I’ll first start off by saying EJ was the most intriguing QB in this draft and he’s the guy I wanted to the Bills to go after (in the 2nd round).
1. He’s a big quick QB.
2. His mobility is going to make things tough on opposing defenses especially when they’re running the hurry up.
3. He’s a high character guy, he can lead the locker room from day one. We need a guy on offense who can do that. CJ, and Stevie are not those guys.
4. He’s got a great arm, he can sling it deep and he can put touch on it, this is a total 180 from Fitz and Trent. He can also make quick decisions and get rid of the ball fast, huge plus for our screen game.
5. The Bills liked him enough to ensure no other team got the chance to take him from underneath us.
It’s a bold move any many will say this is another botched pick by the Bills – being the only team to take QB in round 1 you could say we reached. I think the Bills believe they got their franchise guy, and I am on board for taking risks when you think that highly of a player.
Now if EJ isn’t the guy under center in Week 1, we can all throw rocks at Buddy Nix. I’m excited it’s officially a new era.
