This years draft has a lot of talent in the top 10 then normal.
There seems to me to be about 10 players I would be happy to see go to Buffalo at #9. I don't ever remember feeling this good about 10 players when the Bills make their annual #10 pick.
I know that it doesn't make sense to most fans to take a QB in the first two rounds with EJ Manuel on the roster. However, Bills fans should consider the current situation of the Buffalo Bills organization and the changing of ownership.. Buffalo is much more likely to remain in Buffalo long-term with a franchise QB. I don't think may would argue that point.
If OBD thought that Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles, or Teddy Bridgewater was worthy of a top 10 pick and they believed they could be a franchise QB that they grade higher than EJ Manuel, it would be a very bad business decision to pass on them at #9 IMO.
The roster is ready to have a winning record if we get a QB, FS, and right tackle performing this year. No position is more critical the QB, Bills fans know this well after the last 14 years. Buffalo's top #1 priority should be to find a franchise QB and as much as we all hope its EJ, it hasn't happened yet.
Buffalo fans should feel really good about this draft whether we trade back or keep the #9 pick. Here is my Bills Big Board:
#1 Johnny Manziel
#2 Jadeveon Clowney
#3 Greg Robinson
#4 Sammy Watkins
#5 Mike Evans
#6 Khailil Mack
#7 Blake Bortles
#8 Jake Matthews
#9 Eric Ebron
#10 Anthony Barr
How do you guys feel about my Big Board? I need so Bills fan feedback since I am in Salt Lake with few Bills fans..
