Bills' decision to load up on DBs curious - AFC East - ESPN Ignoring the focus of the article, which is ESPN complaining about Buffalo not chasing after a LT, this seems to highlight Buffalo getting themselves ready to face...New England. Buffalo drafted: 1a. Aaron Maybin - speed pass rush specialist. 1b. Eric Wood - OL, they needed to improve their run blocking, and running the ball keeps Brady, Moss, and Welker on the bench. Wood also has at least RT potential. 2a. Jairus Byrd - ballhawking DB, slow for an NFL CB, but okay for a FS, 17 career interceptions and 5'10" 207 he'll hold up against the run just fine. 2b. Andy Levitre - OL, LT projected to OG, same as Wood. 4. Shawn Nelson - TE, not known as a blocker, he showed he was willing enough by manhandling Maualuga at the Senior Bowl, good receiver, but don't discount his blocking on Linebackers...like NE's foursome in a 3-4 scheme. 5. Nic Harris - LB, a slow college S who also played LB and CB, he's good in coverage and his change of direction numbers are competitive with the other Safeties in this draft class, he's a good fit at OLB for Buffalo. 6. Cary Harris - CB, another slow college CB, but a reliable tackler and a physical CB. 7. Ellis Lankster - CB, a late bloomer who is reported to be strong against the run with good ball skills. Improve the run game with smart, tough, nasty OL and a willing receiving TE capable of getting out on LBs and making space. Improve the pass defense with an edge rush and increased competition amongst the DBs, and throw in a coverage LB to help. Buffalo isn't happy with the #13 pass defense noted in the article and they weren't happy with their O-line play from last year - neither are what you want if you're playing NE twice a year.
