[QUOTE]Here are some general comments. That Raider pick will not be top 10 anymore. I think they turned the corner and could finish around 15 to 18. Right now we would be picking at 12. We can forget about an elite CB unless we made a big move up. BUF doesn't need a QB. Ryan Fitzpatrick has the 2nd highest QB rating at 102. BUF as a new 34 team will go DL. Fairley may be out of reach because BUF could take him. SF and CAR will likely go QB at the top and DET will get Peterson. I am so tired of seeing us fail on short yardage plays. The only time we pick them up is with a Brady QB sneak. Light and Connolly both had poor games, Connolly was pulled for Wendell. How sad is that? Light got beat for 2 sacks and at least one penalty that I saw. We've got to start spending some quality picks on the OL and I'd like to get a big bruising back. John Clay anyone? I know he has a great OL but the man often makes his own holes too. When you are bringing an undrafted rookie S off the bench in Sergio Brown, who actually did okay, you need depth in the defensive back field. Was this another healthy scratch for Darius Butler? Perhaps we should look for a big CB that can play safety and CB. If the season ended today we'd be picking at: 12, 30, 36, 62, 73, 94, 126 Great win for us yesterday but we took some hits in our draft order with both OAK and CAR winning.

I think you are right on the Bills, they passed up plenty QBs last year for a RB and then D. This draft they need D help with all other teams in the East having a ton of fire power on the O. Doesn't look good for NE to be able to get a shut down CB as I had hopped but might not be all bad. I agree, we need OL picked early but with lack of elite 1st round talent solid 2nd and 3rd rounders are probably a way to go here. We've seen a number of late round guys come in and where are they now? 12 Nick Fairley DE/DT 6'4" 300 -
Playing at a very high level against SEC tackles, he should be a nice addition to the DL although current roster is holding their own.30 Nate Solder OT 6'8" 300 -
This line needs studs and physical players if they are moving to a power game. Solder needs development but has all the tools to play L or R tackle.36 Aaron Williams CB 6'1" 192
- Good CB both in man or zone, he probably ends up in the 1st round.62 Orlando Franklin OG 6'6" 318 -
Played LG in college above average pass blocker but better run blocking. 73 Bilal Powell RB 6'0" 215 -
He could be a name to watch but probably will take a 2nd rounder when it's all said and done.94 Greg Romeus OLB 6'5" 265 -
Needs work in coverage but stout against the run, setting the famous edge and above average rusher. Not convinced an OLB will be needed, current roster of no names are developing very well but add Romeus and you have options on each side.126 Armon Binns WR 6'3" 210 -
Big body receiver who is not afraid to go over the middle, good route runner with great hands. Not a burner but good overall speed.5th Rnd Brandon Fusco OC 6'4" 300 - Slippery Rock?! lol yes a center that's catching the eye of some scouts. Plays with an attitude, need some of that on this line.
6th Rnd Jalil Brown CB 6'0" 203
