Yesterday we knocked out a few picks in our Windy City Gridiron Member Mock Draft, and by the way, you guys are doing a fine job with the selections and writeups. Today we'll start the festivities off with Acreman20 making the choice for the Buffalo Bills.
And with the 10th pick in the WCG Mock Draft, the Buffalo Bills select...
OT, Riley Reiff, Iowa
Acreman20: Buffalo's biggest needs heading in to the off-season were defensive end, offensive tackle, and wide receiver. Signing Mario Williams and Mark Anderson solved the defensive end problem. While re-signing Stevie Johnson solves their need for a number one wide receiver, a second option for Fitzpatrick to look to in crunch time would be nice. However, with Blackmon and Floyd already off the board, I don't see another receiver worthy of the number 10 pick. Which leaves offensive tackle. Free agent LT Demetrius Bell is looking more and more unlikely to rejoin the team which leaves a glaring hole at the second most important position on offense. Insert Riley Reiff, the BPA at a position of tremendous need. A big, athletic guy, Reiff can step in immediately and help their line, whether that be starting at LT from day one or making a move from the right side to the left midway through the year. I personally don't think his 33 1/4" arms cause for much concern. The kid can play ball and he'll prove it on Sundays.
