2010 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft: Pick No. 9

Rd. # Player Pos. College
1 9 C.J. Spiller
General Manager: CLF

With the ninth pick of the 2010 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft, the Buffalo Bills select Clemson running back C.J. Spiller.

Here is CLF's reasoning for the pick:

The Buffalo Bills need talent.... EVERYWHERE. The 'reset button' has been pushed and the rebuilding process has started. After thorough analysis by our scouts, Clausen just isn't making the grade. Davis is tempting, but with a double check of the big board in Buffalo there are only 2 players left with the value and talent that will serve as a building block for this franchise: C.J. Spiller and Earl Thomas. There is NO question the Bills' defense would improve with Thomas, but the value/talent lies with the RB position, making Spiller, the #1-ranked RB, the pick.

Buffalo's 30th-ranked offense lacked explosive, big-play ability. Add that to the possibility of having a rookie QB in camp, this pick only makes sense. C.J. Spiller will compliment Freddie Jackson well and will provide Buffalo with the newest 2-headed monster that will attract defensive coordinators' attention to allow for a young/new QB to make a better transition in Buffalo.
