The Buffalo Bills are expected to copy the dramatic maneuvering of their AFC East rival, the New York Jets, and engineer a draft trade-up to presumably secure one of the class' top quarterback prospects.
However, while the NFL world awaits Buffalo's move, Bills general manager Brandon Beane said Friday - the day before the Jets traded for the No. 3 overall pick - that his team has yet to formulate their final opinions on the quarterback prospects and therefore aren't ready to determine if a trade is necessary.
"The truth? Most of these quarterbacks I've only spent 15 minutes with," Beane said, according to Peter King of SI.com. "I haven't spent enough time to have an opinion about any of them yet, honestly. I actually sent a little note to our (scouts) yesterday. We got six weeks to get our board together.
"I am not there yet, knowing if we can or will move up again. I want Sean to get to know all of them. We're just keeping an open mind. Where we're at, we've got the picks, we've got the draft capital. I'm not ready to pull the trigger."
The Bills signed AJ McCarron during free agency, likely to act as a potential stop-gap starter or veteran voice alongside any potential incoming rookie.
Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen, and Josh Rosen are generally seen as the top four quarterbacks, but with the quarterback-desperate Cleveland Browns and the Jets at No. 1 and No. 3, respectively, Buffalo will likely need to trade up to the New York Giants' No. 2 spot to land its desired next face of the franchise.
