Bills targeting offensive tackle at No. 9?

When you’ve produced just one winning season in the past ten years, it’s safe to say you may be a team with several problems that need to be addressed.

Averaging just 6.6 wins per season since 2000, the Buffalo Bills are a team that has a lot of problems.

As the hype surrounding the 2010 NFL draft continues to build, our own Michael Lombardi is hearing that the Bills are looking to draft an offensive tackle with their first pick in Thursday’s draft.

Selecting a reliable offensive tackle would be a step in the right direction for a team that gave up 46 sacks in 2009 (fourth in NFL) and traded their top offensive lineman—Jason Peters—to the Philadelphia Eagles last offseason.

Buffalo currently holds the ninth overall pick in the first round, which would likely eliminate offensive tackles Russell Okung (Oklahoma State) and Bryan Bulaga (Iowa) from their possibilities.

However, the team could have a shot at Oklahoma’s Trent Williams, USC’s Charles Brown, Rutgers’ Anthony Davis or Maryland’s Bruce Campbell.

In addition to targeting an offensive tackle, Lombardi is hearing that the Bills are still interested in acquiring Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, who may be available at the end of the first round, should Buffalo want to trade back in on Day 1 of the draft.
