Countdown to the 2010 NFL Draft

by Steve

Wait what, the NFL draft is in a week? God damn. Why the hell is it on a god damn Thursday again? (Rd. 1: Thurs., April 22, 7:30 p.m. ET Rds. 2-3: Fri., April 23, 6 ET Rds. 4-7: Sat., April 24, 10 a.m. ET) Sabres game 5 is also Friday night so get your second tv out of the closet. Um, but who are the Bills going to draft? Here is the first in several posts breaking down the 2010 NFL Draft.

The needs are obvious. quarterback, wide receiver, tackle, guard, defensive end,, defensive tackle, linebacker, safety, holy shit this team blows. Drafting at nine isn't complicated. Take the most talented player at the biggest need or most likely to make an impact immediately. (Also we are assuming the Bills aren't moving out of nine even though they should)

There is no quarterback in this draft worth a top 10 pick so throw all of them out. There is likely to be three offensive tackles taken in the top eight so throw that idea out. Wide receiver, no way, guard, never, and the Bills took a DE/OLB hybrid tweener last year so that has to be out also. So that basically leaves two positions, inside linebacker or nose tackle.

Both positions are glaring needs in this new 3-4 scheme. There is absolutely no NT on the roster, Poz is injury prone, Mitchell isn't good and there isn't much else unless you really like Andra Davis or Nic Harris.

Meeting this criteria the only two or three players worth a look are Terrence Cody NT Alabama, Dan Williams NT Tennessee, and Rolando McClain ILB Alabama. I'm not going to waste time with this post breaking down these dudes so I'll cut to the chase...

My Pick:

Rolando McClain


  1. lololololololol dick jauron jauron jauron


    Janis, what are you basing the statement "no quarterback is worth a top 10 pick" on?

    Draft Clausen unless you really think there will be someone better in the draft next year. We don't have a QB and obviously aren't going to be really aggressive trying to get one via trade (Cutler, McNabb, etc.). Sometimes you gotta take a chance.


  3. Dan Williams should be a 6th rd pick as should Cody. Defensive tackles don't matter. McClain probably should be mid 1st rd pick. If no QB deserves a top 10 pick then none of these bums deserve a top 10 pick either. QB's matter get Clausen or accept Fitzpatrick.

  4. sabres win game 1 last night and no post? wow must be tax season. Get your act together janis

  5. basing it on skill/talent/ability they are all losers too small not good enough coming out of a fuckin spread offense a bad conference or no conference, give it up
