Cordarrelle Patterson, Tyler Bray make pre-draft visits to Bills


Former Tennessee wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, one of 23 prospects who accepted the NFL’s invitation to attend the draft in two weeks, is visiting the Bills on Thursday, the club said.

Patterson’s college teammate, quarterback Tyler Bray, is also visiting Buffalo on Thursday. Bray also worked out for the Bills over the weekend.

According to the Bills’ pre-draft visits log, Bray is the eighth quarterback to officially meet with the club at its facilities in Orchard Park, New York. The other passers to visit the team were E.J. Manuel (Florida State), Mike Glennon (N.C. State), Geno Smith (West Virginia), Landry Jones (Oklahoma), Jeff Tuel (Washington State), Matt Scott (Arizona) and Matt Barkley (Southern California).

The Bills released Ryan Fitzpatrick, their starter for most of the last three seasons, in March. To help replace Fitzpatrick, Buffalo added Kevin Kolb, formerly of Arizona.

Other prospects visiting the Bills Thursday were Rice tight end Vance McDonald and Fresno State safety Phillip Thomas.

The Bills hold the No. 8 overall pick in April’s draft as well as one selection in each of the next five rounds.

  1. Patterson is going to take a year or two to become an NFL receiver. Big and has great talent, but not a good route runner and is a bit of a showboat.

    Bray-run away very fast. Million $ arm and ten cent head.

    @jimbo I don’t know what game you were watching but Patterson is no show boat.

    Ha ha, you have to be joking right? His signature move is doing the Neon Deon high step. He had a touchdown called back last year because of that crap. After you thought he would have learned his lesson, he did the same crap two games later. The same story goes for both Patterson and Bray-great players, but the maturity of a 6th grader.

  3. The Bills need a OL (Tackle), WR, Or OLB.. Wait till the second for Nassib. Your play maker is Spiller. And you need a line. A steady QB. Not a great one. Just one that can make plays when his number is called. And Stevie Johnson desperately needs a number 2 across the field from him. Spiller is the Future of that offense hands down! lane Johnson,Ziggy Ansah,Patterson, Austin, Wormack,Cooper,even Xavier Rhodes. Would all be great picks at 8. For the Bills.

  4. And all you fools saying Patterson is over rated. Is just dumb. Big body. With play maker written all over him. If this kid turns out to be a bust? It’s simply cause he went to a crappy system.
