Why I Predicted Jasper To The Bills

  My sig for the past several months included the following: With pick #245 the Buffalo Bills select Michael Jasper (6'4" 395 lbs) Bethel University.

  I wish I could say it was due to a crystal ball, or some amazing prognostic talent. If either of those were true I'd get the lottery numbers, sharing with all my fellow Rumblers of course. I did not have an "in" with the Bills Front Office either.

  The real story is that my nephew C J and my son are his friends. C J went to High School with Jasper, and my son was on the football team of one of the schools that played C J & Jaspers team every year, both in Wilson County just east of Nashville, TN. Currently they work out together off and on.

  My son, Ken, is an Army Reservist currently attending MTSU. An avid Buffalo Bills fan (chip off the old block). He and C J filled me in on Mr Jasper.

  "Great guy, tireless worker, listens and uses all the instructions from some former NFL players. Plays hurt, plays to the whistle, doesn't tire (that big who would have thought he might not need a play or two off) and pushes his teammates on the field and in the weight room."

  Buddy Nix stated he wanted to get "bigger" players, Michael Jasper is bigger than most people in the world. Seemed like a good fit. I was told that members of the Bills organization were in touch with him several times these past few months, and that he was hoping the Bills would draft him.

  Given the preferences of Buddy Nix, Michael Jaspers' size and desire to be a Buffalo Bill, and my tenuous connection to both parties, I felt obligated to provide some free advertising for him in my sig.

  He is a very devout Christian. Had a scholarship at Ole Miss, wanted something different. Transferred to MTSU, then UT-Martin before finding his match at a Christian-based school, Bethel University. Some may not like his multiple transfers, but I think finding a school that mirrored his belief system shows he has dedication and loyalty.

  One more piece of information: Michael Jasper played High School football on the same team as Levi Brown. May want to keep that in mind before bashing Levi. Just kidding (maybe) about that.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
