Draft Scout Marcus Rivers News
06/04/12 - WR Marcus Rivers was waived by the Packers.
03/07/12 - Many college students experience sleepless nights before a big test. Many of the seniors on the football team experienced this when they had the biggest test of their careers on Tuesday. The Ralph Wilson Stadium Fieldhouse played host to Buffalo's annual pro day. The seniors displayed their skills in a series of drills, similar to the NFL combine to scouts from 10 NFL teams including the Bills, Patriots, and Saints. The highest rated prospect from this year's senior class was wide receiver Marcus Rivers. Rivers received second team All-Mid-American Conference honors this season and was recently invited to the NFL Super Regional Combine in Detroit at the end of the month. Rivers impressed the scouts at the workout and is expected to be contacted by multiple NFL teams. His impressive performance is something he has been working on for the last few months. "This day has been built up so much," Rivers said. "You have to bring your best. You can't have an off day. This is the only day in your career that you got to be at your best at all times because everybody is out here looking at you, [you're] showing how you act as a man and your character so you just got to come out here and give it a 100 percent." The 6-foot-5 receiver, who played for Lackawanna high school, chose to stay local and play for the Bulls. Many of his friends and family would love for him to play professionally in Buffalo but he is looking for any opportunity to get to the next level. "It's crazy, everybody wants me to get drafted by the Bills," Rivers said. "But it's whatever team [will take me], I'm blessed. I just [want to] go out and get picked up by one team or another. Only one team has to like you, so I'm just out here, enjoying the moment." - Bryan Feiler, University at Buffalo The Spectrum
