New mock goes LB for Bills at 10

The choices for the Bills at pick 10 have ranged from QB to safety to wide receiver to linebacker. There’s been a common name associated with the Bills regarding linebacker prospects at 10 in Reuben Foster. But the latest mock draft from Rotoworld went with a different linebacker for Buffalo in round one.

Rotoworld.com’s draft analyst Josh Norris went with Temple’s Haason Reddick, who has been of the biggest pre-draft risers since his monster week at the Senior Bowl in late January. Reddick proved himself capable of moving from a defensive end role at Temple to an off the ball linebacker. A solid workout at the Combine only helped boost his draft stock all the more.

Here was Norris’ reasoning for his Reddick pick for Buffalo.

10. Buffalo Bills – LB Haason Reddick, Temple – Linebacker is a pivotal position in Sean McDermott’s defense, and athleticism is a critical factor for linebackers to star in the system. Neither Preston Brown or Reggie Ragland scream “range” like Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis. Reddick offers that athleticism (93rd percentile) as well as possible blitzing or pass rushing possibilities.
