2013 NFL Draft rumors: Bills "seriously targeting" Matt Barkley

US PRESSWIRE

As the big day approaches, rumors continue to swirl that the USC senior is a legitimate option for the Bills sitting at No. 8 overall.

Count Peter King of Sports Illustrated as the latest NFL reporter hearing that the Buffalo Bills are targeting a certain left-coast quarterback in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Other media members with connections - starting with WGR 550's Joe Buscaglia and including ESPN's Todd McShay - have made the same proclamation within the past week or so. In that same time frame, the hype machine has also spit out one other predominant name linked to the Bills' first-round pick: Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib.

Two NFL.com reporters, Ian Rapoport and Albert Breer, are now getting in on the Bills/Barkley buzz, as well. For the record, however, Rapoport is hearing that the Bills are targeting Barkley in the second round.

We're now just under 28 hours away from the start of the first round, and while Nassib is still the quarterback to which most league observers point when discussing the Bills, it's looking like Barkley's name might heat up over the next day or so. Stay tuned, because we're only just getting started on a crazy handful of days here.
