Hoping we get another RB in the 6th or 7th. Freddy is done after this year, he's already 32.

I was surprised. Bills were 10th against the pass. Better than I would have expected. To mw...the WRs can play right away and should. It's all on Kolb's shoulders. Can he get the bakll out there deep to make them effective and stretch the field? After the Draft here okay I bite, could be a playoff team, atleast battling. D should be a lot better. Just sign Dansby, Nelson and Byrd and i'm ready to go.

Crazy but...what about Nelson as a TE?

Why pass when you can hand the ball off for 5 yards every play? Even the Patriots did this. Nelson doesn't have the size to be a TE (which he'd need for blocking).

Has Ryan Griffin been picked up yet? He's a sensible pick in the 6th or 7th.

Nope just won't go to any more games or spend any money on them until they are actually good again. We'll see if EJ Manuel will be a franchise QB, not confident in that at all. Every publication called the Manuel Pick one of the worst ever, so my opinion is one that's widely shared.

When you can pass, then you get 6 or 7 yards when you run. Being unpredictable is the most key underrated sports variable that people never talk about.

Big competition at kicker this year. lmfao. 3 kickers on the roster this year guys, good to have depth there. Must be why we kept Brad Smith to be mediocre to bad at every position, so we have extra room for kickers. Buddy has to go. Sorry. Can't believe I sat here an hour for a kicker. Have a good day guys, I'm out before he picks the water boy with the 7th.

Don't know anything about him...but we need a kicker. Lindell simply doesn't have the range anymore (on kickoffs and field goals). Granted, how much of that was Gailey not giving him chances is not known, but we need to have a kicker that we can feel confident in attempting 50+ yard FGs. If that guy is not Lindell, then it has to be someone else.

If this guy is just a "kickoff specialist" like Potter last year (which was a complete flop...great in preseason, wasn't worth **** in the regular season)...not a fan of the pick.

He was 25/30 with a long of 56 last year. So But completely agree with Lindell

FSU fan, watched all his games. He's got a big leg with long range (50+ with ease) and should plant most of his knockoffs in the end-zone. His mechanics and trajectory are elite. He made a lot of clutch kicks but also missed a few big ones and is prone to slumping. He's got a big personality and I think you almost have to slow him down on kick coverage because he is skinny but will go full bore to make a tackle. As far as a kicker prospect, they don't get much better. Lindell is done.

Williams' off-field automotive things seem more like the stupidity of youth than anything else. Hopefully he's as good as some of the press guys are claiming.

We got a lot faster this weekend. Fastest TE (Gragg 4.50), fastest WR (Goodwin 4.27), even the 2nd fastest QB (Manuel 4.65). Woods and Williams not too shabby either (4.51 16th WRs, 4.52 4th Safeties).

I hope Marrone & Co are as good at coaching guys up as they appear to be counting on, or they just wasted an entire draft worth of picks.

One legit link that says "worst ever", just one please. I'm not going to call you the King of Hyperbole, but I have your crown ready.
