Yesterday, the Bills hosted Clemson star Sammy Watkins and speculation started flying that Buffalo would look to trade up in the draft. The Bills are currently slated to pick at No. 9 but if they want this year’s No. 1 receiver, they’ll have to vault up into the Top 5. The Rams at No. 2 could be a potential trade partner since they’re said to be open to moving down. The Texans are also open to deals for the No. 1 pick but the asking price is rather high. The latest out of Buffalo..
- The Bills hosted Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley and Towson running back Terrance West on pre-draft visits today, tweets Mike Rodak of ESPN.com. Mosley, widely praised for his strong character and work ethic, is a likely first round pick. West won’t hear his name called on Day 1 but he is one of the better tailbacks in a class that is paper thin at the position.
- Jeremy M. Jacobs Jr, a member of one of Buffalo’s wealthiest families, says his clan is involved behind the scenes in the effort to keep the Bills in Western New York, writes Stephen T. Watson of the Buffalo News. “We are using our resources, our contacts, our relationships to do everything we can to ensure the Bills stay in Buffalo,” Jacobs said. When asked whether those efforts could include making a bid for the team, or joining a group making an offer, Jacobs did not offer a direct answer.
- Would Donald Trump make a good NFL owner? Former standout running back Hershel Walker sure thinks so. “He would be a great owner, and a credible owner,” Walker told Jarrett Bell of USA Today Sports. “People can think what they want to think about Jerry Jones — he’s a terrible general manager, but he’s a great owner. He has done a tremendous job in marketing his team to keep it relevant. I think that’s the same thing Donald Trump would do with the Buffalo Bills.”
