As day 3 gets underway at noon today, the Bills are equipped with a pair of fourth-round picks and a pair of fifth-round picks. Here are some of the more attractive players as round four gets going.
Alabama CB/S De’Quan Menzie is a good fourth-round option. Doesn’t have elite speed, but was an effective player for Alabama as a boundary and nickel corner. Used a lot as a blitzer. He made a pre-draft visit to One Bills Drive. Later Texas A&M’s Coryell Judie fits the big size mold at 6’0″, but he doesn’t have a long resume being a JUCO transfer.
Knowing the Bills wanted to get two tackles there are a few of good tackle prospects in Florida State’s Zebrie Sanders and Memphis’ Ronald Leary. Leary had to play guard this past year due to injuries but has more than 30 starts at left tackle. The Bills said they consider Sanders a right tackle, much like Ole Miss’ Bobby Massie who is still on the board as well.
At LB I’ll mention Nigel Bradham again who should still be there toward the end of the fourth round by most accounts. Guy looks wiry strong, but scout Darrell Moody told us earlier in the week that he could play either OLB position in Buffalo’s 4-3. TCU’s Tank Carder, who made a pre-draft visit to One Bills Drive is also still on the board, but might be a late fourth or fifth round pick. And Wake’s Kyle Wilber and N.C. State’s Audie Cole, who both looks like a fits as a 4-3 OLB, but might be more of a 5th or 6th round pick.
Though I’m not sure they’d take another WR, Arkansas’ Greg Childs is an interesting size, speed combo after he ran a 4.41 at his pro day coming off a knee injury. A real good route runner too when it comes to separation. I also like Cal’s Marvin Jones. Wake’s Chris Givens was expected to go higher, but there are off the field concerns there. Good size, speed combo as he had a track background.
