Marker Bills Draft Outlook: Cornerback [1:41 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'If the Bills stand pat at ninth overall, it would be a bit of a stretch to consider one of the top cornerbacks being in consideration for that pick. Based on the talent level of this draft that will likely push the top cornerbacks down the draft order, the Bills could be in prime territory at 41st overall to land a cornerback that could have been selected in the first round during weaker draft years. They’ve been bringing in numerous fringe-first round cornerback types, and some that could even be available in the third round. It would not be surprising at all if the Bills used a Day Two selection on the position, considering the type of pressure that will be put on them this coming season.'

Marker EJ Manuel: ''I want to make that big jump'' [1:38 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: ' I think previous to the injury; well I had the injury, the first one, in preseason so I think I played pretty good. I know there is a lot of area for me to grow and that’s why I took these last four months to allow that growth. Even when I was trying to rehab and things like that I was still trying to get better mentally. I think there is a lot out there for myself as a quarterback to get better.'

Marker Bills Draft Outlook: Offensive Tackle [1:57 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'If the Bills stay at ninth overall, the overwhelming speculation is that they’ll use their first-round pick to find themselves a starting right tackle. If Jake Matthews is still available when the Bills logo pops up and they’re on the clock, the team would have a hard time passing up on someone with his type of pedigree and experience at a high level. If the top two tackles are gone, the Bills could select Michigan’s Taylor Lewan at ninth overall, or they may elect to wait for one of their Day Two selections to find their new starting right tackle. Regardless of when they address the position, the Bills could still elect to draft another offensive tackle late on Day Three to develop in addition to the earlier selection. At the very least, they’ll sign an undrafted free agent to compete for a roster spot.'

Do you think he would be a good partner for us or be somewhat of a maverick and be in it for himself? All questions that have to be answered. It’s not just the USFL stuff.
