Bills Draft Peterman in the 5th Round



Sometimes it’s not about when but where you’re drafted.

That could end up being the case with quarterback Nate Peterman.

Despite being mentioned by some as possibly being drafted as high as the second or third round and named by Jon Gruden as the most NFL ready quarterback in the draft, Peterman lasted until the fifth round.

With the 171st overall selection, the Buffalo Bills and GM Doug Whaley (a former Pitt safety) selected Peterman.

Peterman was the eighth quarterback picked in this years draft.

However, the former Pitt star finds himself in a great situation with the Buffalo. Tyrod Taylor is the starter for 2017 but it’s very unlikely he’s the long-term answer.

Taylor is likely just keeping the seat warm until the Bills decide to give another young quarterback the opportunity to win the job.

Will that player be Peterman?
