With the most highly anticipated supplemental draft in years staring everyone in the face, the Raiders surprised no one in their willingness to draft Terrelle Pryor, a full round earlier than any other team in the league. They thereby ensured once again they will bring home the gold medal in the league-wide annual 4x100 relay, an event yet to be held in the history of the league—yet one that the Raiders would be a shoo-in to win.
They say speed kills in common talk, but common results have showed anything but a killer Raiders squad.
But enough about Pryor—perhaps any interest that the Bills had in him stemmed from their inability to effectively block in either the pass or the run game. The Bills have to make a move now; they have played with a short deck for too many years now.
In my experience playing, an offensive line's cohesion is one of the most important social developments on the team—rivaled only by the relationship between the quarterback and his go-to receiver and the kicker and the holder (seriously). The Bills offensive line has had enough time to "gel." Even despite the lockout, many of the players have been together for at least two years. It is time to add some new elements to this struggling line.
There are several options on the market and they all are worth at least a tire kick so to speak.
You will notice a common theme here, as the following six guys all play on the offensive line. In this list you will not find Bryant McKinnie, due to character concerns, and Leonard Davis, who will want too much money for Buffalo.
