The Buffalo Bills are expected to draft a quarterback and did just that in a special mock draft from FanSided featuring legends of the game.

We just released our latest 2018 NFL mock draft this afternoon, which featured a few big moves made by the Buffalo Bills.

The moves set up the team to grab a quarterback, which is the same position the team addressed in a recent mock draft from FanSided.

The difference in the one from FanSided, written by Russell S. Baxter, is that it was an all-time greats mock. Baxter took the original first-round draft order, where the Bills sit at No. 21, and had teams choose from the greatest players to ever play the game.

The Cleveland Browns start off by addressing the quarterback position with the selection of Tom Brady, while Jim Brown is taken off the board at No. 3 to the Indianapolis Colts.

The Bills decide to go quarterback and take Brett Favre at No. 21 overall. From the article:

"Brett Favre is now a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. No, the suggestion here is not to coax him out of retirement (although tempting). He was there week in and week out for the Green Bay Packers, New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings. Second in league history in touchdown passes (508) and a NFL record for career interceptions (336). But who knows more about just “winging it” than the people of Buffalo?"

Favre in his prime would be great for this Bills team. He would provide some legendary talent and would fit in perfectly with the Bills Mafia. Maybe he would even put himself through a table before a game. For the people.

Tom Brady and Peyton Manning were already off the board when it came to pick No. 21, so Favre is a solid choice given his experience in a cold weather city. That skill is built up a bit too much in some cases, but it appears to have been a factor in this mock draft, which is hypothetical anyway so we can go along with it.

Do you like the selection of Favre in this legends mock draft? Or would you rather have the team select another quarterback with Brady and Manning off the board.
