The Buffalo Bills added some competition this offseason http://www.thebillslockerroom.com/authentic-ryan-groy-jersey , but Ryan Groy has won the center job over Russell Bodine head coach Sean McDermott announced on Monday. Groy takes over for longtime Bills center Eric Wood, who was forced to retire this offseason following discovery of a spinal issue in his neck.Groy was an undrafted free agent for the Chicago Bears in 2014 and spent two months on their practice squad before being elevated to the active roster that November. He was traded to the New England Patriots the following August but was hurt during the preseason and released. After spending a couple weeks of the 2015 season on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad, he was signed by the Bills. In 2016, he stepped in for an injured Wood to start the final seven games of the season and earn a hefty pay increase as a restricted free agent. The Los Angeles Rams signed him to an offer sheet which was matched by Buffalo during the 2017 offseason.This offseason, Buffalo added four-year starter Russell Bodine, formerly of the Cincinnati Bengals. While he wasn’t great in Cincy, he was serviceable and dependable. The pair alternated as the starting center throughout camp and the preseason.The first center-quarterback combo of training camp was Nathan Peterman and Ryan Groy. Both men won their respective jobs.Groy will be an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the 2018 season. It’s completely understandable that college prospects have begun a trend of skipping their Bowl games. There, I said it. The risk of injury is always there, sure Eddie Yarbrough Jerseys 2019 , but players also run the risk of playing poorly in front of a national audience and hurting their draft stock in the process. Every year come Bowl season, certain players can’t deal with the increase in competition and get exposed as “overrated” or “over-hyped” pro prospects. That’s essentially what happened to these five prospects.DT Jerry Tillery (Notre Dame)Tillery has been the most-hyped senior prospect at defensive tackle, and if the Fighting Irish were going to pull off an upset against Clemson they needed Tillery to have a monster game. Unfortunately, Tillery exited the game with zero statistics—not even a tackle—to his name. Worst of all, his egregious roughing-the-passer penalty late in the second quarter allowed Tigers quarterback Trevor Lawrence to throw a miraculous touchdown pass with nine seconds left in the half, putting his team up 23 to 3. Tillery did manage to block an extra point though, so there’s that.LB Christian Miller (Alabama)It’s tough to label a player a “loser” for getting injured, but this isn’t the first time for the senior linebacker. After coming back from a torn bicep last season, Miller was hoping to put the “injury-prone” label behind him. But early on in the game against Oklahoma White Jordan Mills Jerseys , after having sacked Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray, Miller went down with a hamstring injury. He is now questionable for the College Football Championship. A player of Miller’s talent deserves to be drafted in the second round, but injury concerns may push him down to the third round or even Day 3 of the draft.OG Dru Samia (Oklahoma)Going against the consensus best defensive tackle in the country was never going to be easy for Samia, but he was manhandled by Alabama’s Quinnen Williams all night. Samia just could not keep up with Williams’s quickness off the snap and wasn’t prepared to deal with the sophomore pass rush repertoire. Some scouts and front-office members may give him a pass for this game but, regardless, it’s not a good look for the senior guard. RB LJ Scott (Michigan State)For a player that’s 6’1”, 225 pounds, it sure was easy for the Oregon Ducks’ linebackers to bring him down. The Ducks completely shut down the Spartans’ running game, and particularly Scott Jordan Mills Jerseys 2019 , in the Redbox Bowl. Scott finished the day with 84 yards on 24 attempts, with his longest run a 13-yard gain. When evaluators watch this tape, they won’t be impressed with the senior’s ability to run through tackles or avoid defenders in tight windows. Scott is a lower round prospect at this point who will need to spend the off-season shedding the dreaded “JAG” label.QB Shea Patterson (Michigan)While the junior transfer has announced that he’s returning to Michigan, he’ll have to spend the 2019 season hoping to rehabilitate his image after a poor performance in the Peach Bowl. While he made some nice throws, particularly early in the game, his pocket presence and decision-making while under pressure was Patterson’s undoing against Florida. The Gators absolutely flummoxed him and his offensive line with exotic blitzes throughout the game. His two interceptions in the second half sank any chance of coming back and making it a game. Patterson has much to work on in the off-season.
