Bills Sign Rookie Cardale Jones

The Bills have now signed every rookie in their 2016 class after inking fourth-round pick Cardale Jones. The Ohio State quarterback, who was taken with the No. 139 overall selection, knows that he may have to wait awhile before he can see real playing time. Cardale Jones (vertical)

I am going in here knowing that that Tyrod [Taylor] is our starter,” Jones told Chris Brown of “I am going in here knowing that EJ [Manuel] is our backup. I am going in here learning, working as hard as I can working with Coach [David] Lee in the film room, on and off the field. Whatever happens after that I guess is just a product of great circumstances.”

Jones is undefeated as a college starter with a perfect 11-0 record, but he only threw a total of 270 passes while with the Buckeyes. Prior to the draft, one NFL offensive coordinator told that Jones has more physical tools than Teddy Bridgewater and Derek Carr, but he “can’t touch their poise and leadership as young quarterbacks.”

Here’s the complete rundown of the Bills’ 2016 draft class:

    I’d say he will be a bust but I don’t think there are any expectations for him to succeed in the NFL. Maybe one day, if he works hard, he will develop into a below average backup QB.

    • Kind of seems like a Vince Young to me. Potential to be an okay starting qb, but needs a lot of work.
