Blaine Gabbert: QB, Missouri

It’s a fair assessment to say the Bills are officially a team on the rebuild. One thing they do have in their favor is that they have a pretty solid offense lined up already, with guys like C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson at back, and Steve Johnson and Lee Evans at receiver. I do think the D can get a little (lot) better, but it would be a damn shame for the Bills to pass on Blaine Gabbert at this spot.

Ryan Fitzpatrick is a good backup, but his 3,000 yards thrown is more of an indication of them trailing in games then it is of him being a decent starter. Gabbert has the potential to be a franchise QB, and has all the tools in him already. At 6’5"and 235 lbs., Gabbert would be a damn hard person to get on the ground. In the mold of a Ben Roethlisberger, if you will, but more East-West then North-South.

He is a solid QB with mechanics. He doesn’t do anything great, but he's above average at most basic QB tools. He's got decent strength, good vision, and can throw in stride. Is he going to make the Bills better right away? Probably not, but he is a great piece to build an already solid offense around.

Next on the clock will be Ralf E Chubbs picking for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Previous picks: #1 - Nick Fairley, #2 - Patrick Peterson
