Found April 26, 2013 on Orange Fizz:
The Bills passing on Ryan Nassib is actually the best thing to happen to Syracuse football. Well, make it the second best thing. The greatest outcome of Buffalo and Doug Marrone taking the SU quarterback in the first round last night would’ve been an NFL dynasty. Had Nassib guided the Bills to multiple championships and grown into a Hall of Famer, the Orange braintrust would’ve been hailed as heroes, and SU would’ve reaped the rewards.

Orange Crush?: Bills Will Send Clear Message To Nassib At #8

© Mark Konezny-US PRESSWIRE 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...

Will Ryan Nassib be the next addition to the QB Competition?

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.

NFL Bible: This Nassib Candidate or Why the Bills are Going to F*ck up the Draft

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...
