NFL.com Senior Columnist Vic Carucci in a live chat with fans today was asked about Buffalo’s priorities going into the NFL draft. It was assumed by the questioner that the QB position was settled and said as much in his question, but Carucci’s response was very telling. Here’s what Vic said.
“Not so sure that the Bills are thinking their QB position is settled. From everything I hear, GM Buddy Nix likes Cam Newton a great deal, and the Bills might very well be inclined to take him in the No. 3 slot. Now they also might be of the opinion they could wait to take him in the second round, and that might very well happen, too. But I think QB will be prominently on the Bills’ radar.”
Vic also went on to say that addressing the defensive line would be high on the priority list as well, which is very much expected come late April. He also mentioned tight end.
