QUOTE OF THE DAY
On the process leading up to the 2013 NFL Draft:
“It has been a process. Buddy Nix, Doug Marrone and our group have been out obviously (at pro days) and all of the scouts have been out at the pro days. We have had our college visits that have come in -thirty kids. We have been out and done some private workouts as well. It has been a good process, as you hear me talk about all of the time. It is another layer of everything that you do from the college season on. We have a couple weeks before the lights go on so we are excited about it.” – Bills President and CEO Russ Brandon prior to last night’s St. John Fisher College’s award dinner at the Monroe Golf Club
