INDIANAPOLIS (WIVB) - The part of the NFL Combine most of us never get to see involves what goes on during player interviews.
Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone says it's a vital part of the evaluation process, but they only get 15 minutes with each prospect on their list.
"Really what we want to do, we want the player to tell us what's going on here, what's this play, and really start describing what he's thinking," said Marrone. "Really find out, from a football standpoint, maybe a little about instinct, how he's able to communicate... those are the things we're trying to find out in a 15 minute block of time, which is diffcult."
Marrone and the Bills staff started conducting interviews with prospects Thursday night in Indianapolis.
