Former NFL scout has Bills taking Trent Williams

Posted on April 6, 2010 by Patrick Moran

I have steadfastly declined to do a mock draft (I may do one before April 22) to this point and if you haven’t noticed, I haven’t published or reported on the mocks of other writers and sites for the past several weeks.  The primary reason is frankly, I don’t think mocks should be trusted and set up fans with false hopes.

In my opinion they provide little more than ammunition for debate during the league’s down time, so I tend to stray from revealing most of them.

But in the case of Daniel Jeremiah I’m making an exception.  Unlike a super-fan, media personality or alleged draft expert, Jeremiah has a leg to stand on when he makes projections.  He’s a former NFL scout who has worked for Cleveland and Baltimore, so he has a much better grasp in how teams are thinking, not to mention a boatload of contacts to gage players on.

In his latest mock for his “Moving the Chains” website, he has the Buffalo Bills selecting Oklahoma left tackle Trent Williams with the ninth pick.

“One of the big risers in the draft lands where he is desperately needed.” Jeremiah writes.

Interestingly, Jeremiah doesn’t have quarterback Jimmy Clausen going anywhere in the first round.  If he’s even remotely close, that makes Clausen sound like quite the reach if the Bills are really considering him that early.

He also doesn’t have offensive tackles Anthony Davis or Bruce Campbell going in the first round.  Sergio Kindle is an outside linebacker most have going in the top half of the first round, but he’s nowhere to be found in this 32-player mock either.

It’s worth the read.  Click here.

    delusional. maybe not with the bills pick, but there is no way that clausen drops all the way out of the 1st round

    Teams are over wasting their high picks on if-come QBs. They can be had in the later rounds for far less money. Clausen may be a decent pro, but history holds that it is unlikely he will be a star. 4 words: Rick Mirer Brady Quinn.
