The luncheon did not give us any straight answers but did shed some light on where the organization values certain positions. Here is what I think Buddy will do.
Round 1: Stephon Gilmore CB S. Carolina - Buddy said he wants a play- maker and they should be a starter at #10. He also values corners a lot and wants to add two. I think they have Gilmore slated a little higher then Kirkpatrick. He will step in and compete with for a starting spot, which I think he will win. With an improved pass rush I think he can be a big play-maker.
Round 2: Bobby Massie OT Ole Miss - I don't think the Bills have any of the OTs in round one rated over Gilmore. So they get their tackle here. I don't think Massie will start immediately but will provide good competition for Hairston. Depth is a huge issue at this position and Massie helps solve that.
Round 3: Nigel Bradham OLB Florida State - Has the size and speed to start in the NFL. HIs instincts are his only downfall but I think Wanny can coach him up to be a successful player.
Round 4: Tommy Streeter WR Miami - Tall, fast receiver that can compete for a starting spot. Streeter can stretch the field and can go up for those jump balls. He is a prime example of how management said they can get their outside receiver in the third or fourth round.
Round 4: Demario Davis OLB Arkansas State - Another linebacker with great size and speed. Davis has a lot of potential and fixes the depth issue at linebacker.
Round 5: Russel WIlson QB Wisconsin - Have a feeling that Nix will take a QB in this draft and everyone thinks Wilson will be that guy. I am pretty sure we are the only ones who brought him in for a visit so it is a high possibility.
Round 5: Cordarro Law DE Southern Miss - Sleeper prospect that can work his way into the rotation. He has a high motor and work ethic.
Round 6: Trevor Olson OT Northern Illinois - Has the size and experience that Nix likes. Depth at OT is now fixed.
Round 7: Justin Bethel CB Presbyterian - Bills like small school guys in the late rounds and Bethel is definitely worth the pick. Has the size that Nix covets and has the tools to one day play on the starting unit.
Round 7: Blake Gideon FS Texas - I absolutely love this guy and needed him in my draft. He can be a serviceable back-up to Byrd and a beast on special teams. Really hope we pick him up!
Undrafted free agents:
Patrick Edwards WR Houston - Small, speedy receiver that can compete for a job in the slot.
DC Jefferson TE Rutgers - Raw athletic ability but great size at 6-6 260 and is a good blocker. Can compete for the #2 TE spot.
There it is Rumblers. I am sure I will be bored in a couple days and make a new one but in the mean time I'd appreciate your thoughts. Go Bills!
