Since the start of the offeason there are several Quarterbacks who are lumped together as possibilities to be drafted in the first round.
They are Mitchell Trubisky (North Carolina), Deshaun Watson (Clemson), DeShone Kizer (Notre Dame) and Patrick Mahomes (Texas Tech).
Each year mockers over-value the Quarterbacks, even Geno Smith was once mocked at the 1st overall selection. So let me say, I don’t believe the Buffalo Bills will take a QB at number 10. Yet there are a lot of teams that have very unsettled depth charts at QB.
Those teams are Cleveland, San Francisco, Houston, New York Jets and Arizona (Palmer is getting really old). That’s a lot entering the draft, so QBs will be picked high based on need over talent.
When you talk about the Bills, you are either a Tyrod fan or you are not. I don’t believe he is Aaron Rogers, but he is good enough to win with and that’s all I need to be happy. The Bills are paying him to start next year and have a contract in place to keep him beyond that.
So, people can assume the Bills are still on the lookout for their ‘franchise QB” since it may not be Taylor.
So what should you do if you are the Bills? Let EVERYBODY know that you are looking QB!
If you go to workout a guy you hope is there for you to pick, the best way to make sure nobody knows is to take some pictures of you, the owner and his coaches.
If the picture was too much and your preferring secrecy, how about just making a dinner reservation for “Buffalo Bills and local QB”?
In summary you can’t make the visits any more public than the Buffalo Bills have made them. Maybe, it’s just the new era we live in and there are no more secrets. Maybe the Bills will pick a QB and they are throwing everybody off by publicly visiting ALL of them?
I just don’t buy it. This is more of a public showing to all teams, who may prefer one QB over the other, that the Bills aren’t focused on any one guy. They are focused on them all and if you are Arizona and like Kizer, you better make a trade to get to 10 or ahead of the Bills if you want him.
The problem is, the teams know this too right? There isn’t a GM that is biting his nails and offering up their best player because the Bills have a picture with North Carolina coaches, right?
On the flip side, the Bills wouldn’t be doing all this, if it didn’t work from time to time. Do you think the Bills are locked in on a Quarterback? I am sure we can find more proof if you wanted.
