Tight end the pick for Bills in new mock draft

Posted by Chris Brown on February 6, 2014 – 11:00 am

While one mock draft at CBSSports.com has Buffalo taking UB LB Khalil Mack with the ninth overall pick, another has the Bills taking a tight end.

CBSSports.com’s Dane Brugler, has Buffalo taking UNC TE Eric Ebron, widely considered the best tight end in the draft class this year. Here’s his analysis.

9. BUFFALO BILLS

(6-10)
Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina: The Bills need to add a big, physical presence in the receiving game, whether at wide receiver or tight end. Ebron is a freak athlete who will instantly help the Bills offense and second-year quarterback EJ Manuel.

Perhaps most interesting is that this mock draft has four quarterbacks coming off the board before Buffalo picks at nine. If this is a scenario that pans out it will push a lot of the top flight talent down the board to the Bills at nine.
