Mock has OT to Bills

Posted by Chris Brown on February 10, 2010 – 12:01 pm

Corey Chavous, a former NFL safety and draft analyst for NFL Network has put his own mock draft together for 2010. And for the Bills he has them taking an offensive tackle with the ninth overall pick.

Chavous has Buffalo taking Iowa OT Bryan Bulaga. Bulaga is widely viewed as one of the most NFL ready tackles in the class while the upside is deemed higher by many for Anthony Davis and Bruce Campbell.

It should be noted in Chavous’ mock he has Russell Okung off the board at 4 to Washington, Anthony Davis off the board at 6 to Seattle, and I believe an OT is very likely for the Seahawks at 6 with Walter Jones a good bet to retire. He then has Trent Williams going 8 overall to the Raiders, which might be a little high in most eyes, but hey it’s Oakland.

So with the run on OTs happening early in Chavous’ mock, he has Buffalo taking Bulaga. I like Bulaga, provided he checks out medically (thyroid condition, shoulder injuries). He drive blocks guys 10 to 15 yards downfield at times. He also steers pass rushers wide around the pocket well. For a tall guy I think he’s pretty good at redirecting too. Whether he’s worthy of the ninth overall pick however, is up to the Bills and the Bills only.
