The Bills were expected to select a quarterback at some point in the 2017 NFL draft, and in the fifth round they finally did.

Buffalo chose Nathan Peterman of Pittsburgh with the 171st overall pick.

The Bills are committed to Tyrod Taylor as their starting quarterback for now, but Peterman is a developmental prospect who could become a starter at some point.

Beyond Taylor the Bills have Cardale Jones, T.J. Yates and Josh Woodrum on the roster at quarterback. Now they can feel free to toss Peterman into the mix.

  1. Great pick. Peterman should develop into Kirk Cousins within the next couple years. Whether that’s a great thing or a crummy thing, you tell me, but it’s definitely not a horrible thing. Plus he comes with a decade worth of Seinfeld jokes.

  2. Beyond Taylor the Bills have Cardale Jones, T.J. Yates and Josh Woodrum on the roster at quarterback…in other words, they have no QB. If my memory is correct, wasn’t Peterman, not too long ago, considered to be the most “NFL ready” of all the QB’s…yikes!

  3. No QB. Your contempt is quite obvious sir. Your dislike for Tyrod is obvious because you don’t realize he’s made the pro bowl 2 years in a row as a starter albeit as an alternate. Doesn’t exactly qualify as “no QB”

  4. Looks to be a good project. Woodrum is gone and Jones can be tried in multiple positions. 3rd round talent picked this late is another part of a great draft by the Bills this year.

  5. I like him better than Chad Kelly, Peterman is very smart, played in a pro system, beat Clemson with 5 TD passes. He is very accurate and a gamer. Arm is not as strong as Chad’s, but this kid can play.

  6. Having seen Peterman play a number of times for Pitt, Buffalo got a good one. Tyrod Taylor is a good young QB in his own right, but Peterman is smart, smooth, accurate, mobile, and highly productive.
    I’ve heard some concerns about his arm strength, but it’s always seemed to me that he has more than adequate arm strength, and throws a very catchable ball.
