Buffalo Bills hosted local pro day Friday featuring Tyree Jackson, UB prospects

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

On Friday, the Buffalo Bills held a local pro day, where Western New York-based draft-eligible players could show off their stuff to the hometown pro team. Players from local college football teams are invited as well as players who grew up locally but played college football elsewhere.

The headliner was University at Buffalo Bulls quarterback Tyree Jackson. The big-bodied quarterback has all the physical tools to be a successful NFL quarterback but is labeled as a project by NFL scouts.

Also in town was wide receiver Anthony Johnson. While he wasn’t expected to attend the pro day, WIVB spoke with him at Buffalo’s Spring Game and reported he did participate. He’s expected to go on Day 3 of the draft.

Hamburg native and quarterback prospect Jake Dolegala was in attendance. The Central Connecticut quarterback has all the physical gifts and could sneak into the back end of the draft.

Defensive end Chuck Harris and cornerback Cam Lewis also were also expected to take part in the pro day, according to The Buffalo News.
