According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib is in play for the Buffalo Bills and the 8th overall pick when the draft kicks off on Thursday night.
Nassib is definitely in play here, sources said. He played for Bills coach Doug Marrone at Syracuse, and I’m considering him in this group only because of that unique tie to the Bills. Otherwise, his only shot of going in the first round is if a team trades into the bottom portion of that round.
The Bills definitely need a quarterback, but I don’t believe Nassib is worth the 8th overall pick. I think he’s more of a second round prospect.
