Uptick in Fitzpatrick’s performance mutes urgency for quarterback draft

The Bills won another game Sunday and now have competition for the first pick in next April’s NFL draft. And Ryan Fitzpatrick looked like a Pro-Bowl quarterback in the game’s second half against the Cincinnati, the team that he once played for.

In two short weeks the Bills have gone from a potential 0-16 doormat to a team that is within two games of nine other teams for the league’s worst record (Carolina presently has a 1-9 record).

More impressive turnaround is the recent play of the Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick; whose quarterback rating of 88.1 places him ahead of recent first-round quarterback picks Sam Bradford, Alex Smith, Jay Cutler, and Mark Sanchez. By the way, Fitzpatrick was a 7th round pick in 2005.

All this begs the question: Do the Bills have to draft a quarterback with their first round pick next spring, or continue to build around Fitzpatrick? Stay tuned.
