Draft Scout Ryan Nassib News
04/28/13 - Marrone, who passed on drafting Ryan Nassib, whom he coached at Syracuse and has great admiration for, was elated that Nassib was selected in the fourth round by New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin, who has Syracuse ties and who Marrone considers one of his mentors. "I won't lie," Marrone said. "I'm very happy and happier they're in the NFC." - The Sports Xchange

04/25/13 - DANE BRUGLER'S FINAL 2013 DRAFT BOARD: 40. QB Ryan Nassib, Syracuse (6-2, 227, 5SR)...The second QB on the board, Nassib's touch and accuracy tend to waver. But he is a strong-armed passer with the feet, smarts and mentality to be an NFL starter. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
04/25/13 - ROB RANG'S FINAL 2013 NFL DRAFT BIG BOARD: 48. Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse: Nassib wasn't as impressive at the Senior Bowl as I had hoped for, but he possesses the combination of physical traits -- including a strong arm and functional mobility in the pocket -- as well as intangibles to win over scouts and coaches, alike. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
04/24/13 - Kurt Warner might not think much of Ryan Nassib's quarterbacking skills but that might not matter to several QB-needy teams with picks early in the first round. Specifically: The Bills, who hold the eighth-overall selection and are in dire need of a franchise quarterback, could be in the Nassib business. (It doesn't hurt that first-year coach Doug Marrone was Nassib's coach at Syracuse). The predraft monkey wrench: the Jets, with selections No. 9 and No. 13, like Nassib a lot, too.
This is the latest speculation, anyway, courtesy of ESPN's Sal Paolantonio, who reported Wednesday that the Bills believe that the Jets have legitimate interest in Nassib. And if Buffalo doesn't take him eighth overall, New York would have three chances to get him (the aforementioned ninth and 13th selections, as well as pick No. 39) before the Bills go back on the clock with pick No. 41.
This is no doubt part of the smoke-screening that goes on in the days leading up to the draft, where obfuscation rules and the truth is scarce. That said, if the Bills truly like Nassib, they'll have to decide if he's worth a top-10 pick, or if the organization would instead be comfortable facing him twice a year should he end up with the Jets.
SalPal also reports that new Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is "very high" on Nassib, which could be more smoke-screening or a clear signal that the Mark Sanchez era in New York is officially on its last legs. - Ryan Wilson, CBSSports.com
