Regarding the May 3 Rumors page, recently fired Buffalo GM Doug Whaley did not have the final say in who would be drafted. Well-respected Bills beat writer Vic Carucci has stated that new head coach Sean McDermott would not have signed here unless he could run most of the show. Whaley has not spoken publicly (on behalf of the Bills) since his disaster of a news conference trying to explain Rex Ryan's firing. There is no question that McDermott ran the draft, although I'm sure he consulted with Whaley and the former scouts.

However, a fair point was made that it will be difficult (impossible?) to get quality scouts to cover all areas. The owners (the Pegulas) still have a lot to learn about owning a pro sports franchise and they actually own two of them (three if you want to count the Buffalo Bandits lacrosse team).

You can bet the house that the Bills new GM will definitely have a strong connection to McDermott (probably Carolina Asst. GM Brandon Beane).

this drives me insane. you clowns have people like mitch tribusky slotted to go number 1 who to me hasn't ever looked like a #1 pick, but yet the guy in back to back natty titles and the guy who throws for over 400 yards against the "team that could beat the browns" in a comeback for the ages, but yeah.. that's a 3rd rounder. the same as Russell Wilson, dak Prescott lmao right?

@lmao walt 

Watson is the new Tebow and Manziel. Fans love to blow their loads to him but if you actually pay attention to them and notice the blatant flaws in their games then you would have known that they are not NFL caliber QBs. Some stupid team will take him in the 1st anyway though.

@lord kaliwax     Not even close to compare D. Watson to J.Manziel or T.Tebow    serious?   Before the year started people said Watson was much like R. Wilson...now its all over the road.... I think he`s outstanding....  Tape haters will point out tons  but they forget how well he plays in huge games....  all qb`s have crap tape on them...brady included   for 3 qtrs he looked average but came on strong as always...  I hope all the negative stuff gets D. Watson to play motivated to prove doubters wrong...

@lord kaliwax 

He's better than Manziel and Tebow and doesn't have the perpetual media circus.  And unlike Manziel, he seems like a decent person.  I don't think he's #1 overall material, but he should go in the top 3 rounds somewhere, probably will be gone by the first half of the second round.

@lmao walt Mitchell wants to be in Cleveland. I agree he shouldn't go #1 but it will be the best thing that could happened to Watson!

@lord kaliwax 

Watson is more like Geno Smith than the two you listed but same net result ultimately.

@lord kaliwax Except Watson can actually throw the ball and is a functional adult?

I thought Davis Webb blew these guys out of the water at the combine. I'm trying to get the hype on Mahomes, I just don't get it?

@Dan.Mock   I agree  he had outstanding #`s surprising how athletic he tested tbh ... what I`m curious about is no comments about R. Foster.... he could drop to RD2-3 if he keeps being a dick to people involved in the process.... to be asked to leave the combine...just wow....  can`t control himself looks horrible....

I'll put this out there first...I am a Michigan fan and really like Taco Charlton as a long term high performing DE in the NFL. However, I really don't see him as a player who belongs in the top ten of this year's draft prospects.

Sounds like the same guys who are downgrading Solomon Thomas are busy talking up Charlton as a replacement DE.

I would be happy with the Lions picking Charlton at #21 due to his potential and our need for a DE, but I would be much happier with Derek Barnett or Solomon Thomas.

The Solomon Thomas stuff intrigues me. Kind of reminds me of Brandon Graham coming out of college and a lot of his NFL career. There's talent but where is his best fit?

Though I will say I think he's more polished than Graham coming out of college. 

Aside from the 40 and broad jump, all the "sexy" drills, if he shows any proficiency in coverage his stock will jump up because I think people will start to think he can play OLB in a 3-4 at that point. 

In my point of view, he needs to go to a team that has a specific role for him, kind of like how the Cardinals did for Deone Bucannon and Tyrann Mathieu.

@JetsFan87  With his size and power and outstanding play against the run, I think his best fit is as a DE who swings inside to a DT in a 4-3 set. Kerry Hyder had a good season for the Lions at LDE and he is 6'-2" 270 pounds, without the athletic ability that Thomas has.

I just don't think Thomas will have the pass coverage ability to play OLB in a 3-4. He could be like Terrell Suggs who basically stays on the line for over 95% of the time he is on the field, even though he is listed as an OLB.

I don't think Thomas gets past New Orleans at #11.

I will be gobsmacked if Thomas falls to the Lions at #21. I am thinking that these comments are part of a smokescreen being thrown up by teams that would love to have this guy but really believe he will be picked earlier. I'm not sure he is a top five guy, but then in this draft [after Garrett and Allen] who is?

Lol. Manning coming back would be better than Romo. Probably cost a lot of money and he would get injured his first game. If not, expect about 2 INTs a game.

@lol walt

Can Mike Williams/Clemson receivers get any props for catching ridiculous 50/50 jump balls? How about Clemson's D which was Top 10 in most relevant categories? Chad Kelly and Manziel both ripped Bama to shreds as well. Vince Young ripped a loaded USC team up. And I could go on. Good job for Watson, but under a microscope a couple of good games against Alabama has little to do with his ability to make consistent NFL level throw.

@lord kaliwax it's pretty clear that like most, you talk out of your ass and don't know what you're talking about. Watson is nothing like those 2. He can actually read a defense and has a great arm. Of course you're lazy and group those 3 together, as you're saying Watson is a run first QB which is laughable and stereotypical. It's ok though, keep spewing hot takes, it's what stupid people of today's generation love to do anyway.

@Smfh 

I'm comparing the fanboys, not the QBs. Reading comprehension, bro.

@Smfh 

Though if you want to get into specifics:

"He can actually read a defense"

That's a weird way of saying, "Stares down his targets all the time and waits for his targets to get open before throwing."

"and has a great arm"

That's a weird way of saying, "Terrible deep ball accuracy, sails passes far too often, and has bad ball placement which makes his targets do more work than they should to make the catch."

@lord kaliwax Lol I don't think he was implying any of that. You sound like my wife, always putting words in people's mouths. Don't be like my wife. No one likes my wife.
