Looking for a pass rusher with their first pick, Buffalo went back to Penn State, where they found success drafting linebacker Paul Posluszny in the second round of the 2007 draft. This time the Bills took DE Aaron Maybin with the 11th overall pick.
“It’s a great opportunity for me,” Maybin told buffalobills.com. “And I’m going to get a chance to play with some Penn State guys that are already there in Bryan Scott and Paul Posluszny. I’m really anxious to get up there and start putting in work.”
Maybin spent one year as a starter at Penn State, where it didn’t take long for him to make an impact on the field, something the Bills are hoping he can do in his first year in the pros.
“All I can do and all I plan on doing is coming in and working as hard as possible,” said Maybin. “I’m a guy that likes to keep his mouth shut and let his game do the talking on the field. So I’m going to come in with a humble mindset, ready to work hard and ready to get a lot of work done.”
