Villanova OL Ben Ijalana hasn’t had the best of luck in this pre-draft process as a sports hernia has kept him from performing for scouts and NFL personnel execs, but Bills fans made it clear they wouldn’t mind seeing him in Buffalo duds in 2011.
After watching the Countdown to Draft Day position preview for guards and centers, Bills fans texted who they felt was the best fit for Buffalo and Ijalana won in a landslide getting an astounding 75% of the vote.
Ijalana, who played tackle for the Wildcats, is seen by some NFL clubs as a guard in the NFL, but despite being a shade under 6’4″ he has 36-inch arms, among the longest in the draft class. That combined with his feet, which several teams feel are good enough to play tackle in the NFL might convince teams to at least try him at tackle at the pro level.
Our Countdown to Draft Day position previews continue today (Wed.) with the outside linebackers. So be sure to watch and then text in who you feel is the best fit for Buffalo by following the instructions at the end of the video.
