Report: Bills "appear interested" in top overall pick



(WGR 550) -- On the precipice of the start of April, get ready for NFL Draft rumors to start flying in every which way. Still with a few days to go in March, the newest Buffalo Bills related report is quite stark.

According to Dan Pompei of Bleacher Report, the Houston Texans are in the hunt to move down from the top overall selection and acquire more picks. Sources to Pompei, who has been a respected football writer for many years, have said that the Bills might be a potential suitor for the top choice.

Pompei writes:

"Word from the NFL meetings is the Texans are trying hard to deal the first pick in the draft. They want to move down and acquire extra selections. Sources say they might have a trade partner in the Bills, who appear interested in moving up. It is unclear who the Bills would want in a trade-up scenario. Some believe they would move up for a quarterback. They also could make good use of an offensive tackle such as Greg Robinson. And it would be something to see them pair Mario Williams with either Jadeveon Clowney or Khalil Mack."

The Bills currently own the ninth overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Historically speaking, a move up the draft that far to the top overall selection would take multiple first round picks and likely additional selections throughout the draft.

Do EJ Manuel's performances at training camp matter at all?
  Yes. If he's going to be better in year 2, it starts now
  No. I wouldn't start evaluating him until the pre-season games
