Bills Daily 2002 Mock Draft

For the third year in a row, Bills Daily tries to predict who the Bills will draft. Bills Daily correspondent Bob Wensley gives this impossible task a shot once again. If you want to do more research check our draft links.

The Bills are scheduled to pick 4th in the first round of the NFL Draft that will take place this weekend in New York City. Tom Donahoe always has a tendency to trade down. For our mock draft, we are assuming the Bills will make the pick in the first round and all other rounds. Of course, as we wrote in our preview we wouldn't be surprised if they traded the second round pick for Drew Bledsoe. The Bills were given four compensatory picks, giving them 11 picks for the entire draft but they may add a couple of more picks through trades to help fill holes in the depth chart. Please e-mail us with your comments on Bob's projections.
1-4 (#4 overall)   DT Ryan Sims - North Carolina Will start immediately next to Pat Williams.
