Only one Quarterback was taken in the first round, and it wasn’t Geno Smith.
The Bills–like they are prone to do–shocked most observers when they selected Florida State’s E.J Manuel with the 16th pick.
ESPN reports the West Virginia QB isn’t coming back for day two. In fact he’s leaving New York entirely. Aaron Rodgers, who endured a long wait back in 2005, tweeted words of encouragement to Smith.

Teams in the second round that could target Smith include the Eagles at pick 35, Arizona at pick 38, the Jets right after and Oakland at pick 42.
