For the Bills there was concern that Marcell Dareus would be scooped up by the Denver Broncos at two, but from the information they had gathered late in pre-draft process, they discovered they stood a good chance of getting the man at they wanted all along.
I asked Bills GM Buddy Nix if those first two picks went along the lines of the scenario they had mapped out.
“Exactly like we envisioned it, really,” said Nix. “I don’t want to tell you that we knew something that anybody else didn’t know. I think a lot of people had it figured that way. We were hoping Dareus would be there. We kind of thought he wouldn’t be and the last couple of days, it looked like it might go this way.”
Obviously something changed in Denver, which was where most prognosticators had as a lock for where Dareus would end up. That’s not to say that the Broncos didn’t get themselves a good player, but Dareus best addresses what Buffalo needs to fix, which is a run front in need of more playmakers.
