Bills Draft Rumors: Charley Casserly Says Buffalo Targeting Ryan Tannehill

In a Tuesday evening appearance on NFL Network, former Houston Texans GM Charley Casserly reported - citing a well-placed source - that the Buffalo Bills are so high on Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill that they'd take him with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft were he to be available.

At least, that's what we hear. We've yet to see it at NFL.com, and the best link we can find is WGR 550's Howard Simon referencing it on his Twitter feed.

Clearly, this is a bold report - the boldest report we've seen yet about the Bills this April, in fact. By far. GM Buddy Nix has talked up taking "the next step" and making a playoff push this year; Casserly's report seems to indicate that the Bills are targeting a player in Round 1 that may not play a down this coming year. Or the year after that, for that matter.

The report also contradicts another Tuesday evening report - this one from WGR 550's Joe Buscaglia - citing a source saying that the Bills have their sights set on Alabama safety Mark Barron and South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore with the pick, with Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly also a factor. That report does not mention Tannehill. The lesson here: the Bills love everybody!
