Buddy Nix has made no secret about his desire to get a left tackle in this year’s draft.
According to the Bills general manager, though, that desire has not led the team to start looking for ways to trade up or down in the draft to secure one. There have been reports pointing in each direction, but Nix said in an interview with the team’s website that he hasn’t done anything but listen at this point in the process.
“There’s no validity to it,” Nix said. “We haven’t expressed interest in moving either way.”
Nix said something else that should make you hesitant to equate their current frame of mind with their frame of mind later on Thursday night. Nix said that there won’t be any real action until teams are on the clock so the Bills could still find a deal that strikes their fancy.
USC tackle Matt Kalil would be the likely target if the Bills moved up with Stanford’s Jonathan Martin and Georgia’s Cordy Glenn among the possibilities if they went in the other direction.
