We held a mock draft for NFL beat writers today, and the Bills wound up with Alabama defensive end Marcell Dareus at No. 3. Quarterback Cam Newton went No. 1 to Carolina. Outside linebacker Von Miller went No. 2 to Denver, which goes a little against the grain of what most mock drafts are showing for the Broncos. It's easy to see either player fitting into the scheme of new Denver coach John Fox, who will switch the team from the 3-4 to the 4-3 scheme.
From this perspective, the Bills would have no problem taking the 319-pound Dareus at No. 3. He would make everybody on the Buffalo front seven better. The top 10 picks in this mock draft: 1. Carolina (Cam Newton, QB). 2. Denver (Von Miller, DE/OLB). 3. Buffalo (Marcell Dareus, DE). 4. Cincinnati (A.J. Green, WR). 5. Arizona (Patrick Peterson, CB). 6. Cleveland (Julio Jones, WR). 7. San Francisco (Blaine Gabbert, QB). 8. Tennessee (Nick Fairley, DT). 9. Dallas (Tyron Smith, OT). 10. Washington (Robert Quinn, DE/OLB).
