Jerry Sullivan's Power Take: I thought it was a bad QB class

One major rationalization for the Bills keeping Tyrod Taylor was that this was year's draft was such a bad one for quarterbacks. Really? Then how come they're spending so much time evaluating the top QBs?

They've had private workouts with Mitchell Trubisky, DeShone Kizer and Patrick Mahomes. Evidently, Terry Pegula was present for the workouts. Nice of the owner to get involved.

Could they be thinking of taking a quarterback with the 10th overall pick? If not, what's the point? As usual, the QBs are shooting up the mock drafts. Mel Kiper has Mahomes up to 13. The Browns are thinking of taking Trubisky first overall. Clemson's Deshaun Watson is projected to go from seventh to 13th.

There's virtually no chance any of the top QBs will be there in the second round. They could trade up, but they have limited resources. There's a one-year out in Taylor's latest extension, so they could take a QB at 10 and let him sit behind Tyrod for a year.

That would be a typically shortsighted case of the Bills wanting it both ways, which is why I could actually see it happening.
