There are NFL teams that have a top choice mapped out come day two of the NFL draft, but a lot of times that player isn’t there when it’s your turn to pick. For the Bills their top player was there for the start of round two in Aaron Williams.
“We had two and we needed them both and we really liked both of them so it’s a no brainer,” said Nix. “You can’t lose.”
It was a no brainer all the more when the Patriots took Virginia CB Ras-I Dowling with the 33rd overal selection because Buffalo’s top two choices for their pick at 34 were still on the board.
I asked Nix after the Patriots took Dowling at 34 if his top choice was still on the board and this was his answer.
“Absolutely, and of the two that were there Dowling wasn’t one of them,” said Nix.
So Buffalo’s top two choices for pick 34 were still on the board. Naturally Nix kept their second choice for the 34th pick to himself.
