With names like Von Miller and Cam Newton being plugged into Buffalo third overall pick in mock drafts everywhere, there has been little talk about Auburn DL Nick Fairley. But Bills GM Buddy Nix in a live chat on Sportsnet.ca today (Tuesday) was asked specifically about Fairley and had high praise for the SEC Defensive Player of the Year.
“I think he’s the best pass rusher in the defensive line group,” said Nix. “He is an impact guy that you can find a place for no matter what you play.”
In a year where the defensive line contingent is perhaps the deepest it has been in a generation, Nix’s comment is saying a lot about the high regard Buffalo has for him.
