Inside The Bills

Tight ends talked with Buffalo

Posted by Chris Brown on February 26, 2010 – 4:56 pm

Oklahoma TE Jermaine Gresham and Florida TE Aaron Hernandez just finished speaking with the media here at the NFL Combine and both confirmed that they have spoken with the Bills here in Indianapolis.

Gresham and Hernandez are considered among the top tight ends in the draft class. The reason NFL teams are usually interested in interviewing players is if they need a better gauge of their football IQ. Playing in spread attacks, Gresham and Hernandez didn’t have to run a lot of complex routes.

So NFL coaches will want to put them on the board and have them diagram things. Having not played at all last year, the interest in Gresham would be to see if he’s still sharp with football concepts.

Nevertheless with two of the top tight ends talking to Buffalo is interesting. Gresham is unlikely to be available in round two, but Hernandez could be there when the Bills pick 41st.
