The Bills are hoping for a second round pick, which appears high for the legally troubled RB who only rushed for 450 yards last season.

Lynch had previously topped 1,000 yards his other two seasons in the league. He is known for his hard-nosed style with a quick burst after penetrating the first level of defenders.

He is one year into a three year probation sentence after a pleading guilty to an L.A. gun charge. The Misdemeanor charge earned him a three game suspension last season. He was also involved in a hit-and-run in 2008.

If Lynch can overcome his off-field issues, he has plenty of upside at 23-years-old.
