2011 NFL Mock Draft: Will the Buffalo Bills on Top Offensive Player?
Quarterback Not Ideal Pick in 2011 NFL Mock Draft
Kiper: Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama
McShay: Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri
Banks: Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
Kirwan: Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
Rang: Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
My take: Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn
As usual, no one seems to know what the Bills are doing.
To be honest, any one of the above moves make sense. Newton and Gabbert are great prospects and it doesn't seem likely that Ryan Fitzpatrick is a long-term solution. But I do think he is very capable and can produce for the club the next few seasons.
And Peterson would also be an outstanding acquisition for the Bills, but it's hard to justify taking a cornerback with the third overall pick when your run defense is the worst in the NFL.
That's why it's a defensive tackle for the Bills. They'd love to have Dareus, but he's too good to slide by the top two spots.
Fairley isn't quite as stout and has been downgraded by many because of work ethic and his interviews, but, according to McShay, "he's the best interior pass rusher in the class."
And just his presence will make the Bills terrible run defense better, which should be Dave Wannstedt's top priority,
