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.
