Quarterbacks the Buffalo Bills can draft to upgrade the backup position: Dorian Thompson-Robinson, UCLA

Finally, and by far the most tantalizing prospect of the group, the Bills could look at Dorian Thompson-Robinson out of UCLA.

The senior stands 6-foot-2, weighs 203 pounds and possesses a strong, athletic profile with a dual-threat skillset. He’s definitely a developmental prospect, but Thompson-Robinson put a lot of good film out there, especially in 2022.

He reads the field well, but can improvise when pressure comes and the play falls apart. That’s where he can use his legs to create something out of nothing. Over the past two seasons, specifically, is where we’ve seen this come into play more often. He’s rushed for over 1,250 yards in those two seasons, combined, going over 600 in each of them.

Thompson-Robinson is very accurate on short and intermediate throws, but can struggle on the longer passes if they’re not a clear, open window. That’s where he could learn from someone like Josh Allen, who loves throwing the deep ball and has been one of the league’s best on those types of anticipatory throws.
