Charles Brown not a medical fail

Posted by Chris Brown on April 23, 2010 – 10:17 pm

There were reports that USC OT Charles Brown had medical issues that caused him to slip on day two of the draft before being ultimately taken at the end of round two by the New Orleans Saints. But that wasn’t the case as far as the Bills were concerned.

“No, he did not have a medical issue for us,” said Bills VP of College Scouting Tom Modrak. “Our medical situation is pass, fail or something in between. And he was not a fail. It’s easier for me because we’ll identify guys that have problems, nicks, that kind of thing, but they don’t fail. He did not fail.”

So Brown’s slide was due to some other factor apparently.

Rams GM: “Be surprised if we stayed at 33”

Posted by Chris Brown on April 23, 2010 – 1:43 pm

In an interview on ESPN Radio Friday, St. Louis Rams GM Billy Devaney said he’d be surprised if they stayed at pick 33 before round two begins tonight at 6pm.

With reports that the Bills and Browns have been in contact with the Rams, you’ve got to believe there are other teams looking to move to the top of the board on day two as well. The Rams apparently feel with all the offers they’re getting they’ll soon be getting an offer they can’t refuse.

There’s a lot of speculation on what the Bills might be targeting, but if they do in fact get up to 33 I see Buffalo targeting a left tackle. The top three prospects left on the board at that position at this point are Rodger Saffold, Charles Brown and Bruce Campbell.

New mock has Bills getting OT

Posted by Chris Brown on April 6, 2010 – 10:24 am

It’s a new mock with a result that while all too familiar would be welcomed nonetheless as far as the Bills are concerned. posted it’s latest mock draft and has the Bills getting one of the top three offensive tackles in the class. They have Buffalo landing Oklahoma OT Trent Williams in round one. They have both Okung (Washington) and Bulaga (KC) off the board before Buffalo’s pick.

There is a concern that Seattle and Oakland could take offensive tackles too, but they both have pass rusher needs as well and MoveTheSticks has them taking S Eric Berry and DE Jason Pierre-Paul. While I can see the logic in Oakland taking an athletic freak like Pierre-Paul. I don’t know that Berry will be the play for the Seahawks.

Of course I hope that it is because that means that Buffalo gets one of the top 3. One other interesting note is MoveTheSticks has Anthony Davis dropping all the way to pick 27 to the Cowboys who need to replace Flozell Adams. They have USC’s Charles Brown going before Davis at pick 17 to San Fran, which honestly would not surprise me.
