The Bills have their quarterback of the future in EJ Manuel, who was selected on day one with the 16th overall pick. But with just three quarterbacks off the board through the first two days the quarterbacks left on the board suddenly present good value. The Bills still have some positional needs, but come the fifth or sixth round might it make sense to stock away a second QB prospect?
Here are some of the more notable quarterbacks still on the board as we get set for Day 3 of the NFL Draft, including some that made pre-draft visits to Buffalo or had private workouts with the Bills.
Matt Barkley – USC (visited, private workout)
Ryan Nassib – Syracuse (private workout)
Tyler Bray – Tennessee (visited, private workout)
Matt Scott – Arizona (visited)
Tyler Wilson – Arkansas (visited)
Landry Jones – Oklahoma (visited, private workout)
Jeff Tuel – Washington St. (visited)
Zac Dysert – Miami (OH)
I’d expect the Bills to address some pressing positional needs like CB, TE or S first before considering another signal caller. Other NFL teams have parlayed extra young quarterbacks on their roster into future draft choices, most notably the Philadelphia Eagles.
