Two Bills fans announce picks ... for other teams


During Friday night's second round of the NFL Draft, two Buffalo Bills fans announced selections.

But not for the Buffalo Bills.

Jordan Schwartz was a winner of Bud Light's "Up For Whatever" contest -- because he is a huge Bills fan -- and Bud Light tweeted that he would be announcing his favorite team's second-round pick.

However, the Bills traded their second round selection -- No. 41 overall -- to the St. Louis Rams in a deal that moved the Bills down to No. 44.

When the Rams came up at No. 41, former Ram Kevin Carter introduced Schwartz as being from Buffalo. Then Schwartz announced the Rams' selection of Florida State safety Lamarcus Joyner.

Schwartz, a 2005 Williamsville East graduate who lives in Washington, D.C., tweeted to The News: "Supposed to do bills pick but once trade happened they had me do 41 regardless. Oh well. #GoBills."

Andre Reed announced the Bills' pick of Alabama lineman Cyrus Kouandjio at No. 44.

When the San Diego Chargers made their selection at No. 50, after a trade with the Miami Dolphins, Marisa Scime made the announcement.

Scime, who lives in Miami and works in public relations for Norwegian Cruise Line, describes herself on her Twitter profile as "a die hard for my hometown teams @buffalobills & @buffalosabres."

She tweeted tonight: "For the record: I AM A DIE HARD @Buffalobills fan. #BillsMafia for life. Amazing experience at the #NFLDraft but, I'm NOT a chargers fan :)"

Here's how Schwartz won the contest -- his video shows how huge of a Bills fan he is. Warning: There are multiple Zubaz sightings. 

Schwartz, who does corporate sponsorship work for his alma mater, the University of Maryland, after working for the Washington Wizards for 2-1/2 years, is the second winner of a Bud Light NFL-related contest with a Buffalo connection.

During this year's Super Bowl, 2009 Buffalo State College graduate Ian Rappaport was featured in a commercial.
