Nix defends not taking a quarterback early

  • Posted on April 24, 2010 at 10:12 am

Buddy NixOne of the expected early criticisms emerging from nights one and two of the NFL draft is the Buffalo Bills failing to draft a quarterback within the first three rounds.  If Tim Tebow, Jimmy Clausen or Colt McCoy were on the board when Buffalo picked at No. 41 at the latest, it was widely anticipated general manager Buddy Nix would grab one.

He didn’t.

Turns out that both Clausen and McCoy were available when the Bills were on the clock in the second round. They took all of 30 seconds before making their selection, defensive tackle Torell Troup.

In McCoy’s case he was passed over a second time in round three when the Bills elected to take defensive end Alex Carrington.

When asked why the team decided to pass over on Clausen, Nix was brief… and semi-defensive.

Seattle remains top landing spot for a Lynch deal

Marshawn LynchIt certainly doesn’t take an expert to tell you that Buddy Nix’s company line claims notwithstanding, the Buffalo Bills are hoping to trade Marshawn Lynch.  They were expected to try and move him before the Bills went on the clock with the ninth pick, and after C.J. Spiller was drafted to go with Fred Jackson, Lynch’s fate in Buffalo was pretty much sealed.

The problem however, is two-fold.  The Bills don’t want to give away a player who was the 12th overall pick just three years ago, but there is a lack of teams interested in acquiring the talented, but oft-troubled running back’s services.

A handful of teams that were in need of a running back coming into the draft filled their void with rookie selections.  San Diego took Ryan Matthews and Detroit nabbed Jahvid Best in the first round.  In the second round a pair of teams traded up for running backs with Houston taking Ben Tate while Cleveland snagged Montario Haresty.

Talent available for Bills going into 4th round

  • Posted on April 24, 2010 at 12:01 am

NFL DRAFT LOGODays one and two of the NFL draft is in the books and to this point the Buffalo Bills have stood pat, making their first three picks as scheduled without moving up or down the draft board.

So far the 2010 draft has netted running back C.J. Spiller, defensive tackle Terrell Troup and defensive end Alex Carrington.

While the early consensus seems to be all three prospects could contribute and perhaps even start as rookies, its borderline shocking that the team didn’t draft a left tackle or quarterback with the first three selections.
