Throughout the process, many Bills fans have been making their voices heard as to whom the team should take at quarterback. Some want Cam Newton, some Blaine Gabbert, some say wait until next year to go hard after Andrew Luck. There have been a growing number of fans lately proposing that the Bills should take their quarterback of the future at the top of round two with pick No. 34.
A good idea, you say? Draft defensive help in the first round, then in round two go get that quarterback we need so desperately, be it Christian Ponder, Colin Kaepernick or as I saw someone suggest, Ryan Mallett. But is that the way the Bills should go? There are those, myself included, who say that the first two rounds should be spent addressing the team's obvious defensive deficiencies, then worry about other positions.
But we need a quarterback is the response I've heard.
Well, maybe we do. I'm not one of those disagreeing with the need at the position. However, after a bit of research, I've found a number of good reasons why the Bills should select anything but a quarterback in the second round. What follows is a list of the 10 quarterbacks taken in the second round since 2001.
After you peruse this list, I'd like to hear from you. Given these odds, how do you feel about selecting a quarterback in the second round? Did this change your mind, or are you still on board with the idea?
Whatever your view on the subject is now or later, this list is sure to raise some eyebrows, so let's get started!
