Mayock has DE Ayers in his top 20

Tennessee DE Robert Ayers has been known as a fast riser since his Senior Bowl performance and color NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock impressed.

“He’s the fastest riser in the draft I believe,” said Mayock. “I watched him at the Senior Bowl and his explosion and quickness just blew me away.”

Mayock thought Ayers best game was against Alabama.

“He handled Andre Smith and they even kicked him inside to play some three technique,” said Mayock. “I think he’s the perfect 4-3 end. I’ve got him in my top 20 now.”

Ayers was considered a high second round pick, but might move into the lower third of the first round. If the Bills don’t see a good value at 11, trading back and scooping up Ayers somewhere between 17 and 20 might prove to be a good move.
