Brown has a live arm – Inside The Bills
"Bills seventh-round pick Levi Brown put his abilities on display in the morning practice Friday and it’s evident he has a live arm."

McKelvin rolling – Inside The Bills
"The cornerback was back on the field off his fibula injury from last year for the first time Friday and has two INTs on the day."

Spiller speed is obvious – Inside The Bills
"Spiller’s ability to sharply cut away from traffic or zip through a hole was more impressive in person than it was on tape. Suffice to say it’s going to be fun watching this guy come September. And like I said, TV doesn’t do him justice."

BillBoard: UB's Roosevelt looks good
"Being an undrafted rookie, Naaman Roosevelt understands the importance of getting the coaches' attention immediately. He did just that with a good first day at the Buffalo Bills' minicamp for rookies as well as first- and second-year players."

"We introduce a certain base, but we put in more than some teams might put in because I would like to challenge these guys mentally," he said after the Friday morning workout. "That's part of the process, too. How much can they retain from the classroom to the field? And that's one of the challenges that I've given these guys. It's incumbent upon them to go back at night and not just flip on the TV or go to a movie but to spend time in the playbook."

"I'm not gonna lie, I did watch the draft," Brohm said. "I've watched it for probably the last five years, so it's nothing new for me to watch it. I'm a huge football fan. And I had a personal interest in what was going to happen. So I definitely watched it."

"It's different in that we don't have a guy like (Rodgers) here, it's an open competition and we're battling to be the No. 1 guy instead of the No. 2 guy," said Brian Brohm

"There's not a first or a third right now," said Chan Gailey. "That's the situation. We're going to go to camp with it being an open deal and if you say that then it's got to be. You can't just say it and then get to camp and you've already got your mind made up or you stack it up a different way. To me, anybody's got a chance to win the job right now. And that's really the way it is. It's not just lip service."

"I don’t feel any pressure," C.J. Spiller said after the morning workout. "There are a lot of guys that went in the first round on this team. The main thing is just coming in and learning. Like I said earlier, I think pressure is when you are unprepared. I did a great job last night preparing for today, learning what is going on."

"Definitely I am. I think what coach says is what he's going to do... so it's a great opportunity for me. I just have to focus and myself and be the best player that I can be and not really worry about how the other guys are doing."
