There are reports that the Bills were “heartbroken” when Tim Tebow came off the board to Denver in the bottom of round one, but nothing could be further from the truth.
In an exclusive one-on-one interview with Buffalobills.com, Bills GM Buddy Nix stated in no uncertain terms that Tebow was “never in their plans.” Here is his direct quote.
“I love Tim Tebow,” Nix told Buffalobills.com. “We spent a lot of time with him and he’s a great kid and he’s going to do well, but he was never in our plans. We never intended to move up (into the bottom of round one) to take him. I will admit we tried to move up, but it wasn’t to take Tim, it was another player and he was gone so we didn’t.”
Speculation will be rampant as to who the Bills were trying to get in the bottom of round one. My suspicion is DT Dan Williams was the mark, who ultimately went to Arizona with pick 26.
