Just wanted to make everyone aware that our much anticipated Inside the Bills Draft room special is now available at the media center of Buffalobills.com. Here’s a small snippet of what Bills GM Buddy Nix revealed to us regarding trade talk and their top pick at 10th overall.
There were a couple of teams in frequent contact with the Bills and it wasn’t to have the Bills move down, but rather up higher in the top 10.
“They were both in the top 10,” said Nix. ”They both made calls before the draft and then made them before their pick. Same two to move to the same spots. Again we usually let it come to us and that’s what we did again.”
When I asked if the price to move up was too steep Nix said it wasn’t.
“It wasn’t a high price,” he said. ”It was very reasonable. We could’ve moved easily, but I look at the guy we got and the pick they wanted for us to move up and it wouldn’t have been worth it.”
Check out what else Nix and head coach Chan Gailey had to say about how each of the team’s first three picks came down.
