2013 NFL Mock Draft (3 Rounds): Buffalo Bills Mock Draft
Three months away from the 2013 NFL Draft, all but two teams have shifted their focus to the offseason and draft.
Many sites including ours will attempt to project how the draft will play out and Kevin Hanson has updated his three-round mock draft this weekend. As we get closer to the draft, the plan is to project all seven rounds.
Some of you are fans of the NFL draft and take a big-picture view while others only really care how things will shake out for your particular team. Either way, we got you covered as we will start publishing 32 team posts to go along with our full mock draft for you to be able to follow it whatever way you deem appropriate.
In Hanson's updated 2013 mock draft, here are the Buffalo Bills picks:
Pick 8. Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
Ryan Fitzpatrick is tied with a league-worst 39 interceptions over the past two seasons. Since The Amish Rifle has been paid all of his guaranteed money, the Bills can cut him before he's due a bonus of $3 million in March although he'll count $10.45 million toward next year's salary cap, according to Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News.
Smith is considered to be this year's top quarterback prospect and NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah has recently compared Smith to another Smith that was taken No. 1 overall a few years back: Alex.
Hearing that comparison, however, probably does not inspire the Bills faithful in Orchard Park.
Through the first five games of the season, Smith played the quarterback position as well as it could possibly be played. Leading the Mountaineers to a 5-0 start, Smith threw for just shy of 400 yards per game, 24 touchdowns and no interceptions.
Since then, however, the Mountaineers lost five of their final eight games although they won their last two before losing to Syracuse in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl (full bowl results). During that span, Smith threw 18 touchdowns and six interceptions.
Pick 42. Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor
The Bills could use another weapon in the passing game opposite Stevie Johnson. Williams finished the season with 97 receptions for 1,832 yards, which was the most in the nation, plus 12 touchdowns.
Pick 73. Justin Pugh, OT, Syracuse
The Bills make another pick to boost their offense as Pugh and his collegiate coach Doug Marrone are reunited. Along there are some concerns that his arm length may force him inside, Pugh is an excellent value at this spot that could go quite a bit earlier in the draft.
