We've now come full circle in our pre-2012 NFL Draft rumor mill with regards to the Buffalo Bills, dear readers.

After months of endless debates about wide receiver and left tackle prospects, conversation for the past week has focused primarily on defenders, thanks in large part to several interviews from Bills GM Buddy Nix and his scouting staff, as well as several reports linking the team to players such as Alabama safety Mark Barron and Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly, among others.

A source tells Rob Rang of CBSSports.com that all of the defender talk (particularly regarding Barron and Kuechly) is "total BS" designed not only to drum up trade interest in the Bills' No. 10 pick, but to disguise their true intention: to take an offensive player if they can't trade down.

Rang rounds out his report by stating that if USC tackle Matt Kalil isn't available - and he likely won't be - the Bills' pick will come down to Notre Dame receiver Michael Floyd and Stanford tackle Jonathan Martin, who is apparently their second-rated tackle ahead of Georgia product Cordy Glenn.

So there you have it. The Bills want to trade up, and now they want to trade down. They want to take a quarterback, a left tackle, a wide receiver, a linebacker, a cornerback and a safety. All bases are officially covered. We're less than 24 hours away, folks.
