no meeting with Baker?

He literally just arrived. I would guess Buffalo will get to him later.

He was late due to a family emergency. He just stepped foot on the field.

My speculation:

 

Mayfield won’t be a first rounder Imo.  He’s not Manziel... but you’ve got height risk, off the field risk and progression ability risk. 

 

Allen might go earlier than people think. His release is quick and tight. Nice athlete for a talker guy. 

 

Darnold and Rosen are interesting- I don’t see them as foles and wentz, but I think the top of the order is going to go for it anyway. Cant tell if these are system guys destined for nfl mediocrity. 

Mayfield will go in the top 5 and might even go earlier as teams drool over his accuracy. Allen is the one with the big arm with many concerns with his low accuracy and low TD/ INT ratio. JMO

Watching NFLN on my phone, he literally just stepped on the field for the beginning of North practice. Should be on the field for a while.

There are like 15 teams that need qbs.  Whether you think they're worth it or not these guys are all going somewhere in the first round. Rosen,  Darnold, Allen, Mayfield,  Jackson and Rudolph will all go 1st round. Unless one of them chokes at the combine or Mayfield measures under 6.

They will meet with everyone they possibly can at the senior bowl because they only have a limited # of players they can meet with at the combine, and they will want to stack those with underclassmen who aren’t in Mobile.

Yep. What will be interesting is if there is a double meeting. Ie Senior Bowl and Combine. If they use one of their 15 minute meetings at Combine with the same QB they met at Senior Bowl you can start to see who they really like

If he's going top five, I hope we're trading up.

Allen might go earlier than people think. His release is quick and tight. Nice athlete for a taller guy.

Rudolf I know nothing about.

 

lamar Jackson is an very intriguing dev prospect 

I love Darnold/Rosen and really hope somehow someway they get one of them.

Mayfield is going top 15 bank it IMO. Doubt he gets past Denver.

Allen has problems with feet and accuracy, needs a few seasons of development and still could bust by what some are saying. He is more for a team that already has a franchise QB, maybe one close to retirement IMO so he can sit and learn for a few years.

Rudolph is a very intriguing prospect that could possibly be taken with our first pick without moving at all.  They have looked at him a few times already. He can rack up yards, great in the pocket, accurate, he has had a great football development his entire time in schools. Jackson is so way off the charts to bother with IMO because he is run first just like we have now so why get Tyrod 2.0, he does not make my top 5 or even top 7 from this draft.

As per Dunkirk Don, the Bills are infatuated with Josh Allen.  Hopefully they don't do anything stupid and trade away their draft for a QB that is probably 2 yrs away from playing 

If a qb is two years away from playing that is the least of the team's worries. The issue isn't how soon the qb will play as it is when he is ready to play how good is going to be? There are two parts to our qb situation next year. One is to get a bridge qb who can play the position at an adequate level and also play in a full range offense. That would be in contrast to adjusting the offense to the limitations of the qb. The second part of the qb issue is obviously finding a franchise qb from this pool of prospects. It is improbable that the qb we select (assuming we do so) will be ready to play immediately. 

 

I'm not looking for a quick fix. Odds are against a rookie making an immediate splash. What I want is a credible prospect in the pipeline who in the not too distant future will be ready when he is the one taking the snaps.

I like Harrison Phillips!  But I’m sure it’s nowhere near as much as Sean does.

I heard that he has a poster of him hanging above his bed.

D. Jeremiah compared him to Kyle Williams in his top 50.

Odds are against Mayfield and Rudolph becoming good NFL QBs and it has nothing to do with size or attitude.  I just do not trust offensive players coming out of that conference unless they are physical freaks and absolutely dominate. Wouldn't trust OT Williams or Brown either. Zero defense is played in the Big 12.

Seems like they met with a lot of Quarterbacks. Don't think the Bills brass are looking at a free agent QB.

Philips and McCray interest me very much.  They would be great additions.  

 

QBs are a conundrum unless we trade up for one of the big 4.

there is a very good chance he is full of crap but also a very small chance that he is right.  we have had posters in the past like Leroi who were often pretty accurate so who knows

Yes, but Leroy was a completely different thing.  He infrequently posted his inside info, very carefully, and he developed credibility over time.  Dufus Don, not so much.  Blasted us with BS, claimed credit for being right about things that either happened before he ever posted or just happened because there was a70% chance they would anyway.  "Dennison likely to be fired" Oh really?  SDS called him out on lies about where he was posting from.  On and on.  He is an idiot who seems to have thankfully gone away.   There is a zero percent chance he was posting "inside information".

Supposedly the Broncos are going to pursue Cousins aggressively.  If they land him before the draft, they'll pass on a top QB.

Predictions:

 

Someone will fall in love with Allen and move up top 5.

 

Someone will roll the dice on Mike White and take him the 2nd.

I can’t wait until the Bills use like 6 combine visits on Harrison Phillips just so they can spend more time with him. 15 minutes just isn’t enough

He’s definitely getting one of the overnight pre-draft visits. They are going to watch “Vision Quest” at least once.

I'm glad they named off nearly every QB in the draft I don't like :(
