Buffalo Bills: Building on a Young Team

Craig SchiedloCorrespondent IMarch 24, 2008

The Buffalo Bills have the 11th overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. 

This year they need to address the defensive side of the ball. Who should they choose? 

I think that a defensive lineman or a cornerback would be the most logical selection. 

The best player available at the 11th overall pick would be Mike Jenkins, a cornerback out of South Florida.  He brings a lot to the table. He has 4.49 forty speed, is 6'0" tall, and weighs 200 pounds. 

In the second round, they might go after defensive lineman Kentwan Balmer. He is 6'5" tall, weighing in at 298 pounds.  Balmer has a tall, lean frame with long arms, thick thighs, and muscular calves.

Importantly, he has enough room to carry at least an additional 20 pounds of bulk without the extra weight impacting his foot speed. 

The Bills still will need to address a couple more of positions, but this would be a good start to their becoming a legitimate playoff team.
