ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix has dropped enough hints over the past six months. The message is clear: Nix is keen to select a quarterback in the NFL draft.
Nix first mentioned the need to develop a QB in November, when the Bills were bumbling toward their eighth consecutive losing season. Very little has changed, with the team in the midst of another start-from-scratch rebuilding plan.
Nix has discounted questions about this year's crop of prospects by indicating he's confident there are ``two or three'' franchise-caliber quarterbacks among them.
Buffalo owns the eighth pick overall. Among those often linked to the Bills are West Virginia's Geno Smith, Southern California's Matt Barkley and Ryan Nassib, who played under Bills rookie coach Doug Marrone at Syracuse.
