    I don’t know HOW the Bills can possibly think about drafting someone other than a quarterback. You can tinker around the edges all you’d like, but a QB is imperative to right the ship and starting moving towards some wins. Trading up to Cam Newton, if it doesn’t cost too much, could really be the right move. Check it out:

    Ryan Fitzpatrick clearly played well enough last season to get a shot to be the starter in 2011. I wouldn’t be shocked nor upset if they go Patrick Peterson or Von Miller, two guys on defense that can be game changers for years to come.
