Eric Washington was sold on Gregory Rousseau well before the Bills selected the defensive end with the 30th overall pick during the NFL Draft in April.
"I would love to work with you," the Bills defensive line coach told Rousseau during a pre-draft Zoom call. "This is as good of an interview as I've done in several years."
Washington's interview with Rousseau will be among the behind-the-scenes moments featured in the latest installment of "Buffalo Bills: Embedded," premiering on the team's YouTube Channel this Thursday, May 20, at 7 p.m. The episode is presented by Toyota.
The episode, titled "2021 NFL Draft: Sizing Up," gives fans a look inside the Bills front office throughout the draft process, including film study with assistant general manager Joe Schoen and a trip to Notre Dame's pro day with director of college scouting Terrance Gray.
The episode also takes fans inside the war room throughout the draft, highlighting the emotions from general manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott as the Bills added size to their front lines with selections like Rousseau, defensive end Boogie Basham, and offensive tackles Spencer Brown and Tommy Doyle.
The episode can be found following its premiere both on BuffaloBills.com and on the Bills Mobile App, presented by M&T Bank.
