The Buffalo Bills need a starting quarterback, even though they went out and signed A.J. McCarron this offseason. While McCarron has looked good in spurts, he is a career backup, and the Bills did not trade up nine spots to pick anything but a quarterback. In fact, they may package some picks to move up even further, but if they stay at No. 12, they may be able to grab a franchise guy anyway.
One player who is mocked to go all over the first round is Josh Allen from Wyoming. Those who do not care about the completion percentage issues have him going first overall, and some have him sliding as low at No. 15 to Arizona. We will take the middle ground, and have the Bills taking a shot on Allen, who did not put up great stats at Wyoming.
Allen’s physical gifts are unmatched in this draft class, and he is used to playing in cold weather, which is what he will encounter in Buffalo. He has the size you look for in a franchise guy, and the hope is his lack of production was caused by the lack of talent around him. He is going to be a solid player at the next level, and Buffalo may be the perfect landing spot for him on Thursday.
