The Bills are one of the least-talented teams in the NFL. A hodgepodge of unwanted talent, under-performers, and oft-injured starters, the Bills have several directions in which they could go in the upcoming draft. Many pundits believe that the Bills will take either Blaine Gabbert or Cam Newton, if one is available, as the heir apparent to Ryan Fitzpatrick. However, the Bills have greater needs elsewhere. They could use a franchise left tackle, but none appear to be worthy of the #3 overall pick. With Lee Evans due a large bonus and having the possibility of being cut, A.J. Green would be a nice compliment to Steve Johnson, and Bills' coach Chan Gailey has shown he's not afraid of drafting playmakers. I do think the Bills are hoping Marcell Dareus falls to them, but in this mock, he's already gone, so I believe the Bills will take DE/OLB Von Miller out of Texas A&M.
With the complete and utter bust that is Aaron Maybin, the inability to stay on the field of Shawne Merriman, and the solid but unspectacular play of Chris Kelsay, the Bills lack any sort of consistent pass rush. Von Miller is a pass-rushing specialist with 28 sacks over his last two seasons. I think he's a bit of a reach here, but with Dareus off the board and Nick Fairley being undersized, Miller makes the most sense. He's a freakish athlete who has shown an ability to find the ball.
