The Bills actually got some good news the day after they found out Donovan McNabb will not be playing for them: the Lions acquired Rob Sims from the Seahawks.
The reason this move is good news for Buffalo is that it makes it more likely that they will be able to land one of the four tackles in this year's draft considered to be in the "top tier" (Okung, Bulaga, Williams, Davis).
With the Redskins acquiring McNabb, it almost ensures that Washington's pick at No. 4 overall will be an offensive tackle. And until Sims was acquired by Detroit, there was speculation that the Lions could look into moving Jeff Backus inside to guard and drafting Russel Okung at No. 2. If that had happened, two of the top tackles would be gone in the top four picks and Buffalo might have been left without one to choose from at No. 9.
Now, though, they are able to land Anthony Davis from Rutgers. Davis has some character concerns, but his talent is undeniable and Buffalo needs a premier left tackle to shore up their line.
For the record, I have the following tackles off the board before Buffalo's selection: Russel Okung (No. 4 - Washington), Trent Williams (No. 5 - Kansas City), Bryan Bulaga (No. 6 - Seattle), Bruce Campbell (No. 8 - Oakland).
