Ebrontosaurus

Some time in the past week I had a conversation with nowhammy about the Bills taking Ebron at 9 and how I thought it was a terrible idea. Terrible might be a little hyperbolic but it was in that general vicinity.

In any event, over the past few days i've been doing more reading and research trying to get a feel for guys who will be available for when the Bills stick at 9. Assuming of course that they'll sit.

I still think Buffalo is an impact player early for the 1st pick team. Whaley here with Nix went that route, Whaley and Pitt had a mix but they picked so often in the 20's and 30's they got a lot of beef players. Buffalo's been talking about getting a guy uncovered when he's covered for years as well.

Connecting those dots i've so conveniently laid out in order to try and make a fake educated guess on who the Bills will pick at 9, I think the Bills are actually going to take him at 9.

I highly doubt in this "deep draft" Buffalo is going to be giving up 3+ picks to move up and grab anyone of these guys. Watkins being the exception but certainly no tackle or QB and Buffalo isn't going after Clowney (maybe). When I look at the top 8 guys I see a gap between the top 6 guys and 7 on. If Mike Evans is gone Buffalo can still get the type of athlete in the passing game that they covet, without moving or giving up picks.

I'm not a gigantic fan of Ebron, but it does make sense (regardless of my efforts to combat such thinking) when you start looking at impact type players when the Bills pick.

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