Mini-camp began in Buffalo on Friday, May 7 as Bills’ rooks tried to avoid uber-pwnage. This camp features all first and second year players for Buffalo as they try to get in shape, get the attention of coaches, and get themselves in a position to make the team come fall.
On hand was former Virginia Tech offensive tackle Ed Wang, the Bills’ fifth-round pick, who – if he makes the roster as expected – will become the first full-blooded Chinese player in NFL history.
Surprise first-round pick and former Clemson running back C.J. Spiller was also in gear for the beginning of camp. “It was great,” said Spiller of his first day of action. “I was just really anxious to get back going. I haven’t played since the end of December. I was really excited to started back up and be out there with the guys running around and learning the playbook.” It’s good to hear he was anxious too – I know a lot of Bills fans are feeling the same since he was drafted. Lots of eyes will be on Spiller to be the big play maker that Bills brass promised.
