Yet another mock draft with another offensive tackle pick, but what is most interesting is what they listed as an alternative selection.
This one put together by draft site Walterfootball.com has Buffalo taking a Big 10 offensive tackle with the 10th pick. Here’s what they wrote. What I find most interesting is the listing of Boston College LB Luke Kuechly as an alternative. Kuechly has not been seen much on the mock radar for Buffalo. That being said the only way I think he’s a consideration for Buffalo at 10 is if the value at OT or WR doesn’t fit for the Bills at that point in round one.
10. Buffalo – Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
I’ve slotted a defensive end here for the past billion or so updates, but it doesn’t appear that the Bills will be going that way anymore after signing Mario Williams and Mark Anderson. General manager Buddy Nix can now look elsewhere.
The left tackle position has to be addressed. They paid tons of money to Ryan Fitzpatrick this past season, so protecting him is their No. 1 priority now that they’ve shored up their pass rush.
*** OTHER 2012 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***
1. Michael Floyd, WR – The Bills also have to make sure they give Fitzpatrick as many weapons as possible.
2. Luke Kuechly, OLB – Buffalo needs a third linebacker to pair with Nick Barnett and Kelvin Sheppard.
