The Buffalo Bills brought in LB Karlos Dansby days before the draft.  What will this mean for the Bills and their draft day board if they are able to sign Dansby to a contract?

For one it will provide the Buffalo Bills with another veteran LB to add to their staff and one that has shown production in his 10 seasons in the league.  He lead the Dolphins last year with 134 tackles, a very productive season for him.  Dansby is a quicker LB and would fit right in with the Buffalo Bills defensive mix.  Bringing in Manny Lawson earlier in the free agent period and already have Bradham, Sheppard, Moats, and White at LB this move would almost provide enough depth for the Bills to look to fill other needs within the draft with their first 3 picks, mainly looking at QB, WR, and OG.

I personally like Dansby and this he would fit into the defensive system.  If Pettine is going to run a similar defensive structure that he did in JETSLAND, which is more than likely, then I think Dansby with Lawson and Sheppard as your starting three would be a decent and could be extremely productive beginning of the back 7.

Dansby is able to play in a 3-4 system as this is what he had in Miami for the last three seasons.  He is an experienced play with a physical force behind his playing.  Even at 31 he can still hold his own.
