Bills have 'strong interest' in Trubisky?

If Trubisky is still available at 10, Sporting News' Eric Galko predicts he will go to the Bills

NFL Draft expert and Sporting News writer Eric Galko threw out a juicy rumor on Monday that Bills fans can chew on leading up to next weeks NFL Draft. 

In his "What I've Heard" column, this is what Galko had to say about the Bills and Trubisky.
 

If there’s one strong quarterback-team connection, it’s Trubisky and the Bills. They’ve had strong interest throughout the season and draft process, and they actually were one of the teams he looked to for advisement when he was making his decision to declare for the draft. While I don’t believe the Jets will draft a quarterback, the Bills might trade with the Titans to ensure they can get to Trubisky before New York. I would be surprised if they target a different quarterback, but they’ve done their due diligence on all of them.
 

This comes a week after Bills owner Terry Pegula, head coach Sean McDermott, and general manager Doug Whaley were all on hand for a private workout with Trubisky down in Chapel Hill. That adds some validity to the rumor, although the Bills have worked out all the top quarterbacks except Deshaun Watson. 

The biggest reason this rumor wouldn't come to fruition is Trubisky falling to the 10th pick. Galko also brings up that the 49ers have Trubisky rated high, and that even the Jaguars could be thinking about taking him. That doesn't even mention the Browns at the first overall pick, who have been linked to Trubisky as well. 

Trubisky has only started one year at North Carolina, so the sample size is small making him a risky pick so early. He als, does not have great awareness in the pocket or consistency throwing deep. However, he has the tools needed, physically and athletically, to be a quality NFL starting quarterback. 

Galko will be on WGR this Friday at 4 p.m. with Schopp and the Bulldog to discuss the matter further.
