Sports on Earth's Russ Lande tweeted he spoke with one NFL "higher up" who said none of the QBs in the 2014 class are as good as Ryan Nassib.
Lande later clarified that this NFL personnel member does not work for the Giants. The former NFL scout turned writer listed Nassib as the No. 1 quarterback and player in last year's draft class. Our own Josh Norris prefers at least four quarterbacks in the 2014 group to Nassib. Wed, Feb 19, 2014 10:57:00 AM

Giants traded up to select Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib with the No. 110 overall pick, sending Nos. 116 and 187 to the Cardinals.

Projected by many to come off the board at No. 8 overall, Nassib settles for a competition with David Carr to be Eli Manning's backup. Nassib (6-foot-2 1/8, 227) was a three-year starter in Doug Marrone's shotgun-heavy, up-tempo Syracuse offense, completing 60.3 percent of his passes with a 70:28 TD-to-INT ratio. Rated the No. 1 quarterback in this class by draft gurus Russ Lande and Greg Cosell, Nassib flashes NFL-quality anticipation and can drive the ball at the intermediate level. He is the draft's most accurate passer, and has the quickest release. Nassib's big negatives are his tendency to become frenetic in the pocket and let his deep ball sail.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora writes that Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib is "definitely" in play for the Buffalo Bills at No. 8.

This is expected simply because the Bills hired Nassib's college coaches to run the show. Head coach Doug Marrone has great familiarity with Nassib for that reason and could very well select him at the pick. The Bills clearly need a quarterback of the future and Nassib could be it.

NFL insider Adam Caplan says there is "no way" the Bills select Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib with the No. 8 pick.

Caplan says the realistic option would be to trade up from the second-round "as I noted months ago." We wouldn't rule out the Nassib selection at No. 8, as there have been surprise quarterback selections in the early part of the first-round.

NFL Network's Kurt Warner said he doesn't find Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib "overly impressive on film."

"Watching film of this guy — not overly impressive on film," Warner said. "If you’re drafting a quarterback in the first round, you’re drafting a franchise quarterback, a guy who you believe can win Super Bowls for you. Otherwise, why draft a guy that high? You need a guy that can do everything, and I didn’t see on film this guy having the ability to do everything. He didn’t wow me when I saw him on film. I want to see that wow factor from a guy I’m drafting in the first round, and I just didn’t see it from Ryan," Warner said.

One NFL team executive said this draft could be one of the "worst" in some time.

"When we look back at this draft in five or 10 years," said the team executive, "we might view it as one of the worst we've seen in some time." He added, "There will be 13-15 players picked in the first round that are true first-rounders. That's a fairly low number." This draft is indeed lacking in top players, but it's debatable whether it could be one of the worst. That kind of statement can be made about any draft, as we truly don't know who will or won't pan out.

Pro Football Talk reports Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib will be dining with the Arizona Cardinals April 15.

"He’ll dine with a group that includes coach Bruce Arians, G.M. Steve Keim, and director of player personnel Jason Licht," Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio wrote. The Cardinals are unlikely to select a quarterback in the first round, as they have bigger priorities, but could look to select one in the second. Provided Nassib is available, he could be the selection.

ESPN's Rich Cimini has been told the Jets like Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib.

"In fact, Mornhinweg and Nassib -- a couple of guys with a Philly connection -- dined together in Syracuse after his pro day," Cimini writes. "He probably won't last until 39, not with the quarterback-needy Bills and Jaguars picking ahead of them, so the Jets would have to trade up." We believe there's a chance Nassib and EJ Manuel join Geno Smith in the first-round.

Teams believe the Bills are targeting Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib at pick No. 41, accoridng to NFL Network's Albert Breer.

Other teams "are saying if you want (Nassib), gotta get him 40 or higher," Breer tweeted. The fit is obvious and the connection has been made since the Bills hired Nassib's college coach Doug Marrone, but there appears to be a growing buzz that the Syracuse quarterback could be a late first-round selection.

Buffalo worked out Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib on Saturday.

The Bills staff is obviously very familiar with Nassib, since Doug Marrone coached the signal at the college level. We like Nassib in the intermediate passing game, where he is most decisive, but there are concerns with his frenetic pocket movement and vertical ability. There's a definite chance he goes in the first-round.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell said Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib is an "intermediate" thrower.

"What he does really well, Nassib, he's an intermediate thrower. He throws the ball with great velocity, power, at the intermediate level," Cosell said. "Now he's a bit of a hitch thrower and I think that' something he's working on. In fact, I've talked to people that something he's working on very, very hard through this now off-season leading up to the draft. Where he can plant and throw opposed to hitch. Because sometimes it looks like he's working hard to make throws. He's not necessarily an easy thrower but he does throw the ball extremely well at the intermediate levels, very good accuracy and he does throw with anticipation. That's something that's noticeable on film.

Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib has private workouts scheduled with the Browns, Jaguars, and Bills, along with a visit to Cardinals headquarters next week.

Nassib's workout with Browns will be attended by coach Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner, while his workout with the Jaguars will be viewed by G.M. Dave Caldwell, coach Gus Bradley, and offensive coordinator Jeff Fisch. The Browns currently do not have a second-round pick, so their interest is intriguing.

Per WGR 550 SportsRadio's Joe Buscaglia, the Buffalo Bills will work out Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib.

Nassib has been the common pick for the Bills ever since they hired his former college head coach, Doug Marrone, to the same position. Nassib has upside, is accurate and tools to work with but needs to improve his footwork. He and the Bills would be a good fit for obvious reasons, one of which is a simple schematic transition -- an important aspect of quarterbacking and one that many young signal-callers struggle with.

Despite acquiring Kevin Kolb, SI's Peter King still believes the Bills will select a QB in the first- or second-round of April's draft.

The two most logical selections appear to be Geno Smith in the first or Ryan Nassib in the second. The connection to the latter will be very hard to forget, but new head coach Doug Marrone also coached against Geno Smith. Both have been ranked as the top quarterback in this class by certain evaluators.

Former NFL GM Charley Casserly believes Syracuse's Ryan Nassib is the second best prospect at his position.

"I like his arm strength and he has shown he can put the ball in tight spots," Casserly writes. "I have seen him make good decisions and spread the ball around in a pro-style offense. He possesses good touch on deep balls, too, displaying an ability to shuffle in the pocket and keep his eyes downfield to find the open target." Casserly went on to note he rates Nassib as a second rounder.
