OT more important than WR

Bills GM Buddy Nix doesn’t pull many punches when asked questions about personnel and the way to build a roster. Appearing on the FAN590 Wednesday morning in Toronto, Nix was asked if he would rank offensive tackle or wide receiver as a more critical position to fill in general.

Here’s what he said.

“I think the left tackle is vital,” said Nix. “I don’t care how good your receivers are if you’re on your back you can’t throw it to him. You’ve got to protect your quarterback first I think.”

Nix also said that as he sees it about half the teams in the NFL need offensive tackle help. That’s why even if Matt Kalil slips past the Vikings at 3, the chances are still very slim that the USC OT is still on the board for Buffalo at 10.
