Bills pick Terrell Troup in the second round

Posted on April 23, 2010 by Patrick Moran

With the No. 41 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have selected Central Florida nose tackle Torrell Troup.

Buffalo made the pick with both Jimmy Clausen and Colt McCoy on the board as available quarterbacks, as well as offensive tackle Charles Brown.

Terrence Cody, a defensive tackle most analysts had rated ahead of Troop, was also left on the board.

As my colleague over at Buffalo Rumblings Brian Galliford states,  “ Troup is high on intangibles and brutally strong, Troup isn’t overly athletic and won’t provide the team much on passing downs, but he fills the need for a two-gap lane-plugger in the Bills’ new 3-4 defensive alignment.”

My problem with the pick is that the Bills continue to treat left tackle like it’s just one of 22 positions on the football field.  Demetrius Bell not only struggled when he was on the field, he also demonstrated an inability to stay healthy.

We’ll have to see how it plays out, but Brown, Bruce Campbell or Vladimir Ducasse would’ve been more sensible picks as far as I’m concerned.

I’ll say this about Buddy Nix; he definitely is keeping us guessing.

We’ll be back to update the Bills next pick, which is slotted to be the 72nd pick (in round three)
