It’s not likely to be buzzing with activity, but the Bills draft room will be fully staffed and operational Thursday night, even though the Bills do not have a first round draft pick.
GM Doug Whaley says Buffalo’s draft room will not have the usual urgency, without a first rounder in play, but the Bills will be following the first round closely.
“We are approaching it the same way,” Whaley said in an appearance on The John Murphy Show. “We want to see how the board falls, who picks what. We have friends throughout the league and we want to see who’s going to gain an advantage for their team. And it also sets the tone for us-let’s see who will possibly be there for us at fifty.”
The Bills first pick in the draft is scheduled to be the 50th overall pick, in the second round Friday night.
Whaley was asked if he anticipates a run on any position groups during tonight’s first round.
“Probably offensive tackle,” he said. “That’s usually a position where when one goes, the other ones start going. And then in subsequent rounds, usually when one running back goes, the other ones start falling in line behind them.”
