With the No. 10 pick in the 2012 Cincy Jungle Mock Draft, the Buffalo Bills select....

Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

In last year's draft the Buffalo Bills used seven of their nine draft picks on defensive players. In this year's free agency period they made a huge move by signing Mario Williams and also agreeing to a deal with DE Mark Anderson. Based on their recent history of moves, it appears that the Bills will be focusing on an impact player to add to the offensive side of the team.

The Bills currently have some holes to fill on the offensive line, with the biggest need being a Left Tackle to replace the presumably departed Demetrius Bell. But, as many followers of the Bills will argue, there are too many question marks with the OT prospects that rank after Matt Khalil. Also, throughout Buddy Nix's history as a GM in Buffalo, he has only selected 2 out of 11 Offensive Lineman on the roster before the fourth round.

It is my belief that Buffalo will use their first pick on a can't miss, impact WR to beef-up their passing attack. The Bills offense sputtered along during the second half of last season, and it is time for the team to finally add a big WR in Michael Floyd. He is fast, big, and strong, and he will be a great compliment to Stevie Johnson, Fred Jackson, and CJ Spiller.

Michael Floyd Highlights:

Joe Goodberry's Instant Analysis:

After free agency, Buffalo has really trimmed their needs down to a few positions. Most teams in the top 10 are clearly in desperate need of specific positions. The Bills taking Floyd gives them a big, all-around target opposite Stevie Johnson. The Bills needed to find a way to get deep and open things up underneath for their quick passing game. Floyd is a great fit and should make an impact early.
Grade: A
