For a couple days, he had no name. Then he was given one of the biggest. In 1994, there was only one Shaquille, a mastodon of a man, a pop-culture phenomenon and one of the world's most dominant athletes. Lawrence Lawson, a former college basketball player, marveled at how long his newborn son was and eventually... Read More

Repeat it with me: Grading NFL draft classes a day after they've been formulated is silly. I understand why people do it (page views!), but the reality is it will take two or three years before we truly know which teams hit it rich in the 2016 NFL Draft and which teams struck out. However, it's natural to have a... Read More

A pair of University at Buffalo football players with local ties will get an opportunity to continue their careers at the next level. Quarterback Joe Licata has accepted an invitation from the Buffalo Bills to participate in a tryout at the team’s upcoming rookie minicamp, while left tackle John Kling will sign as an... Read More

The Buffalo Bills hid their intentions well when it came to Southern California cornerback Kevon Seymour. Outside of a meeting at USC's Pro Day, Seymour didn't get the impression the Bills were that interested in him. As it turns out, though, the Bills liked what they saw, so much so that the team used its... Read More

Kolby Listenbee is really fast. Just ask him. The Buffalo Bills' newest wide receiver, taken in the sixth round, 192nd overall, called himself the "the fastest football player, probably, in the NFL," during a conference call with the Western New York media shortly after being selected. So, he's not lacking for... Read More

The Buffalo Bills continued to address their offense in the later rounds of the NFL Draft on Saturday. In the fifth round, the team took Arkansas running back Jonathan Williams. He missed the entire 2015 season because of a torn ligament in is his foot that required surgery, but Bills Director of Player Personnel Jim... Read More

The Buffalo Bills made good on their promise to add a quarterback in the 2016 NFL Draft. They did so by using a compensatory fourth-round draft pick Saturday on one of the draft's more polarizing figures – Ohio State's Cardale Jones. A 6-foot-5, 253-pounder, Jones made only 11 starts for the Buckeyes. He just... Read More

Defense, defense, defense. That's how the Buffalo Bills have approached the first three rounds of the NFL Draft. With the final four rounds getting underway at noon Saturday, it's a good bet that the Bills turn their attention to the offensive side of the ball at some point. General Manager Doug Whaley said Friday... Read More

With the fallout at Ole Miss, maybe Laremy Tunsil can leave behind that gas mask. In the days leading up to the NFL draft, we wondered if quarterback Chad Kelly had any regrets about returning for his senior season. Quarterbacks almost certainly were to be taken first and second overall. Draft analysts hyped others from... Read More

The Buffalo Bills were prepared to take Reggie Ragland with the 19th pick in the first round of the NFL Draft. So when he was still there at the end of the first round Thursday night, General Manager Doug Whaley got to work, calling each team at the top of the second round looking to move up to make sure the Alabama...

Several national publications believe the Buffalo Bills will turn their attention to the quarterback position in the second round of the NFL Draft on Friday night. In particular, Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook is projected to the Bills by three separate national publications. Others have the Bills addressing... Read More

Available talent and need blended perfectly for the Buffalo Bills in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. In taking Clemson defensive end Shaq Lawson, the Bills drafted a player who General Manager Doug Whaley says will step into the lineup from Day One as a starter in the team's defensive front seven. The... Read More

The NFL Draft is a time for unbridled optimism. Every team will profess they "got their guy" – particularly in the first round. History, of course, shows us it won't turn out that way. About half the players drafted Thursday night will end up being busts. While it will take years to know which of the 31 players... Read More

I get it. You're tired of mock drafts. I hear you. The buildup to the NFL Draft can be exhausting. By the time it arrives at 8 p.m. Thursday, most people have likely had all the talk of hand size, wing span and catch radius that they can handle. So, instead of subjecting you to one final mock draft – cheap... Read More

There are no fewer than a dozen players who would make sense for the Buffalo Bills in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday night. With clear needs in the front seven of their defense and cases to be made at quarterback, safety, wide receiver and offensive tackle, the Bills should be able to fill one of those... Read More

The NFL story that just won't die is back in the news again. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension for his role in the "Deflategate" scandal was reinstated Monday by the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York. As a result, Brady will not face the Buffalo Bills in Week Four. He'll... Read More

The wait is (almost) over. The first round of the 2016 NFL Draft begins Thursday night, so with that in mind, here are three draft-related ups and downs. Three Up 1. Trades! What's more exciting than your team moving up in the draft? When the "On the Clock" logo changes during the broadcast, that's compelling... Read More

Thurman Thomas suffers from uncontrollable mood swings and is unable to keep his focus. The Buffalo Bills' Hall of Fame running back made those sobering admissions Friday while giving a keynote speech at the International Concussion Summit at the Hilton in Niagara Falls, Ont. Thomas' comments, which he said are his... Read More

1. A case can be made for the Buffalo Bills taking a wide receiver in the first round of the NFL Draft, but I won't make it. It's true the Bills need depth at the position, particularly when looking at future seasons, but in the short term, any wide receiver taken is likely the fourth option on offense in 2016 behind...

1. The idea that the Pegulas have "final say" over everything that happens with the Bills is not a surprise. The idea that General Manager Doug Whaley runs every draft pick by them for approval ... is somewhat surprising. Whaley said Wednesday during the team's annual pre-draft luncheon that team owners Terry and Kim... Read More
