NFL.com has several analysts put together mock drafts, several of them in fact leading up to the draft. Analyst Daniel Jeremiah not surprisingly has a quarterback going to Buffalo at eighth overall.
Here’s what he wrote in explanation of the pick.
Pick No. 8
The Bills dumped Ryan Fitzpatrick and almost certainly will use their top pick on his replacement. If they stay here, I think it will be Geno. If they bail out of the pick, all signs point to Ryan Nassib.
While the assumption remains Nassib if it’s not Smith due primarily to the Syracuse connections with head coach Doug Marrone and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, other quarterback options should not be dismissed.
Jeremiah does not have any other quarterback prospect coming off the board in round one.
