Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Bills' picks: Round 2/51 -- Andy Levitre, G/T, 6-2, 306, Oregon State...The Bills liked Levitre so much they shipped their third- and fourth-round picks to Dallas to move up 24 spots and back into the second round to draft the All-Pac-10 tackle. Levitre projects as an NFL guard and Buffalo needs tackles, where Levitre -- who started 39 games at tackle in college -- is hampered by his height and short arms. He allowed 10.5 sacks in 863 pass plays at Oregon State. Has weak upper body and not a "masher" so he's got work to do in the weight room. On the plus side, he's a smart player, one of just 25 draft-eligible players to earn his college degree in finance and sociology. - by The Sports Xchange
