THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
April 26, 1983 — BILLS HAVE TWO NO. 1 PICKS IN 1983 DRAFT
Buffalo’s first No. 1 choice in the 1983 NFL Draft was TE Tony Hunter from Notre Dame (12th overall pick). With Buffalo’s second first round pick, they selected QB Jim Kelly from the University of Miami. In the second round, Buffalo took West Virginia LB Darryl Talley.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey
On if the need for an offensive tackle is reduced knowing QB Ryan Fitzpatrick gets the ball out in about in a couple of seconds:
“You always want to improve,” Gailey told Chris Brown of Buffalobills.com. “If you get better linemen you can hold the ball a little bit longer. Your run game gets better. If anything we could use some depth there. We don’t know if we’ve got a guy that can play for 10 years or not. We might already. The question is: are you trying to upgrade your football team at critical positions? Tackle is a critical position in the game of football today.”
