I really hope they know what they're doing. Now to get him a couple of weapons and maybe we will have something.

If there's one thing we can say, it's that the Bills got the guy they wanted, and grabbed two extra picks in the process. Great job.

I like this pick. He might, but does not have to start right away. He also has the best arm strength of all the QBs touted as possible 1st-rounders.

Great pick, the guy I personally wanted all along, has much more upside then all the other options: athletic, strong arm, leader, . . . all good!

If anything, it was fantastic to see how happy he was, and his genuine pleasure at getting the opportunity to play for Buffalo.

Welcome to Buffalo, EJ. I hope this welcome message, which coincides with my 1000th post, is evidence of some sort of positive cosmic significance.

Or maybe it's just reflects my hopeless Bills fandom.

When I woke up today there was no scenario where I envisioned us not only gaining MORE picks but getting a high ceiling QB like this. Absolutely A+ job today so far. The FO got their man, made the AFC East lose Tavon Austin, and earned another 2nd round pick.
