Updated List of Pre-Draft Visit Players

Stephon Gilmore, Buffalo’s selection at number 10 Thursday night was fairly easy to predict, once Matt Kalil and Luke Keuchly were off the board.  Why easy to predict?  Because everyone of of Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey’s picks were guys who had come to Buffalo for a pre-draft visit, including Kalil and Keuchly.  Does a pre-draft visit sound like a formality?  Perhaps, but it should be noted that neither Michael Floyd nor Riley Reiff, two guys who were getting a lot of Buffalo-buzz were not interviewed by Buffalo, and both were available at a greater position of need when the Bills’ selection took place.

The Bills interviewed 30 players before the Draft and 15 of them were taken last night.  Here is the updated list of players I feel the Bills will have somewhere on their depth chart come 7pm tonight.  They are arranged per position, not in order of talent.  You will notice on there that only a single receiver is on the list.  I feel that that is the pick for the second round based on scarcity.  James Brown, the Left Tackle from Troy is my sleeper pick for the Bills.  He has the body and the long arms, which Gailey said he absolutely had to have in his LT, so keep your eye on him.  Those QB’s will all come off tonight, but I don’t think it will be Buffalo that selects them.  It is interesting to note that Stanford’s Coby Fleener is not on that list, much to my chagrine.  Anyways, check out the list, we’ll see you tonight!
