BY DAN BEGNOCHEIt's no secret that the Buffalo Bills are looking for another wide receiver.Buffalo has passed on a number of big and mid-name wideouts since the free agency period began, leading us to believe that the need will be filled this weekend during the draft. (photo: Tennessee Journalist, Flickr)Tom Roth, the Bills' scout for college football's SCC and ACC divisions, shed a little light on Tuesday about one player the team has been eyeing down south -- former Tennessee and Tennessee Tech star Da'Rick Rogers."On the football field, he's a big, strong, physical cat," Roth said via the John Murphy Show. "Great looking kid. Muscled up, thick. You know who I kind of compare him to, is Eric Moulds ... Big, physical, strong receiver, really good body control, really good ball skills."Moulds, a Bills staple for 10 years, put up more than 9,000 yards and 84 touchdowns with the team in his career, that despite a streak of some sketchy signal-ca...

Bills might pass on Ryan Nassib for Matt Barkley

Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib's value in the 2013 NFL Draft depends on who you ask. Some would say he's the top QB in the draft, others say he's 2nd round and beyond-worthy. The Bills apparently are starting to think the latter, as it's being reported that they're more interested in USC's Matt Barkley. The natural assumption all along has been Nassib to reunite...

Report: Ryan Nassib in play for the Bills at the 8th pick

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib is in play for the Buffalo Bills and the 8th overall pick when the draft kicks off on Thursday night. Nassib is definitely in play here, sources said. He played for Bills coach Doug Marrone at Syracuse, and I’m considering him in this group only because of that unique tie to the Bills. Otherwise, his...

Nassib was named to Pro Football Weekly's All-American team and was given the starting slot. For the last two seasons, Pro Football Weekly's All-American quarterback was last year's No. 1 NFL Draft selection Andrew Luck. The Positive:...

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Tavon Austin is the number one player on the Buffalo Bills board. The No. 1 overall player on the #Bills board? Tavon Austin. So… Would they trade that?

Buffalo Bills embark on ‘Project 17′ in 2013

The Buffalo Bills thought they had the answer with “Project 2”, again with “Project 6”, all problems solved with “Project 9, 10, and 15” but they all failed.  Will “Project 17” be the last? Only in time will we know.  One wouldn’t think a professional football team would have to go through this.  A pyramid of top GM’s, scouts, and coaches, but here they are...

EJ Manuel goes to Buffalo Bills as first quarterback taken

There was a stunner in the NFL Draft when the Buffalo Bills selected EJ Manuel at No. 16 overall on Thursday. He was the first quarterback taken in the draft. Manuel had been mentioning in interviews that he hoped either the Jets, Eagles, or Bills would take him. He said he felt like he had impressed all three teams. Looks like he was right on with Buffalo, but the surprise is that...

Will the Jets force the Bills to make Nassib the first QB drafted?

The Buffalo Bills appear to really want Ryan Nassib, and that isn’t much of a shock, since their new head coach, Doug Marrone, is Nassib’s old college coach. They may have to make Nassib the first quarterback selected in the 2013 NFL Draft, unless some team reaches for Geno Smith prior to them with the eighth pick.It appears that the Bills are concerned that the New York Jets...

No secret: Bills are QB-focused entering NFL draft

Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix has dropped enough hints over the past six months. The message is clear: Nix is keen to select a quarterback in the NFL draft. Nix first mentioned the need to develop a QB in November, when the Bills were bumbling toward their eighth consecutive losing season. Very little has changed, with the team in the midst of another start-from-scratch...

My Bills 6-round mock draft

I have to admit, I've been really slacking on stealing people's info on the draft and passing it on as my own like 9/10 experts/fans do. For those who don't know, I'm not exactly the biggest fan of the build up to the NFL Draft. I think it is an event everyone pretends to be an expert in and when they get a pick wrong during a mock or declare this player is going...

Tons of smoke coming in and out of “Buffalo”

i have to admit as a huge Bills fans, this is one of the strangest draft processes I have witnessed.  I usually can tell who the Bills are going to draft by this time, but I am lost when it comes to our first rounder this year.  Why, you might be asking yourself? It seems like more and more smoke is coming from Buffalo than any team in the NFL Draft.  I have heard, E.J. Manuel...
