Quarterbacks the Buffalo Bills can draft to upgrade the backup position: Clayton Tune, Houston

Unlike the aforementioned Bennett, Houston’s Clayton Tune stands a bit taller and does give the Bills that prototypical size at just over 6-foot-2 and weighing a solid 220 pounds. Playing up against lesser competition than someone like Bennett, Tune won’t be a Day 1 or Day 2 pick mostly due to that fact.

But, Tune also did exactly what he needed to do in college to become a pro. He dominated.

Over the past two seasons with Houston, Tune threw for 7,618 yards and 70 touchdowns to 20 interceptions. He is the definition of a gunslinger and will light it up when in rhythm. Speaking of rhythm, Tune does a great job of staying in rhythm by being patient. Like Bennett, Tune will move through his progressions in an efficient manner without making too many forced throws.

One of the biggest reasons he’ll fall, other than the lack of big competition, is due to needing to speed up his reading the field. It’s not as difficult to come back from tough starts at his level of competition, but as a pro, Tune will need to become quicker at making decisions, especially coming back from a negative game script.
