Mel Kiper audits AFC East

The final installment of Mel Kiper's "Summer Audits" series on ESPN Insider shines a spotlight on the AFC East.

As you would expect, Kiper looks at every team through a draft prism. He considers a notable infusion of talent at a featured area, lingering questions and a player in the 2011 draft who would most help a team right now.

Since the article is for Insider subscribers, The Hague prevents me from sharing all of Kiper's insights, but I'll reveal his "Next April's pick, now" selections for each team.

Buffalo Bills: Georgia tackle Clint Boling.

Miami Dolphins: West Virginia running back Noel Devine.

New England Patriots: Kansas State running back Daniel Thomas.

New York Jets: Mississippi defensive tackle Jerrell Powell.
