Gil Brandt of NFL.com is one of the longest-tenured - and therefore most respected - NFL Draft analysts out there. He participated in a live chat at NFL.com during the noon hour on Tuesday, and was asked about his thoughts on what the Buffalo Bills should address with their top pick this April.
"If I'm Buffalo, I think I'd take a defensive lineman in the first round, or certainly a defensive player," Brandt said during the chat.
Brandt then went on to name four top-flight defensive linemen as quality considerations for the Bills. Two ends (Clemson's Da'Quan Bowers and North Carolina's Robert Quinn) made the list, as did two tackles (Auburn's Nick Fairley and Alabama's Marcell Dareus).
There will eventually be hundreds of prominent opinions on what the Bills should do in April, but Brandt's is one worth prioritizing.
