Our morning 833 here on WGR Howard's off today of about chip in for him. Matthew L producing I'm Jeremy White joining us on the AT&T hotline is. Jim models built director of player personnel Jim good morning Jeremy and sell here on WG aria. Morning Brodeur doing all right doing all right how's this time a year for users the best time of year. Are my favorite time here. At the very in my office Watson offensive tackle from Penn State right now who's who's down the Senior Bowl so. Like cut him off with just watching tape at this point. Are you are you focusing on line specifically write about an hour's is they're up is their set. We lose them so they're Jim. We lost and I think he must of really like something out that tape and he had to go run to Doug Whaley you know he cut in opposite guys I gotta go tie it. I'll tell my boss about this we did that just a moment as you know product or is that it was an estimates Moffitt of one including one called. Late in Tomlinson yes lake and Tomlinson had what I think is the best week of senior ball practice from everybody that it's. You know covers. This kind of stuff was out there and talked about it so he. Lake in tablets and by the way from duke very Smart young man. Or the bills drafted ross' cock grow out of duke. So you know they have a little bit of they they've been down that they've seen them would not surprise me whatsoever to see this young man on their radar in the early rounds. Second round your button he's talked about maybe is a date to guide right stuff to be used to date to I've got to back Jimmie there. Prom their rights are at that where I was asked about offensive line you mentioned a tackle from Penn State and Selma I just mentioned a lake in Tomlinson the guard from. Duke are you spending more time on the offensive line is there is there an order that you go through is that whatever tapes on top is what you watch Heidi how are you sift through all of these prospects. Walked out to a great job of in the vandalizing grade and then that that we thought wailing nine held this year we can. Start evaluating guys they stopped their grades. As far as who we need to look at again like if you're right policy and had a great week practiced down there from duke. We got what today's Smith from Penn State's big guy. So you we watch every position not just offense line will will evaluate every position the same as if we need every position. We had a discussion a little earlier in the show about. Forecasting an entire class and he'd be great tells gives an answer on this how easy is it to forecast an entire class a year out. Two years out like at what stage. Do you know if vote of a pool of players he's gonna be a strong pool or would you be able to look. Give a good opinion on the 2016 draft class today or or is that not something you don't wait later in the game. No we do we have on a called up left there's got to interpret what they do we've got the works for them and what they do is try to give a head start on. You know a year at a time. As far as you know what that's what the prospects look like especially the seniors. And then we just had a meeting with the book of service on the juniors and have just declared. So we're ahead of the game with with that service please just give us you know pointed in the right direction. When looking at. And overall draft class who will bring it back to this on the 2015 class where does the strengths lie in your manual positions. Are heavily stocked and stock well the top. You know how we say in this is my personal thing you know I think every draft is strong computer good evaluated every draft should be strong. Now I know everybody wants positions are names I do think often you know just from the little bit I've seen I think is a good offensive line Europe. I think it's a good defensive line draft. Defense to back draft so from what I've seen so far those positions stood out running back to pretty solid but I do I think every guess what you make of it as an evaluated. The position you didn't mention is quarterback conventional wisdom Jim says that this is not a very. Good quarterback draft you have the two guys the top we all know about with the marionette after that. Pretty much a clip including the next group to tear guys he saw. Down there at the senior bogey is trying to evaluate the quarterback class in the what you saw this week as well from that position. Sure you know and and everybody's human Quebec for us obviously could we only have two right now on the roster of these games are tools so. We are going to be doing our work on every quarterback anticipates strong are not strong. That's up to I mean hopefully we do our work can find somebody it's good there or maybe people aren't talking about since we don't pick that high. Down the senior bought up right petty but from Baylor looked great and from our state that has nice weeks. When it comes valuing your quarterback. Our art our team sometimes evaluating on different time lines thank you might give a guy gored in how how well he suited to come in right away. Or there might be another prospect who do you think has all the tools but he's gonna need to. Lost and again. Off. We'll try we'll try all of the attention return multiple tries to break every condemn as they are good questions now let's. Just what is the good cause sometimes ask the put the slight. So does every team do it differently because of where they are there organizational timeline yeah I'd like if you've got a guy do you think has first round talent. And is arms great everything is just really good but you have the feeling it's gonna take him two years to Lauren at all. Liked my drop into the third because some teams are drafting a quarterback that not today now got to start now the other teams are like yeah we like this you're gonna stash them. My guess is it does not Che mat question that's my guess is it does not at all change the grade. But it does change whether or not UTQ where you think you need to take with that point. Of your draft but it won't change the actual rate or the ranking that's my guest last Jimmer. You are about that Jimmer we're talking quarterbacks and you glad to have you back here. I thought that it actually grow talk quarterbacks the idea of time lines how much does that does that teams timeline affects a grade on a quarterback and then maybe where you'd you would take him and I guess the question asking is if you got a guy do you think his. Really good but he's I don't know more of a project or more raw you might think first round talent but third round pick is ever happened. No I think I think you have to apply that every position I don't think just quarterback I really do I think there's there's got whatever position it. You could say it would give all the ability to you know we think he's a year away well that's kind of how you value that's kind of how you see great players in general not just quarterback. When AJ manuals was was coming out you know that's a he's a player like this that initially many said he might need a little bit of time. And then he gets thrust into the starting role early on when you're when you're talking about a player of like that nature. Unique take EG in the first round that means that you believe he's first round talent no matter how long it takes him to get there that if people. Follows the career Iraqi should then he should be echo. No question nine like if they've echoes for every position if you take you got the first round I think you're saying. He should be coming in and starting or playing very soon. Welcome. Jim models built director of player personnel joining us here on WGR. With regard to the new. Structure of the organization you've got a a new head coach. How how does it go how result overall thing work where you know Rex Ryan's guides my probably gonna want to help on defense because it defensive guy. Doug Whaley of course is the GM you're the director of player personnel so how does that work. Inside the room with a all those voices trying to come to once election. Right it it's amazing how calm the process really it's gonna get started here soon but. You know I'm sure we're gonna meet with the go to here this week and we're and go over our roster and what we feel about it how they feel about it. And come token you know at least a decision on you know free agency. As far as who we're gonna attack there. And a draft by throat constrict the best player available. On offense or defense obviously everybody knows how high we were active defense this year but. You knock and that you know that's not gonna make you know it doesn't mean we're not gonna take somebody if we think they can help us. I read I saw I should say the interview did on the job or to show I'm video on Buffalo Bills dot com website at that was really interesting. Something you said about free agency you're really ahead of the game as far as soon as it starts you already have your guys ranked what does that process start as far as. Upcoming free agents when did you guys actually start putting together a board for who you may one attack and I wanna rank them. We do that all year long our pro scouting department Robb Hanrahan Gerald Dixon those guys are they're always watching the other free agents for other teams. All year long. So Beckett got a head start now though Willie myself will start looking at all there's got to they've already on the evaluated so we're way ahead of the game free agency will be ready for that. Should we expect a running back somewhere in the next here. And on a you know right didn't show your cards but it it would seem that the position itself might be when you guys would be looking at heavily. Well I think that you. And you're going off the rankings and all that you would think but you know we we still believe in our guys we have on the roster and and if they're the right back keeps saying if they're the right back that we like and he's available. I'm sure will explores. All the guys that don't vote. Which Columbia. And it won't hang my head and thanks immigration some sort of problem with this phone connection so thank you to Jim on possible director clippers in the same viewpoint so I'm done I'll tell you that Penn State tackle must be fry it up that phone line he's so hot he's so that's what it is do you think you'll take a running back. I do but I believe them that they like the guys they have. I believe this is what I think about the running.
