Happening March 4th.  I assume it's not a public event.  Mack is in.  The rest of the field TBA.

I thought this was going to be about how Ralph and the Bills were too cheap to send anyone there to watch it..................

Buffalo airport should be abuzz with scouts and GMs. Go Kahlil. Maybe Neutz and Oliver get a good look as well.

And their times are usually a bit more inflated than at the combine

Olivier will get attention from a lot of teams. If he doesn't get a good look, something is wrong with the league.

I would argue it's also a more comfortable environment.  Not sleep deprived.  Not having to worry about scheduling and interviews.  I'm not saying numbers don't get inflated, but I'm sure some prospects actually perform better.

I'm surprised he didn't get a Combine invite.

I agree - I just meant that because of Mack's projection toward top 10 or higher, teams may send more total guys or a GM to Buffalo instead of just a random scout, giving him more exposure.

Exatly.  Why would teams travel to see the same thing again a week later?

To see if the times will be different?  How much different can they be?  And so what if they are?

Because more players from the college will be there. UB only had one player in Indy. How else are they going to know anything about the UDFAs?

I was referring to LB only.  But as to your point, there ar 124 FBS schools.  Do team reps go to school all pro days?
