Who won the draft?
New England
New York

I think Buffalo had the best draft, followed by New England, then Miami and the Jets had the worst. Parcells worked some magic with the trade for Brandon Marshall, so this needs to be considered, they really only lost a 2nd round pick and a 2011 pick at that. New York didn't have many picks and New England failed to address RB, I feel like they need to work on a more balanced attack. Buffalo on the other hand upgraded their RB, WR, OT, NT, OLB and DE positions with solid players across the board. Buddy Nix is truly a BPA kind of GM and I'm grateful that we have him, although I think we should have drafted Anthony Davis & Jimmy Clausen, nevertheless I agree with the Spiller/Troup selections.

Have some balls, hindsight makes things too easy.

How was Troup BPA? That was a blatantly need based selection. Also, unless we get some value for Marshawn I think Spiller was too much of a luxury pick, especially considering I don't think he was the BPA there at 9 (although a case could be made).

I like all 4 teams drafts.

The Bills may have taken Troup a bit high (3rd round would have been better) but that's up for debate - for at least 2 years to give the kid some development time. lol

NE did well but Cunningham (or Crable . . . yikes) needs to be an impact guy in the pass rush or our draft looks very bad. It all hinges on the pass rush, as Spikes and McCourtey should prove to be very shrewd picks and immediate contributors.

The Jets showed the same aggressiveness I admired last year. 3, 4, 5 very good picks is better than a dozen picks that turn into a roster cut festival anyway. All 4 guys looked like great value to me and fill the very few holes the team had left. Impressive. But they take second.

Miami wins. Their draft was excellent, landing the top 5tech, a high motor kid like Misi and then add Jerry and AJ Edds in 3 & 4. I like the players they brought in even without the Marshall trade. I just can't see voting for anyone else when the Phins draft reads: Brandon Marshall, Jared Odrick, Koa Misi, John Jerry, AJ Edds and a solid safety way late in Rashad Jones.

I agree with flyingelvis Miami did its thing in the darft. Odrick was one of my favorite players in the draft and i really wanted the Jets to draft him. Jets are second because kyle wilson was great value at 29 and Mcknight is going to be the steal of the fourth round. Imo I would have been upset if I was a bills fan. Didnt like the spiller pick cause I thought your ground game was already good.
