SI.com’s Don Banks submitted his fourth mock draft installment and sees a quarterback in Buffalo’s future with the third overall pick.
He has Blaine Gabbert going first overall to Carolina, followed by Marcell Dareus to Denver at 2. Then he has Cam Newton to the Bills at three. Here’s his explanation for the pick.
Chan Gailey couldn’t have been any clearer in his answer to my question last week at the coaches’ media breakfast in New Orleans: He believes both Gabbert and Newton are ready to play now in the NFL, and they have the skill sets of franchise-level quarterbacks. I don’t think Gailey and Bills general manager Buddy Nix are doing much bluffing these days, because they’re pretty sure at least one of the draft’s top two passers will be waiting for them at No. 3.
