The Buffalo Bills are coming off of a busy week at Bills Drive in Orchard Park, N.Y., as training camp continued to roll along while the Bills also played their first home game of the preseason versus the Minnesota Vikings on Friday. The Bills are now halfway through this year’s preseason, and less than three full weeks away from their regular-season opener versus the New England Patriots.

Over the course of the past week here at Buffalo Bills Draft, we’ve had reports from people on the scene at both training camp and the Bills’ clash with the Vikings, along with full coverage of all the latest Bills news, including a major shift in the quarterback competition. Here’s a look at back at what Buffalo Bills Draft’s best have had to say in the past week.

My week at Buffalo Bills training camp has sadly come to an end. It has been great to see Buffalo’s young team at work over the last three days and in truth, my expectations have risen after seeing this team live. Based on my three days at camp, here are five predictions I see coming true in 2013.

While attending Wednesday evening’s Bills practice, I had a “Eureka!” or “A-ha!” moment. I was fortunate that this moment lasted for more than two hours; previous “Eureka!” moments that I’ve experienced were usually short-lived events that occurred while taking freshman algebra.

The moment was early on during 7-on-7 drills yesterday when I realized that Marquise Goodwin, a third-round pick rookie wide receiver and kick return specialist from Texas, should be a starting wide receiver for the Bills offense. To say that Goodwin’s performance on Wednesday was spectacular would be an understatement.

He stuck out on the St. John Fisher College field like a roach on a wedding cake. I began to ask myself why Goodwin was not starting as a wide receiver for the Bills. There is not one wide receiver on the current Buffalo Bills roster with the upside Goodwin has.

Remember Heads Up, Seven Up? Of course you do. Everyone played this guessing game growing up in elementary school. I use the term guessing lightly, because let’s be honest, a lot of kids peeked and watched who tapped their thumbs.

On Tuesday, I felt like one of those students who peeked, so to speak. During the Buffalo Bills’ morning practice, I saw a glimpse of how the rookies and veterans are performing, players who should stay as depth and which Bills players are on the verge of emerging as superstars. Based on Tuesday’s practice, here are seven players whose stock is going up.

To call Monday afternoon’s practice uneventful would be an understatement. To be fair, Buffalo had a preseason game on Sunday and flew back into Rochester, N.Y. Sunday evening. While the practice was a bit light, there is still plenty to talk about.

Quarterback Rotation

Buffalo’s three quarterbacks took time working with the offense Monday. Of the three, EJ Manuel exhibited the best natural arm. Manuel connected on a deep pass to Chris Hogan early in the practice. The ball was perfectly placed and Hogan caught the ball in stride. Later in the practice, Manuel dialed up another deep pass, this one intended for Robert Woods. Manuel’s throw was on the money, but Crezdon Butler broke up the pass at the last possible second.
