QUOTE OF THE DAY
KELVIN FISHER, Bills Director of College Scouting on how his background in the social work field has helped in his 14 years as an NFL scout:
“Everybody can measure the talent. What I’ve done helps you read people. It helps you know people, good and bad and I think that’s the key. Sometimes you want to know if a guy has passion for this game, and I think all those characteristics that you learned over the years it helps you define those guys that have the passion. Then you get a feel for it and you know. This is going into my 14th year so I feel have a good grasp of it now.” via BuffaloBills.com (6/10)
