I cannot believe I am going to say this, but here it goes: I agree with Ron Jaworski. Whew! It feels good to get that monkey off my back. Jaws recently came out with his quarterback ranking and has Blake Bortles as his top signal caller. Although I agree with this assessment, it is his choice for the second spot that may have ruffled some feathers. Zach Mettenberger fills his second spot and I could not agree more.
Mettenberger is coming off an ACL injury and could slide down draft boards, but do not count on it. He is big and comparisons to Joe Flacco are not unfounded. It will take one team to look past the injury to see how this guy can be a great quarterback in this league.
I have stated in the past how I would love to see the Bills grab this guy. My hope was in the third round, but now I don’t think he will last that long. I can see the Cleveland Browns grabbing him at #26 or even the Broncos at #31.
The Bills have stated that they are happy with EJ Manuel, Thad Lewis, Jeff Tuel and Dennis Dixon. This could be grandstanding or it could be the truth. It is pre-draft time and you really cannot believe too much coming out of the mouths of GMs and coaches. Who would have thought the Bills had their eye on EJ Manuel last April? These are deceptive times.
What say you Buffalo? Are there too many other needs or is Mettenberger a good fit? Jaws likes him and so do I, but how much is he worth? Second round? Third round?
