We’ve known for a long time that the Bills will pick 10th overall in the 2012 NFL draft. What is still unknown is who will pick right before and right after the Bills in round one.
A coin flip is still needed to determine if Carolina or Miami will pick eighth and then ninth respectively. Meanwhile behind the Bills at 11th and 12th overall are Kansas City and Seattle. A coin flip will also be needed to determine who will draft 11th right after Buffalo and who will draft 12th.
Those coin flips typically take place at the NFL Combine, which runs Feb. 22nd-28th.
There was a prevailing thought that the Bills would rotate between picking 8th, 9th or 10th in each round with Carolina and Miami, but Buffalo had a stronger strength of schedule than those two teams. Going on reverse strength of schedule Carolina and Miami will be slotted ahead of the Bills in every round with Buffalo picking 10th from start to finish in the draft.
