this whole video made me smile, especially when the secretary greeted him.

I checked to see if this had been posted already, sorry if i missed it.

Also sorry for a separate thread but figured this warranted it...

That was a fantastic video. Thanks Poojer. He appears to be a humble young man and I am even more excited to see him play. Great going Bills!!!!

Thank you for that Poojer. Hadn't seen it yet. Gets me so pumped up for this season.

Few things of note: at first, while at the draft, he said he "was really hoping it was Buffalo"

The fact that Brice Smith is his Godfather.
It'll actually be a big plus for our defense. If imagine that Beuce will be at many more games than he has been in recent years. That gives us Kelly, Thurman, and Bruce always around this team. Can only mean good things.

He seems to 'have it all.'  Physical skills, humility, respectful, well spoken etc.  I can't wait to cheer for the guy.

Few hours??? That video was only 7 minutes long.  WTF.  I wanted to know if he ended up catching the sabres game that night or not.

All kidding aside, still really like the pick and the video.

God I hope this kid works out. Extremely likable, and crazy physical tools.

Awesome video. I too loved the secretary's greeting. It was great seeing Jim Kelly down there with him, as well.

By the way, Russ Brandon looks like a 16-year old kid in that video.

EJ impressed the team by throwing well in awful weather during workout. That's good news.

That was great. Obviously we all hope he turns out to be a player on the field, and that's pretty much all that matters. Win games, get in the playoffs, go for the Super Bowl and win it. But man, if he succeeds, what a face of the franchise this guy could be.

The one takeaway I had from this video is, holy moly, he is HUGE. He dwarfed Kelly and Marrone, who are pretty big guys.

I know it is blind Bills optimism...but adding this guy to our team, which, need I remind you, has yet to be defeated this year, looks fantastic...everytime I see him interviewed I like him more...September can't come fast enough...

Buddy's bro hug needs work. He had the "Did I just get violated?" look on his face.

This is so true.  I totally agree with this.  He seems like a great kid.

One other thing... this kid is a BIG BOY! He's bigger than Werner, a DE, and almost too big for that hallway!

I could see him slap a few DE's/LB's away with a "what?? you serious?? get off me man!"...well, maybe not, but a guy can wish.

Big, fast, agile, strong, intelligent, decent arm...all we need is some coaching and we might just have ourselves a QB for more than 2 years.
