NFL Injury Report:
Most NFL Draft analysts believe former Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib will be the second QB selected tonight after West Virginia's Geno Smith. However, Peter King of Sports Illustrated has reported that the Buffalo Bills are now targeting former USC quarterback Matt Barkley and not Nassib.
Buffalo tweeps: @si_peterking says he's hearing Buffalo is seriously targeting Matt Barkley.

The Bills have been tied to Nassib for some time, as he played his college ball in the state of New York and his head coach at Syracuse is now calling the shots in Buffalo. However, Buffalo has reportedly given Barkley and higher draft grade than Nassib.
This could of course be a smokescreen with the draft approaching. It's hard to say what might go on tonight considering there are no clear cut favorites among this year's quarterback class.
On the other hand, Buffalo could genuinely be interested in Barkley. We'll find out tonight.

Lots of teams throw up smokescreens leading up to the draft, and this might be one. Are the Bills interested in Barkley at No. 8?
Ryan Nassib could be the first quarterback taken off the board as high as the 8th pick by the Buffalo Bills. But today a former NFL Super Bowl winner who came from playing in the Arena Football League and asking people in the super market “Paper or Plastic” called him out.
Kurt Warner, who came out of nowhere to lead the St. Louis Rams to a Super Bowl title, doesn’t think Nassib...

It can go either way for Ryan Nassib Thursday night. He’ll either get passed over by his former college head coach and offensive coordinator or selected. It’s that simple and yet makes Thursday night that much more intriguing.
I support and genuinely like the idea of Marrone, Hackett and Nassib. Not only do I like it because I predicted it would...
It's not a secret that the quarterbacks of this year's draft class are a lot less popular than last year's bunch. It's pretty much a mystery when we'll hear each of their names called.

I’m not going to be the asshole who predicts it, but the Buffalo Bills may just draft Syracuse Quarterback Ryan Nassib in the top 10 selections of the 2013 NFL Draft. And they’re going to **** up the entire draft.
The Bills suffered through yet again another subpar season as the team finished with a 6-10 record. Though it would be unfair to label their problems solely on their...
ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio reported on SportsCenter this morning that Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg is “very high” on Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib.

With the NFL Draft upcoming on Thursday, USC Quarterback Matt Barkley is waiting to hear his name called. Barkley is coming off a sub-par season at Southern California but some project him as a second round or third round pick. Although USC has a history of their quarterbacks producing well while in school, they have not translated to the NFL. It is difficult to say if these guys...

How is Matt Barkley still available? As usual, some teams make some really questionable picks, but only time will tell if they fooled us all or if they made a huge mistake.

The day is finally here.
The NFL draft is upon us, and to many, it’s one of the best nights of the year to NFL fans. It’s also the last day for people to give out their mock drafts and thoughts on where each team is going to go with each pick. But no matter who says what, the predictions of the picks are a crapshoot, as it’s been called, at best.
That even goes for the great...
