Mel Kiper Mocks — 1.0 DT Rashan Gary 2.0 DK Metcalf

Recommended Posts

Quote

 


Here is what Kiper said about Gary:

“Could the Bills get their Kyle Williams replacement here? At his peak, the 6-foot-6, 283-pound Gary is a menace who makes offensive linemen look foolish, but you’d like to see him do it with more regularity. Gary could play end or nose guard in a 3-4 defense or tackle in a 4-3. Buffalo could look at centers or guards here; improving the interior of the offensive line should be a priority.”

I personally suggested to Brandon Beane that on draft day, he should do what he thinks is best for the team.  I can't divulge anymore details.

Very likely this could happen. DL rotation. This kid can play anywhere along to dline.

 

6’5” 280 lbs, great athletic ability. Just an underachiever. Most blame is on Michigan style defense and not knowing what to do with the kid.

 

McD is known to tap full potential. If he could get the bulb to go off, maybe this kid be special.

This pick makes sense to me.I don't think he's locked in at DT. He could play anywhere on the line for McD and I think that versatility is something our FO values.

Top 5 D and bottom on Offense but Kiper thinks D is where we should spend our 1st pick.  Dude sucks.

He personally insinuated that he was played out of position due to need. That did seem to be the case. The bigger issue this year was the injury. He’s not as polished as one would like but has all the raw talent.

BPA is likely what he was thinking, added to that a position of need

I would say it's more than likely that we go defense.  More defensive talent in the top 10 and we will be drafting BPA and not for need.

If that’s the case he needs to rethink it.  He knows we drafted Harrison Phillips last year and are trying to resign Jordan Phillips.  We must go O in the first.

You always take the best player.  Wouldn't you hate to pass on Warren Sapp because you needed a receiver more?

Can he be moved to edge rusher?  A sub 300 lb DT...seems kind of small.

Unless the draft  is deep in stud O Linemen then I;d be OK with "other" 

 

If not OLine has to be a priority

If they're going defense and it's waaaay too early, but I'd like to see a pass rusher if they remain at 9. Hughes is 30, Shaq is not a pass rusher, and so far Murphy has been too banged up.

Shaq may surprise you yet. At the start of last season I'd have agree with you but he showed genuine flashes since then

I’ve seen him going to the Bills at 9 in a few mock drafts now.  Seems kind of small for a 3 tech, but I’m guessing he could add 15-20 pounds.  I don’t love it, but I don’t know enough about Gary to hate this.

 

Any Michigan fans out there have an opinion?

Probably find out about his shoulder at the combine physicals.

 

Would be a pain to lose another 1st rounder to IR in his rookie year.

I understand that mock drafts, while fun, are largely an exercise in futility but...of all the pundits out there, has Mel Kiper ever picked the Bills 1st Rounder correctly?

Wouldnt you hate to pass on AJ green for Marcel Dareus?

 

what I’m trying to say is I agree with the sentiment but how do you know who the best player is?

As a Michigan fan I'd love to see him on the Bills. That being said, he's a bit risky because of injury and not being utilized properly. He's a freak of an athlete though. So if there was anyone to hope for a high ceiling for it would be him. Just think I'd want more of a sure thing
