Marker Bills Draft Complete [7:09 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'In the sixth round the Bills went back to the offensive line and selected guard/center Justin Geisinger from Vanderbilt. At 6'3" and 325 lbs., he says he can play all three positions on the offensive line. He had a sprained MCL in his senior year but says he has fully recovered. The Bills are looking to move him to guard.'

Marker Henry Remains A Bill [7:08 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Donahoe said he was not even offered a third round pick. Donahoe said, "If we could have, we would've been interested in that, but that was not in anybody's conversation." "I don't think it is what we've wanted, I think we've been pretty consistent from the start, we just want something that's fair and we really haven't been offered very much. That's frustrating and a little bit puzzling to us. It's amazing to me that you have backs like Edgerrin James, Shaun Alexander and Travis Henry and nobody is really trying to be very aggressive to get any of those players and I don't know why, I don't have the answer."'

Marker Bills add speed, size, but can't deal Henry [6:12 PM]
AP reports: 'The most significant addition came when the team took hefty Illinois center Raymond Preston with their fourth-round pick, 122nd overall. Listed at 6-foot-5 and 311 pounds, Preston allowed only one sack in three years as a college starter. He was the fourth center selected in this year's draft and has the opportunity to make an immediate impact on a line that lost three players most notably starting left tackle Jonas Jennings to free agency last month. ''He's not a developmental guy,'' Bills scout Doug Majeski said. ''This is a guy that we've liked for a long time.'''

Marker Stamer featured on Buffalo Bills Web site [6:07 PM]

Marker Bills draft Vanderbilt guard Geisinger [5:57 PM]

Marker Lawrence native Preston watching NFL Draft with great interest [5:53 PM]
Lawrence Eagle Tribune reports: 'Several scouting reports say Preston is a hard worker who is noted for his smarts. On the downside, scouts question his mobility. One report had him going in the seventh round.'

Marker Henry saga ends with Arrington pick [4:22 PM]
East Valley Tribune reports: '"We kept our communication with Buffalo open until the time of the pick," vice president of football operations Rod Graves said. "But we also felt it wasnít going to work and we had an opportunity to get a player like J.J. Arrington and to be honest with you, we feel very, very good about that."'

Marker NFL is front and center for ex-Sundevil Preston [3:53 PM]
North County Times reports: 'Preston may turn out to be more than a center at the NFL level. He said Philadelphia told him they like him as a guard, and that Atlanta and Kansas City have expressed interest in him as a tackle. He also impressed NFL talent evaluators as a long snapper during the East-West Shrine Game. That was stunning because he didn't handle those duties at Illinois.'

Marker Buffalo adding Miami flavor [3:42 PM]
AP reports: '''He was telling me how it's a good football city, how the fans love Buffalo and how he adapted to the weather quick,'' Parrish said. ''I'm willing to adapt to the weather quick.'''

Marker DeLamielleure, Biron shape up for Billittier run [9:49 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'DeLamielleure, 54, is no stranger to running, having done it in high school. "I ran track in high school - the 100 dash - and threw the shot," he said. "I played fullback in high school. I'm only jealous of long distance runners when they buy clothes. Running is one of the best things you can do for yourself. I've always admired runners and swimmers. Those sports require such discipline, and you have to do it yourself and not rely on a team."'

Marker Hurricane tracking leads Bills to picks [9:29 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'They selected smurf-like speed receiver Roscoe Parrish of Miami with their second-round pick and then took receiving tight end Kevin Everett, another Miami Hurricane, in the third round. Both players will have a chance to contribute immediately as rookie targets for new quarterback J.P. Losman.'

Marker McGahee helps Parrish catch wind of pick [9:28 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"In this world we live in you need playmakers, and that's what he is," said Bills Assistant General Manager Tom Modrak. "He's a strong kid for 170 pounds. He's small, but he plays strong and plays very tough. He's a competitive kid."'

Marker Bills not counting on sudden impact [9:27 AM]

Marker It's tough to find fun during draft's long, long wait [9:26 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'After four excruciating hours and one romp through the buffet line, the media was desperate for a legitimate bit of news. Please, trade Travis Henry. Trade him for a backup long snapper, a blocking sled or a fax machine, but make a move. Give us something to analyze.'

Marker Bills draft TJ ex Kevin Everett in third round [6:30 AM]
Port Arthur News reports: '"They told me they wanted a tight end who can block and catch the ball. I can do that," he said. "It's a great opportunity and I'm very excited about it. I don't know much about them, other than they are going with a young quarterback named J.P. Losman."'

Marker Henry stays put; Bills pick Miami receiver Parrish [5:12 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Donahoe said the Bills worked the phones all day but were not presented with much to consider for Henry and will try again today, probably to land a future pick. They would've taken a third-rounder for the former Pro Bowler but nobody offered it.'

Marker A long, long day, so let's speed it up [5:11 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'But taking Parrish wasn't the biggest surprise of this endless day. More stunning was the inactivity of Donahoe and assistant GM Modrak. The Bills' wheelers and dealers weren't able to make any bold moves to get into the first round. They stayed put at 55th. The waiting game tested their patience, too. "It did take a while," Modrak said. "I've never been in that situation before."'

Marker Draft moves along with glacier-like quickness [5:10 AM]
Niagara Gazette reports: 'Remember, it was only three years ago that the Bills were singing the praises of wide receiver Josh Reed, who was selected in the first round. Now Reedís job could be in jeopardy with the selection of Parrish.'

Marker Well worth the wait for Canes [5:07 AM]
Miami Herald reports: '''I didn't know who I was going to, but I felt good about the Bills,'' said Parrish, who celebrated with a throng of family members and friends in his living room. ``I talked to their receiver coach on the phone for about 30 minutes on Friday and he talked to me about coming in and playing the slot receiver and returning kicks for them. I'm ready right now.'''

Marker AFC East draft selections [5:06 AM]

AP reports: '''We've been very aggressive trying to see if we could find something that made sense,'' Bills president Tom Donahoe said. ''But we weren't really presented with anything that did make sense. We weren't presented with very much to be honest with you. ... We'll see what happens tomorrow.'' Donahoe said he would've been willing to trade Henry for a third-round pick.'

April 23, 2005

WGR-AM reports: 'Parrish has the quick burst and isn't afraid to go over the middle and has shown the ability to hang onto the ball after taking the big hit. Has great speed and shows a second gear when tracking the ball downfield. Parrish does lack size, being only 5'9", and 168 pounds.'
