Come back every Monday, Wednesday and Friday as I choose my five favorite Buffalo Bills and NFL Draft links to share. Feel free to submit your own links in the comments.
1 Bills Sanborn Chases Perfection (Via BuffaloNews.com)
PITTSFORD – Garrison Sanborn learned about the anonymity that comes with being a long snapper at a young age.
“I played at Jesuit High School [in Tampa, Fla.]. I played center, linebacker, and I snapped there, too,” Sanborn said. “That was when I first learned I won’t ever get recognized. At our awards banquet, I got the unheralded player award. My coach [Dominick Ciao] saw me and was like, ‘It’s you, your mom and me. That’s the only three people who should know your name’
2 Buffalo Bills Training Camp Report 8/4 (via Billszone.com)
It was Day 9 at Buffalo Bills Training Camp and a scorcher outside, easily the hottest day since the team arrived at St. John Fisher in late July. The stands were packed, the players were in full pads and fans got to enjoy the first live hitting goal-line work of the year. Coach Gailey gave the players four chances for both the #1 and #2 teams to score at the goal-line and allowed full contact. The team also spent extra time working on red-zone drills, plus the usual 1-on-1′s, 7-on-7′s, 11-on-11′s and special teams drills.
3 Buffalo Bills Release Updated Depth Chart (via BuffaloBills.com)
Editor’s Comments-Some interesting developments with the Bills depth chart as we head into our first preseason game. Free Agent Vince Young has yet to be able to unseat QB Tyler Thigpen. Stevie Johnson, Donald Jones, Derek Hagan, and David Nelson are your top four WR’s. Gilmore is already in the starter slot opposite Williams.
When two perennially good programs (Georgia and Florida) from the perennially best football conference (the SEC) play football, you’ve got to watch – especially when they have as many dynamic defensive players as these two teams have.
Every year, there are a handful of prospects that are goung to split the opinions of evaluators in half (see: Tebow, Tim). So far, that player this year is LSU’s Tyrann Mathieu, otherwise known as the “Honey Badger” and was the only defender to be a legitimate contender for the Heisman Trophy, albeit mostly for his skills as a electrifying return man.
