Several NFL teams are looking for new quarterbacks this off-season and with limited options available through free agency, look for plenty of movement in the upcoming draft as teams look to nab a player that can lead a franchise for several years.
The Buffalo Bills is one of those teams in the market for a signal caller and while most mock drafts have the Bills taking a defensive player with the eighth overall pick, Ethan Grant of Bleacher Report has suggested that Buffalo will make a deal with Oakland to move up in the first round and then select West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith.
Smith is the top signal caller in this year’s draft call and a player that could become a star with his big arm, good mobility, and solid decision making on the field. Oakland would move down, but acquire more draft picks and that would help the Raiders in their rebuilding process.
With NFL free agency beginning this Tuesday, fans and experts will get a better idea of what teams want to do in the draft, but make no mistake, Buffalo is looking for a young quarterback and moving up to get Smith could be the move that lets this franchise move forward and become a contender in the AFC East in the near future.
