Bills get their franchise quaterback, draft E.J. Manuel April 25, 2013 by Paul Jackiewicz 1 Comment Many people thought the Buffalo Bills might take Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib in this years NFL draft. But that wasn’t the case. The Bills decided to trade down and take Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel with the 16th overall pick. With the way the Bills’ current quarterback situation looks, I would think Manuel will have a chance to start right away.
