Marker Transcript: Bills Select OT Dylan McFarland [4:58 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'He's a good athlete. He's got size and size potential. He's a very bright kid. We think he has a chance to be a two position guy in time. It takes a while for guys. We're looking at him as someone who could do one or the other, tackle or guard, because of his ability.'

Marker Transcript: WR/RB Jonathan Smith [4:57 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'On being a "slash" player:
I have the abilities to do different things. I'm always up for trying new things, anything to help out the team.'

Marker Losman Q&A: Ready to learn [9:07 PM]
NFL.com reports: Are you looking forward to working behind Drew Bledsoe? Yeah, of course. I was kind of prepared with Green Bay talk and sitting behind (Brett) Favre, and now here I am. You never know how the draft is going to work out. Luckily enough, I am able to be in another situation like this with another great quarterback who's been in the league so many years.

Marker Mularkey Q&A: Bills go for offense [7:20 PM]
NFL.com reports: 'What do you see in J.P. Losman that made him worth moving up for?
Mobile, strong arm, competitive, leader.'

Marker Four Aces - Teams invest heavily in future QBs [7:16 PM]
NFL.com reports: But that wasn't the most dramatic of the 10 trades made in the first round. That distinction belonged to the deal the Buffalo Bills made to get the Dallas Cowboys' 22nd overall pick, which the Bills then used for QB J.P. Losman. The Bills gave the Cowboys their second-round choice this year (RB Julius Jones ) and first- and fifth-rounders in '05.

Marker Bills complete draft [7:09 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'On Day Two, the Bills used their 4th round selection on tight end Tim Euhus out of Oregon State. Euhus, 6'5", 260 pounds, was three-year starter at Oregon State who has good hands, but lacks pure speed, as he ran a 4.89 in the 40-yard dash. He is known for being an intelligent player, but will need to improve his blocking techniques to succeed at the next level. Euhus also earned letter status playing basketball at Oregon State.'

Marker Win Some, Lose Some [7:07 PM]
SI.com reports: 'Some folks have panned the top of the Bills' draft for taking Wisconsin receiver Lee Evans too high at No. 13, and for giving up next year's No. 1 to Dallas in order to get back into the opening round and select Tulane quarterback J.P. Losman at No. 22. But not me.'

Marker Transcript: Sam Wyche on J.P. Losman [7:03 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'J.P. is a guy that we ranked right there in the bulk of guys including the top three people. I wouldn't say we said he was the best in the draft but he was right there with them. Some times when you put them in lists like that, they are not equidistant from each other. They are very tight in terms of our feelings towards him and the other picks. He was a guy that we said going into the draft, if we end up with him we have a good player. The thinking was from Mike Mularkey that if we don't draft one this year we're going to have to go get one next year. We can't go on and on restocking here. Why this year rather than wait until next year and have a raw rookie that has another year to wait before he's ready to go before he's ready to go to play. We'll give him that playing time, spend that next year's draft now and get the advantage of the playing time between now and next year. He's not coming in to take the opener. He's got a very comfortable transition period here.'

Marker Bills continue focusing on offense in Day 2 of draft [7:02 PM]
AP reports: 'Of Buffalo's six selections during the two-day draft, five were offensive players. It was a trend the team established on Saturday in an attempt to bolster an offense that finished 30th in the NFL last year, and was blamed for Buffalo's disappointing 6-10 finish.'

Marker Seventh Round: Dylan McFarland [6:28 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'The last three seasons he has been one of the key ingredients to Montana’s offensive success and has helped the Griz to be ranked among the national leaders in several offensive categories.'

Marker Seventh Round: Jonathan Smith [5:40 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'Versatile big-play performer who was Tech’s main offensive weapon in his senior year…In addition to regular duties as a wide receiver and punt returner, Jonathan also lined up at halfback and quarterback during his career.'

Marker Transcript: Bills Select TE Tim Euhus [4:52 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'He's a good athlete. In his freshman year at Oregon State he was on the basketball team. He's a tall athletic tight end. He's a good receiver. Big, strong hands. He has good speed for his size. He's a tenacious blocker. He's a tough scrapper and a hard nose player.'

Marker Transcript: TE Tim Euhus [4:52 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'It was good news for me. I figured that with all the other tight ends that had been taken, my number would come up pretty quick, and it was a little quicker than I thought. Quick news is good news.'

Marker First Round: Jonathan Losman [4:51 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'Can slide and elude the pass rush and has the ability to throw on the move…Does a very good job with his timing on the mid-range throws, as the receiver rarely has to work back to the ball…Has the field vision and awareness to look off his primary target to find his second and third options…Competitive player who can handle hard coaching.'

Marker Bills Trade Up, Snag Tulane's Losman [4:51 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '"When we first did our board we had four quarterbacks that we thought had first round talents," Bills President and GM Tom Donahoe said. "As soon as we made our (first) pick we began to explore the possibility of trying to get back into the first round to pick J. P. We called just about every team from our pick on and proposed a trade to them. Finally, we were able to get it done with Dallas."'

Marker Bills go for two in first round [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"This guy's a leader," Donahoe said. "We think he's got a heck of an arm and he's a good athlete. He's a quarterback who can move around and throw the ball on the move."'

Marker Cocky Losman believes he's as good as it gets [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He's highly competitive, which probably rubs some people the wrong way," said Bills President and General Manager Tom Donahoe. "But that's the business we're in. We're in a competitive business, and we want people that want to lay it on the line every time they go out on the field, and when they're not successful we want them to be upset."'

Marker Knee injury couldn't slow down Evans [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"From when I was little he would always tell me about how hard it is getting up and working in a factory every day," Evans said Saturday on a conference call. "It's hard (work), to say the least. But my dad is a very hard worker, and he does what he has to do. He gets up every morning and goes to work to provide for his family. He instilled that work ethic in me. He's always inspired me to do some of the things he didn't do."'

Marker Bills' fortunes rely on more than draft alone [8:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Tom Clements - Has the new offensive coordinator cooked up the right Travis Henry-McGahee casserole? The Bills are a running team now, or so they tell us. Nevertheless, Eric Moulds is still their best player. Will Clements make him more than an occasional weapon?'

Marker Bills drop another smart bomb, and it had better hit its target [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'After awhile, you start to wonder if the Bills' primary objective on draft day is to show the football world just how smart they are, to prove that, if nothing else, they're more daring and inventive than any other organization in the league.'

Marker Bills get receiver, trade for Losman [5:17 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'No sooner had NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue announced the Losman (pronounced LAHS-man) pick than speculation about the future of Bledsoe begin.'

Marker Losman brings his Kelly-like swagger to Bills [5:16 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Losman is nothing if not cocky — in a Jim Kelly, grab-your-face mask kind of way. No, we’re not saying he’s the next Kelly. That would be unfair. But he appears to have take-charge leadership qualities that Kelly’s err apparents Todd Collins and Rob Johnson sorely lacked.'

Marker Donahoe, Losman linked [5:15 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'A bold move? Try one that sets the course for Buffalo’s future more than any made on draft day in the last 20 years. Forget Willis McGahee, the injured running back taken last year. This move will make or break Donahoe’s career.'

Marker Wheels and a deal for Bills [5:14 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '”The guy’s a leader, he has a heckuva an arm, he’s a good athletic quarterback who can move and throw the ball on the run,” Donahoe maintained.'

Marker Donahoe gets his man in Losman [5:13 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'But, of the four QBs tabbed in the first round, he evokes the most mixed reviews.'

Marker Bills deal up to get Tulane QB [5:12 AM]
Niagara Gazette reports: 'Losman perfers the word confidence to cocky. Arrogant is not appropriate.'

Marker Bills Receive Help in Speedy Evans [5:11 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'In Evans, they get a deep threat receiver who was shown himself to be productive throughout his career with the Badgers.'

Marker Buffalo bolsters anemic offence with QB, wideout [5:10 AM]
Toronto Star reports: 'One was for today. The other was for tomorrow. Both were bold moves.'

Marker Lucky 13 for Evans [5:09 AM]
Wisconsin State Journal reports: 'The situation in Buffalo could not be much better for Evans. He's going to a team that ranked 30th in offense last season, but has an established quarterback in Drew Bledsoe and another quality receiver in Eric Moulds. "They've got a great defense and a great quarterback," Evans said. "Some of the receivers there, in Eric Moulds and Josh Reed, I think they're two people I can certainly learn from."'

Marker Patience finally pays off for Evans [5:08 AM]
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports: '"We think he is going to bring a special dimension to our offense," Tom Donahoe, president and GM of the Bills, said of Evans. "We think he can come in and contribute and help us to get our offense back on track."'
