Trade:
Bills trade their second and third for pick number 22. They get their QB. 

Draft:
1A- Cordarrelle Patterson WR Tennessee: Unbelievable athletic ability. Not quite ready to play outside and run a full route tree. Will take time to develop, and with proper coaching he can be in the top 3 at his position. Has all the physical tools in the world. His tools show up on tape. Needs to polish his game.

2A- Larry Warford G Kentucky: Massive man. Gets great push. Athletic for a man his size. Great all around blocker.

2B- Khaseem Greene WLB Rutgers: Fast, athletic OLB who can hit. Very productive. Will be a huge asset defending against running QBs. 

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uhb83_ASFuk

3A- Bacarri Rambo FS Georgia: Think OJ Atogwe. Pretty much the same player. Will take the ball away.

3B- DJ Swearinger SS South Carolina: Not afraid to hit. Solid in coverage as well. 

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=B2klvZNqJg8

4- Christine Michael RB Texas A&M: Size/speed guy. Plays fast in games. Has power to break tackles and agility to make tacklers miss. Exciting prospect. 

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=LCVqxFeWFoU

5- Kwame Geathers DT Georgia: Big, strong, athletic DT with upside. Rams need a run stuffing rotational DT. 

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=x1ZrFOxQXz0

6- Marquess Wilson WR Washington State: First/second round talent, but off the field issues kill his stock. Guy can separate. Has a second gear. Can go up and get the ball. 

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Rdh5zP9JCPo

7- Rod Sweeting CB Georgia Tech: Caught my eye in bowl game. Very fast combine time. 

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=st8LBBL8SJM

QB- Sam Bradford
RB- Daryl Richardson/Isaiah Pead/Christine Michael/Terrance Gannaway
FB/TE2- Lance Kendricks
TE1- Jared Cook
X- Brian Quick/Marquess Wilson
Y- Chris Givens
Slot- Cordarrelle Patterson
LT- Jake Long
LG- Larry Warford 
C- Chris Wells
RG- Harvey Dahl
RT- Roger Saffold

DE- Chris Long
DT- Michael Brockers
DT- Kendall Langford
DE- Robert Quinn
WLB- Khaseem Greene
MLB- James Laurinaitis
SLB- Jo-Lonn Dunbar
CB1- Janoris Jenkins
CB2- Courtland  Finnegan
CB3- Trumaine Johnson
FS- Bacarri Rambo
SS- DJ Swearinger

Notes:
- Plan to use a spread offensive attack. Guys in the draft and on the roster fit this scheme. 

- Used CBS.com's round projections as a guideline. 

Draft Regrets:
-Not getting backup C. Shelley Smith will have to take Turner's place. 

- Not getting a CB earlier

Don't love Patterson, but would be good with this draft.

I dont either, I just have a hard time seeing us pick at 22. I had read where the Bills have discussed moving back into the first to get their QB, so that's why I used them.

Is it just me or does anyone else cringe when they see Cordarelle Patterson as our first round pick? We drafted a raw wideout in Quick last year, why do it again? We can sugar coat the situation all we want but our receiving game is pretty terrible. Quick is unproven and Patterson is the same type of receiver. We need production NOW! let's be honest with ourselves here!!!

My favourite mock so far- all fantastic picks. Yes, there are doubts about Patterson but the same could be said about every player coming out of college and into the NFL.

Patterson might not be the most refined WR in the draft but he is not as raw as Quick was. Quick didnt even have a WRs coach.

Why does everyone complain about Patterson? Seriously guys why wouldn't we want a WR that has that high of a upside? I know we want playoffs and a great team next year but why not have a Superbowl team in a couple because our WRs are developed and better.

While Patterson is raw, his athleticism allows him to be productive while not being a polished WR. Quick isn't the type of player who can return kicks or take an end around to the house. I think Patterson can come in next yr and play the slot and be productive. He has the skills to play inside, and a full route tree won't be necessary. Also he played in the SEC last yr which is the closest to the NFL as you get.

Also we pay our assistant coaches good money to coach guys up. Get them the talent, and let the coaches apply the polish.

How'd they do with Quick last year?

Sorry, I'm of the opinion that Bradford needs weapons ready to contribute day one. I can see Patterson contributing immediately on KR/PR duties, but I think he is a season or two from contributing a whole lot as a WR.

I'd like more then that from our first pick in the draft personally.

Not good I will give you that. I just think Patterson's raw physical ability is on a totally different level than Quick and he can be used a lot more.

Also keep in mind Quick only played 1 yr of high school ball and played in a college without a playbook of WR coach. That is much more raw than Patterson, who was able to learn enough of the playbook to be a contributor in his first game at Tennessee against a CB who will be playing on Sunday's.

Looks real good although I'm not a big fan of Christine Michael. A lot of injury issues and character questions.

I like his upside. I personally don't get too much into the off the field stuff because I have no clue on what's really happening without talking to the player, coaches, teammates, equiptment guys, ect. Alot of times a media report will snow ball and it will get like that old game "telephone" where the message gets so distorted. So as an average fan i keep it at what i see on the field. Not knocking those who take character into effect at all, just my personal doings. Injury history is bothersome, but in the 4 round I think he is a good risk. I was considering putting another injury guy there (Lattimore). I like both of their upsides.
