Inside The Bills

Smith trade removes QB suitor for Bills

Posted by Chris Brown on February 27, 2013 – 2:22 pm

The Bills have made no secret they’re in the market for a quarterback prospect in this year’s draft. In the wake of San Francisco’s trade of Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs Wednesday, a quarterback suitor situated ahead of the Bills in the draft has been effectively eliminated.

Now with Alex Smith as their quarterback the Chiefs are expected to address their offensive tackle position with their top pick in the draft. Even in round two, Kansas City’s pick now belongs to San Francisco, which is not in the market for a quarterback.

The only viable threat in front of the Bills eighth overall pick that is likely to take a quarterback is the Arizona Cardinals at seven. Cleveland may consider a signal caller with the sixth pick, but with a multitude of other needs like a pass rushing outside linebacker it’s unlikely to happen.

That means the Bills figure to have a crack at one of the top two quarterback talents in the NFL draft.
