The draft prognosticators at ESPN both went guard for the Bills at eighth overall. Now NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah has a receiver going to Buffalo, but not the one you might think.
He has West Virginia WR Tavon Austin going to the Bills with the eighth pick. Here’s his synopsis.
Pick No. 8 – Tavon Austin – WR – West Virginia
With the addition of Kevin Kolb, the Bills are free to take the best available player on their draft board. Austin is electric on tape, and his workouts have generated an extraordinary amount of buzz in NFL circles. This offense needs more playmakers, and Austin would be a great fit.
There’s no question that Austin is a dynamic playmaker, but with the Bills looking to move Stevie Johnson inside to the slot, Austin may not be what Buffalo is looking for at the receiver position.
