Nix on trade talk

Bills GM Buddy Nix commented on the level of trade talk they encountered during draft weekend and by the sound of it there was a lot of chatter on the phone lines.

In an interview on the Shredd and Ragan show on 103.3 The Edge, Nix said there were more than a dozen inquiries by teams per round.

“We probably got 15 calls every round people wanting to move up or move back and offering picks,” Nix said. “I don’t say this is always the case because I don’t want to ever say never. Normally you won’t see us move back or swap picks just to be churning stuff. We kind of sit there and let what falls to us and take them and normally it’s worked out best. I’m not saying we wouldn’t ever do it. We might, but we’re not going to be big in that.”

Nix has said several times that he doesn’t like moving up and down the draft board. He likes to sit in their spots and pick, and it proved to be a sound approach this time around as the Bills from top to bottom appear to have one of their better draft classes in the past 10 years.

The Bills were one of only nine teams that did not make a single trade draft weekend.
