Buffalo’s coaching staff has been busy handling their draft class assignments in conjunction with the College Scouting department. Now with players reporting on Monday, their focus shifts to the classroom as they begin installing their schemes with any changes they might have made this offseason.
“We’re getting ready to go to phase one of the offseason program,” said head coach Rex Ryan. “We just finished some of our draft responsibilities with Doug Whaley and had our position coaches talk to the scouts and things like that with the assignments that Doug has given the coaches. Now it’s getting ready to get into the football part of it.”
Ryan explained that at this point the offseason conditioning program only involves weight training and conditioning work, no football on the field.
“What you have is a couple of hours of meeting time, but you don’t get on the field or go through walk throughs,” he said. “They’re doing a lot of nodding of their head, but you don’t know if they’ve got it. But you go back to square one and start installing those things. There’s conditioning and getting our guys up to speed in our weight room. The football aspect is really about teaching your things over again. It’s a good thing for coaches.”
The players can report for the voluntary program on Monday.
