1. Why did we not draft a guard?
We did not need to. Buddy's quote was you draft tackles and move them to guard. We have a solid starting offensive line - Glenn-Urbik-Wood-Young-Pears. Young was move to guard during OTAs and has been working out well.
2. Why take Manuel @ 16 and why so early?
We needed a quarterback. Manuel is that guy for the Bills new system. I did not say he was the best quarterback in this draft but he is best suited to run the offense that Coach Hackett wants. He can make all the throws and with coaching be a soiid QB for the system. He was drafted early because the Bills did not want to lose out on their first choice. What ever rumors people say after the pick or the grade of the pick is BS. When he becomes a winning quarterback for us the Todd Mcshays and Skip Baylesses of the world can eat crow.
3. Why did we not draft a corner?
At the time of picking the Bills draft people had other positions ranked higher. We did get a could solid UDFA corners.
4. Who will make the team? Note I still think we pick up Dansby and Moore
