The Bills' rookie mini-camp resumed today with day two of practices, and there were more events that were of particular interest to many Bills fans. CB has posted his Day 2 notes at the main site. The team wraps up the mini-camp tomorrow. On to the more interesting tidbits of the day:
I think that the majority of this emphasis, however, is to get a look at Wright as a receiver. The team knows what they have in Anthony Thomas, and they have a very good idea of what they have in Lynch; what exactly does Wright bring to the table in terms of his skills and how they fit this system? They obviously know he has complementary skills to those of Lynch's; how much of this stuff can he do on his own? I'm excited about this kid; I think that the coaches are taking a long look at him in this camp to see if he can push the A-Train for the #2 role.
This Scott Mayle kid seems like an interesting prospect to me. He's not a very big guy (6'1", 175) but his speed makes him an intriguing kid. At a minimum, I can see him pushing guys like George Wilson; he has some competition even from his fellow UDFA's in Jemalle Cornelius, Johnny Quinn and Aaron Brown, however.
This could be a setback for Lewis, an UDFA who many Bills fans feel can push for a roster spot. The team's neglect of the cornerback position in the draft could leave the door open for Lewis or fellow UDFA Duane Coleman to land a spot on the final roster; early injuries could hurt Lewis' chances. Hope he's able to practice tomorrow.
CB is doing a great job of covering this camp, per usual. The final practices are tomorrow; I'll have my thoughts on those notes when they're made available. Go Bills!
