Daniel Jeremiah Mock Draft Has Lane Johnson To Buffalo Bills

USA TODAY Sports

The former NFL scout believes that the Bills should take Lane Johnson and flip Cordy Glenn to right tackle, where he has "perennial All-Pro" potential. Hmm...

My personal favorite 2013 NFL Draft analyst, Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com, has released another mock draft now that the Combine is over, and in it he has an interesting pick for the Buffalo Bills, to say the least. Oklahoma left tackle Lane Johnson is projected to the Bills with the No. 8 overall pick by the former league scout.

The idea, Jeremiah says, is to take Johnson and flip second-year pro Cordy Glenn over to right tackle, where Jeremiah believes Glenn has "perennial All-Pro" potential. That idea certainly isn't without merit, as the thought of the Bills employing two highly athletic bookend tackles is enticing - particularly as the team braces itself for the departure of its best lineman, Andy Levitre, at left guard.

Johnson certainly has the type of athleticism that the Bills value with their Top 10 draft picks. A former quarterback and tight end, Johnson stands 6'6" and 303 pounds with 35-inch arms, and he's a phenomenal athlete, clocking a 4.72-second 40-yard dash time and a 1.61-second 10-yard split in Indianapolis last weekend. He also threw up 28 bench reps and looked great in field drills, for good measure.

GM Buddy Nix has gushed on record enough about Glenn to very reasonably believe that the team sees the 2012 second-round pick as the franchise left tackle they drafted him to be, so it's questionable how into the idea of moving him to the right side the team might be. Still, "bookend tackles" is not a phrase Bills fans have heard for ages.

What say you, Bills fans, to the idea of taking a high-upside left tackle with the No. 8 pick, moving Glenn to right tackle, and potentially having a dominant pair of bookend tackles with outstanding athleticism?
