The chatter is getting crazy out there as we're hours away from the start of the draft. Despite a perceived lack of interest this year due to labor strife, social media are allowing statements to fly at warp speed.
What's true, and what's not?!
The latest buzz surrounds the Bills interest in Blaine Gabbert. Listen Bills, on the heels of a lost decade(and we won't get into the lousy first round picks), and the Sabres elimination from the Stanley Cup Playoffs two nights ago, the good people of Buffalo can't take any more.
DON'T DRAFT BLAINE GABBERT!
Too many other glaring needs. You're not going to fix this mess in one year anyway. Most likely, you'll be drafting in the top 10 next year with a deeper QB class and a rookie wage scale.
Gabbert may develop into a fine NFL QB one day. Buffalo doesn't have the luxury to find out. Besides, can a guy who lost to Navy, 35-13, in a bowl game, expect to be the savior of the Bills? Here's his statline from that game:
15/31 291 yds 48.8% 1 TD 2 INT ( TD pass was a 58 yd slant and run)
9 carries -24 yds -2.7 yds/carry
Now don't get me wrong, I love Navy and they're a tough match up for a lot of teams, but Cam Newton never loses to Navy, under any circumstances.
