ESPN NFL draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. said Wednesday that the Buffalo Bills will likely pass on Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen in favor of filling the need at left tackle with Iowa's Bryan Bulaga. Kiper, however, projects the Bills will select Florida quarterback Tim Tebow in the second round.
The Bills select ninth overall in this month's draft and have a glaring need at left tackle, a position where plenty of prospects are available. As many as four could be selected in the top 10. The Bills, who ranked 30th in the league in total offense and passing, also have a need at quarterback and Clausen could be available.
"I would take Clausen, but I'm hearing through a lot of different sources that they will not take Clausen so I kind of scratched them off," said Kiper during a conference call. "I think they're going to go a different route and taking Bryan Bulaga and coming back in the second round and taking Tim Tebow."
