Bills GM Buddy Nix appeared on Bills flagship station WGR Sportsradio 550 in Buffalo Monday to recap the draft. He also provided some insight on the new 10 undrafted rookies that have agreed to terms.

Nix, who was asked specifically about Richmond QB Aaron Corp, believes Corp can compete.

“He’s got all the tools,” said Nix. “Our scouts that went in there liked him. Darrell Moody and Tom Roth went in there and they liked him. So he’s got a chance. We’ll give him an opportunity.”

As for the other there was an offensive lineman and punter that stood out in the group.

“We liked a lot of these guys and one of them, (offensive line coach) Joe D’Alessandris liked (Paul) Madsen from Colorado State,” said Nix. ‘We had good grades on him. The punter from Florida State Powell we’ll give him a chance. He led the nation in 47 yards a kick in punting so he’s got a chance to compete. These safeties, we could add one, so they’ll have a chance. All these guys may have some holes in them, but they also have qualities that make positives for them to be here.”

Nix also said there will be upwards of 20 tryout players for Buffalo’s rookie minicamp, which begins Friday May 11th, so they’ve got enough players to have practice.
