texans- Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech

27. New England Patriots- Mark Barron, S, Alabama

28. Green Bay Packers- Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin

29. Baltimore Ravens- Dont'a Hightower, ILB, Alabama

30. San Francisco 49ers- Zebrie Sanders, OT, Florida St.

31. New England Patriots- Devon Still, DE/DT, Penn St.

32. New York Giants- Kevin Zeitler, G, Wisconsin

Buffalo Bills Overall Draft:

RD 1, PICK 14- Reilly Reiff, OT, Iowa

RD 2, PICK 41- Shea McClellin, OLB/DE, Boise St.

RD 3, PICK 72- Chase Minnifield, CB, Virginia

RD 3, PICK 83- Greg Childs, WR, Arkansas

RD 4, PICK 105- Keenan Robinson, OLB, Texas

RD 4, PICK 124- Janzen Jackson, FS, McNeese St.

RD 5, PICK 136- Quinton Saulsberry, C, Mississippi St.

*RD 5, PICK 138- Traded to Broncos for Tim Tebow*

RD 6, PICK 167- Chris Galippo- ILB, USC

RD 7, PICK 200- David Paulson, TE, Oregon

My altogether early predictions....

Division winners:

AFC East- New England AFC South- Houston AFC West- Denver AFC North- Baltimore

NFC East- Dallas NFC South- Carolina NFC West- Seattle NFC North- Chicago

Wildcard teams:

AFC- San Diego, Buffalo

NFC- Green Bay, Philadelphia

Yes, that means no Steelers, Saints, Falcons, Giants, Lions, 49ers, or Jets (once again)! The Saints have a lot of crap going on so I will make that bold prediction that they barely miss the postseason. I have a strong feeling about Carolina having a real good year and winning the South. The Giants will have a Super Bowl hangover. The Jets will miss the playoffs every year until Rex Ryan is fired. Atlanta is another team I like but we all know the turnover that happens every year in the playoffs. And of course, I'm being generous to our Buffalo Bills, but I always keep hopes alive until the 7th or 8th loss of the year. This could very well be our year to get in.

Conference Championships:

AFC- Houston v. Baltimore

NFC- Dallas v. Green Bay

Super Bowl XLVII- In New Orleans, LA

"The Texas Showdown"

Houston Texans defeat Dallas Cowboys, 31-20

Super Bowl MVP- Arian Foster
