The Buffalo Bills completed their 2011 draft yesterday, so it is now time to look at what kind of a job that Bills General Manager Buddy Nix and his staff did.
Coming in to the draft, there was no secret that the Bills still had a large number of holes that need attention and they would not be able to address all of them in this one single draft. They could however, attempt to add some starters to a defense that needed an infusion of new blood and talent. They could also take advantage of the exposure they had to the South team at the Senior Bowl and add some key seniors from the draft class.
The Bills also had the chance to add some versatility and depth to the team, when it came time for such picks in the latter stages of day three. We will go through the draft class and address all of these issues in this presentation.
For a comparison standpoint, we will also list the five immediate picks that went right after each of the Bills selection, for posterity sake.
