EJ Manuel2

Oh man. Just, just…oh man.

The Bills were connected to every person who has thrown a forward pass. I received a call after word surfaced that I once threw a three-yard strike in the fifth grade. Unfortunately, they had a higher grade on E.J. Manuel.

Seriously, this really happened. The Bills selected E.J. Manuel with the 16th overall pick they acquired from the Rams.

They were connected to Geno Smith early in the draft season, and the link to Ryan Nassib was natural with Doug Marrone as their new head coach. Hell, they were even tied to Matt Barkley.

Manuel? He visited Buffalo, and he felt pretty damn confident after his visit. But this is shocking, especially with that deep relationship between Nassib and Marrone, the former Syracuse quarterback and head coach.

More than anything, this speaks to the severe lack of depth and separation among this year’s quarterbacks, since it’s remarkable Manuel — widely projected as a second-round pick at best — was graded higher than Geno Smith by any team. Smith’s fall continues, and as I type this with the Giants currently on the board at 19th overall, he’s officially five picks away from matching Aaron Rodgers’ fall in 2005.
