QUOTE OF THE DAY
Bills GM Buddy Nix – On the draft prospects — from the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis
“There are a lot of good players that will be there in the third and fourth round, which normally is not the case.  I think there are defensive ends and guys that can do what we want. Maybe not big name guys that are going to excite a lot of people, but that’s beside the point anyway if they can play good.”
