Determining who the quarterback of the future will be has been a hot topic among Bills fans, but that player may be the man under center right now. Ryan Fitzpatrick, who will be 28 years old on Nov. 24, is entering the prime of his career and has shown ability to be competitive during his time as a starter. Buffalo is likely going to have a very high draft pick based on its record, and taking QBs at the top of the draft is a long-term and very expensive investment. Unless a player jumps out at the team's decision makers — owner Ralph Wilson, GM Buddy Nix and head coach Chan Gailey — as "can't miss," expect the Bills to turn their attention to addressing holes on the offensive line and defensive front seven early on in the draft and stick with Fitzpatrick at quarterback, maybe drafting a signalcaller in a middle round to develop long-term.
