At season's end that's your sports update Chris brown and for John Murphy here on a Monday edition of the John Murphy show along with Donald Jones. And time now for us to head to the subway fresh take outline where joining us on the line. Is bill's new wistful that two time pro bowler pat DiMarco who is probably all wrapped up in March Madness right about now should as his South Carolina Gamecocks have done it the unexpected. They are through. To the sweet 161. Time in school history. They have gotten this far in internment. Pat are you waving. The crimson and black shroud. Late today. Our electrical outlet yesterday afternoon. Opt out of were loud crowd. And I'm sorry it's Garnet and black it's not for incidents guarded Noah but that I have to really think you gain muse who because. Tack at I have this. Think I have a lot to do friends now first of all. At the same time I want to thank you guys you did animus that my bracket but I'm still negotiate the negotiate you're glad it's out of I have a lot of friends would do things in the taught me to talk smack like all right so since the South Carolina beat them last night was the best things the best thing. It really made. All men coolest thing in the so there's always an on going battle returned him to real Carolina got. It watching people who are watching North Carolina fans. In Greenville, South Carolina cheered on the gamecocks. Are the only time they unified Carol I don't true. But it was pretty cool Cuba's leader on the income. I don't know if you saw this on the television but. There was a shot at the stands. When you know Carolina was going on that run and they were staying ahead at duke they weren't let them climb back into it. There is a fan in the stands where in a North Carolina Tar Heels Jersey and I've never seen a guy happier to be. If for South Carolina that he was in these high five in this south Kara South Carolina fan next to him. I mean it was like Carolina harmony to see do go down it was really about Tennessee. But my question and that is. You know when you are on campus playing in there. What is you know the cross sport support light on campus I don't think a lot of NFL fans and bill's fans here in particular. Really can grasp. The level of support that maybe you know football has for basketball and basketball has berg. You know whatever the primary spring sport might be it that's who can just maybe shed some light on the level of support that maybe in your instance at South Carolina was life. Com and it just you know they'll step through it is like Carol. Top you know crosscourt worked so when we're a couple of seasons in Moline and color are your basketball. Guys turned this color. You know could also return to all ma. But still he ought currencies duplicate their goodness earned their all those. It's it's just a respect thing it wants not a policy and added we are able to go to colonial life and Carolina actually get to concede. While they're playing football on the on the vessel quote we. Toward we have to let Kentucky knows what he's looking well out so. It was pretty cool just to see an end I don't want them went to erode its goal was. The first time in thirteen years and they've made to the tournament yeah. First whatever first ever back to back wins and just a touch of first going also a lot of excitement Columbia, South Carolina now. This statement thank you thank you see this as I did not get into some football talk now so for as well welcome the buffalo. Sergio earlier you emotions and everything right now at this time in the contract and known to be coming up in buffalo. Omnicom. So excited as applicable back screen cup side would be leading rushing team over the last two years home. You know mom Margaret Truman blast to Russia on them. I'm so excited blocker and he's just gonna play makers to based up on appeal you know talent. Mike Gillis these young guy who's you know cure some really awesome stuff on Dayton in the got. Referred their entire auto malls without my over there now so. It's cyclical extremes in there and you know which side of the plate first and they have you can't turn around and. Oh how much. A scheme carry over to you see here just based on the conversations you've had with coaches and and the like here you know and you know there's a tie. Between the Shanahan family in the coop reacts so you know you've got Rick Dennison here who comes from that Kubiak coaching tree. And quite frankly has worked with Mike Shanahan also back to their days in Denver you know you guys had Kyle in Atlanta. So do you see some carry over some similarities that'll help you hit the ground running when you get here in terms again acclimated to this team. Yet there's going to be a lot of period over which is not a done deal cooked properly but also. All I've always been such a student of the game that. You know I think the thing I can pick up and learn which is mr. trump in my game the better. Openness to bring some of that to buffalo now brought tradition of about the younger guys in the yachts and haven't got on campus even. It really kind of jump start them and help them help them anyway and lacking them. Hey that's it you know I tell these guys votes I know you're fullback who wide receivers and ones that we put in the stadium Al toys. Yeah known as as the guy who really has applaud the back do you really want the receiver via. See what went on line up in the slot in the peaceful nation I feel like throughout. This tournament and you know if my opportunity is called the Coast Guard Clint rather plant Curtis Sumpter. You don't you don't conduct continue to play makers are typical all these are there. You know and and here's the thing that that I want to get from you pat is that. You know when you heat you going to free agency and you know a lot of people are gonna talk to you about a lot of different things and so that comes off as genuine and some of the makes you wonder a little bit like easy just tell me what I wanna hear. Because they want me there or is this guy given me to be straight and to a man you know everybody that signed here through the free agent period. Has just been nothing but impressed with how genuine. Coach McDermott it is was there so maybe if you can just give us something that you came away with from your initial conversations with coach. That stuck with you instead I can play for this yet. Oh yeah war I particularly important instrument Carolina for a few years. What an incredible defense they and just about I've met Luc can that Thomas did so without a sense. They couldn't speak highly enough about cook them so that was kind of the first thing that once sat down on my visit and then go to an office. You know we ask now how they ought to go on but. The coolest thing was the first to shut down and says that something that you don't buy him out of the art studio business never heal a one year old couldn't stop them. You know coming back to him when you're in you're kind of how you can about them. Know that I got to balance is completely knocked off my feet or doesn't go bald. It wasn't. The last book about the kind of a battle last year like the but it was. We published annually. I was just kind of blown away and not just kind of things were. I think that the mania is it just me the characters trying to bring two to buffalo had just. You know just just to get that from his first impression was it was pretty incredible. And then the last well I've got for it you know training wise it starts to ramp back up now for a lot of you guys at. No and and your season was longer than most so you were probably taken at least half of February if not more. To rest your body. What we're out where you in terms of rampant things back up training wise. And what are you doing like at this point in the off season to be ready knowing that veteran mini camp is just about a month away less than a month away. Yes so I about a week and perhaps we saw that to you before and it just. Lou besides who server afterward there was no it was. Got to try to. Lou my body back are you ready for turning. Off the bit on out of these life and of the travel a little bit just to. You wouldn't go on George some downtime but. You know Monday through Friday at its its we're going back to work around our agenda at play here in Atlanta which after the last two years. Ryan's goal could give up. I'll don't do it for days reported equally. Three days a week featuring him in. One day we could Pilates now. Yeah I'm on a provisional general buffalo in tip top shape them and that is show the build popular or not. Sounds good so listen Patrick thanks very much for the time join us here today. Good luck to your gamecocks they've got Baylor up next. I think it's a Friday game. They can be a bit Madison Square Garden that's going to be little for those kids today. Well. Mattel I don't root against that black. On the wrong. Isn't this something going on and obviously he's all over a decade. Of you know that is that is insane at the U the ball in parent you do and it is you don't disclose McDermott. I well pat I look Florida's senior appear in the not too distant future in the meantime stay healthy gets strong and we look forward to seeing up here in uniform. RRR. I Patrick DiMarco bills Pro Bowl fullback signing him free agency just over a week ago joining us on the subway fresh take top line. You know you look at what he's going to be able to bring to the table and you know not to compare him but. It's hard not to mean Jerome Felton was here last year and I was good in short yardage. Jimmy Key clean linebackers out of the hole without a problem I think if there's one thing that DiMarco brings to this line offensive line up. That may be felt including he's just a little bit more versed in there's more versatility. More options and so when he comes on the field. I don't think that the opposing defense comes up to align it says it's Iran guys I don't think they can say that with him on the field do you have an unease. I'm looking at I think you you really have to account for the guy because you know you can test the blog activity as well for four career touchdowns right now. You know he's a guy who can get out of the backfield. And do things you know and he can do things his bases well and Tolbert is well you know also when both of these guys get on the field. You're talking about. Now you have to account for every one and you you know you have to account for it for stadium might ghostly. You know you have to account for Tyrod Taylor. But now you have a fullback who you have to make sure you have a lot of back and I can cover that guy as well and I think it just adds to how dangerous offense can be. When you haven't gotten can be versatile and do so many different things. Now you said that you did not have South Carolina beating duke admitted I didn't have in my bracket either. My wife. She had a dinner I'm not gonna tell you right now on it tell you right now. I've never seen. My wife more excited about any sporting event on the planet. She was about this game last night because she knew she picked South Carolina. So you wanna talk about it vested interest it was that tenfold. From our I mean she was so proud of herself it's because that is the thing. He's got to win it and I'll got to beat Baylor in the next round. I feel little steep but as best and they're on the role they are there are all now let me ask you speak. How does he do first quality you know perfectly don't picket here's the thing she went to graduate school it's your views her first year there. Was when they went to the final two and lost to Kentucky in 96 the pitino Kentucky. John Wallace that hold them yet so. She's on campus for that Ron I mean if you've ever been on a college campus when a team is doing that in determine its finance. And so she got wrapped up and that whole thing and became a college basketball and it's like as a duo Jim behind something with that I I would dead of a gratitude for that because she will willingly why I mean she was with me at the games on Thursday here in buffalo and were discount Watson joining together so it's nice that she got hooked on that because I mean I'll have eaten a lot of com. So yes or she she has some semblance of knowledge I mean she's not watching big Monday program has been an or anything but. She keep the casual like to it it's funny. I think this is a this is a woman things she's not gonna sit down and invest two hours and basketball team should be like if there's two minutes left and it's close to get it into that except I thought you might as bad as do I do another day you sit on the low what you look away once you heard that South Carolina was up ten on due to him that I know she she watched the whole second at rates if you like screaming in at all now she's she's not a stream while lest they start screwing up it's it's meant as speculative people's cell. My. I haven't and I'm Siemens and Pennsylvania and when I was playing on my cousins we all played football together all around saint meets. You can hear her. Screaming on the field you know how hard it is I mean you know it's very hard when you're playing on the field due to hear one person. Heard police console in sets of outings it's Obama you can do is here my. And here out of bill likely is if you screaming you look over the issue like them go analysts though. You know when she's at home watching games football games if she's rooting for a house basketball team she screaming in the same way. As if she's actually act a game and it's like you know we're actually all sitting in the living room right here with you. Where you screaming so. It's so bad to watch a game and I top. And I think if you're looking at this year's tournament the one thing that kind of turn the thing on its ear was. There weren't that many upsets in the first round to rest most of them were in the second round to go to the sweet sixteen that's where out more of the surprises. Happened and it usually doesn't go that way usually somebody surprises somebody in the first round somebody hasn't played a week they're there rusty and David bad shooting day and they lose to some twelve seater something right. And we really only saw one of those as that was Middle Tennessee State that won the 512 game. But against Minnesota but. Other than that there wasn't a whole lot and then you get to this that Iran is like the ones this to his guy that Jews got like holy. How it happened at the news last night. When I got back up here from. From New Jersey. I turned on the UCLA game late last night you were up and make it I got back I sacked. On the ball. Yes if it isn't crazy you know how little pac twelve basketball. Is easy on me and I post you know it's it's it's set. I I made a point to trial lots more pac twelve this year just to be more familiar with those teams and I really liked orient. Coming into the term it and then they lost their big shot blocker. Boucher yeah there's also scores like 1012 points a game he's their big rim protector and I think that's gonna really hurt them and move forward but. Whether they can take your Michigan here I mean they they technically got a gift in getting sick NC Michigan but their hot team. Yeah any of those you know packed. Packed in pac twelve. You talk about any US Cole so like the warriors. And footballs look different because of the waiting games are scheduled. Use you know what time gains are going to be used lead the West Coast games enforcement team for thirty. I'm on a Sunday but in basketball it's tough to watch those West Coast games and so you don't get to see guys like on the ball you you start to hear people. Talk about them and it's like who was a student I've never seen him play because on sleep easily by the army now on step curry and those guys like I don't get to watch them really play until. The playoffs come around you know and is because their plane at 1030 at night nobody's been up the last those gains with. And that's and the thing is I use only beaten Kentucky track that I get anybody to if I hit that game I think area. I think we're gonna heavily upon people to. As that that blindly yeah it took Kentucky just from what they've done last several years so well in NC a a B you know Kentucky and young team. But. I don't perhaps this year drive freshman class and they every it is like how do you have by threatening note you gentlemen I gotta think. Just extra work that takes. Is that the turnover yes like every year he's got to 55. And the tie dyed top guys as crazy as there was a time two years ago. There's some of the kids its stated next year to. He had nine McDonald's all Americans on his fifth and I asked them this treat the Benson. You guys have anything like. All Americans that are sitting the bench. Behind other freshmen all Americans it's is insane but you know what when you look at these big time college programs now. Alabama's football I don't know Kentucky has this but I know Alabama now has like a scouting department. You know in in on the football side. So I would think that he probably has a scouting department that's going out and fun and right guys he just comes in sits down on the couch he's closer right he closes it closes the deal and they in the coming Mears he has another five top us. So look will reset the table here or just have a little fun with some NCA TARP as it's been a fun tournament so far no question about it. But we do have to reset the table with respect to the bills and what they've added in free agency obviously the three wide receivers. Most recently are the headliners they did sign a quarterback. In Leonard Johnson. You know so it's not all on the offensive side of the ball. And you know you look at. The quantity. That's been addressed at wide receiver and you say well am I wondered that knocks it down the list but I don't think anybody feels at least at Twitter land with our Twitter poll today. That. Wide receiver is off the list of positional priorities I think people want to know. That this team has a proven modified. Playmaker. To add to the receiver position and the guys that they've added. Are certainly capable NFL receivers. I just think all three of them have been devoid of an opportunity to show everything that they can do on a football field Holmes is probably come the closest. With 47 catches for almost 700 yards and four touchdowns. But he's three years removed from that season back in 2014 with the raiders so. You know there's been some separation from that production can he recapture some of that. In an office here in buffalo with Tyrod Taylor I think that's a big hit and if that fans don't feel all that great about. Until they see the proof in the put. And coming to a new system. It's gonna take some time. And that's why I think NFL ready receivers is still high on the list for the bills and are in the 2017 dress. You know that the biggest thing with me is. Finding in a so ready receivers in the draft this tough you know because you just don't know how these guys are gonna translate transition over to playing this game in the NFL. The way the college game is now with so much passing this is these guys to spread out and run a Brit they're not gonna run a full route trees so when you get a guy we talked about a guy like Corey Davis who you know can run Iraqi because you see him run routes you see him actually. Do that over a guy like Mike Williams and you haven't really seen run a full route tree you know it's tough for these guys that to come. From college into pros and even Corey Davis coming from the Mac. It's you know it you're talking about a guy coming from the match can he come over and door right away it might be able to eat we know he can run routes but now you're talking about running these same route against. NFL DB's that will run the routes with you you know a soaking you catch the ball when the quarterback's throwing. On time and quarterbacks to throw it before you come out of your break. In the DBs a break in before you come out of your break you're never open in this league as a receiver you know you have because the bald guys hang in all will be on so can you tell us the boy that's we talk about win. Trend transitioning into an NFL wide receiver and for me rookies you know even if you take one high he just don't know what to do it. Don't want to do and there's you wanna talk about NFL readiness here's the added element for Corey Davis of the ankle surgery right he called it minor. All I know is the guy at two torn ligaments that had to be fixed that doesn't sound minor to me. He missed the western Michigan pro day he still wasn't ready obviously didn't do anything to become nine. So he's April individual pro day. Is going to be huge for him yet because NFL readiness also means being able to participate in OT games training camp all the things that are in the lead up to his rookie season. He can't just say. Good September. The wreck that I mean. And I'm not GM or coach wants to hear that so I think what happens in what he's able to do in April. Is probably gonna say a lot about where he's gonna go on the board peace can be ready till July. August. OP's top ten pick any more because you can't take it to 89 attacked and this can be ready to go year one that's a huge investment so. It will be interesting to see if he slips a little. If his health is still a question mark as it pertains to being wrapped ready to go September 27 team. We got to take a break here on the job Murphy show presented by NAPA Auto Parts we come back on the other side wanna talk a little bit as some of the mock drafts that are out there we'll bounce some of the picks off each other that. People have for the bills not only around one. So people are going as far as round three and four. That is ambitious and in March it but will will dive into it and see if they make any sense whatsoever. On the other side here on the job Murphy show presented by NAPA Auto Parts from one bills drive this is Buffalo Bills radio. Here on the John Murphy show Chris Browning for John Murphy along with Donald Jones and the reason I'm sitting immersed here today is because he was the recipient. Of the lifetime achievement award from the die college in annual awards are out there and for our honesty viewers they're seeing a photo of or actually accepting his award as and the guy tweeted out a congratulations to Merck. For a his lifetime achievement award in radio and television play by play. Broadcasting so congrats to him. It's well deserved so nice on a firmer and deserving day off as well. The death that the deserving look at the younger than it. That one of those terms that's been taken into Albania is that one of those of you now. Is like big debates about you know when you're cute ski in the war because it is part of team. That participation rate. Now all now come on now they gave out like the area I'll. It is today Monday if a guy's name or their views in the car now with yet don't play B is still hear about it tomorrow but you're. 8030550. To join us. 1888550. To 551. To get into a little bit of the mock draft talk because. They're flying in fast and furious all over cyberspace. And some you take with a grain of salt. Some cannon is you shake your head like what is this guy's name again this is this makes no sense for the bills. And and others academy keep those things that make ego and cat thinks note. You know I think at Chad Rooter from nfl.com. Is a guide it is plugged in to the level of talent. From the college ranks and has been doing this a long time and yet a three round not there was recently posted on FL dot com. And I found his draft rather interesting as it pertains to some of the positional needs we've been talking about here on the show today and how things may or may not have shifted. Based on the free agent signings that buffalo has made thus far. Three of them being at the wide receiver position to with a safety position they've got a corner Allen Leonard Johnson. Who comes in from Carolina. Who have coach McDermott knows very well. Got alignment invited costs they brought that George mills so you know they've been busy. But how does it impact their draft. Means in May be what they might be targeting now. As opposed to before when free agency opened so I'm gonna run down his picks through three rounds threes now and then. You tell me what you think so at ten. And I should preface this by saying. He's got Corey Davis off the board at five in Tennessee Titans but it picked him and he's got the bills taking Mike Williams a wide receiver at Clemson. And then second round pick 44. He's got the bills taking the Florida quarterback teased neighbor. Who doesn't run superfast but is seen as a pretty good cornerback and then in round three pick 75. He's got the bills taking the Alabama linebacker Tim Williams who has some off the field concerns. But has a pretty good resume as far as college production goes and could be a fit. For that weak side linebacker position so tell me what you think receiver corner linebacker first three rounds has a grant. I mean it is. I would be. I guess OK with that the Mike Williams picked I'm not a guy who is does I don't Mike Williams coming out you know I kind of put him in the same class as wood on to it will coming out. I don't think that. He's gonna be able to get into this we can do what you did in touts I think he really has a lot to learn about. Playing receiver in this league you run routes and being able to get separation. And I don't know if he can get that done. At his size in his speech. If he can come images spots guys out and and be a jump ball got us all good and dandy but just talk about taking a peek at number ten. I would like a guy that can do everything you know so I don't know about that it. So if that happened where Corey Davis is off the board five minute trying to get out of ten he's trying to get down aboard each I out of there. For me outside to get out anyway you know I'd rather see them get out anyway but if you taken some audience and I'd rather see takes a mud on the defense and solvable welcome. You know it's a linebackers it to DB I rather see you go there if you take somebody that says. But he has a Mets and you know I'm not really comfortable that they. So I 44 teased tabor he runs a 46 wanted to come time right which you know. I don't know that necessarily sets off alarm bells to say he's seen as his own scheme corner anyway. Which is why this guy probably has him mocked the bills known asking the coach McDermott plays how does that one grabbed the if if it. On terror a good though the bout that there was static Monica and about that there is such a lot of the a lot of shade below while ago with the hook. Okay I think when you look at at that corner coming off a 44. You know corner you need to be able to catch up now I know this is own steam and all that stuff from and it's more about. Beanie being quick in being Smart but I still want a guy who can catch up. And so for me I'm not an expert in corners you have to talk to them on like Marlon there were warned of a corner the DV coats or something like that but it. If you can't afford six I can probably get. I could probably get past you and I don't know if you're going to be able to catch you know so he's known as a good corner and he got it done obviously in this CC. Yeah I mean early in the in the pre draft period people were talking about him as being a first round here and then you know some of these measurable came in. And they're looking and his production and marry in the whole body of work together and you know did not do all that well at the time lineup that that should be the end all be all but I think I. Some definite pause right. These guys proud that a first round pick for us maybe is for somebody else but I don't see here itself. You know and sonar and his G viewers are looking at the list the quarterback prospects now and tabor is ranked as. 45. In the draft. I mean that puts him squarely in the cross here's where the bills are going to be around to pick 44 yeah. You know it if they take them you just hope that he's Smart enough to be able to play in this scheme because the one thing about playing in this the dominant receiver it's DB. If you lack in speed. You just have to be Smart enough so that you get to the position where you're supposed to be. Before everybody else you know so if you have a guy who's run in the fourth sixth. He needs to be Smart enough to understand where he's supposed to be at all times so that he does indeed be over the over the top so that he doesn't get caught out of position where he can't catch up. You know that forced six as something that coaches scouts Indians there really got to look at that and say you know do we want this guy this early in the draft even at 44. In Obama ran his own team he might be able to fit into that. And then Tim Williams a linebacker at 75 in round three the Alabama product who gets off the field stuff. But can run and hit needs is production is unquestioning can run in Haiti can cover. So personal linebackers something that you were talking about last segment bills need a week sidelined. We need somebody used he did some speed over there you talk about the two guys with guys like this you have an insulin. That are on the roster none of them are speed guy none of them are guys who can say. One week in week out basis can cover on a basket advertisements you need a guy who's who has since the a guy who can run and has been no immediate silent a silent and also he can you know he has some coverage of those just as you have speed doesn't mean that you can cover. So that's something he's gonna have to learn as well off the field stuff I don't know exactly what is all the field issues are. I feel like there's so many guys have all the food issues coming into this week some guys and a much better people once they dignity learn you know by other guys so this is structured place and it's either going to ask beasts are not being close McDermott and and Leslie Fraizer. Guys that he's a guy that's really been known to be Madison coach elect a mentor I could Tony Dungy in in those types of coaches my Tom now on Pittsburgh. So I think having guys like that isn't structure will help out a linebacker that has some talent. But for me you know those second two picks I'm OK with. The first one might wins mountain. So OK I go over to another one now this is Walter football just the other day this one was put together. They also have Mike Williams going number ten. To the bills' second round though it changes a little bit it is a quarterback but it's that UCLA kid Fabian Rhoden who ran like the wind and the sound by and he ran for 33 or 436 something like that. And a lot of people had. You know him a little bit further down on the board with any runs fast and people get all enamored with that the fifth on. And we via the MSG viewers are seeing him listed at 27 in terms of an overall rank. Which are put in at the bottom of the first round I don't know if he goes there. He's he's got a track background. You know obviously and his agent are gonna say well he's a football player who run press tracks are not attract guy who plays well it's not that oh is goes. Slightly you know not a big frame. And he can run like the win but beyond that onion is say I haven't done my homework on him I haven't seen enough film on him to really pass judgment. It's uninteresting picked there it makes sense to go corner especially if he's you know the bills again receiver first round but. I guess from the speed perspective on life. This from from a speed perspective yeah you have to like that pic com but the biggest thing is once again. DBs in the zone scheme have to be Smart now for me when you look at that conference and what they like to do out there's a lot of speed and their conference on the football side ray. That's what they do they just throw the ball all over the field. Arizona. USC have been using have good receivers. UCLA. You go up or did in Washington I mean they throw the ball all over the place and so you have DBs coming out of those schools. You know this typically they're there they're okay Stanford typically they're okay you know also because you have to be able to cover those wire receivers. He's well versed in man coverage I mean that's the right up on him. They like is certain I'm just read in the offing here it's as they like his size fluidity in open field tackling ability. Weaknesses. Are not turning PB use in interceptions so maybe his hands aren't the best things in Italy at one deputy formally at one interception 25 starts. And they throw the ball like crazy packed routes though. You'd be like once when I don't know if that's a maybe you had respecting you know or you're yeah or maybe doesn't have the ball skills. You know where he's high poignant. Maybe the other and he 6206. Cells in the crazy thing is. That's not considered big in this draft class. There's like eight or nine corners that are 62 or taller there's a couple of 63 guys in that Chris annual kid from Ohio as their Kurdistan if Ross state. 62 there's some the dues those Colorado kids are woozy he sits three and a whole macro IV. One of those kids walked bias in the media room. At the Tom nine. And I'm saying this I can you know get a crouch and back pedal that's my thing at the NFL level. That is who I think with these with these taller corners because the NFL now we know as a copycat league and we know that. You know they've been going into these these taller DB's. But you're talking about coming in and have in the play against Antonio grounds of the world. Here arsenals these the shift the receivers or receivers in the lead and not be like that you have some guys that are very shifty. And it's not my guys and a 63. Can you really get into a stance and be able to cover those guys I mean. I would think that those athletic can make it and let alone let alone flipped their hips in turn right not lose speed you know in transition exactly so it's. It's hard I know everybody it's a copycat thing in everybody's going to the bigger corners. But buyer beware when you're talking about these bigger corners can they really cover. These receivers it's not that easy when you're talking about having that cover the smaller she's the receivers. Can they get it done. I don't know I'm waiting for the time where it starts on the other way. Where receive or start seeing more of the smirk receivers. Going NC super tall corners when it went does that turn happen because everything went bay. And it's been going that way for a long time bigger faster stronger I mean that's what the sport's all about. Does it turn the other way hoping every it's never coming back healthy it is. Omaha you know because you look at the receivers now on the Julio Jones is an AJ green and Dez Bryant's all of these guys that are that are bigger guys that are really. Have transition into being able to run routes and run and I mean it seems like it's going to be you have slot receiver is that a smaller. But there are select few guys that actually can get outside and relocated them like Antonio Brown or just needs Smith Iraq. You know I'm so everybody's going bigger DBs are going bigger. So that's it sucks for these guys that are not since. And who I know the feeling. They don't 3055188550. To 550 is that number to call jumping in with us we just talk in drafts mock drafts percent allotment you can and all around. We'll also have Sam monster from pro football focus coming up at the top of the hour. We'll discuss some stuff with him with regard to the free agency moves not only here in buffalo. But around the league is well that's all coming up. Your brother John Murphy show isn't about NAPA Auto Parts from one bills drive this is Buffalo Bills radio. We're back with more of that John Murphy shill. Chris rally Donald Jones here on the John Murphy show fill in for Merck today as he gets a lifetime achievement award from a guy Kalish congrats to him. And we're talking draft we're talking mock draft I think it is a third round pick and MI draft we were talking about the three round my he had the Virginia Tech tight and Bucky Hodges. Going to the bills around 366257. Lot of people called an over grown. Wide receiver. So I don't know how much easier to offer in the blocking department kid ran force 57. At 66257. Passes for as. Movement as moment. If you can test the ball and he's a guy you're talking about you can line up outside you know and I would be surprised that they go. Tight end and in any of those first three rounds we've seen them be be linked to tight ends in the free agency market. And also to our south will rise surprised if you see tied in promote the board in those first. 8030550. We're gonna go to the phones now all start with mark in New Jersey. Mark wants to talk a little draft with a cellmark would you have Forrester. Napoleon market appear hold on to say that. Areas mark when he got force. I do in groups of your soccer guy and ordered by the let us just yet. I won't do it is Donald. On the Yankee the draft I remember last year McDermott they hit that you'll rookie corners down in Carolina after the whole Mormon all of I don't and they they were decimated factor they got shorted. I don't think he's gonna wanna deal with that again on. I'll also if you looked at their linebackers. There are also a lot there outside linebackers were also college ceased ease. Check on the Thomas Davis bogeys on will pull through like he talked about position versatility and flexibility of not I spoke. It's going to be hard in the trade back this year basic browns ultra factored back I don't think she wouldn't on to part with those in the context to restore the construction more later on with them. So I think the discount to take the best player and I hate to beat this horse but I think go to Howard going to be that player. And just one more thing Chris what do you think. Maternity like what do you think McDonald's and Wendy's says Monday through Saturday starts to and about lacking luster with the other the previous stops. But yeah I'm changes. Yeah and thanks for the call mark we appreciate it I think you know what we're talking about here is a daily. Accountability. And a daily approach that doesn't waiver. Because. It's Monday or just loss yesterday. Feel like you know really put it all in. And he wants a guy that. Is so passionate about this game. That come auto workers fought that come to work is something that guy looks forward to. So he might take a guy. You know it's kind of like college recruiting in anything about these foreign flights are players but it sounds like coach McDermott might take the four star guy. That sleeps breezy needs football rather than the ultra talented five star guy that never had to work harder Dana's life Casilla so talent. And I think. That's what he wants he wants. Guys with the blue collar nose to the grindstone mentality. Because he doesn't wanna have to babysit. A roster of 6162. Players you don't count your practice squad guys are 63 players. He is not to babysit people is supposed to be a professional there's certainly have to carry yourself and there's a certain approach you have to take in the NFL game. To be successful on Sunday I mean the margin. You know trying to cultivate an advantage in any small nook or cranny of this game. He's fought for. At every inch so if you have guys that are put everything into every day that you prepare for game on Sunday. Coach McDermott believes in probably a lot of other coaches do believe you're gonna win or have a greater chance of winning with that kind of uniform. Unilateral approach by everybody in your house. And I think he looks at it that is his mentality is mental breakdown is or mental make up is to. Eat sleep. Dream pink football all the time you know and especially in season might it comes late July or August when we get in the training camp. It's all football guys like offseason is offseason message timed it in Julien going vacations and stuff like that we're in season. I want you working every single day you know and and that's how he is I think that's what he wants his players to be so that's what he's talking about. And he does bring up a good point trading down is not going to be easy. Especially at the top ten and just knowing what it takes that the investment that it would take to get up there. Analog these teams know how deep is draftees. There are more than happy to sit down there at 192025. Knowing that there's going to be quality talent falling to them there that there are going to be more than happy to take off the board. So what gets them up to ten. The only thing that gets them up there is maybe if one of those quarterbacks that they love falls to ten. You know maybe Arizona at thirteen. Who has made it very clear Dane Albanian quarterback this is probably Carson Palmer's last season on NFL field. And they got a group somebody for the future. I could see Arizona trying to move up to ten LeapFrog Cleveland to twelve. Invited LT quarterback won first overall which all indications are that they won't. That's a team that I could seem moving up there they're only move in three spots they're probably not pain king's ransom. That's a team. But I think certain things have to happen and certain players have to fall. That take place 8030550. To join us for coming up on the other side of the top of the hour we've got Sam Dotson from pro football focus get a break down. Some of the rankings that he's put on the free agency moves across the NFL thus far including. Those all of the Buffalo Bills this is that John Murphy show presented by NAPA Auto Parts from one bills drive this is Buffalo Bills radio.
