Five things the Bills will do this offseason : Buffalo Sports Daily
"Some maneuvers will have to play themselves out, but I’ve come up with a list of five things you can count on the Bills doing for sure. * Find a right tackle in free agency * Find a second wide receiver in free agency * Sign as much defensive depth in free agency as possible * Draft a left tackle with their first pick * Draft a nose tackle with their second pick"

Playing Bills GM- Volume V (Part 1) : Buffalo Sports Daily
Joe Pinzone continues his dream Bills offseason by signing some defensive free agents. He signs RFA 3-4 DE Marcus Spears from the Cowboys, sending them a third rounder, and UFA ILB Larry Foote to man the spot next to Paul Posluszny. He leaves Kawika Mitchell on the outside so his surgically repaired leg doesn't have to take the pounding.

"Along with the announced departure of Josh Reed, the Bills receiving corp will get a makeover. James Hardy would be the favorite to start opposite Lee Evans, although a veteran free agent receiver would make sense to ease the transition. Steve Johnson should also be in the mix to start, or play the slot. Don’t forget Roscoe Parrish, if Gailey can figure out a way to use him correctly."

BillBoard: Fordham's sleeper QB

"John Skelton is a sleeper quarterback prospect in the 2010 NFL Draft who started for 3 1-2 years at Fordham. He's a 6-6, 243-pounder who grew up in Texas but got no Division I scholarship offers. His size makes him intriguing. He was regarded by draftniks as anywhere from a fourth to sixth round prospect at the end of the college season."

"Some people are saying I'm cocky. I'm arrogant, I'm not a good leader, I'm not a good teammate," Clausen said. "The people who are out there saying those things really don't know me as a person. I'm a humble kid. I love having fun with my teammates. I have guys over to my house whether they're offensive or defensive guys, go in during days off, watch a lot of film with the receivers. During the offseason, I have a bunch of my guys come out to work out with me, stay at my house with my family.

Tackles should be available for Bills in draft : Buffalo Bills : The Buffalo News
The Buffalo Bills have a good chance to get help at offensive tackle in the first round of the NFL draft, if that's the position they choose to address.

"I guess that depends on 'Are you changing coverages or is it just the front you are changing?'" Ryan said Saturday at the NFL scouting combine in Lucas Oil Stadium. "There are several different versions of a 3-4. But it depends on your style. If the coverages are staying the same, it probably is not as big of a change as what you might think." Ryan then went on to explain the important of a two-gap NT in the scheme.
