ESPN's Todd McShay has already published a 2011 NFL Mock Draft. I understand these things are completely useless, particularly a year in advance of the actual event, but this mock draft is noteworthy in that McShay has the Buffalo Bills holding the No. 1 overall pick in his projection.
Apparently, I'm not the only guy who thinks the Bills are going to stink in 2010.
With that selection, McShay has Buffalo selecting Stanford redshirt sophomore phenom QB Andrew Luck, who along with Washington's Jake Locker (a senior), Arkansas' Ryan Mallett (junior), Florida State's Christian Ponder (senior) and a few others represent the most talented QB crop in college since
JaMarcus Russell and Brady Quinn er, let's go with Vince Young and Matt Leinart. Or maybe even Eli Manning, Philip Rivers and Ben Roethlisberger.
Obviously, the fact that anyone has Buffalo selecting No. 1 overall is far more noteworthy than anything else here. I'm not sure I'd predict that the team will be that bad, but I suppose anything's possible. Let's just hope that McShay is wrong on two counts - that the Bills will be the worst team in the league, and that Luck will enter the '11 NFL Draft. I wouldn't want to see an underclassman QB get hyped up, struggle in 2010, enter the draft anyway, and then go undrafted. Right, Jevan Snead?
