Kiper: Nassib has been skyrocketing

Posted by Chris Brown on January 21, 2013 – 9:40 am

In a national conference call ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper was asked a lot about the quarterback prospects in this year’s draft. Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib name came up and Kiper wasn’t shy in shedding some light about the fact that arrow on Nassib is pointing up as the pre-draft process begins.

Nassib, who is participating in the Senior Bowl this week in Mobile, is a player that’s very familiar to Buffalo’s coaching staff, since Doug Marrone and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett coached him for three years as their starting QB. Here’s what Kiper had to say about Nassib and where he sees him coming off the board.

“Nassib has been skyrocketing all year,” said Kiper. “He’s right now in the second round discussion. That next tier beyond the top group that could end up being a second round pick. But a lot of people have high hopes for him. He obviously has an NFL arm, played in that system for Marrone and really came on. He was a guy that was a good decision maker and was really precise throwing the football and is firmly in that second round discussion right now.”
