Thursday could shape the future of the Buffalo Bills for years to come.
The team is expected to draft a possible franchise quarterback in the first-round of the 2018 NFL Draft on Thursday night.
Quarterbacks are the position that dominates NFL Draft talk in Rochester and with the Bills, and that’s no different in Dallas at the NFL Draft. As many as six quarterbacks could be taken in the first-round, and that would be a record. Two of the possible top six both played in the Pac-12 Conference last year, USC's Sam Darnold and UCLA's Josh Rosen.
Stanford Head coach David Shaw is working as an analyst for the NFL Network during the NFL Draft and coached against both of those quarterbacks. He said there's one element in particular that makes Rosen stand out to him.
"You can't let Josh stand in the pocket,” Shaw said. “He's the type of quarterback that makes good receivers great and great receivers special. He's great in the pocket and can make all the throws. He's a special passer like Tom Brady and Eli Manning, and guys who have won Super Bowls.”
The real decision for the Bills comes down to Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott in Orchard Park, and they'll make that call Thursday during the first-round of the NFL Draft.
