Maybe we will have a shot at Locker or Mallett next year, could work out well.

Thomas at OLB?

The Patriots released Thomas. Could he be tempted into coming to Buffalo? We're not exactly set at OLB...

Nix didn't give consideration to higher-profile prospects such as Jimmy Clausen, Colt McCoy or Tim Tebow when the Bills were on the clock. "Never batted an eye," Nix said. "Just went right on. I mean, obviously, you talk about them, and we did discuss one or two. ... But we just didn’t think it was best for us at this time."

Theres a new attitude in Buffalo, and I like it

With Nix, Gailey and Wilson fully recognizing the state of the team and being committed to making the changes necessary to bring excitement back to Buffalo, it won't be long before they're a contender again in the AFC East.

Shutdown Corner AFC East Review

Buffalo Bills: Getting Clemson running back C.J. Spiller(notes) with the ninth overall pick was a very wise move - there are few better short-term fixes for a line-impaired offense than a guy who can bounce outside with ridiculous speed, play in the slot, and split out wide once in a while. Buffalo addressed those line needs later in the draft with Ed Wang(notes) and Kyle Calloway(notes) - Calloway, who played opposite Bryan Bulaga(notes) at Iowa, could be a real sleeper. Arkansas State end Alex Carrington(notes) has pass-rush ability, but the other feature of this Bills draft should be DT Torell Troup(notes), the Central Florida widebody who was climbing up a lot of boards and will fit perfectly as a nose tackle in the team's 3-4 defensive scheme.

Ross Tucker Draft Recap

Buffalo Bills What I liked: Not bowing to public pressure and drafting a quarterback early just because the fans and media wanted them to. Levi Brown from Troy in the seventh round gives them a legitimate developmental prospect for 2011 if their current crop of signal callers proves they can't get it done in 2010. What I didn't: C.J. Spiller in the first round. He better end up being the playmaker that Buffalo craved because running back is one of the few positions of strengths on this football team. Moving forward: The Bills look at Brian Brohm as the quarterback prospect who can potentially play winning football at the game's most important position. He'll need to because Trent Edwards and Ryan Fitzpatrick appear to be better suited for backup roles.

Post Draft Analysis NFL Network Mora vs. Dukes on Bills

1

This video doesn't cover the great back in forth foder by Jim Mora, former coach of Seattle and Atlanta and Jamie "I know I know it all" Dukes on the NFL Network. I believe it is on NFL Draft Recap and it is being played this afternoon and evening (probably all week long too) on NFL Network. Anyway, as the video about indicates at the end of the clip... Jamie "know it all" Dukes doesn't think the Bills did anything in the draft and were the biggest losers because they did not get a QB or a OT in the draft this year... "HELLO Know it all Dukes", to my recollection, the Bills did draft two OT's and one QB in the draft this year. Anyway, Mora started in on Dukes not to the fact that the Bills actually did draft those positions, but how Dukes can be so certain that the Bills didn't do what they wanted and that they got the best value at the time of their picks to what they were trying to do. Mora just about goes off on Dukes for being such an idiot. It is great because you can see them both get really steemed and it takes Fran Charles to literally break them up. I bet after the show they went at it some more... Personally I could care less about what some draft analysis says about the picks... but love to see when some guy like Dukes who loves to hear himself talk, gets put in his place by a guy that probably really does know what the hell is going on and has been in war rooms to live the decision making that happens with teams. Go check in out and feel free to comment if you saw the back and forth with Mora and Dukes and know what I am talking about.
