Scouting the Scouts: Where have the Buffalo Bills scou

Postby panxing18 » Thu Dec 06, 2018 10:44 pm

ts been spotted The 2018 college football season is well underway which means that NFL general managers and scouts have been hitting the road to watch prospects play live. Thanks to a few generous media members Buffalo Bills Hoodie , fans are able to get an idea of what games certain NFL teams are sending their scouts to on Saturdays. As one would expect, the Buffalo Bills scouts have been attending some of the biggest games in college football. So, what players or positions might the team be scouting? Find out below.Oklahoma-UCLASeptember 8thTop ProspectsOklahoma (WR Marquise Brown, RB Rodney Anderson, OT Bobby Evans, OG Dru Samia)UCLA (ER Jaelan Phillips, TE Caleb Wilson, OG Michael Alves)Grif’s take: Oklahoma’s offensive skill positions was likely the main draw, as Marquise Brown and Rodney Anderson are among the best at their position in the nation, but UCLA’s Caleb Wilson is also considered to be among the five draft-eligible tight ends.LSU-AuburnSeptember 15thTop ProspectsLSU Tigers (LB Devin White, CB Greedy Williams, OG Garrett Brumfield Cheap Customized Buffalo Bills Jerseys , TE Foster Moreau)Auburn Tigers (QB Jarrett Stidham, DT Derrick Brown, CB Javaris Davis, WR Darius Slayton)Grif’s take: The defensive talent in this game was unrivaled. LSU’s White and Williams are first-round locks and . are very high on Brown for Auburn. Brumfield was dealing with an injured knee during the game, but he is a very exciting prospect at a position of need for the Bills.University at Buffalo-RutgersSeptember 22ndTop ProspectsUB Bulls (QB Tyree Jackson, WR Anthony Johnson, LB Khalil Hodge, DE Charles Harris)Rutgers Scarlet Knights (OT Tariq Cole, CB Blessuan Austin, CB Isaiah Wharton)Grif’s take: Not sure why the scouts traveled all the way to Jersey when they could take a short drive to UB Stadium during any other game, but seeing UB talent take on a Big Ten team was likely appealing. Johnson and Hodge were the best prospects on the field, but the two cornerbacks for Rutgers are solid lower-round talents.Georgia-MissouriSeptember 22ndTop ProspectsGeorgia Bulldogs (CB Deandre Baker , S J.R. Reed, DE Jonathan Ledbetter, OLB D’Andre Walker, WR Mecole Hardman)Missouri Tigers (QB Drew Lock, DT Terry Beckner, TE Albert Okwuegbunam, WR Joseph Hall)Grif’s take: The Georgia defenders listed are all high-level prospects, Missouri’s talent has spent the year raising their draft stock all season. Okwuegbunam actually led both teams with 9 catches for 81 yards.Michigan-NebraskaSeptember 22ndTop ProspectsMichigan Wolverines (DT/DE Rashan Gary, DE Chase Winovich, LB Devin Bush, CB Lavert Hill, S Khaleke Hudson)Nebraska Cornhuskers (WR Stanley Morgan Buffalo Bills T-Shirt , DT Carlos Davis, CB Eric Lee)Grif’s take: Again, it was the defensive talent, specifically Michigan’s, that likely drew the Bills’ scouts. Gary has first-round stock, even if Michigan isn’t using him correctly. After adding some weight, Bush looks like a solid NFL starter. Six days after the Buffalo Bills drew national attention by hosting the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football, the Bills (2-6) are back in action Sunday, hosting the first-place Chicago Bears (4-3) at New Era Field. The Week 9 showdown will be seen by a much smaller audience than witnessed Buffalo’s first home Monday night game in nearly a decade. When Nathan Peterman makes his return to the Buffalo starting lineup, only fans living in the Buffalo and Chicago television markets will get to watch the game as FOX’s 1 p.m. Eastern telecast.The No. 5 broadcasting team of Chris Myers (play-by-play), Daryl Johnston (.), and Laura Okmin (sideline reporter) will handle the Bills/Bears clash.The areas that can see Buffalo are highlighted in green (map courtesy of 506sports):The national FOX audience is split between watching the Atlanta Falcons traveling to face the Washington Redskins (in red) and the Detroit Lions traveling to face the Minnesota Vikings (in blue). The other 1 p.m. Fox telecast pits the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Carolina Panthers (in yellow). This will be the 13th meeting all-time between these teams. Chicago leads the all-time series 7-5 Buffalo Bills Hats , but Buffalo won the last matchup 23-20 in overtime Sept. 7, 2014. Fred Jackson rumbled 38 yards — delivering a pair of stiff-arms to Chris Conte — and ran all the way down to the one-yard line, setting up Dan Carpenter’s game-winning 27-yard field goal. The Bears earned a 22-19 win on Nov. 7, 2010 in the last “home” game in the series, a game played at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario. The last time the Bills actually hosted Da Bears in Western New York, Travis Henry caught a 26-yard touchdown pass from Drew Bledsoe just 1:58 into overtime to lift Buffalo to a 33-27 win on Sept. 29, 2002. Bledsoe completed 28 of 36 passes for 328 yards with four touchdowns in one of his best games in Buffalo, while Eric Moulds hauled in eight passes for 124 yards and a TD in the win.
