Why no tight end picked

A lot of Bills fans saw tight end as a need position for Buffalo in this year’s draft, but a tight end wasn’t taken with any of the nine picks. Bills head coach Chan Gailey explained why.

“We talked several times about a tight end and it didn’t work out that when our pick came that the guys were sitting there that we had ended up talking about,” said Gailey. “We weren’t going to try to force a round peg in square hole. We took the best player up there that fit some kind of need for us.”

Bills GM Buddy Nix has said they do like what they believe they have in Scott Chandler, who was picked up in the middle of the season last year and is a former fourth-round pick of the Chargers when Nix was running the personnel department in San Diego.

Buffalo only used two of their nine draft choices on offensive players.
