Is Ryan Nassib To The Buffalo Bills A Lock?

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Yahoo! Sports' Michael Silver suggests that if any other NFL team wants Nassib, they'll have to pick him before Buffalo is on the clock in the 2nd round.

The overriding theory ever since Doug Marrone took the job (and everything but the kitchen sink) with the Buffalo Bills is that he would draft Syracuse Orange quarterback Ryan Nassib in the 2nd round of the 2013 NFL Draft. They've known each other for four seasons, Marrone knows exactly what he's getting, his OC and QB already have a strong relationship and Nassib could be groomed to take over in 1-2 years.

Of course, maybe that was just wishful thinking by Orange fans who want to see Nassib succeed.

Yahoo! Sports' Michael Silver suggests that the original hypothesis is in fact true and if any other NFL team wants Nassib, they'll have to pick him before Buffalo is on the clock in the 2nd round.

There's a growing sense in NFL circles that new coach Doug Marrone will target Nassib, who starred for him at Syracuse the previous three seasons, with the ninth pick of the second round (41st overall).

"If I'm a team that needs a quarterback and wants the Syracuse kid," one AFC front-office executive said, "I know I've gotta get ahead of Buffalo in the second round."

It really would be a best-case scenario for Nassib, at least in terms of finding a team that will be invested in him and has repoire with him.

As for Justin Pugh, Shamarko Thomas, Sir Alec Lemon, Marcus Sales and Zach Chibane, we'll have to wait and see just how strong those Syracuse ties are.

By the way, all this talk of Nassib being drafted made me nostalgic for the days when he first became our starter and we all wondered what the hell was going on. I took a look back at those days and my concerns for Ryan's hair were justified.
