2013 NFL Mock Draft: Should the Buffalo Bills Consider Mike Glennon at No. 8?

(Bob Donnan/USA Today Sports)

Once again, the Buffalo Bills are coming off a disappointing 2012 season in which they failed to record a winning record once again and now–everybody is wondering whether or not the team should accept their losses about the investment made in Ryan Fitzpatrick and select a new quarterback in this year’s draft.

Many 2013 NFL Mock Drafts have the Bills selecting a quarterback at No. 8 considering all of the struggles surrounding Fitzpatrick and to be honest–there’s no reason why they shouldn’t think that way. Fitzpatrick has proven to be one of those quarterbacks that was a one-hit wonder and for the organization to give him a hefty contract prior to last season was one of the biggest mistakes they could have ever made.

There’s plenty of great quarterback talents in this year’s draft class and if Geno Smith is already off the board at No. 8, there’s no reason why the Bills shouldn’t consider Mike Glennon. Here’s a quarterback that many believe could jump up into the first round of April’s draft and even if it does take him a year or two to develop–it would still be a better option to go with than Fitzpatrick.

If anything is clear after the 2012 season for Buffalo, it’s Fitzpatrick clearly wasn’t the answer the organization was hoping for when they decided to make him a franchise quarterback. Now, they have no other choice but to admit their mistakes over making a poor investment in Fitzpatrick and move on by selecting a new quarterback in this year’s draft–which is why Glennon makes perfect sense.
