Details of the pick after the jump...

()

From GM Rep56:  With the addition of T.O., the Bills have great targets outside, and having a great TE would add a key piece to this offense. Pettigrew (6-5; 257) is widely regarded as this year's top rookie pass catching TE prospect. Although he can not stretch the field vertically, he provides an outstanding outlet receiver. Pettigrew is also an excellent blocker, which will help out the running game.

The Bills are in great need for a defensive end that can bring some heat on the QB, but with Brown and Orakpo off the board, Jackson (more of a run stopper than a dangerous pass rusher) and Maybin (undersized, most likely a OLB in a 3-4) are not great fits for Buffalo's defensive scheme, landing a talent like Pettigrew is hard to pass up

*****

Commish's Thoughts:  I love this pick.  Why target a WR or Olineman with this pick when you can get the best of both worlds?  It would be difficult for Buffalo to prioritize a deep threat when the QB isn't consistently getting the protection he needs, so this becomes that vital stepping stone which at once buys time for the QB, and creates playmaking options when the pocket gets solidified.  Pettigrew may be considered a reach, being taken just on the outside of the top ten, but every year the top TE in the class goes "a little early".  Bah humbug.  If he can block, and if he can catch, draft him wherever you want to.

ON THE CLOCK

Denver Broncos are up next.  The pick you have all been waiting for.  Moreno, Maualuga, Malcolm, Cushing and more all wait with bated breath to see if their name gets written down by the orange and blue.  Many will be called, but only ONE will be chosen!  Stay tuned!

The deadline for this pick is Midnight MST, March 27th.  As long as I receive the pick by that time it will be valid.  To send me the pick, just email me at the address shown in my profile.
