How I would address the pass rush problem via the draft

2012 Bills Draft (after my projected trade down with Cincinnati)

#17: RDE Nick Perry
#41: SLB Shea McClellin
#53: WR Brian Quick
#72: LDE Tyrone Crawford
#105: WR Ryan Broyles
#124: CB Coryell Judie
#136: OT Nate Potter
#138: TE Brian Linthicum
#167: OT/OG Levy Adcock
#200: FB Cody Johnson

1. By trading down so Buddy Nix can justify investing in a top RDE prospect in the first round - Nick Perry at #17, plus the #53 pick he adds in the trade down.
2. Adding to Perry by taking SLB Shea McClellin at #41 and using him as a situational pass rusher to add to what Perry brings.
3. By adding LDE Tyrone Crawford - McClellin's Boise State teammate - at #72 to mentor under Chris Kelsay and bring serious pressure from the other side of the line.

That's 3 picks in the first 4, all designed to improve the Bills' pass rush abilities up front. I believe if you string that around Dareus and Meatball you will see some serious pressure erupt. Mario Williams would have been nice but it wasn't going to happen in reality. So they add pass rushing ability through the draft by adding multiple pass rushers from different positions. And I think that's how the problem gets solved.

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