"Let me say this: I think there's a time that in the era that you're in and the development of your team, there's a time when you can move up a round to take a quarterback," Nix said on WGR-AM, via the Buffalo News. "And I think the time's now for us.
"I mean, if a guy's there -- I keep saying that, and there'll be one out there -- if the guy's there, then I think we'll target -- as I've said before -- drafting a good quarterback. We need a good, young quarterback, and we're going to do our best to get him."
Nix might be a year too late. He just watched another so-so season from Ryan Fitzpatrick. Last year's draft had far more quality quarterbacks in it. These comments from Nix aren't exactly new, but his aggression in saying them is eye-opening.
Nix also talked about drafting a wide receiver who could help move Stevie Johnson to the slot. Johnson is a solid puzzle piece, but he's not exactly a true No. 1 wideout.
