Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib is someone that a lot of people have their eyes on in the upcoming draft season. According to reports, though, he has his eye on one team in particular. Nassib has said that he would like to re-join his former coach at Syracuse, Doug Marrone, in playing for the Buffalo Bills. In an interview with WGR (per the Bills official website), Nassib has said that it he would love to stay in-state and play for the Bills. “That would be a great situation, I love the city of Buffalo,” Nassib said Tuesday  ”I’m a Central New York guy, that type of weather, and going to Buffalo with all those Syracuse guys there that would be a match made in heaven.” After another disappointing season at One Bills Drive, fans and ownership alike have come to realize that current starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick isn’t the long-term solution at quarterback and that the team needs to be willing to bring in a young quarterback to either groom for the future or at least compete for a starting job. Nassib has been a name that’s been brought up often ever since Buffalo hired former Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone to fill the position left vacant by fired former coach Chan Gailey. Marrone brought along Offensive Coordinator Nathaniel Hackett and several other Orange coaches for his new staff in Buffalo, so it seems as though if Nassib was drafted by Buffalo he would already have a bit of a head start in terms of learning the system. “Just like anybody would like to be with the coach that they’ve been with for the last three years,” Nassib said when interviewed on the John Murphy show in Buffalo this week.  “That’s just definitely an advantage, instead of building a relationship with somebody new. You already have a relationship with somebody else. But that’s a rare situation, that usually doesn’t happen. It’s just kinda like a special circumstance.” There will definitely be eyes on Nassib, as well as QBs Mike Glennon (NC State) and Zac Dysert (Miami of Ohio) when they split time playing for the North in the senior bowl in three days. The senior bowl is a good early indicator of what can be expected in the upcoming draft season. The post Ryan Nassib: Playing for Bills “match made in heaven” appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
