Private workout for Tenn. QB & WR

Posted by Chris Brown on April 6, 2013 – 5:04 pm

The Bills conducted private workouts with some University of Tennessee prospects Saturday.

QB Tyler Bray was the headline prospect as the Bills tirelessly cover all bases with the quarterback prospects.

They also worked out other Tennessee prospects WRs Justin Hunter and Zach Rogers and TE Michael Rivera.

Rivera broke Jason Witten’s single-season receiving yardage record for a tight end this past year with 562 receiving yards. Witten’s had 493 as a Vol.

What’s interesting is WR Cordarrelle Patterson was not part of the private workout.

Of the group that was worked out Hunter is considered the highest ranked prospect as most draft prognosticators have him as a second round pick.

Report: Bills to work out Tyler Bray

Posted by Chris Brown on March 28, 2013 – 1:43 pm

Bills GM Buddy Nix has said they intended to see all of the top quarterbacks in the 2013 NFL draft pool. Tennessee junior eligible Tyler Bray is apparently in that pool.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Bills will hold a private workout with Bray late next week.

Buffalo has already had private workouts with three other quarterback prospects in Geno Smith, E.J. Manuel and Landry Jones.
