Bills super fan Ezra Castro, aka Pancho Billa, had been invited to make the team’s third-round NFL Draft pick in person Friday night in Nashville.
Castro was on the stage via FaceTime through the phone of former Bills safety Coy Wire, who made the selection.
Castro also was involved in calling in the Bills’ first-round pick to Nashville on a three-way call with Bills GM Brandon Beane on Thursday night.
Castro learned Thursday morning he was going into hospice care in the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. He is staying there to receive care and support due to the stage four cancer he has battled for 18 months, cancer that began as a mass around his spine and then invaded his liver and his lungs.
Here is video posted on the Bills’ Twitter feed of Wire and Castro making the selection of Florida Atlantic running back Devin Singletary.
