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
03/16/13 - 2013 Syracuse Pro Day: Representatives from 28 NFL teams gathered at Syracuse’s pro day on March 7, where nine players participated in a workout that was held indoors on FieldTurf. Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix, Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden and New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg were the notable presentatives from NFL teams.
Ryan Nassib, QB (6-foot-2 1/8, 228 pounds) - Nassib stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine. He has 10 1/2-inch hands, which is a really good hand size for a quarterback, especially if he winds up being selected by an outdoor team in the 2013 NFL Draft. Nassib has two visits scheduled with NFL teams. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/07/13 - 2013 Syracuse Pro Day: Nassib is NFLDraftScout.com's fifth-ranked quarterback, but the closely huddled pecking order at the position leaves open the possibility that the top five or six could be valued much higher -- or lower -- by certain teams.
Nassib has enough arm, but has to prove he can land the deep ball consistently. The other big question is whether he'll remain sound of mind in the face of a crumbling pocket. To that end, there are scouts concerned his top-level toughness could lead to poor decisions in that he'll be inclined to play the role of hero -- leading to big hits or interceptions -- rather than live to fight another down. - Jeff Reynolds, The Sports Xchange
03/07/13 - 2013 Syracuse Pro Day: If early bookings in his pre-draft itinerary are any indication, Syracuse senior quarterback Ryan Nassib might not have to leave the state to find a new place to lay his helmet. Before freshening up for a night on the town with Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg -- OK, they're going to dinner -- Nassib completed 69 of 75 passes in a rehearsed throwing session coordinated by former NFL quarterback and assistant coach Ken Anderson and former NFL coordinator Paul Hackett.
Nassib will also meet with the Buffalo Bills, who were represented by general manager Buddy Nix. The Bills drafted eighth, one spot before the Jets. Both teams are expected to be in the market for quarterbacks pending the outcome of free agency. The Bills are now coached by Doug Marrone, who left Syracuse to accept the position in January. The Bengals are another team that reportedly set up a meeting with Nassib. - Jeff Reynolds, The Sports Xchange
03/07/13 - Ryan Nassib was back on the Syracuse campus to work out for 29 NFL teams. Nassib was among 15 former Orange players who worked out at pro day inside Manley Field House. Nassib, the Orange's record-setting quarterback, performed almost flawlessly. He threw 74 passes in a scripted drill to four former teammates - wideouts Alec Lemon and Marcus Sales and tight ends Carl Cutler and David Stevens.
Nassib says he hasn't had much interaction with former Orange coach Doug Marrone, now head coach of the Buffalo Bills. But Bills general manager Buddy Nix has indicated his intention of selecting a quarterback high in the draft, which puts Nassib on their radar. He has a workout scheduled with the team. He's expected to be selected in the first two rounds. - AP Sports
02/27/13 - There's one final tune-up and chance to impress scouts for 13 former Syracuse players hoping to hear their name called during April's NFL Draft. The university will hold its annual pro day on March 7 at Manley Fieldhouse. The event is closed to the public. Pro day is the on-campus, pre-draft workout day run by the university to give draft prospects, including those who already competed at the NFL Scouting Combine earlier this week, an opportunity show off their skills in on-field and conditioning drills. Nassib, Pugh, Thomas and Lemon all earned invites to the combine, and scouts will be anxious to get one last look at Nassib, projected by most analysts to come off the board by the third round. He and Pugh are locks to be drafted, but it's the players hoping to catch the eye of a scout that might benefit the most from pro day. - Nate Mink, Syracuse.com
