I will admit that at this point I am fine with the Bills taking Nassib/Barkley or Smith in the first round. They all have flaws but at least it will be proof that the front office is trying.
The thing that will be interesting to me is if they don't take any of them and wait on the quarterback. If they proceed to catch either Nassib/Barkley in Round 2 that would be okay. But if they go for Glennon/Bray/Wilson I will be severely let down. That will be definitive proof that the Bills administration was just talking when they spoke of a "robust analytics department". Both of those prospects have LCF ratings in the Trent Edwards/Losman arena. For the front office to ignore that will be shameful.
If they can hold off and draft Landry Jones in the 3rd or 4th round, I think that this would be definitive proof that the front office is taking analytics seriously. Some may disagree with the choice, but everything I have seen from the guy looks good. I think he is just as strong (if not stronger) than Barkley/Nassib and the rest of the prospects. Plus he sounds like he's hungry to prove himself to all the doubters.
I just read on Bleacher Report that Bill Polian called him the best QB prospect in the draft too. I find that interesting since Bill is the type to dismiss analytics and the idea of using "moneyball" in the NFL.
Regardless, if the front office take the BPA at picks 1 and 2 and goes Landry in the 3rd, I think it will be definitive proof that this is a new era in the way Buffalo does business.
