It’s apparent to everyone that the Buffalo Bills need a quarterback. That’s understandable, however having only quarterbacks in so far for private workouts kind of shows your entire proverbial hand. So far the Bills have entertained Geno Smith and E.J. Manuel (pictured above). The team needs to bring in players from other positions too throw other teams off their scent, unless they think they can add a quarterback in round two.
The Bills should bring in a player like University of Tennessee Volunteers‘ wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson to see how well he can run routes and get all of his measurable information first hand. In addition, they can discuss about his transition from a community college to a four year program to see if he can still progress into the pro ranks. Patterson exploded at the beginning of the 2012 football season and made a huge name for himself. He very well could be the first wide receiver taken in a month at the 2013 NFL Draft.
Another player they should consider talking to is University of Georgia Bulldogs defensive end/outside linebacker Jarvis Jones. Jones has an insane motor and would be an excellent complement to the Mario Williams led Bills defense which struggled against the run and only managed 36 sacks (Mario had 10.5). Also, by bringing Jones in, they can check out his spine by some of the best spinal doctors in the world after on again, off again reports of spinal stenosis which would effectively kill his playing career.
This is just an idea for the Bills. Unless they want to reveal their entire hand and be completely obvious, they have pick eight in the draft, not the number overall pick which is almost the only time a team should have a mindset like this.
