Final board tweaks begin

Posted by Chris Brown on April 12, 2010 – 12:17 pm

The Bills draft board will be getting its final adjustments beginning this week.

Buffalo’s GM Buddy Nix and Vice President of College Scouting Tom Modrak opened the final draft board meetings Monday. Head coach Chan Gailey, his staff and the Bills scouting department will be hard at work with Nix and Modrak the next week and a half tidying up their draft board.

At this point no dramatic adjustments occur, unless some prospect is injured between now and the draft or gets arrested. Scouts are doing their due diligence on prospects to make sure that’s not the case, and final calls are made on board positioning for players.

According to Nix however, there’s not much that’s altered on player grades this late in the game.

“You hear a lot of talk about a guy moving up and down after the season and it’s really comical because unless he gets hurt he shouldn’t move much up or down because he’s not playing,” said Nix. “The only way you should move is by how you play the game. That’s 85-90 percent of what we go on.”
