Inside The Bills

Meredith a good young pickup

Jamon Meredith was a good value pick for the Packers this past spring in the fifth round.

I interviewed Meredith at the NFL Combine back in February to ask him about his position switch. He had played two years at left and right tackle, but then his senior year moved inside to guard.

He admitted it was a bit of an adjustment for him, but felt he got better as the season went along. But he’s got long arms so playing tackle I think is something he’s capable of. Some experts had him tabbed as a third-round pick.

We know the Bills like players that are versatile and though Meredith makes them even younger, I think he’s a good acquisition. Smart and tough, I’ve talked to a couple of scouts about him before and after the draft.

Most think he could be a successful right tackle at this level, but some aren’t sure about left tackle in the NFL. But with his guard capabilities he’s a valuable reserve player. If he blossoms he could be much more than that.

I saw Brad Butler today leave the facility on crutches. Tough to see him like that, but he’s keeping a positive attitude. The right mindset always helps so I wished him luck with his forthcoming surgery and rehab.
