Buffalo’s college scouting department has a lot of duties this time of year. Putting together the initial draft board, collecting background info on all the juniors that have declared and setting up the interview list for the NFL Combine.
Bills VP of College Scouting Tom Modrak and his staff were finalizing their player interview list for the NFL Combine which gets started on Feb. 23rd. NFL clubs have to submit an interview list to the league so they can coordinate the timing of all the interviews among the 32 clubs. Naturally we were not made privvy to the players names on that list, but Modrak did offer the following on the interview process.
“Right now we’re setting up interviews for the Combine and we’re doing a lot of juniors in those interviews,” said Modrak. “We’ll go back into the schools and visit with them there too. We make sure there will be ways that we get what we need from all of them in the allotted amount of time prior to the draft.”
Hearing that juniors will represent a big portion of their 60 15-minute interviews at the Combine is anything but surprising. Buffalo had an extended period of time to talk to over 100 senior prospects at the Senior Bowl in late January with Chan Gailey and his staff coaching the South team all week in Mobile.
