Marker NFL is front and center for ex-Sundevil Preston [3:53 PM]

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.

Marker It's tough to find fun during draft's long, long wait [9:26 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 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."'

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.'''
