      Here's the list im sure we're running with for #46
      Paea
      Rahim Moore
      Daniel Thomas
      Mikel Leshoure
      Da'Quan Bowers (Scared, but a possibility)
      Marvin Austin
      Quinton Carter

        If Miller was a traditional 4-3 LB, then the positional value would be dubious (a la Aaron Curry). But he's not. If we use him heavily as a pass rusher/blitzer in a hybrid 4-3/3-3-5, the positional value is just fine.

        In terms of talent, he's right at the top of the pile with Peterson.

        Look for muscle inside on defense. We've got lots of edge rush. Now we need a big bull or two to push the pocket back and stop the run.

        I don't think TE will happen tomorrow - Rudolph will probably end up in St Louis and I think our 3rd rounder will probably go to addressing some other offensive position (OG, RB).

        The RB situation is very interesting - there's lots of depth and the teams in the first half of the second look like they have other fish to fry (QB, DT, WR, CB). Looks like there's going to be some very nice value to be had from the late 2nd - 4th.

        Look for a trade back from 36. The team wants another pick or two in the 3rd - 5th range.

        • Seeing Von and Elvis on 3rd downs is going to be entertaining. Hard to get upset with this pick.

          I wonder if we grab Bowers tomorrow too.

            I have to believe there is something *seriously* wrong with his knee to free fall out of round 1. If the doctor says "his knee's shot", is drafting him at any point a wise idea?

            • Chiefs fan here, I'm glad you guys didn't get Dareus, however I'm dreading the thought that Denver may come away with Miller and Bowers in the first 2 rounds. If Bowers can recover from his knee deal, and if Dumerville can recover you guys will have a sick pass rush.

              • Hey Packers fan here. All of you moaning. Would you rather have Von Miller and Marvin Austin (two blue chip players) or Dareus and a rubbish OLB??

                Now your gonna have two future probowlers. You cant complain.

                      Fair enough. It will certainly be interesting to see how this plays out. Two DT's in the next 3 picks would certainly win over the masses... but I'd really like to see a potential MLB creep in here as well.

                          irrelevant of my feelings on this year's draft, i have no idea why he's still employed.
                          A great friend of mine is a Broncos fan, and his thinking is along your lines. He also thought with McDaniels gone things would get better draft wise. I hope you guys end up with some combination of Paea and Austin/Ballard/Casey or even McClain in the second round. That way Williams and Miller have some protection in front of them. I do think that with the depth at DT (especially 4-3 types) it wasnt horrible to pass on Dareus, but I liked his fit in the 4-3 better than Millers. As we learned last year (and the year before) pass rushers are useless when the opposing team runs the ball down your throat.
                          We have Modrak here who I feel the same way about, not sure how he has made it through the last decade with a job.
                          Regardless, this is the first time in almost 2 decades the Bills took the guy I thought was best for them, and wanted myself. I hope Xander and Co. do it right in the second round for you all.

                            3-tech run stoppers can be found elsewhere in the draft. This kind of elite explosiveness Miller brings to the table cannot.

                            I'm anticipating the 3-3-5 and 46 experience Dennis Allen brings will be integrated into the new defensive scheme. Miller will get plenty of opportunity to attack (while still having a credible all-around game).

                            • i'm really hoping that we pass on bowers. his knee issue is obviously very serious, and we'd be neglecting to take an inside player.

                              that being said, marvin austin may be the one guy that i want the least. the dude is the second coming of marcus thomas, and i have a gut feeling that we're going to take him. *knock on wood*
