Clark Judge of CBS Sports came away from Training Camp with this impression of the Bills' promising young OT: "Just my opinion, but backup tackle Demetrius Bell could be the next Jason Peters with Buffalo. A seventh-round pick in 2008, Bell is raw, talented, and scary good. He could serve as a swing tackle this season and has been taking turns in camp at guard. But you can book this: The guy will push for a starting job before long. He is too good to keep down. The Bills absolutely love him and think he has the ability to make it big. Bell is the son of former NBA great Karl Malone."

Bell may be needed sooner rather than later. Yesterday the Bills did their first two-minute drill at practice, with the offense starting on its own 35 yard line and needing a FG to "win the game." The result: after two sacks in four plays and some additional stops by the defense, the offense went four-and-out, ending up on its own 24 yard line. It was pathetic, and it all had to do with a terrible performance by the o-line. I know it's early, and Eric Wood hadn't even arrived yet, but what happened in that drill is still worrisome to anyone willing to be realistic. Do not be surprised if there is more tinkering with the o-line than most people expect over the coming three or four weeks. I don't think anything is set in stone yet -- including the role that Demetrius Bell will play this year.
