I'm not going to do cuts or even minor re-signings, I will say though the Bills will cut Fitz and franchise Byrd, however I don't think they pay Levitre the kind of money he's expecting. I believe they will offer him 5 years $30 million and he's going to ask for 6 years and $45 million, so I see him hitting the open market and signing with possibly Dallas, not sure of the cap situation.
So to the Chiefs...I think Andy Reid has a hand in franchising Bowe for a 2nd straight season...I also think they will let Albert walk....I can see Alex Smith ending up here for a pair of 4th round picks, it's the same type of situation he had in SF, solid O-line and a good running game. They will need a LT if they let Albert walk and that's why at #1 they select LT Luke Jockel
The Jags I believe will be fairly quiet through out the FA process...I can see them trading MJD come draft day though and picking up a 2nd and 5th from Cincy...Knighton is a FA and Alualu has been disappointing, with Star there it makes sense, however I think the go DE despite having Babin...question is who would they take? I'm going to say they select at #2 DE Demontre Moore
Picking third is the Raiders and if there's a spot for a team to move up this could be it, the Raiders don't have a 2nd this year and would likely be willing to move pick to aquire it...my friends a big Raiders fan and it sounds like they may start Pryor next year, the Raiders could use a WR on offense but I think they focus on defense in the draft and FA...I think they add a DE in FA in someone like Wallace Gilberry and while they will likely lose Wheeler in FA I think they look at LBer as well and sign Deandre Levy...as for the draft they will try and trade down but with no one looking to move up at #3 they take BPA and select DT Star Lotuleli
The Eagles won't do much in FA as they have almost everything Chip needs to run his offense, I see them cutting Vick and Nnamdi, freeing up some money...They will see what intrest there is on Foles and I believe they end up trading Foles and bringing in Dennis Dixon...I also see them at #4 selecting QB Geno Smith
The Lions don't a lot of needs, however they do have some FA's that could be leaving including DE Cliff Avril and LB Deandre Levy...I believe they will try and bring back Avril, however I think he still wants to test the market and may realize the Lions probably won't use the franchice tag on him again...if he leaves and with Vandenbosch declining and possibly retiring I believe at #5 the Lions select DE Bjorn Werener
The Browns are moving to a 3-4 and while they have some pieces to make the move they would have likely been better off staying in a 4-3 for now at least...I think Alex Smith would be a nice pickup for the Browns as he has had success with Turner, however I have Smith landing in KC...I do see the Browns going after another QB though to compete with Weeden and Matt Flynn could be that guy...they need a #1 WR but to me this is to early and the Browns moving to the 3-4 means at #6 they select DE/OLB Barkevious Mingo
The Cardinals need an O-lineman and I believe they make a hard push to land a T and G through FA....I see them falling landing the best T on the market in Albert and a solid G in Donald Thomas....There line is so bad I could see them taking another lineman here, however I believe they cut Kolb and start fresh at QB and at #7 they select QB Matt Barkley
Now for the Bills. I haven't heard anything on their intentions yet, just what everyone else has heard. Like I said before I believe the Bills may lose Levitre to FA and if they do Rinehart will take his place, that does leave a bit of a hole in case one of the interior lineman go down. Therefore I believe the Bills will add someone that can play G and C, so I think Rob Turner would be a good pickup...they will try for the big WRs and won't be able to land one as the money will be to much for there liking, however they do sign a WR with good upside in Ramses Barden....I have believed the Bills will sign a LBer in FA just because a LBer is cheaper to sign than a CB or S. I still believe they sign a LBer it just won't be a big time LBer and will sign Erin Henderson....The Bills will make one more signing in FA and the best thing for a young QB to have is weapons and a TE in perticular. When the Bills realize they won't sign a top flight WR they will turn there attention to a TE and take Dustin Keller away from the Jets...
At pick 8 the Bills could go several different ways, I've heard many like Ogletree, I personally think he will fall a bit, to the mid twenties...Jarvis Jones is available and many fans would love that, I also see him falling out of the top ten due to injury concerns...Patterson the WR would be an okay pick, I think he's a lot like Stephen Hill last year, in that he's got the size and speed but is just to raw...Eric Fisher wouldn't be horrible as he could play RT but I think the Bills use Hairston and are happy with it, Vaccaro would be my surprise pick but I think Williams gets moved to S...therefore it leaves us with the QB position, which is where I believe the Bills go..everyone has there favorites for this position...I don't really have one but I think the QB that will rise the most (along with Barkley) is Tyler Wilson
In RD two the Bills take a WR and much like the Colts did a year ago the Bills give there QB his college teammate in Cobi Hamilton...not my favorite WR but I believe his size and his familiarity with Wilson will be the reason for him being the pick.
RD 3 the Bills take someone that I tphave watched since he first came into college and I personally believe is a late 1st RD talent in CB Blidi Wreh Wilson...I am a little surprised to see him rated so low on many mock experts boards and the closer we get to the draft the more we'll hear about GMs liking him in the early 2nd, but for now he's still rated a third rounder by many
RD 4 the Bills add to there LB core by adding ILB Jon Bostic...He's a solid option to challenge Sheppard for playing time. I believe Bradham will start come next season and I have the Bills signing Henderson to start as well, that means Barnett (if retained) Sheppard and Bostic will all challenge for the 3rd LBer
RD 5 the Bills add another LBer in Gerald Hodges...another solid addition to the LBer core that over time could be turned into a starter and would provide solid depth throughout the year
RD 6 the Bills finally pull the plug in Lindell...the guys can't hit the end zone from the 35 yd line, and while I believ if given the chance he can hit 50 yd FG's but I'm not sure the new coaches will trust him enough..that's why the Bills add K Dustin Hopkins
I also think the Bills add a P as an udfa in Ryan Allen (if he doesn't get drafted)
