Seeing Drayton Florence come through One Bills Drive for a free agent visit Thursday, you have to believe that Bills National Scout Buddy Nix had a lot of influence concerning the visit.
Being the former Director of Player Personnel for the Chargers, Florence was a former second-round pick under Nix’s watch in 2003. Being around him every day for four seasons gives Nix intimate knowledge about Florence and his abilities. That first hand knowledge is obviously a big advantage.
The interest in Florence is also an indication that the Bills are prepared for the possible departure of Jabari Greer via free agency. Adding a veteran corner with playoff experience would be valuable if Florence is determined to be the answer for Buffalo’s cornerback vacancy.
