Bills make EJ Manuel first quarterback taken in draft

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.
