Buffalo Selects Clemson OT Chris Hairston with Second 4th-Round Selection

Chris Hairston

The Bills have finally taken an offensive player in the 2011 draft, using the #122 pick to select Clemson OT Chris Hairston. Hairston was a three-year starter for the Tigers at left tackle. He certainly has the size of an NFL tackle: 6’6”, 326 pounds. He’s got a solid work ethic: he wasn’t really recruited out of high school but came on strong at Clemson, winning their strength training award in 2010.

While he was a left tackle in college, I think that he projects as a right tackle in the NFL. He’s not a fantastic athlete, but has shown some strength in the run blocking game. Harrison’s a solid all-around guy, and certainly a pretty decent value this late for a team that always seems to be thin at OT.

By the way, this is the pick the Bills acquired in the Marshawn Lynch trade.
