NFL Draft Rumors: Jake Matthews meets with Buffalo Bills, Atlanta Falcons

The Buffalo Bills are looking at what they can do to improve their team in the draft this yea and this seems to include Texas A&M offensive tackle Jake Matthews in their plans. While Matthews is being viewed as a high-end prospect, the Bills are calling him in for a workout and are showing interest in possibly drafting him this May.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Bills called Matthews in for a workout last week and the Atlanta Falcons are also showing an interest in making Matthews a top 10 pick.

 

If the Bills landed Matthews, it be a clear sign that they value E.J. Manuel’s protection more so than they do protecting the lead or getting him weapons. There are a number of things the Bills can do with their pick in the first-round and drafting a wide receiver or top defensive prospect are among the possibilities.

But Matthews offers something none of those potions can — security for E.J. Manuel and protection of his already questionable health.
