Though he was considered a first rounder beforehand, Upshaw played himself into the top 20 with his dominant performances in January’s BCS National Championship Game and his impressive week of Senior Bowl practices.
Upshaw is “scheme versatile” (Now, drink!) and fits the Bills’ new 4-3 defense well. Buffalo desperately need a pass-rushing threat, finishing with just 29 on the year in 2011, good for 29th in the league.
Adding Upshaw to a front seven that already includes his college teammate Marcell Dareus would be wise. —Peter Schrager
