Kiper goes OT, DE in 2 rd mock for Bills

ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper has put a new two round mock together. He’s got an offensive tackle and defensive end going to Buffalo.

Here’s what Kiper wrote about his two picks for Buffalo.

No. 9 – T Jake Matthews, Texas A&M
I just really like this fit both in scheme and need, and Matthews is the best player left on the board at this point anyway. Despite my early belief that Cordy Glenn would be better on the right side, he’s been a good player at left tackle, which means Matthews likely comes in as the needed solution on the right side. The transition from left tackle to right and vice versa tends to get tossed about as something that’s no big deal, but it can be a tough one for players, which makes Matthews that much more valuable, because he’s demonstrated an ability to, frankly, dominate on either side.

No. 41 – DE Demarcus Lawrence, Boise State
The pass rush is a sneaky need for the Bills, because while they have Mario Williams, they’re thin on the edge if he’s out. Lawrence gives them a much-needed piece to build a deeper rotation. He can have impact.
