1) RB Marshawn Lynch California 5-11½, 215, 4.46 - Lynch has a good combination of power and speed. He is a very tough inside runner and has enough to speed to get around the corner. He has above average hands and is a good receiver out of the backfield. Does not have burner speed to go to the distance. Not very shifty to make people miss but he can carry them once they hit him. Lynch can be everything Willis McGahee wasn't, able to get extra yards when a hole doesn't exist and be a weapon in the passing game. He will start opening day but will only get about 20 carries a game.
2) LB Paul Posluszny Penn St. 6-1, 238, 4.63 - Posluszny was a steal in the 2nd round, the Bills had him rated in their top three prospects. He has good height and but could use to add a bit more size to his frame. Does know how to back pedal into coverage if he is playing the middle but needs to hone his skills in pass coverage. He plays with great toughness and intensity. Very hard worker and intelligent. He has played both inside and outside for Penn St. He will most likely play the middle linebacker position for the Bills and expect him in the lineup on opening day.
3) QB Trent Edwards Stanford 6-4, 231, 4.76 - Edwards has good size and is strong with good arm strength. Has good zip on the ball but doesn't throw an accurate deep ball. Has solid mechanics and a quick release. Willing to take a hit and throws well on the run. Still a project however as he needs to mature and cut down on mistakes. Needs work on his footwork, reading coverages, and hot reads. Durability is an issue with him. Will probably end up being the third string quarterback this year and may eventually be the number two guy.
4) RB Dwayne Wright Fresno St. 5-11½, 228, 4.66 - Wright is a big back who is shifty, he changes directions well for a big man. He is a versatile back who is good catching passes out of the backfield. Has the size and strength to be an excellent blocker. Another player who has durability issues, he missed two years with a bad knee injury but returned well in 2006. He doesn't have breakaway speed. Last year the Bills got safeties in the first and fourth rounds. This year it is running backs in both those rounds. Wright will end up being the "thunder" to Lynch's "lighting". Look for him to be the third running back on gamedays but used as on the goal line and in short yardage situations.
6) S John Wendling Wyoming 6-1¼, 222, 4.48 - Wendling has a great combination of size and speed for a safety. His speed allows him to make time up when he falls behind and he has solid closing speed. He is a leader that has been very durable in his college career. He lacks ideal athletic ability and isn't great when having to change directions. He needs to improve his tackling and work on fundamentals. A project player who can play either safety position but probably better suited for strong safety so he can play in the box. Will backup at both safety positions but will likely see the field on special teams where he was a demon in college.
7) TE Derek Schouman Boise St. 6-2¼, 247, 4.74 - He is an athletic player who can run solid routes in the short to intermediate range. Knows how to locate the seams in a defense as he reads them well. Solid blocker who has sound footwork. Very balanced player who works hard. He is undersized however which limits his straight line blocking ability. Not enough speed to get deep downfield. Can play the H-back role, he saw some time in the backfield in college. He will have to battle hard to make the team in a very crowded tight end situation. Since they aren't carrying any fullbacks they may carry four tight ends and is chances increase because he can play the H-back role.
7) DE C.J. Ah You Oklahoma 6-3¾, 274, 4.7 - Has good size and plays tough. He does a good job shedding blocks quickly and shows some speed around the edge. Can be a playmaker rushing the passer. Has a problem with leverage and doesn't have enough lower body strength. Not a consistent player and has some issues they kept holding him back. He will be 25 this season. Ah You will have a tough time just making the team because of depth at the position. May find his way on to the practice squad.
