SI.com’s Don Banks has put out the fifth installment of his mock draft and he’s got Buffalo taking a quarterback.
After he ships Cam Newton to Carolina and Marcell Dareus to Denver, he’s got Buffalo taking Missouri QB Blaine Gabbert with the following reasoning.
Texas A&M outside linebacker Von Miller seems to have emerged as the consensus choice for the Bills in NFL mockdom, but I still see Buffalo reasoning that it’s the right year and the right draft slot to take a franchise quarterback. You could take Gabbert and still play Ryan Fitzpatrick most of this season, following the Jon Kitna/Carson Palmer model in Cincinnati, circa 2003.
