  • Just read that the Bills are trying to trade up/with the Bengals to grab Andre Smith. Ugh. The one guy I want to avoid and the Bills are trying to trade up to get him. Mike Williams V2.

        Buffalo may be targeting Alabama offensive tackle Andre Smith as its replacement for Jason Peters. After trading Peters to Philadelphia, the focus has shifted. Scout.com has learned that the Bills may be looking to trade up for Smith. The scoop inside...

        In lieu of losing Jason Peters, the Buffalo Bills may be trying trade up in the draft to secure a left tackle.

        A league source told Scout.com's Adam Caplan that the Bills are trying to trade up – past the Cincinnati Bengals at No. 6 overall – to land Alabama tackle Andre Smith. Both Buffalo and Cincinnati are in need of a starting tackle and the Bengals are considered a hot landing spot for Smith.

        The need for a left tackle was created last weekend when Buffalo finally dealt the unhappy Peters to the Philadelphia Eagles for the 28th overall pick, a fourth round selection and a sixth round pick next year. The team lacks any viable immediate replacements right now. Only Langston Walker, Kirk Chambers and Demetrius Bell are the top tackles in the mix.

        Peters wanted to be paid as the richest tackle in the league last off-season, a demand Buffalo refused to meet. He skipped the team's entire training camp, drawing $560,000 in fines. During the season, Peters was inconsistent. He made his second straight Pro Bowl but allowed more sacks than any other starting left tackle in the NFL (11.5).

        Still, it's a big hole to fill. Peters remained one of the best young talents in the league. It appears the Bills are aggressively seeking to fill his void with their first pick in the draft. No player has had a rockier last couple months than Smith. He ducked out of the NFL Combine and was underwhelming at his pro day. In the bench press, he only had 19 reps of 225 pounds. His 40 time hovered in 5.3 range.

        Click here for the video of Smith’s pro day.

        Still, on talent-alone Smith could be the biggest hit at tackle in this year’s draft class. Before his miserable series of events, Smith was projected as a possible No. 1 overall pick. He is a masher with a massive base. Though his character has been questioned, Smith's talent ceiling is extremely high. He is deceptively agile for a man of his size.

        The Bills still have pressing needs at tight end and defensive end but positions are rich enough to address in the second or third rounds if need be. For now, the Bills may be on the warpath for Andre Smith.

        Stay tuned for more updates on this development...

          oh, okay.

          I really feel this thing is a smokescreen. I'm expecting (hoping) that the Bills are keeping everything top-secret right now.

          • Well if we do trade up for Smith I'd expect our o-line to look something like this:

            Smith - D. Bell - Hangartner - Butler - Walker

            Probably draft a guard late in the draft/sign a UDFA. Also, I'd expect us to trade one of Parrish/Simpson/Kelsay if we trade up for Smith since we would obviously have to give up some picks to trade up.

            • I love how Kelsay and Simpson are "on the block", as if there is some sort of market for them.

                • Great, we are back to using the draft to replace players either traded away or lost in FA. The draft is supposed to be used to improve your weaknesses not fill the holes you created on your own. We are back to the same old Bills who actually matched Detroit for a decade in loses until Detroit got really bad.
                  And proud of it!!!

                  • Wow, Maybin with Orakpo still on the board. Sorry to be late to the discussion, but I'm really kind of discontent with this

                    • 4 Future Starters on Day 1.

                      Eric Wood and Andy LeVitre are two tough customers and I'm going to love seeing them mixing it up in the interior.

                      Aaron Maybin and Jairus Byrd have loads of potential.

                      Byrd is probably going to start on Day 1 at FS. 17 INTs in 3 Years is incredible on any level.

                      Maybin is going to be a situational pass-rusher for atleast a year but he should make an impact while developing his body.

                      OLB, TE, DT, DE are still needs.

                      • I've been reading a lot that the Bills don't think they're done with FA.

                        John Henderson might be available through trade

                        The Bills might be leveraging Kelsay and Parrish into another mid-round pick.

                        LeRoy Hill is a FA after being de-tagged by the Seahawks.

                        We saved money with the Peters trade, I'd make a run at Hill.

                        • How do you guys feel about giving up your 3rd and 4th to get Levitre?

                          I'm pissed that the Boys traded back, but would've been upset if we used the pick on Levitre. Gosselin predicted the Boys to take Levitre at 51.

                          • I'm cool with it. We still own PHI's 4th Rd pick and we might be able to get back into the 3rd Rd by dangling Roscoe Parrish.

                              Ah. Having that extra 4th helps.

                              • Maybin was the one guy I absolutely did not want.
