In a countless number of mock drafts out there in cyberspace the Bills have been projected to take either Cam Newton or Blaine Gabbert with the third overall choice. There have been several other mock defensive choices as well, but Chan Gailey’s high praise for both Gabbert and Newton at the league’s owners’ meetings might convince one that Buffalo is ready to take a QB.
“I can tell you right now there is no question they have outstanding skill sets — both of them,” Gailey said Tuesday at the league meetings to CBSSports.com among others. “Not average, not above average, outstanding — to play early and long.”
Gailey also openly weighed both sides with respect to the decision to either take a QB at three or pass or roll with Fitzpatrick in 2011 without a future prospect waiting in the wings.
Obviously if the Bills believe one of them is a true franchise type QB they’ll take him, but if they have any doubts at all they’ll almost certainly be going defense.
