I was reading the Buffalo News this morning and came across this stat. There have been 191 quarterbacks drafted into the NFL since Jim Kelly retired and the Bills have taken just three of those.
Only the Dallas Cowboys, who have taken two, have drafted fewer quarterbacks over that time.
J.P. Losman, Trent Edwards and Levi Brown. are the three dubious picks.
Tonight will the Bills use the 8th overall pick on a franchise qb?
You have WVU's Geno Smith, Florida State's E.J. Manuel, USC's Matt Barkley and SU's Ryan Nassib. The draft is alll about value. I believe the only qb worthy of selection at 8th is Smith. I like Manuel, Barkley and Nassib, but not at eight.
Two years ago the Bills passed over quarterbacks Andy Dalton and Colin Kaepernick. Frustrating. This current adminstration thought Ryan Fitzpatrick was the future. Their crediblity on qb's is not the best.
The Bills have never used their first pick in the NFL Draft on a quarterback. Ideally, I would love for the Bills to trade down if possible, compile more picks and choose a qb late in the first or early in the second round.
