Bills GM: Allen begins as No. 3 QB

Buffalo obtained Allen in two steps.

The biggest question about the strong-armed Allen entering the draft was his accuracy. In the 2017 campaign, he threw for just 1,812 yards on 56.3 percent completion rate with 16 touchdown passes and six interceptions in 11 games played. But first, the Wyoming product has to focus on the present - and that includes setting things right with his new teammates about racially insensitive tweets he wrote as a teenager.

He has repeatedly apologized for the posts, while saying he was "young and dumb" in parroting rap lyrics and catchphrases from TV and pop culture.

ESPN reported the tweets were removed from Allen's account when it was vetted in January. Beane said the team did their due diligence on Allen regarding this situation. He was named a First-Team All-Pro selection that year. He becomes the heir apparent to replace Tyrod Taylor.

Buffalo has openings along the offensive line after center Eric Wood was diagnosed with a career-ending neck injury in January, and after left guard Richie Incognito's abrupt retirement.

The Bills also moved down in last year's draft to get a second first-rounder this year via Kansas City, and then moved back up when the exceptional Tremaine Edmunds was available at 16.

FY2018 EPS Estimates for Marathon Oil Lifted by Analyst (MRO)
Raymond James Financial Services Advisors Inc. lifted its holdings in shares of Marathon Petroleum by 3.2% during the 4th quarter. Furthermore, F&V Capital Management Llc reported 306,085 shares in Marathon Oil Corp equivalent to 2.69% of its fund portfolio.

After all the hype and excitement for the 2018 NFL Draft, it is finally over. Thursday night they traded two second round picks to select who they believe will be their franchise quarterback.

With their sixth round pick the Bills took wide receiver Ray Ray McCloud from Clemson. He led the Cowboys to the Mountain Division title in the Mountain West Conference and helped Wyoming earn the right to host the 2016 MW Championship Game.

At 6-foot-4, 314 pounds, Teller has the size and power to make an impact in the NFL.

For example, I had Lamar Jackson going to the Baltimore Ravens earlier in the first round, but I received credit for him going to the Ravens with the 32nd pick in the first round. If I want to make that transition from college to the National Football League, it's basically like switching a position.

Peterman started two games for the Bills last season, and the team went 1-1 in those starts.

Alexander said the Bills established a strong leadership group past year in confronting various issues - from a major roster overhaul to finding consensus on how to handle anthem protests.
