Buffalo went DT last year with their third overall pick in the form of Marcell Dareus. One of the latest mock drafts out there has the Bills investing in their defensive line again, only it’s not a pass rusher, it’s another DT.
The National Football Post’s Wes Bunting has Buffalo taking LSU DT Michael Brockers. Here’s what he wrote about the pick.
10. Buffalo Bills: LSU DT Michael Brockers
Brockers is a talented defensive lineman capable of maturing into a real game changer up front. He’s got the ability to play all over the Bills D-line early and offers them a lot of 3-4 and 4-3 versatility.
As far as where Brockers is expected to come off the board this pick is in the right range for Brockers’ talent level. And he does offer 4-3, 3-4 defensive scheme versatility as Bunting says. I just think Buffalo has to go pure pass rusher with this pick and USC’s Nick Perry, who Bunting has going 12th to the Seahawks, might be the better fit in terms of the value he’s placed on both prospects.
