The Bills are keeping their eye on this year’s class of quarterbacks during the Senior Bowl in Alabama.
But they’re not alone.
“It's such an important position, if you're going to put him on your team, that you want to make sure you have all those answers by the time April gets here,” said Bills General Manager Brandon Beane.
There are plenty of quarterbacks to scope out, including Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield, who put up huge numbers during his career at Oklahoma.
He's shown he has the athleticism, arm strength and accuracy. But his less than ideal size and questions about his antics mean he has plenty to prove to the NFL.
“Prove that I can be the best quarterback in this class. That I'm ready to step up to the next level no matter what anybody wants to put me as a system quarterback, a six-foot guy, it doesn't matter. If you can win ball games, you can win ball games,” Mayfield said.
While Mayfield might not measure up to the prototype, Wyoming's Josh Allen certainly looks the part. He's 6' 5" and throws the ball with ease, but not always on target. He also struggled at times during his senior season against lesser competition, so he knows what teams want to see from him this week.
The Bills are interviewing many of these quarterbacks to get a feel for their personalities and knowledge of the game. One of them is Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph, who has to sit out with a sprained foot, but his confidence remains healthy.
Those are just a few the quarterbacks to watch, and you can't forget about the group of highly-touted underclassmen who figure to land near the top of the draft. The Bills have two first round picks and could be in-line to make a move if they think one of them could be the future of their franchise.
