Nick and I are both actively involved in the GM Mocks...

something interesting to note, we both selected Reuben Foster at #10. Jonathan Allen fell to #8 in the 2nd TCMD.

how would the closed group of Bills fans on FF react if the Bills were able to add Foster in the draft?

Id be super upset. That would give us 3 MLBs and no OLB. Bad enough we will have to move Preston outside.

And espevially questioning his character after he lost his cool in the biggest interview of his career at the combine

Foster is a beast and could play both inside and outside LB. I doubt he falls out of the top 3 though. Even with the media making a big deal about a small issue at the combine. I expect him, allen, and garrett to be the top 3 picks in the draft unless some team reaches for a qb.

Reggie is better suited for WLB tbh..

Preston at SLB.. and Foster in the middle is a really good LB core.

character concerns were blown out of proportion, the players that were around him at the time all took to his defense..

i understand you not valuing a LB tho..

I have no problem with his combine outrage but I don't want a LB that high. I'd much rather go CB, S or WR which are much bigger needs at the moment.

How is Reggie better suited for WLB? The big knocks on him as a draft prospect were his lack of speed and questionable coverage ability.

Yeah I was kind of confused by that as well. I don't think he'd be a good fit there, especially after coming off a knee injury.

exactly.. so you don't want to have him coming up short on sacks, and making it to the ball carrier on the strong side..

strong side is where you want your best physical LB. Ragland is not that, Foster would be. Ragland is going to be good in his own right. Thomas Davis like.. where Foster actually is like Patrick Willis.

Yea Foster is not going top 3 Rolling Eyes

The way the board fell for me I was sort of suckered into taking him in that particular mock. Lattimore, Hooker, Adams, Davis and Mike Williams were all gone. I would've selected any of those guys over Foster (except MAYBE Lattimore after reading about his injury problems).

I wouldn't be upset if that actually happened, but It depends on how the board falls. He's a Patrick Willis in my eyes, so from a talent stand point, we can't be upset. Him and Ragland would be scary!

I'll post my mock results when I get home later so you can all see why Foster was my choice.

I would have taken Watson, Peppers or Sidney jones in that scenerio

Where are you getting this from? Ragland is exactly that. Thomas Davis was drafted as a converted safety with 4.5 speed and a 7.1 3 cone. He's had seven interceptions over the last two years. Ragland is nothing like him. Ragland was so bad in coverage that Alabama would pull him on third downs.

Ragland in a MLB thumped. Not a WLB and with that being said let's focus on needs at 10.

Mike Williams, Jabrill Peppers, DeShaun Watson are my top 3 realistic guys

Foster is a perfect fit for WLB. His speed would be unreal outside.

If Preston is starting we're screwed.

With how deep the draft is at DB and WR I wouldn't hate getting a potential pro bowler at 10.

I wouldn't mind it at all if he fell to us at 10. Our LBing core would be set for years but I'd rather get Mike Williams if he is there so Tyrod has another weapon on offense. Then go D the rest of the draft IMO

Sounds like the Bills are close to signing Lorenzo Alexander to an extension.

I've seen some people say it would complete our LB corps with P. Brown being the WLB.

Am I missing something or what because I can't see Brown being effective as a sideline to sideline backer especially at 255lbs.
