With the tenth pick of 2012 Interactive Mock Draft, the Buffalo Bills select…

10. Buffalo Bills Logo Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

While we are firm believers in the school of thought that says you need elite players at QB, LT, DE, and CB.  We feel equally firmly that we have all those pieces with the exception of cornerback.

After all we paid huge money to Ryan Fitzpatrick who has $24 million in guaranteed money coming, and made a big splash to get Mario Williams in free agency.  Most mocks had us taking a left tackle, but after Ryan Kalil we feel no one warranted a high first round pick as they are only above average pass blockers.

Having to choose between Floyd and Janoris Jenkins, an exceptional cover man, was a difficult decision.  However, our entire offense is predicated on our ability to “spread” the field vertically in the passing game.  You cannot do that with one starting caliber wide receiver under contract.

In this case we get a player who we had graded higher than Justin Blackmon.  Is a far superior athlete, as his combine results will attest to, and his production backs it up, posting back to back 1,000 yard seasons of 12 and 9 touchdowns.  He is a big and physical pass catcher that can create mismatches against smaller DB’s, and will provide another weapon opposite Stevie Johnson for Fitzpatrick to utilize.

In the end we feel we have added another weapon to add to what we have with an already stacked backfield.  We should have no problems putting points on the board in 2012.

    I really Like Floyd here they gave Fitz and Stevie a contract so they need to do something to give the offense more weapons and a big threat like Floyd is on par with that. The Bills got into trouble when Fitz had to force the ball upfield and with Stevie seeing doubles Floyd could be in line for a big rookie year. I can see Floyd as the ROY will Buff depending how RGIII does in Washington of course. If Floyd hadt been picked in my mind Buff goes will Gilmore while he might be slated for the later par of the round I see him as the 2nd best CB in the draft (maybe even the best) and he fits a need for Buffalo. Another option might have be Rief but I do think you made the right pick.

    Well done.
