  1. The title of this thread led me to believe that AJ McCarron would be announcing our 5th round pick. That would be newsworthy. Let's see if McCarron can generate draft action like Matt Cassel, who accounted for Bills' picks in 3 straight drafts: 2015 draft: No. 137: Buffalo → Minnesota (PD). Buffalo traded this selection and their seventh round selection in 2016 (240th) to Minnesota in exchange for quarterback Matt Cassel and... 2016 draft: ...Minnesota's sixth round selection (187th) 2017 draft: No. 171: Dallas → Buffalo (PD). Dallas traded a fifth-round selection to Buffalo in exchange for Buffalo's seventh-round selection and quarterback Matt Cassel And with that #171 pick, the Bills selected... Nathan Peterman.
  2. Not surprising that Whaley didn't expect a QB; he was from the school of thought that you don't draft a QB until you absolutely have to. He may have expected them to take a WR, but Davis & Williams were already off the board and the next WR taken was Zay Jones.
  3. Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said Leonard Fournette will not face any team discipline stemming from his arrest last week. Fournette was arrested in Jacksonville for speeding and "knowingly driving with a suspended license." Marrone called the situation a mistake and added he was arrested for a similar offense when he was younger. The incident was a concern given Fournette's seemingly strained relationship with the organization, but the Jaguars are content to let it blow over. SOURCE: ESPN Apr 16, 2019, 12:19 PM
  4. If the mistake of not picking up Sammy's 5th year option is the measuring stick, then I hope McBeane didn't learn from that mistake. I believe the teams who passed on Shaq thought he would need surgery, and Whaley was confident he wouldn't. As was typical during the Levy/Brandon/Nix/Whaley regime, the Bills were not proven to be the smartest guys in the room on that day.
  5. Wouldn't it be nice if teams made charitable donations like that on draft day? IIRC, I traded #9 to ATL for their 1st & 2nd, then traded that 1st to WAS for their 1st, 2nd, & 3rd. In a world where UDFAs make the team, why shouldn't all of our draft picks?
  6. DK Metcalf isn't the first WR drafted The Jets draft an OT in the 1st (probably after trading back a few spots) Ed Oliver goes in the top 6 Devin Bush goes before Devin White Darrell Henderson is the 2nd RB drafted The Lions and/or Dolphins draft a Rutgers CB that Belichick wanted The Bills pass on Fant or Irv Smith to draft Jace Sternberger, causing this board to collapse into itself & vanish without a trace
  7. Not only did the Vet have a jail, it also had a courtroom. Unruly drunks were given due process before they even had a chance to sober up.
  8. I question the math that grades this a B+: Your score is: 30252 (GRADE: B+) Your Picks: Round 1 Pick 15 (WASH): Devin White, ILB/OLB, LSU (A) Round 2 Pick 8: Jeffery Simmons, DT, Miss. State (A) Round 2 Pick 13 (ATL): Dalton Risner, OT/OG, Kansas St. (A) Round 2 Pick 14 (WASH): Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa St. (A) Round 3 Pick 10: Lonnie Johnson, CB, Kentucky (A-) Round 3 Pick 19 (PITT): Devin Singletary, RB, FAU (A) Round 4 Pick 10: Jachai Polite, DE, Florida (A+) Round 4 Pick 20 (PITT): Dru Samia, OG, Oklahoma (A) Round 4 Pick 29: Ross Pierschbacher, OG, Alabama (A+) Round 5 Pick 9: Lamont Gaillard, C, Georgia (A) Round 5 Pick 20: Drew Sample, TE, Washington (A+) Round 6 Pick 8: Stanley Morgan Jr, WR, Nebraska (A+) Round 6 Pick 19 (PITT): Cameron Smith, ILB, USC (A) Round 7 Pick 11: Will Harris, FS/SS, Boston College (A+) Round 7 Pick 14: Blessuan Austin, CB, Rutgers (A) I did another draft for the Raiders in which the Bills moved up to #4 by trading #9, #40, & #74... then took OT Andre Dillard. Maybe the AI thinks Whaley's still in charge.
  9. That place was a dump, but I loved it.
  10. Mike Quick developed patellar tendinitis, leading to reduced playing time & his retirement. And now you know the rest of the story.
  11. Holding grudges, chasing perceived slights on twitter, general crazinesss... is Antonio Brown laying the groundwork for his presidential campaign?
  12. ASJ offers nothing in the run after catch department, so it's only an 8 yard threat. After 9 years of Gronk, I don't believe for a second that the Pats are content to sign ASJ and call it a day.
  13. By now you know the name Deebo Samuel, but do you know where it came from? Turns out, “Deebo” isn’t the real name of South Carolina’s Heisman contender; his actual name is Tyshun. He earned the nickname “Deebo” from the neighborhood bully in the popular movie Friday because he too was the neighborhood bully growing up. Samuel’s father said in an interview, “As a kid I always took him over to people’s houses, and he always took stuff from people. Everywhere I go, I had to argue with somebody’s parent about him taking stuff from somebody’s kid. Pushing kids down. Being Deebo. Just being a bully.” https://kentuckysportsradio.com/football-2/deebo-samuel-earned-his-nickname-from-friday-bully/
