Inside The Bills | The key factor for Bills with Davis

"Davis suffered a torn Achilles tendon last season in Week 7 and was placed on injured reserve. Recovery time is typically a year, which would bring him to mid-October 2013 before he gets on the field. Davis told NFL Network last week that he’s "a little bit" ahead of schedule for what it’s worth."

Pro Football Focus has the Bills taking center John Sullivan, who was originally selected by the Minnesota Vikings in the sixth round. Gross.

Taking a center at No. 11 overall seems like bad draft strategy, even with the tire fire that was the Bills' interior offensive line at the time. Here's your Rumblings draft recap from that year.
