Gailey says QB not in draft picture

Bills coach Chan Gailey said the team is not in the market for a quarterback at the top of the NFL Draft.

"You can talk to Buddy (Nix) about that, but I don't believe that's anywhere in the thought process," Gailey told reporters today at his news briefing.

The statement is no surprise. The Bills just gave Ryan Fitzpatrick a big contract extension in October. It has plenty of other needs. And the Bills are not likely to be in position to pick one of the top quarterbacks in the draft. If the Bills win one of their last three games and finish 6-10, they likely will pick outside the top 12. If they lose out and finish 5-11, they're not likely to pick higher than eighth. The top three QBs, if they elect to enter the draft, are likely to go in the top seven. Stanford's Andrew Luck is probably the top-rated prospect. Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III of Baylor and USC's Ma tt Barkley will be highly sought, presuming they leave college.
