McShay mock goes WR for Bills

Posted by Chris Brown on March 29, 2012 – 11:35 am

It’s become more and more popular with some of the more recent mock drafts, and ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay is leaning in that direction as well. After a bevy of offensive tackle picks at 10 for Buffalo, McShay goes wide receiver.

In McShay’s fourth mock draft he has the Bills taking Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd. Here’s what he wrote.

10. Buffalo – Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

Floyd is a bit of a reach here, but no more so than OTs Mike Adams and Jonathan Martin. It’s a tough call on the Bills’ top two needs in this scenario, and they could look to trade down in a situation like this. They could also pull the trigger on a value pick such as Coples.

Floyd is widely considered the second best receiver in the draft class after Oklahoma State’s Justin Blackmon. With 4.47 speed and a 6’3″ 220-pound frame he could certainly be an option to line up opposite Stevie Johnson on the outside. Whether the Bills see him as proper value for the 10th overall pick is the big question.

Perhaps even more interesting is McShay has Buffalo taking Brock Osweiler, the quarterback from Arizona State in round 2 with the 41st overall pick. Osweiler did meet with the Bills at the NFL Combine, but so did a host of other players including QB Robert Griffin III.

QB met with Bills

Posted by Chris Brown on February 25, 2012 – 4:06 pm

One of the quarterback prospects here at the NFL Combine said he met with the Bills.

Arizona State QB Brock Osweiler confirmed that he met with the Bills last night among other teams here in Indianapolis.

Osweiler has outstanding physical attributes and at 6’6″ and 240 pounds he has prototype size. The drawback is the Arizona State product is very much a work in progress. Osweiler made only 15 starts in his collegiate career. He did play in a spread offense at Arizona State, which would make the transition to an offense like Buffalo’s not all that big.

He’s been forecast anywhere from the second to fourth round. Osweiler said he will not throw here at the Combine due to a sprained foot.
