I would not mind Barron
I would not mind Barron
I think it's between Barron and Kuechly, unless Kalil miraculously falls.
Buddy wants an impact player, and those are probably the two best in the draft.
Given how much we use our Nickel Package, and how effective George Wilson has been as an In the Box safety in the past (combined with our use of Brian Scott as a hybrid LB in the past), I think the Bills could view Barron as a player they could use all over the place.
As the NFL becomes more and more pass heavy, I think the future of the NFL is to have an awesome Nickel Package that can both defend the run and the pass, by having a physical 5th DB who can play up around the LOS and function in a hybrid LB/SS/Nickel Corner.
That's how Green Bay has essentially used Charles Woodson the past few years, as they use their Nickel Package the vast majority of the time they're on D.
With Barron in the mix, and us lacking a true SLB, I can see us lining up a ton in:
------------------ Byrd -------------------------- Barron
------------------------- Barnett ----- Sheppard -------- Wilson
Florence -------- Anderson - Dareus - Williams - Williams -------- Williams
I think that could be defending both the run and the pass....

The reason its not Barron IMO is because the Bills dont let stuff like this leak.
he could be the next Donte Whitner!!!
Anyone could be the Bills pick. He's just seeing what sticks to the wall so afterward he can say
"I thought they would pick him"
At the end of the day, the Pawn and the King go in the same box
good player. no need.
steve johnson is our future star
Fred jackson is my adopted player this year!!
Barron, Gilmore, Kuechly
Not necessarily in that order but those are the three guys being talked about the most as being the pick, Kirkpatrick is someone else being talked about but he's likely the last of the four options. Unless they either trade down or a top player drops to them I believe one of those three will be in Buffalo.
I've been to the top, there's not a lot of oxygen there, so I'm fine where I'm at.
barron would be a solid pick !
"THE DYNAMIC DUO "
I just don't see the need for drafting a safety that high really, especially w/ Wilson & Byrd on the roster today.
hoping Dallas really covets either guy, probably Barran and the Bills could get another 2nd day pick from them
"If ever a man had it all, it would have to be me"
"believe half of what you see and none of what you hear
Im guessing someone @ OBD floated this rumor out there to get Dallas or NE to move up...No way do we value S or CB at this point...
Only a RB, would bother me more, then picking a Saftey @10.
If we add Baron to the mix, that would allow us to keep 3 high quality safeties on the field which would allow us to defend the run better than if we have to use 3 corners.
With Barron, either he or George Wilson could function as our Nickel Back/Strong Side Linebacker, and knowing that they're both strong run defenders, that would allow us to solidify our run D when we have to bring a 5th DB on the field to defend 3-wide sets that we see.
No CB only WR at 10
