2012 NFL Mock Draft: The Buffalo Bills Draft

There are many 2012 NFL Mock Draft sites online already.  I think that they were putting them up early and often.  What is the buzz around 1 Bills Drive?  What will the Bills do with the 11th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft?  It is hard to guess, so I thought I would take a look at some possible draft picks.

There are some fans that will argue that the Bills need to add a pass rush threat to their defense.  Looking at the fact that they allowed 400 yards a game, a pass rusher might just be what the Bills need.  There is one guy that comes to mind when pass rush is mentioned. Brandon Jenkins of FSU.  He is underrated and should easily drop to 11th in the first round.  This would make him available for the Bills to pick up.  He could start immediately at OLB and provide the threat that they need.    Does the name Cornelius Bennett or Darryl Talley come to mind?

Thinking that the Bills are not going to pay the $7.5 million that Stevie Johnson is asking for, they might be looking at Michael Floyd wide receiver out of Notre Dame.  Even if they resign Stevie this could be a perfect complement and he would fit right into the Bills plans. A big receiver at 6'3" and 220 pounds.  He has good hands and is a pretty good route runner.  The Bills need a big receiving threat.

If the Bills decide to add depth to the offensive line which despite all the injuries are tied for 1st for sacks allowed.  They might choose to pick Reilly Reiff OT Iowa.  He could help protect Fitzpatrick and maybe even open up a few holes for whoever is running the ball next season.  Remember even though Fred Jackson looked great, CJ Spiller is really starting to show the NFL why the Buffalo Bills drafted him.  Still sticking with Freddy on this one though.  No man should lose his job to injury.  Even so, they could use both and be set at running back.

There you have it.  Three possible draft picks for the 2012 NFL Draft.  Its time to put all the Dick Juaron draft picks to bed and start anew.  Remember that it was just a couple years ago the Bills fired everyone and started fresh.  Lets give Chan Gailey at least one more year before we call for his head.  But, George Edwards its time to cut ties with this man.   Time to sit back and wait for the 2012 NFL Draft to see who the Buffalo Bills will pick up.
