Buddy Nix says there’s nothing to trade rumors

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.

  1. I really don’t have a prefrence on who the Bills draft, as we don’t have many needs, atleast not like we used to, but there are player I hope the Bills avoid. Riley Reiff: Watch the guy play, he is Bryan Bulaga 2.0. He is a road grading run-blocker, not a blind-side protector, I like Johnathan Martin better on the left side. Quinten Coples: He doesn’t play to his measureables, he has a suspect work ethic, and I think coming off the bench his first year will make all of that worse. Luke Keuchley: He’s not a guy I wish the Bills wouldn’t draft, but I would prefer they go another direction at #10. You can’t take Mayocks word on this kid, he is the biggest BC homer out there, but something about him fitting in this defense bothers me. Sure, matching up with NE TE’s would be nice, but you can also put a saftey on the field that can do the same job, similar to Bryan Scott. Taking him here would be commiting to him as your #1 LB, why would you want your #1 LB to be responsible for containing TE’s? I’d like to see them add Lavonte David, he has more range and still put up a ton of tackles albeit a bit on the small side. Finally, Stephon Gilmore: Why? He may be rising up draft boards, but thats because guys like Janoris Jenkins and Dre Kirkpatrick are falling becasue of character concerns. He had an under-whelming college season against a batch of SEC offenses that aren’t as high-flying as they used to be. I use this analysis only to state how I feel about these players at 10, not how I feel about them in general, as all of them will be gone by pick 25, if not sooner.
