Packers Morning Buzz: Mark Murphy likes what he's seen so far
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers and the NFL from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We’ll start with Michael Cohen’s look at the Buffalo Bills for the latest in our opponent preview series.
In a league dominated by quarterbacks, teams without a franchise passer live in a constant state of desperation. Some, like the Cleveland Browns, swing and miss repeatedly through the NFL draft. Others, like the Buffalo Bills, are caught somewhere in the middle with players such as Tyrod Taylor — good enough to win games and (possibly) reach the playoffs, but probably not good enough to make legitimate runs toward a Super Bowl.
So the Bills made the decision to take yet another run at a potential franchise quarterback in this year’s draft. They traded Taylor to the Cleveland Browns for a third-round pick and then traded up on draft day to select Wyoming’s Josh Allen with the No. 7 overall selection.
The Bills are gambling on their ability to maximize the potential of a very divisive draft prospect. At 6-5 and 237 pounds, Allen appears chiseled from quarterback marble. His arm strength, according to early reviews out of Buffalo, is simply incredible.
