Previous Pick: Marcell Dareus, DL Alabama
I still think Dareus would be a good pick for the Bills. He fills a massive need for a run-stuffer and he is one of the best players in the draft.
The only reason I moved him out of this pick is because I no longer think that he will be available at No. 3. Both Carolina and Denver could use defensive line help. The way things stand now, I think Carolina picks Cam Newton at one and Denver takes Dareus at two.
If that scenario plays out, I believe Buffalo has to take Von Miller. You could make an argument for Patrick Peterson or Blaine Gabbert here, but Miller is the combination of need and value.
Miller is the real deal. He is one of the most athletic players in the draft. In college, he was mainly seen as a pass rush specialist, but he will have to do more than that in the NFL. He proved he can do that in the Senior Bowl.
Senior Bowl rules prevent linebackers from blitzing the quarterback. Miller was arguably the best player there. He made plays all over the field and showed he could drop back in coverage.
He would provide immediate help for a Bills defense that was ranked in the bottom half on sacks.
The thought of Von Miller and a rejuvenated Shawne Merriman on the field at the same time should give Tom Brady nightmares.
Current Pick: Von Miller, OLB Texas A&M
