Rochester D&C reports: 'Nkemdiche is the guy who fell off the balcony of a hotel outside Atlanta in mid-December and was hospitalized with minor injuries. In his room, police found marijuana, though Nkemdiche denied having smoked it, saying only that he was drunk. Still, because the pot was found in his room, he was charged for possession.'

Marker Bills draft most important in years [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Logic says that maintaining the status quo in some areas and dumping salary in others — on a .500 team mind you — doesn’t improve a roster. If anything, Buffalo’s roster now has the depth of a conversation at 4 a.m. at Mighty Taco.'

Marker Doug Whaley explains how Andrew Luck cost Buffalo Bills a shot at Cam Newton [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"When we first started the draft process, we thought we'd have a good shot at Newton," Whaley told Sports Illustrated.

Marker Who is Robert Nkemdiche? HS coach says he's a 'worker,' good fit with Rex Ryan [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Then there's a personnel director telling The Journal Sentinel "The guy has disaster written all over him" ... another saying "he’d be a guy you give a big contract to and he’d be happy" ... and a scout adding "He doesn’t just think football, football, football 24/7."'

Marker Alabama defensive lineman sees Bills as perfect fit [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Scouts dub this one of the best defensive line draft classes in history. It could prove foolish to take zero swings at the plate. Buffalo released the lethargic, overpaid Mario Williams and are currently very thin up front. A large Bills contingent was on hand to see Reed light up position drills at Alabama’s pro day. When Reed needed to nix his flight to Buffalo due to the birth of his second child, the Bills took matters into their own hands.'

Marker Buffalo Bills considering Christian Hackenberg in round 1 [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Some in the NFL" might not be anyone in Buffalo, but the note is interesting. Hackenberg would be a reach at No. 19, but he seems to have done some rehabilitation of his draft stock in the last few months. After a standout freshman season at Penn State, Hackenberg floundered the last two seasons after Bill O'Brien left and was replaced by James Franklin.'

Marker Ex-Syracuse and Bills WR Mike Williams reportedly signs with Kansas City Chiefs [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The Chiefs have Jeremy Maclin in place as the No. 1 wide receiver, but Williams should compete with Albert Wilson, Rod Streater and Chris Conley for targets opposite Maclin.'

Marker Addressing Bills 1st round QB rumors, and Taylor's contract quandary [1:55 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Unless Hackenberg’s draft stock is suddenly skyrocketing in war rooms around the league, he should be able to be grabbed by the Bills at least at pick-49 when they select in the second round, and possibly even a round after that.'

Marker Jim Kelly: 'In Super Bowl, I had no clue where I was' [1:54 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"Maybe I should have got hit up side the head earlier in the game... I probably would have played better cause I think I threw two touchdowns when I had a concussion...I had no clue where I was"'

Marker Draft analysts: What Bills should do at 19 in 2016 NFL draft [1:53 AM] reports: 'Just about everyone that cares about the Buffalo Bills has an opinion on what the club should do with their first-round pick and on day two of the draft for that matter. Early round picks typically are, or become a team’s starters and core of the roster. Here is a collection of opinions from some of the noteworthy NFL draft analysts on the direction the Bills should take early in this week’s draft.'

Marker Thurman Thomas tells concussion summit he's suffering from uncontrollable mood swings and an in [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"When I started playing football as a little kid, the last thing on my mind was, ‘Will I be able to walk when I’m 50?' " he said, according to the newspaper. "Will I be able to keep a train of thought when I’m 45? When I’m 50, will I suffer from uncontrollable mood swings? And even worse, will someday I be so depressed that I would take my own life?"'

Marker Down on drafting wide receiver or offensive tackle early; the draft's most interesting question [1:58 AM]

Marker Hall of Fame RB Thomas struggling with concussion effects [1:57 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Thomas said the doctor told him after an MRI that the frontal lobe of his brain was "similar to someone who has fallen off the top of a house, on to the front of his head, or going through a windshield of a car several times. He said decent ... for an NFL football player who had just played in the National Football League for 13 years. Not great, but decent." '

Marker Thurman Thomas says he struggles with effects from concussions [1:56 AM]
ESPN reports: ' "On so many days, I have to apologize to my family for them. I thank God that I have a family that understands the things that I've been through over my 13-year [professional] career, and even after my 14 or 15 years that I've been retired. They all understand that with my mood swings, sometimes I just can't help it."'

Marker Bills begin Week 2 of offseason workouts Monday [1:55 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The team had excellent attendance last week for the first round of workouts. Of the players who are medically cleared to workout, wide receiver Sammy Watkins was the most notable absence the first day when the media was able to watch for about twenty minutes. But he was back in town later in the week and working out with his teammates.'

Marker Don't be surprised if the Bills take one of these three players in first round [1:54 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Here are a few names to keep in mind as legitimate possibilities, you know, just in case……'.

Marker Draft strategy: Build 'D' up the middle or on the edges? [1:53 AM] reports: '“You hear a lot about building up the middle and that’s pretty much the way Carolina has done it with the strength of their team being those defensive tackles and their linebackers,” said draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah. “They’ve got a premier corner in (Josh) Norman, but that team is really built up the middle.'

Marker QB: Cerebral, tested Kevin Hogan could be the best fit for the Buffalo Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It’s the same one we ran at Stanford,” Hogan said. “You’re going to have three plays called and you’ll have to go up to the line of scrimmage with 12 seconds left on the play clock and read the defense pre-snap and see what the best play is to get into. A lot of the game is handled before the ball is even snapped. Coach Roman is going to have a lot of play action, a lot of turning your back to the defense, a lot of turning around and seeing what’s happened.'

Marker Bills draft history broken down into top 5 lists [1:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Tom Sestak ranks at the top because he was a 17th-round pick in 1962 who went on to become one of the finest defensive linemen in Bills history, and some would say, pro football history. Seventeenth round — that’s 2½ modern-day drafts. Yet Sestak anchored the AFL’s best defense in the mid-60s and helped lead the Bills to back-to-back championships in 1964-65.'

Marker Trading down makes sense, QBs with 10-inch hands, Rex the compromiser? [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: ' "When you're picking in that 17 to 20 range, that's a hot spot for teams to trade up," former NFL general manager and current ESPN analyst Mark Dominik said. "When you set your draft board, there aren't exactly, in the case of this year, 31 first-round picks on everybody's board. Generally, there are 20-25 first-round graded players. And the reason there's so much action there is because some of these teams are down to the last guys (on their board) they feel are a first-round talent, and they want to make sure they get one of them."'

Marker West Virginia safety Karl Joseph visits Buffalo Bills [1:58 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The Bills could certainly use a safety. Aaron Williams' future is still up in the air, and Corey Graham isn't getting any younger. While they aren't desperate at the position, Joseph would be a nice option, particularly if he's around in the second round of the NFL Draft.'

Marker Bills mock draft 4.0 [1:57 AM]

Marker NFL legend breaks silence about concussions [1:56 AM]

I thank God that I have a family that understands the things that I’ve been through over my 13-year (professional) career, and even after my 14 or 15 years that I’ve been retired. They all understand that with my mood swings, sometimes I just can’t help it.”'

Marker AP sources: Bills travel to meet Alabama DT Jarran Reed [1:55 AM]

Marker Braxton Miller could be right fit Bills are looking for at WR [1:54 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'In fact, the Bills only have four wide receivers out of ten on the current roster who are under contract beyond this coming season: Watkins; Marcus Easley, who's primarily a special teams player and coming off a knee injury; Dezmin Lewis, who was active for only one game his rookie season; and Walter Powell, who is on his third NFL team and has only played six games in the NFL.'

Marker Why Bills fans should embrace drafting Cardale Jones [1:53 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Those that are likening him to EJ Manuel — and there are more than a few — aren’t only naive, but at least a tad ignorant about it as well. While it’s true, they are both 6-foot-5, black, mobile, and have displayed some inaccuracy... that’s where the comparison ends.'

Marker Bills rated third-worst drafters since 1996 [1:52 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'In fact, the best player the Bills drafted according to the results? Wide receiver Eric Moulds, all the way back in the first round of the 1996 NFL Draft. Former fifth-round pick and defensive tackle Kyle Williams was the second-best player according to the study.'
