Are the Bills just Clowney around?

As we are only hours away from the oh-so exciting NFL Draft, anticipation surrounds the Buffalo Bills and their front office. Who will they draft at #9? Will the even stay at #9? Will the move up to #1? What would it take to acquire the first overall pick?

Several reports have already said that the Bills are working the phone lines in an attempt to get to the top of the draft. To move from the ninth spot up to the first would be extremely pricey. ESPN.com suggested in a mock draft it would cost the Bills the 9th overall pick and their 2nd round pick this year, 1st and 3rd round picks next year, and a 2016 3rd rounder. Whether that price is too steep remains to be seen, but you can be sure the Bills will have to pay in order to get to #1. 

So let's say the Bills pay this so-called 'price' to get to the top of the draft. Who would they select? Well that parts easy. This guy:

Jadeveon Clowney. A defensive end from South Carolina who has been the consensus overall since the beginning of the season. He stands 6'5'' and weighs 266lbs. He is a freak of nature who has great speed and jump off the edge.

Imagine a defensive line of Clowney, Marcell Dareus, Kyle Williams, and Mario Williams. Pair that with Kiko Alonso and Jerry Hughes. That could easily be one of the best pass rushes in the NFL (on paper of course).

Drafting a player of Clowney's abilities would be franchise altering. Whether they are willing to pay the price is yet to be seen. We will find out soon enough.

Some food for thought: The last time the Bills drafted first overall they picked a speedy, powerful, athletic, defensive end. Anyone remember this guy?
