Glennon to Buffalo?
By Tim Kavanagh
Outgoing Buffalo Bills GM Buddy Nix hinted on numerous occasions during the 2012 season that the club would be considering using a high draft pick on a QB this offseason, perhaps as high as their first-rounder. As we get closer to the actual draft, many mocks have shipped a passer to the Bills at No. 8, though the identity of the QB has varied. What about N.C. State's Mike Glennon?
In his most recent mock for NFL.com, Bucky Brooks had Glennon as the Bills' pick, writing, "Although Glennon is a limited athlete prone to making mistakes under duress, he is an A-plus arm talent with tremendous potential."
Whoever is selected will be competing with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tarvaris Jackson, the latter of whom was re-signed recently. When it comes to Glennon, ESPN AFC East blogger James Walker doesn't see it:
James WalkerNot a match, in my opinion
"I don't see Glennon going to Buffalo at No. 8 overall. However, Glennon would be a strong contender for the Bills at the top of the second round. Glennon probably won't make it that far if he has a strong combine this week."
