Marshawn Lynch and Fred Jackson did not do so well in short yardage situations last year. Think it may have something to do with the offensive line?

Free Agency
Bills Should Say No To "Flo" : Buffalo Sports Daily

"The fit only seems natural. Adams is a five-time Pro Bowler and a household name league-wide, and it doesn’t take an expert to realize Buffalo is in dire need of talent at left tackle. Having said that, there’s no way the Bills should pursue him."

Raiders Blog and Q&A: Raiders re-sign OL Walker
"Maintaining the theme of the offseason that they liked what they had in-house last season, the Raiders on Friday re-signed offensive lineman Langston Walker, a former second-round draft pick out of Cal."

The real meaning behind all those words | National Football Post
Chad Jackson, former highly touted second-round pick of the Patriots, on signing with the Bills: "The Bills had been looking at me for a while, and I had the opportunity to come up and get a workout in and they obviously liked what they saw." What that really means: "It’s a minimum contract in Buffalo, but hey, that’s all that’s out there for me!"

2010 mock draft, take three |
"9. Bills: Dan Williams, defensive tackle, Tennessee - Buffalo's installation of a 3-4 defense won't work without a two-gapping nose tackle to clog the middle and keep offensive guards from taking Paul Posluszny and Andra Davis out of plays. Williams has Vince Wilfork-type potential at 6'2/330 with plenty of quicks and power."

Tony Dungy prefers Colt McCoy over Sam Bradford and Tim Tebow - Stampede Blue
"In a nutshell, dungy makes it clear that if he were a general manger, he'd take Colt McCoy over Tim Tebow or Sam Bradford. Watch the video to see Dungy's reasons why."

I bet that the teams interested in Terrence Cody will have someone visit him as close to the draft as possible to get a current weight

Bulaga coming to Bills in latest News' mock draft : Buffalo Bills : The Buffalo News
With both QBs off the board in the top four picks, the Bills take the fourth offensive tackle in the next five. Russell Okung goes to the Chiefs, Trent Williams to the Seahawks, Bruce Campbell to the Raiders after the Browns take S Eric Berry, and finally the Bills take Bryan Bulaga over Anthony Davis (who falls to the 49s at 13).

Don’t believe everything you hear : Joe Pinzone : Buffalo Sports Daily
"Again, why would the Patriots show any interest in Tebow? My thinking, and I’m just speculating here, is that they want the Bills to panic and think to themselves, 'Oh s$#t, the Patriots want Tebow and if we let him pass us at the 41st pick, they are going to draft him with one of their three 2nd round picks.'"

2010 Mock NFL Draft 2.0: Round 1 | Bleacher Report
9. Buffalo Bills–Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame– One of the most glaring holes the Bills have had since Jim Kelly left has been quarterback. There seems to be a huge courting effort for Tim Tebow, but I have trouble seeing the Bills pass if Clausen gets down to here.

Grading the latest seven rounder - Mocking The Draft
Mocking Dan grades Uz's seven round mock draft as part of the community drat from MTD. "Getting Bradford with the No. 9 pick would be a great pickup for Buffalo. Where I think this draft falters some is the next three picks. All solid players, but maybe a little early for each. The other surprising choice was Canfield. Why two rookie quarterbacks?"

Just took part in an expert Mock Draft for ESPN1230 in Lehigh Valley. Both Bulaga and Clausen were still on the board. I took Clausen forBUF

Twitter / Chris Mortensen
Clausen does have very good game film from 2009 in a Pro style offense. Again, teams like him ....but love? Can't find one...yet
