Report: Bills GM watches Okung

Among those in attendance at the Oklahoma State pro day where top flight OT Russell Okung performed was none other than Bills GM Buddy Nix.

That according to the Associated Press. Nix reportedly spoke briefly with Okung at the conclusion of his workout, which included a vertical leap of 32 1/2 inches and a broad jump of 8’9″.

Nix said he was the kind of personnel man that believed in getting out on the road and “smelling the breath” of NFL prospects instead of just watching tape, and he’s obviously doing that.

Okung suffered a minor groin injury at the combine and could not finish his workout, so he made sure to do so at the Oklahoma State pro day.

“I think I’m a person that’s willing to accept the pressure that’s going to be put on me,” Okung said. “That’s become kind of natural. You’ve got a big old target on your back so you definitely have to welcome all the pressure.”

Another underrated prospect that again performed well was Cowboys QB Zac Robinson. He’s considered a mid-round prospect.
