Buffalo Bills News - April 24, 2005

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]
Buffalo News reports: 'I suspect that we'll see a great deal of running but also a lot of play-action passes from the Buffalo offense as Losman discovers his sea legs.'

Marker Bills pick graduate of Tight End U. [9:26 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'At 6-4 and 241 pounds, Everett certainly looks the part. He's a terrific athlete with good hands and runs very well for a big man.'

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 Reed’s job could be in jeopardy with the selection of Parrish.'

Marker Patient Cards stick with picks to fill needs [5:08 AM]
Arizon Republic reports: '"We kept our communication open with Buffalo right up to the time of the pick," said Rod Graves, the team's vice president for football operations. "We also felt it wasn't going to work. And we had an opportunity at a player like J.J. Arrington."'

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]
Miami Herald reports: 'The diminutive Parrish will have to prove he can withstand the rigors of the NFL.'

Marker Bills add two receivers, fail to deal Henry [5:05 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.'

Marker Bills Select WR Parrish [10:38 PM]
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.'

Marker Bills: Henry trade options dwindling [10:36 PM] reports: 'The Eagles and Titans remain possible destinations for Henry, but the options are clearly evaporating. He has sworn that he will not play for the Bills again, so something has to give. Stay tuned.'

Marker Bills select WR Parrish with 55th pick [10:35 PM]
Sportsticker reports: 'The 5-10 Parrish declared for the draft following his junior season. He has 4.43 speed and is a dynamic returner, averaging 16.2 yards on punt returns last season.'

Marker Bills select WR Parrish with second-round pick [10:32 PM]
AP reports: 'A junior out of Miami, Parrish is regarded as having explosive speed and led the Hurricanes with 43 catches for 693 yards and led the ACC with eight touchdowns last season.

Marker Bills will keep an eye on the big picture [9:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Offensive line is the Bills' biggest area of need, followed by defensive line. A distant third on their list arguably is cornerback, where they are very deep but where Pro Bowler Nate Clements is entering the final year of his contract.'

Marker Success: An inside job [9:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Buffalo Bills are getting closer to the league's elite in terms of building through the draft. But the numbers suggest the Bills still need to increase their percentages of draftees on the roster.'

Marker Bills play the waiting game [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"You'd love to have a first-round pick, but again, we feel we do have a first-round pick (Losman) and he's on our team,'' Donahoe said. "And we feel good about that. Now, if the situation presents itself and it's the right player and we can make the move to get back in there, that would be great. If it doesn't, then we'll all develop a little patience this year."'

Marker RB Henry is the Bills wild card today [5:00 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“We’ve already (over two weeks before the draft), and this is most unusual, had calls from teams with first-round picks who want to get out of there,” Donahoe said at the annual pre-draft media luncheon 12 days ago. “And that may be more of the norm than not this year because of all the uncertainty about who the first-rounders might be.” Most draft experts feel this is a down year, talent-wise, especially compared to last. But Donahoe maintains, “We always think it’s a good draft.”'

Marker Donahoe on why the draft is so interesting [4:59 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“It’s the phenomenon of the draft,” he said. “Fans, the general public and the media know most of the first-rounders and who they are, at least potentially. That’s why there’s all the tension in the first round. Statistically, if you look at it, probably 50 percent of the first-rounders fail. But those are the players the fans know, they’ve seen these guys play, they’re in the draft books, the draft gurus talk about them so people can identify with them. It’s the second round, third round and middle rounds, where most (selections) are not household names.”'

Marker Bills get jump on first pick [4:58 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'Never shy about swinging a deal -- remember Drew Bledsoe was also a draft-day swap -- Donahoe has some bait this year.'

Henry has a year left on his current contract, and agent Hadley Englehard has indicated a new contract must be part of a trade.'

Marker Eagles will be player in trades [4:56 AM]
Trenton Times reports: 'Is he going to be an Eagle? It could happen, but the guess here is he lands in Arizona.'

Marker NFL draft can change lives of chosen players [4:54 AM]
El Paso Times reports: 'Dorenbos, who was nearly picked by the Green Bay Packers in the seventh round, benefited by being able to select himself where he was going to try out. "When I went to Buffalo, I was the only deep snapper in training camp," explained Dorenbos, who immediately signed a contract for the NFL minimum salary, $225,000.'
