2011 NFL Draft: The Buffalo Bills' Fine Nine

New, comments

We are 53 days away from day one of the 2011 NFL Draft. That still seems like quite the wait, but that time will fly now that we're debuting the crux of our draft coverage from now through April 28: the Fine Nine.

What is the Fine Nine, you ask? Simply put, it's the nine prospects at the top of this year's draft class that we'll be running a series of posts on. All of them, we believe, should be in the conversation for the Buffalo Bills' pick at No. 3 overall. Is it possible that the Bills pick someone outside of the Fine Nine? Certainly. (It would figure.) We're hoping that we lengthen the odds by covering these nine deserving players extensively.

Without further ado, the names of our Fine Nine prospects - and after the jump, you can find their Combine weigh-in and workout numbers. Much, much more to come on these prospects over the next two months. Any names you're nervous about leaving out?
