Welcome to the 2010 NFL draft

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The first round of the NFL draft is upon us. Reporters here at the Buffalo Bills headquarters are anxious to get rolling after so many weeks of speculation, rumors and research.

The Bills own the AFC East's earliest selection, ninth overall. ESPN draftnik Todd McShay believes that will be a critical spot within the first round and determine how the rest of the first round unfolds.

Will the Bills select Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen? Will they take an offensive tackle? Will they grab Tennessee nose tackle Dan Williams? Will they trade the pick?

A lot of possibilities for new general manager Buddy Nix's first draft.

But we're not limited to Bills coverage on the AFC East blog. Picks from all four teams will be analyzed here.
