Bills GM Buddy Nix appeared on Bills flagship station WGR Sportsradio 550 Thursday morning and expanded on his comments from Wednesday’s draft luncheon that a quality wide receiver can be found after round one in the 2012 NFL draft.
“You look at the number of wide receivers that have played great in this league and when they were drafted, Steve Johnson for example, drafted in the seventh round,” said Nix. ”Victor Cruz was undrafted. We think you can get a good sized speed receiver in the third or fourth round.”
That doesn’t necessarily mean that the Bills are ruling out a player like Notre Dame’s Michael Floyd, but it does afford the Bills flexibility in addressing their needs with the knowledge that a quality receiver could be had on day 2 of the draft.
