Let's have some draft analysis, shall we? I'll start by making one thing clear. Due to the Sabres playoff run I have never been less prepared going into a draft. I normally have a minimum of three draft guides in my work-bag and bathroom stand (where most of the got read) and I know every player available. How obscure? When Buffalo picked Xavier Omon a few years ago out of Northwest Missouri State, I actually knew who he was and that one of his strengths was his up-hill running ability. I'm not kidding. Draft day has been a holiday of mine since college. I use to load up on beers and park myself in front of the TV for the entire thing. That actually lead to me blacked out and with a concussion after the 2003 draft, but that is a story for another day.
This year I wasn't totally lost, but nowhere near as prepared as usually. I knew the basics. Who the top few prospects, who the best available QB's were, and most importantly that there were no top-rated athletic RB's that Chan and Buddy would reach for. So please forgive me for my lack of accurate analysis here today. I still need to take a crack at it.
So when Buffalo selected Aaron Williams yesterday I got excited for thee reasons. 1. He was projected to go as high as mid-1st round and depending on who you talked to he was a top-3 DB. 2. Everything I read about him says how well-rounded he is and how complete his game is. I can't remember the last time Buffalo drafted a guy that scouts labeled with no glaring weaknesses. Oh wait, we did in the first round. 3. This may be the final F-U to Donte Whitner. Williams can also play free safety and could be a great fit to takeover that role for the Bills. Please Lord let that happen and my next jersey purchase is Aaron Williams. Sing it with me to Donte everyone....Fuck You! OOO-OO-OO!! I'm mature.
What I do know is the Bills chose players the DGWU crew have been calling for them to do for years. DEFENSE DEFENSE DEFENSE! Yes, we need a QB, TE, and the offensive line still needs plenty of work, but every facet of the D needs it too. I for one look forward to seeing Mr. Dareus, Williams, and Sheppard in action soon. Enjoy the draft today folks and check back later today or Sunday for some more updates. GO BILLS!
