Here is what he has to say
"I spent a good chunk of time at Chan Gailey's table, and while I still don't know for sure if the Bills will go quarterback with the No. 3 overall pick (I believe they will), I am certain Gailey is more than sold on both Cam Newton's and Blaine Gabbert's NFL prospects.
"I can tell you right now there's no question they have an outstanding skill set, both of them,'' Gailey said, when I asked him if he had determined whether Newton and Gabbert were capable of playing and playing early in the NFL. "Outstanding. Not average. Not above average. Outstanding. Both of them [will] play early and long. I knew that after I watched them on tape.''
OK, juxtapose that with Gailey in the next breath talking about how he believes he can win "a bunch of football games'' and even "a championship'' with current Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, and it's clear the Bills head coach is sending some mixed signals. But while Gailey really likes Fitzpatrick, I think he knows his team could potentially draft a special player at No. 3, and it's not a chance he's likely to pass up.
"Anytime you have an opportunity to get a franchise guy, a guy you think can take you to the Super Bowl for 10-12 years, you've got to take a long hard look at that guy,'' Gailey said. "If you believe that, and you've got to believe that in your heart of hearts, you got to make that thing happen. And if you don't, where we sit right now is we've got Ryan, who we really believe in and really trust.''
After hearing Gailey gush over Newton and Gabbert, I have to believe he thinks one of them, or maybe both, have a chance of being franchise guys over the long haul in the NFL. If Gailey follows his own advice, it sounds like quarterback will be the pick in the third spot." - Don Banks of SI - CNN Sports
