Bills Take Two More Front Seven Guys
The Bills had holes in the front seven and filled them in a big way with picking front seven players with their first three picks in the draft. They added Ohio State defensive linemen Adolphus Washington in the third round with the 80th overall pick in the draft. They took him even though his college teammate Braxton Miller was there and Michigan St. QB Connor Cook was still on the board. The passing on QBs in the first two days has to be a vote of confidence for Tyrod Taylor. Washington his expected to compete for a job right away and fills the third major hole along the front seven as 1st round pick Shaq Lawson and 2nd rounder Reggie Ragland filled the other holes. Urban Meyer referred to Washington as a defensive end in a defensive tackle's body. He is considered a solid pass rusher who needs work against the run. He did not play in Ohio State's bowl game this past year because of an arrest. He called it a mistake that he has learned from. The Bills took Alabama ILB Reggie Ragland with the 41st pick in the draft. They made a trade with the Bears to move up from the 18th pick in the 2nd round to the 10th pick to fill the 2nd hole in the front seven in this draft. The move cost them the first of the two 4th round picks which was the 117th overall pick and next year's 4th round which was a steep price to pay according to the draft value chart but they got the man they really wanted. He's a versatile player who they think can play the Wil in the Bills 3-4 next to Preston Brown and will be penciled in as a day one starter. He works off his blocks well and is a solid tackler and very active on the field. May only project to a two down player but they can afford to get that in a 2nd round pick. Doug Whaley said Reggie Ragland was so high on their board they would have taken him at 19 as he was 2nd on the board at that spot behind Lawson. Many thought he was a true Mike but they think he can play the Wil while Brown stays at the Mike. The Bills officially released A.J. Tarpley who announced he is retiring earlier this month. They have also released TE Jacob Maxwell who was on their practice squad at the end of last season. He was then signed to a futures contract before being released. More...
