With the 3rd pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Buffalo Bills select....


Patrick Peterson, CB, Louisiana State University


The Buffalo Bills have a lot of holes to fill. They need a franchise QB as Ryan Fitzpatrick, though serviceable, is not the long term answer. They also need help on their offensive line, defensive line and their secondary. With Newton and Dareus off the board the Bills could reach for Blaine Gabbert or try their luck with Fairley but instead they decide to pick Patrick Peterson out of LSU. The Bills currently have Terrance McGee and Drayton Florence as their starting corners and could also lose starting safety Donte Whitner, which could lead to their secondary problems. The Bills need a game changing player on defense after only recording 11 interceptions in 2010 and Peterson offers them that. Peterson has all the tools to be a shut down corner in the NFL. He stands 6'1'' and 220 lbs, runs a 4.34 40 yard dash and has shown at the college level that he is ready to play in the NFL. Overall the Bills make a smart pick here and upgrade their secondary with a player that should be consistent pro-bowler for years to come.
