It has been a crazy past few weeks around the NFL, and it is hard to find a single story to pinpoint to sum it up.  When there is a new record for highest paid defenseman signing with a basement team, and that is not even third biggest story of the offseason, you know things have reached a fever pitch.  Tebow, Manning, BountyGate, whomever the Dolphins are not getting to play QB, and Mario Williams have dominated both the headlines and the water cooler talk, and we are still a month away from the draft.

Picking up Mario Williams and now former Patriot’s sack leader Mark Anderson will undoubtedly improve the front 7, and makes the pick for the Bills in the draft all the more interesting since the consensus top-2 Defensive Ends in the draft no longer make sense for Buffalo.  UNC’s Quinton Coples and S. Carolina’s Melvin Ingram are likely to go 1-2 in some order, probably in the top 12-15 picks. Buffalo was almost a guaranteed destination for one of them, but now that #10 pick is wide open.  Below are some names and positions that may be available and make sense.  One thing that Buffalo has done a fine job of is drafting minimal drama type of guys.  Yes, I know we have Stevie Johnson, but I think of him more as fun loving than cancerous, even when His Majesty Terrell Owens was here, he was mild as a kitten.  I have Left Tackle, Cornerback, and Wide Receiver as my positions of biggest need for the Bills, (you can talk me out of that order) and now that the tenth pick can be used on one of any number of upgrades.  At the end I will offer my own recommendation for that pick…
