With the combine underway and late in the week, we sit here waiting and trying to bring an analysis on what the Buffalo Bills might do with their 8th overall pick in this years draft less than 2 months away and with free agency just around the corner.
Mike Mayock with the NFL network looks at the Risk/Reward of taking a top 10 QB in this years draft.
Mike believes that their could be as much as three QB going in the first round, but within his mock draft he does not have a single one leaving within his top 20.
Two of the top QB’s being Geno Smith and Barkley, Mayock has projected to go between the 20-32 range, which is more the range that he would feel comfortable to in taking them.
Mayock goes on to say for the Bills…
“There are going to be people that say Buffalo should take a quarterback at eight regardless of what the quote value is,” he said. “With Geno Smith I see flashes of everything you want in a top 10 quarterback. I see a lot more inconsistency than those flashes. There’s a real risk-reward scenario there. That’s a long way of saying a lot of people are going to be talking about quarterbacks.”
I personally think that Buffalo needs to look at a defensive pick to fill a hole there and not to reach on the uncertainty of a 1st round top 10 QB pick. Wait for the second and pick one that falls more in the range of possibilities and one that will fit the system of Marrone and his Offensive staff. With Travaris Jackson being re-signed, this provides a little stability in the QB area but a need is still there but not as big as a top 10 uncertain pick. But then again there is that Risk/Reward.
