Bills make EJ Manuel first quarterback taken in draft
|04.25.13 at 10:09 pm ET|
The Bills made Florida State’s EJ Manuel the first quarterback taken Thursday night, drafting him with the 16th overall pick.
Buffalo opted for the 6-foot-4 5/8, 237-pounder over the likes of Geno Smith and Ryan Nassib, both of whom were linked to the Bills throughout the pre-draft process. Manuel has accuracy issues, which could be a big problem at the next level.
The pick was acquired from the Rams in a trade for the eighth overall pick, which St. Louis used to select Tavon Austin.
