Pick: Buffalo Bills
We all know that picking Texas OT Mike Williams was a safe call, and the fact that it also filled a major need makes it a great pick for the Bills in my book. Picking Williams (and signing free-agent Trey Teague) allows them to shift last year?s rookie surprise, Jonas Jennings, inside to guard.
