Bills worked out Mitchell Trubisky

The Bills signed quarterback Tyrod Taylor to a new contract that runs through the 2018 season early this offseason and they have followed up that move by doing their homework on this year’s draft prospects at the position.

They set up a private workout with Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that the Bills put North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky through his paces at a workout on Sunday.

As a picture shared by North Carolina co-offensive coordinator Gunter Brewer shows, head coach Sean McDermott and team owner Terry Pegula were among the Bills personnel at the workout. Trubisky has drawn plenty of attention on the pre-draft circuit as teams figure out how early they’d be willing to pull the trigger on a player with one year of collegiate starting experience under his belt.

The Bills have the 10th pick in the first round and could also consider Clemson’s Deshaun Watson and Notre Dame’s Deshone Kizer along with Mahomes and Trubisky as the potential successor to Taylor.

  1. I suppose by definition, if you’re a QB for the Bills…you’re competing for a starting job.

  2. Trubisky has “the next Ryan Tannehill” written all over him. He only started 12 games in college and nobody seems to know anything else about him. Buffalo should be looking at Watson. Watson had 30+ starts, a ring, and is very smart. He’s seen every defense that can be schemed up and is the type of guy you want leading a franchise.

  3. Bills look set at QB going into this draft with Taylor, Yates, and Jones. They should only pick a QB 4th round or later if a good prospect lasts that long. Bigger needs with the early picks in a draft that is rich in defensive backs and WR/TE’s.

  4. QBs from top college programs often are more often than not busts in the NFL because they were a product of the best coached teams full of pro ready players compared to the opposition. Look at all those Heisman busts and QBs from championship teams. You can’t judge a player based on his TEAM’S success in college. If that was the case, then the U$C QBs, Florida teams, Urban Meyer, and Nick Saban QBs would be in elite QBs in the NFL.

  5. (1) The Bills could always trade up for Trubisky (or another QB) as well. They don’t have to sit back at 10.

    (2) Ryan Tannehill is a terrible comparison to Trubisky. Watch Trubisky’s superior arm strength, accuracy and throwing motion. I don’t see the two as comparable prospects in the least.

    Pat Mahomes from Texas Tech is the best QB prospect in the draft, wait and see. He is Derick Carr. And Mahomes has a stronger arm than Trubisky.
