He’s got the ability to play all over the Bills D-line early and offers them a lot of 3-4 and 4-3 versatility. As far as where Brockers is expected to come off the board this pick is in the right range for Brockers’ talent level. And he does offer 4-3, 3-4 defensive scheme versatility as Bunting says. I just think Buffalo has to go pure pass rusher with this pick and USC’s Nick Perry, who Bunting has going 12th to the Seahawks, might be the better fit in terms of the value he’s placed on both prospects....
