Don't count Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel out of the conversation surrounding the Buffalo Bills and the 2013 NFL Draft just yet. Pro Football Talk carried an item earlier today in which Manuel listed the Bills among three teams that have shown the most interest in him.
"I feel really good about the Philadelphia Eagles, I feel really good about the Buffalo Bills, I feel really good about the New York Jets," Manuel said on The Dan Patrick Show. "I met with even more teams than that, but those are some of the teams I feel really confident in. I know they need quarterbacks, I know they want quarterbacks, they have brand new coaching staffs and things like that, so they want a fresh start. They want an energetic kind of quarterback to come in and play."
Manuel is among a large group of quarterbacks that the Bills both worked out privately on campus and brought in to Orchard Park for a pre-draft visit, so it's worth pointing out that while Buffalo has shown a lot of interest in Manuel, they've also shown equal interest in many of his draft classmates at the same position. While most Bills-related draft talk over the next week will likely revolve around Matt Barkley and Ryan Nassib, it's important to keep in mind that there are other quarterbacks on Buffalo's radar.
