What attending QB workouts gave Marrone

The Bills have been busy holding private workouts with college quarterback prospects the past couple of weeks. Head coach Doug Marrone has been to every one of them and here’s how he feels he benefits from them most.

“I think what it gives you the ability to do is, at least for me and I can only speak for me. I cannot speak for Buddy (Nix), Nathanial (Hackett) or anyone else that was with us. For me, it gives you the sense that you can make a decision and you are not listening to other people around,” Marrone said. “Whether it is the people at the college or whether it is the people at the Combine. Everyone can see the intangibles, but to get out there, work them and exactly what you are looking for helps us and gives us, at least me, I have a much better impression now having spent some time with those quarterbacks.”

Anything that facilitates the process in determining who is and isn’t a fit for the Bills in the draft is an obvious plus.

Buffalo has worked out QB prospects Geno Smith, E.J. Manuel, Landry Jones and Matt Barkley to this point.
