The 41st pick is in and SB Nation's Bills community, Buffalo Rumblings, has selected...
South Carolina OLB Eric Norwood
Norwood was a team captain and a leader, is a tremendous competitor, and fits perfectly into the 3-4 scheme. His workout numbers won't blow you away, but Norwood is the type of guy that gets it done on the field in clutch situations time and again, and that's really all that matters to Nix. This pick is the best blend of need, value, talent, production and intangibles, and knowing that, passing on Price is a bit easier.
Have fun with the Bills/Norwood jokes, by the way. Get creative!
I stand by him being a solid pick, though. This is a little early for Norwood, but he's experienced as a linebacker and defensive end. Clearly he's too small for even a 4-3 end, but his pass rush skills are good. He's only slightly a level below Jerry Hughes, who was taken 12 picks ago.
I like Buffalo Rumblings reasoning for selecting Norwood. The Bills do need pass rush help especially when the Bills nose tackles aren't exactly ideal. Given everything available, I think this was a solid choice. Brian Price may not fit the scheme and the Bills are hoping not to force a square peg into a round hole.
