Recapping the 2011 Draft With

Recently I talked with our good friend Jesse Bartolis from about Buffalo’s 2011 Draft. (Jesse is nice enough to occasionally contribute a guest post to BLD as well.)

Jesse asked me a range of questions, including my thoughts on Marcell Dareus, Buffalo’s past draft failures, my favorite Bills selection in the 2011 Draft, and how I expect the Bills to preform on the field in 2011. Here’s how it turned out:


1)  Last year the Bills drafted with their first three picks: C.J. Spiller, Torelle Troupe, and Alex Carrington. This year they went Marcell Dareus, Aaron Williams, and Kelvin Sheppard? Does there seem to be a philosophy to the way Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey approach the draft?

- Absolutely. Last year Buffalo went with talented but raw athletes, especially with non-BCS level players in Troupe and Carrington. The Bills clearly wanted a certain type of player: tough, smart, physical guys who produced against top-level competition in college. Buffalo desperately needed some guys who could help right away to fix their league-worst run defense…and they got it.
