McShay Mock Draft 1.0: Buffalo Bills

The 5-9 Bills won’t make the postseason, but look to have a potential franchise QB in 2013 first-round pick EJ Manuel and what appears to be a very strong 2013 class overall. Second-round pick Kiko Alonso has solidified the middle of the defense, while wide receivers Robert Woods (second round) and Marquise Goodwin (third round) have been weapons on the outside.
