The Buffalo Bills hit nearly all their marks and filled nearly every need they had going into the 2016 season especially with Reggie Ragland in the second round, which the Bills traded their original 2nd round pick and two fourth round picks to move up to get him. Ragland is undoubtedly one of the, if not the top linebacker prospect.
Their first round selection, Shaq Lawson, the 19th overall selection and Ragland give them two players that will make an immediate impact on the team.
“We had some holes. We had to make it over. If we didn’t, we’d be going into the season with nobody,” GM Doug Whaley said. “And we’re very excited with how we filled those holes.”

Leodis McKelvin must have felt like he was in an episode of The Twilight Zone as he once again found himself repeating a huge mistake he last made against the New England Patriots the last time they played MNF in 2008. Back then, McKelvin fumbled a kick return, this time it was a punt return that cost three points in a 20-13 loss.
“It’s football,” McKelvin said. “Things happen. S— happens. I guess it just happened to me at this place. Luck of the draw.”
At the end of this game, the Bills were driving and running a two minute drill and quarterback Tyrod Taylor (20-36 for 233) hit WR Sammy Watkins who rolled out of bounds with two seconds left on the clock – enough time for an unlikely Hail Mary pass completion. The referee, however, allowed the clock to continue to run citing that Watkins “gave himself up.”
“What we had as far as the last play with Buffalo’s reception was that the receiver gave himself up voluntarily in the field of play. When that occurs and we deem that the runner, which he would have been after he maintained possession after his reception, he was now a runner, had given himself up in the field of play,” Referee Gene Steratore told a pool reporter

Former Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan saw something special when he drafted Ik Enemkpali in the sixth round of the 2014 draft. After playing with the team for a year, the coaching staff thought he was a good enough teammate before to take a chance on him again.
“We all know what happened and things like that,” Ryan said. “Obviously, it was a terrible thing that happened. But IK made a mistake, there’s no question about that. But instead of listening to this person, that person or whatever — we had IK last year. A lot of us were around IK, and he was a good teammate.”
While the league may still take action against Enemkpali under the leagues Personal Conduct Policy, Ryan is happy the franchise is allowing him to make the decision.
“I think [owner Terry Pegula] has confidence in our beliefs, and in this case, Doug [GM Doug Whaley] is showing a lot of faith in me as well,” Ryan said. “That we specifically, guys that have been with IK, believe that he can be successful here.”
