Many National Football League Draft experts had the Buffalo Bills taking outside linebacker Von Miller third overall Thursday.
As it turns Bills fans can forget about the team taking an outside linebacker all together.
Two things Bills general manager Buddy Nix stated in a press conference after they picked defensive tackle Marcell Dareus that reaffirmed to me that they don’t view outside linebacker as a position of need were that they don’t have that many positions of need as people may think and that if Darues wasn’t there they would have considered quarterback heavily there.
So, what does that mean for their second round pick?
What it means is that their will most likely be two positions in play. Them being quarterback with Andy Dalton Colin Kapernick and Ryan Mallet on the board and inside linebacker since no inside linebacker has been taken at all so far.
In the end, if the Bills do go defense again you have to like their chances at being one of the best in National Football League for years to come with assistant head coach and inside linebackers coach Dave Wannstedt in charge.
