On the latest episode of Billieve: A Buffalo Bills Fan Podcast, host John Boccacino recaps rookie minicamp, highlights potential impact undrafted free agents, and celebrates the life of beloved Buffalo Bills’ super fan Ezra Castro, better known as Pancho Billa.

For Buffalo’s eight-person draft class and eight undrafted rookie free agents, rookie minicamp was the first opportunity to showcase their skills as members of the Buffalo Bills. Several rookies stood out during rookie minicamp, including defensive tackle Ed Oliver, offensive lineman Cody Ford, tight end Tommy Sweeney, quarterback Tyree Jackson, wide receivers David Sills V and Duke Williams, and running back Christian Wade.

Speaking of undrafted rookie free agents, Boccacino gave his thoughts on those players who could emerge into this year’s version of wide receiver Robert Foster and cornerback Levi Wallace—players who went undrafted but made huge contributions to the Bills in 2018.

After addressing the crowded tight end position—which got more crowded with the signing of former Bill Lee Smith to a three-year deal—Boccacino spent the last portion of the Billieve Podcast paying tribute to Pancho Billa, who lost his battle with pancreatic cancer this week.

What do you think, Bills fans? Who do you feel will standout among the eight undrafted free agents? Who will emerge as Buffalo’s best tight end options?
