The Buffalo Bills have been making drastic changes since Rex Ryan became head coach this off-season. Now the speculation begins that he has already given up on E.J. Manuel.

Last year, former head coach Doug Marrone gave up on Manuel and made Kyle Orton the team’s starting signal caller. It doesn’t appear like the team will deal him over the weekend, but anything is possible with the team lying right now.

According to sources, the Bills would like to draft Bryce Petty in the second round. However, things can change that if he is no longer there and another team selected him.

Petty is considered the third or fourth best quarterback in the draft, depending on who you ask. The team is hoping that he’s still available tomorrow, because they do not have a first rounder.

That pick went to the Cleveland Browns, which is one of their two first rounders. This deal allowed the Bills to move up and select Sammy Watkins last year; however, it caused a rift between the team’s front office and Marrone, who did not want to select Watkins.

The 23-year-old’s stock is rising just hours before the draft. The New Orleans Saints, who are considering drafting a quarterback for when Drew Brees retires, are also seriously considering Petty.

The two independent sources have confirmed that Petty will likely go to one of these two teams.

If he went to the Bills, he would likely be the back-up to Matt Cassel, who is expected to be the starter next season. That would give Petty time to learn, before taking over the job in 2016.
