Inside The Bills | Kiper: Nassib has been skyrocketing

"Nassib has been skyrocketing all year," said Kiper. "He’s right now in the second round discussion. That next tier beyond the top group that could end up being a second round pick. But a lot of people have high hopes for him."

The Buffalo Bills' website offers a great collection of stuff on individual players from the Senior Bowl yesterday. If you have an insatiable appetite for draft coverage, head over to the "Inside The Bills" blog and check it out, along with the videos on the main page from Mobile.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, Chris Kelsay, George Wilson, Brad Smith, and Terrence McGee round out this list.

Wilson's spot on the list is dubious, as is Fitzpatrick's. If they are going to make a decision with Fitzpatrick, it will come well before the draft - and with the Bearded One being the only signal caller currently under contract for 2013, it's hard to expect three new quarterbacks between the draft and free agency. Wilson still has value despite his declining skill set. The soon-to-be 32-year old has only one year at less than $2.5 million remaining on the books.

"It’s always an honor to represent your team and the city of Buffalo in the Pro Bowl," said Williams. "To be recognized by the fans, your peers and the coaches you play against means a lot. Our goal next year, as it is every season, is to still be competing at this time.

"Now that I’ve got this label I’ve got to take my game up and train even harder," said Spiller in reference to his offseason regimen. "I don’t need any motivation, because everybody is going to expect that out of me and I’m going to expect that out of myself as well."

"Now that I guess you can say that I can be labeled as a Pro Bowl player, I'm going to have to take my game up even another notch," Spiller said. "It depends on how many carries I get. I'm not going into the season looking for a certain amount. Once I sit down with the running-backs coach [Tyrone Wheatley] and Coach Marrone, that'll be discussed."

"My first couple years, they didn’t go according to my plans that I wanted. But this year it definitely paid off – the hard work I put in, the first time I got a chance to have a full NFL offseason.
