Pro Football Network - Bills and Bucs rumored for DTs at end of round 1


Recommended Posts

“To the surprise of no one, Levi Onwuzurikeand Christian Barmore are the defensive tackles that teams tell me sit atop their position boards, though it’s a mixed bag as to who resides in the No. 1 spot. The Buccaneers and Bills are teams who have been mentioned as potential landing spots for either Onwuzurike or Barmore late in Round 1.”

As long as it’s BPA I’m good 👍

I do not think Barmore will be there at 30, he’s rumored to go top half of draft. 

May I suggest you be proactive and get a stud finder before the draft and mark a little safe spot on the wall in pencil?    Just trying to help!  🤷‍♂️   Thanks to all of you who kn

This would be stupid. Taking another 3-Tech in the 1st Round two years after Oliver? But if they are there and considered the team's BPA, what do you do? I'd hate it. Barmore wouldn't be too terrible, but Onwuzurike? Yeah, nah.

I wouldn't put much stock in these reports. Every team has their poker face on at this point. Remember the 2018 draft when the "experts" were sure the Browns would take Darnold #1. How did that work out.

Usually I’m a fan of taking the big uglies - and it’s a need especially at 1T - but I don’t like the value there.  Not even Barmore, who’s a 3T anyway.

I hope some team does reach for him early like that, but I can see him falling.

I’m all for building in the trenches personally in the draft. DL or OL . I know nothing of the kid from Washington. Barmore looked really good in the playoffs, didn’t watch him play otherwise

I can't say I have a strong opinion one way or the other, but I want to keep in mind that it's Beane who has built this team and McD who has coached this team to a AFC Championship game. That means, they know what they're doing. The team has made sustainably progressive succession toward winning and remaining a true contender in the AFC through roster construction and great coaching. 

 

In the drought and torture years, it was easy to pick apart the Bills' strategy and see all of the folly in their ways. But in the current Bills climate and culture, this team has shown a real ability to Draft, develop and recruit FAs to the team that contribute to the overall success. In this way, I trust Beane no matter the selection. Does that mean he doesn't make mistakes? Of course not, every person and GM does make mistakes. But, to presume ANY of us have more knowledge or capability to Draft impactful players at the right spot than Beane and his personnel, is absolutely insane! Beane and his team will put a great Draft together in one respect or another - just think of how much flak he got for the Diggs trade and that seemed to work out pretty well. Beane and his FO are some of the best in the league. Let's relax, enjoy the ride and trust that in the end, the Bills will be improved once the Draft is over.

I don't see a DT ... a DE or a CB, yes, but not a DT. They need to get after the QB and they need extra DBs for 4-receiver sets. An article yesterday claimed the Bills are looking at PSU's Oweh. Is anyone thinking > second coming of Aaron Maybin? Workout freak with not much production at PSU. That's a hard pass from me. Give me an edge rusher or speed receiver (Elijah Moore/Rondale Moore) at 30 and then a DB in the second round and I am all good.

I think Barmore can play either spot. From what @Bill from NYC has said there are some questions about whether he is "process" driven and you see what looks like some inconsistent effort on tape but he is a very talented boy. Onwuzurike is a 3 tech only and that is too rich for my tastes.

I do. By the Monday of draft week however a lot of folks were saying it is Baker.

Back up or starting 1 technique. And backup or starting CB 2 are most important needs. Not necessarily in that order. Obviously some think DE is a pressing issue. For me once they kept Addison this position was solidified for 2021.

We are not drafting a 3 technique

Fine but that was the #1 pick. Where the Bills are picking who knows how the board will fall. I am sure Beane has a good idea of who he wants and expects to be there at #30 but if teams go off the board then that could change things.  You know how Beane and McDermott are as they are tight lipped about everything. They always appear to be giving a detailed answer in a press conference but in reality they don't say ****.
