The Bills went into this draft with EJ firmly placed in their sights. While most thought they would go with Geno or Nassib early, they moved down in the first and still got their guy. Manuel is an intriguing guy from a fantasy standpoint based on the fact that he can run and sling the rock. He is a project a la Kaepernick and may take some time to develop. The Bills have Kevin Kolb there already and Manuel could sit behind him if he doesn’t pick up things right away. Kolb is a major injury risk and an average QB anyway, so Manuel will get his shot this season, it just remains to be seen when.
Greg Cosell said Manuel is the only QB in this class that can be successful with the ‘read option’, so the Bills may implement that offense to highlight his skill set. He does have solid veteran WR Stevie Johnson, stud RB CJ Spiller, and fellow rookie WR Robert Woods to operate with, so the offense has a chance to be dynamic. It will depend how fast he and Woods can get on the field and be productive, but Manuel is a guy I will be keeping an eye on in training camp.
