NFL Draft 2013: Buffalo Bills Will Workout Tennessee’s Tyler Bray Next Week


The Buffalo Bills need a quarterback, which is perhaps the worst kept secret in the NFL. In fact, the Bills don’t want it to be a secret, they’re taking all comers to see if they can’t find their quarterback of the future to carry the franchise to the next level. Right now Tavaris Jackson is the starter, but it’s long been known that the Bills will almost certainly spend a draft pick on a signal caller, the only question is how high will they draft one?

We may have an idea of where the Bills are looking at taking a quarterback, as the team has scheduled a private workout with Tennessee Volunteers quarterback Tyler Bray.

Bray is currently projected to be a middle-round pick, which means the Bills are exploring all options even those beyond the first round. Bray has a big arm, and is a solid quarterback but historically has struggled when faced with pressure and that’s something that has sunk the Bills previous quarterbacks, most notably Ryan Fitzpatrick who managed to fizzle out as quickly as he arrived on the scene.

But Bray is just one of many quarterbacks the Bills have been looking at, and his private workout in way means that Buffalo has selected a favorite. But Bray is valued enough to be called in for a workout, which means if he works hard enough he may find himself starting in the NFL in 2013.
