Marker Bills go quarterback in fourth round [1:08 AM]

Marker 5 things to know about QB Cardale Jones [1:07 AM] reports: '“I assumed they were very interested based on my visit,” said Jones. “Coach Ryan was extremely honest with me. We had six Ohio State guys up there on the visit. He kind of told us straight to our face, particularly me and Adolphus (Washington), ‘Hey if we get a chance to get both of you guys when our picks are up we’re going to draft you guys.’ Just being around a guy like that from the beginning who is putting it all out on the table and let us know he didn’t bring us up there for no reason was a great showing.”'

Marker QB Cardale Jones will have time to grow [1:06 AM] reports: '“He doesn’t have that much experience and he got benched this year,” said Bills Director of Player Personnel Jim Monos. “He’s an easy guy to write off, he really is.

Marker 5 things to know about WR Kolby Listenbee [1:03 AM] reports: 'The Bills sixth-round pick is a speedster who can stretch the field to say the least. A deep threat specialist, Listenbee ran a 4.34 40 time at the TCU pro day. He also had a 35 ½-inch vertical leap with both numbers strong indicators of his explosion. His average of almost 20 yards a reception (19.9) demonstrates his big play ability.'

Marker Bills add speed with final two picks [1:02 AM] reports: '“It was definitely amazing,” Listenbee said over a conference call after being drafted. “I feel like it was a harmony, you know what I’m saying. The coaches and stuff, Sanjay (Lal) was really cool, I had the president, the GM, the (chief) of personnel, all of them, we had dinner and stuff. I enjoyed myself really. I loved it over there.”'

Marker 5 things to know about CB Kevon Seymour [1:01 AM] reports: 'Seymour sprained his knee in the Trojans game against Idaho and sat out two games after that.
