NFL.com’s Bucky Brooks mock draft has what is becoming a more and more popular pick for the Bills at 3 in his mock draft.
After having Cam Newton first overall to Carolina and Denver taking Marcell Dareus, Brooks has the Bills selecting Texas A&M LB Von Miller third. Here’s his reasoning behind the pick.
Chan Gailey would love to find an interior defender to anchor his 3-4 scheme, but Miller’s pass rushing prowess would provide an instant impact to a unit that has notoriously struggled to get to the quarterback. Miller’s speed, quickness and disruptive skills could evoke memories of Cornelius Bennett coming off the edge for Bills’ fans.
I’ m not ready to tab Miller a Bennett clone, but there is a lot of momentum building among mock draft crafters for Miller to the Bills at 3.
