Now that the disaster that was called professional hockey is finished in Buffalo (although one could argue it was finished in November), Buffalo sports junkies can now focus on the NFL draft. My focus is on the quarterback position.
I have read all kinds of articles on the quarterbacks in Buffalo. Items from the Bills do not have a true starter to where EJ Manuel would rank in the 2014 draft. Although I am not ready to throw EJ Manuel under the bus, I am concerned that the brain trust seems to be ignoring the position during the free agent period. Could they just be playing coy with us or do they truly believe that this part of the roster is complete? Frankly, at this time of the year I tend to not believe anything coming out of any NFL front office.
An interesting comment came from Peter King and his MMQB column in that quarterback needy teams will be passing on the position until the second round. His reasoning is there are too many other good players to merit taking one of the quarterbacks on the radar. Could this be a blessing at the number nine pick? This Buffalo Bills could have the opportunity to take the best quarterback in the draft. Could this actually happen? If it did who would you select to lead the football team in Buffalo?
