SI.com mock has QB to Bills at 8

Posted by Chris Brown on January 24, 2013 – 2:37 pm

SI.com’s Don Banks has put together his initial mock draft for 2013, and not surprisingly he has a quarterback going to the Bills with the eighth overall selection.

Banks chose to give the Bills N.C. State QB Mike Glennon. Here’s what he wrote about the pick.

8 QB Mike Glennon N.C. State Sr. 6-6 220

This pick doesn’t reflect where Glennon’s stock stands today, but where I think it’s headed. Granted, Buffalo’s need at quarterback is driving this projection of Glennon cracking the top 10. If the Bills don’t find him intriguing, he very well may not make the first round. New Bills head coach Doug Marrone probably loves his collegiate QB, Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib, but he’s more likely to earn a second-to-mid-round grade. Just got a hunch that Glennon’s size and arm strength will grow on NFL personnel men as the draft approaches.

Banks did have two other quarterbacks coming off the board before Glennon. He had West Virginia’s Geno Smith going to the Eagles with the fourth overall pick and USC’s Matt Barkley to the Cardinals with the pick right in front of Buffalo at seven.

Depending on what Browns new head coach Rob Chudzinski thinks of his current QB Brandon Weeden may also make Cleveland another team that could disrupt Buffalo’s likelihood of taking a quarterback in round one.
