What Bills will do at 41

The Bills have the 41st pick, and here's how it looks for that pick entering the second round.

There still are three highly rated offensive tackles available -- Indiana's Rodger Saffold, Southern Cal's Charles Brown and Maryland's Bruce Campbell. Cambell is a one-year wonder, who didn't even make all-conference this year and didn't even get a single vote for all conference. But he worked out like a champion in the post-season. He doesn't seem like a Buddy Nix kind of pick. Two teams in the first eight of the second round have a glaring OT need - Kansas City at 36 and Oakland at 39. Campbell seems like a perfect fit for Oakland.

Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen still is on the board. Three teams ahead of the Bills look like Clausen possibilities - Minnesota at 34, Cleveland at 38 and Oakland at 39. The guess here is if the Bills want Clausen, the will need to move way up to get him.

There's a great chance a big nose tackle is available. Three big ones left are Alabama's Terrence Cody, East Carolina's Linval Joseph and North Carolina's Cam Thomas. One team ahead of the Bills has a glaring nose tackle need - Miami at 40. But the Dolphins also have needs at pass rusher and safety.

The top players on the board also include: Texas OLB Sergio Kindle, USC safety Taylor Mays, Arizona TE Rob Gronkowski and UCLA DT Brian Price.

Who should the Bills take?
