    Drafting Donte Whitner with the 8th overall pick? Solid player, but looks like a reach to me. Could've traded down and still selected him. Any opinions out there?

    it might actually work out for them..in round 2 they can take Gabe Watson or McCargo while at SS Bullocks, Bing have a chance to go there but its a bigger risk

    LOTS of other guys on the board at that pick

    Once they decided that Los(t)man is a better QB than Leinart or Cutler :)rofl:) then there's no reason not to move back... looking at what Denver just did its clear they could have found a partner and picked at 15 to grab Whitner

    Unless they were fearful of another team snatching him up higher than expected then I think this is a reach.

    re

    Hey, interesting draft so far.

    I think the Bills thought all along they would have Huff at #8.
    The Raiders pulled a fast one, snubbed Leinart, and grabbed Huff.
    The Bills reached out of fear, confusion, and chaos.

    Maybe they just want to keep letting us in the playoffs every year.

    That'd be nice.

    like i said...it might be pretty smart for them to do what they are doing

    Whitner is a very good Safety..trying him in 2nd would be a risk and theres no one ask complete as him at SS..hes a better cover guy than Bing..Bullocks and few others. Gabe Watson or Rodrique Wright or McCargo will likely fall to round 2 without a big risk of losing a chance on them

    Based on consensus, it definitely seems like a reach, but if they really think there were a few teams that would have taken their guy, they might as well get him when they can.

    Still, it seems like they could have picked up a pick by moving down a few spots.
