Courtney Upshaw is not yet officially a member of the Buffalo Bills, however this is only a projected lineup. The Bills finished 28th in the league in sacks last year, and any Bills fan would tell you that their main weakness is rushing the passer. Recently interviewed, Bills GM Buddy Nix, stated that they are going to address their pass rushing needs in the first round of the draft. My favorite OLB prospect in the upcoming draft is Courtney Upshaw, and hopefully the Bills agree by making him the 10th overall selection in the 1st round of the 2012 Draft.

In 2011, his junior season with the Crimson Tide, he recorded 22.5 tackles for a loss, 10 sacks, and 9 forced fumbles, on one of the best defenses in college football. His smashmouth style of football, and his non-stop motor makes him a perfect match for a Bills defense in need of some toughness. Some analysts are calling Upshaw "the next Terrell Suggs" - and if Merriman can stay healthy, no opposing quarterback will enjoy looking into the eyes of Shawne and Courtney on Sunday afternooon.
