"My sense is that Bills coach Chan Gailey would love to use the No. 3 pick on a quarterback. He’s an offensive-minded coach with a reputation as someone who can develop quarterbacks, so of course he’d cherish a shot at Cam Newton or Blaine Gabbert. I just hope he and Buddy Nix resist the temptation and doesn’t reach for Newton or Gabbert at No. 3."
