I think the bills are going to roll with what they have and maybe pick up an OT in the later rounds like 3 or 4. The bills always tend to go OT late. I am not a fan of pears but having Hairston coming back which they planned on having him start at Rt before his injury last year can be a nice upgrade if healthy

Explosive playmaker, ran a high 4.3 at the combine and can make big catches. However, he isn't big, only 6'0". Plus I can't see him being a top 10 pick.


I don't put too much stock into pre draft visits

Hi

We're voting on the Bills pick at 9 in the draft section.

http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=17955808

It would be great to have your thoughts and votes.

Cheers,

GFW

Trentwannabe none of those guys came in to Buffalo for a visit yet. As fans we only know of 11 of the 30. This is his predictions or hopes of coming in.

Tommy: You should put some trust in to the pre-draft visits as the Bills have drafted their 1st round picks 4 years in a row who have visited 1 bills drive and 13 picks of the last 4 years have been pre-draft visits. I would say thats almost half of the Bills picks.

I see him or Ebron being the two most likely candidates in a Bills uniform on draft day.

I don't think we can overlook Taylor Lewan either.

Matthews
Robinson
Evans
Lewan
Ebron

would be my current Big Board

Well we did pick Cordy Glenn in the 2nd round. So it wouldnt surprise me at all if we took an OT at 9.

Yes its not the "Sexy" pick, but WR in this draft is deeper than OT is in this draft.

I would LOVE, Jake Matthews in round 1 and Jordan Matthews in round 2.

I wouldn't mind getting another WR in the 3rd or later... like Latimer. But TE is a more pressing need right now after the Williams trade.

Right now we have Mike Williams, Stevie Johnson, Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin, and TJ Graham. I kind of want to see Goodwin get some playing time this year. We draft a WR in the 2nd round and he would rarely see the field unless an injury takes place. I wouldn't mind drafting someone to replace Graham but Graham would just be the 5th receiver so it doesn't really matter to me either way.

Seferian-Jenkins or Amaro would make a lot more sense to me.

Mathews/Mathews or Mathews/Seferian-Jenkins makes me a happy man.

I think Graham, Easley, Barden, Elliot and Hogan are fighting for one spot maybe 2.

If the bills go after an OT in the draft I really like Cyrus Kouandjio he is ranked the 6th OT and I think he will be available in the 3rd round. He is a big guy, which marrone loves, his footwork is excellent for his size too. He would be a 1st rounder but he has had some durability issues with a knee issue in 2011 and a shoulder surgery in 2013. I just dont see the bills drafting Mathews at 9 because of his size, but Im also against drafting a RT this early. I think there are more important needs especially with Hairston coming back from injury.
