Bills going best player by need

Paul KasprzakContributor IApril 14, 2010

According to the Buffalo News, Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix addressed the media at their annual pre-draft and addressed the projected mock drafts that have the Bills taking a offensive tackle.

After reading the article it is clear that the Bills will take the best player on their board according to need.

“This is the point I’m trying to make. When it comes time, if we think there’s two left tackles in the draft that can come in at No. 9 and make an immediate impact, can play from day one, that’s what we expect from a top 10 draft choice. That’s what we want. Now, if one of those two are not there, then we would look at the next need we have, which might be quarterback, it might be something else. It might be running back or whatever. If the guys we think can come in and make that impact at nine are not there, then we’re going to take the best player on the board,” Nix said

Nix is taking the right approach as in the top 10 it is not about the position that you take it is about the impact of the player as a player at that position should be able to usually start right away.

In the end, for the Bills it will come down to quarterback Jimmy Clausen or defensive tackle Dan Williams as those will be the two available players at position the Bills needs.
