Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said QB EJ Manuel needs to work on all parts of his game to become a better quarterback. "He's a young man that's got to work on a lot of things from footwork to progressions to plays to formations, everything. Defenses in the NFL are obviously a little different. He's got to work on that too. He's got to work on everything," Hackett said.

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel said it has been easy to pick up the team's offense, which he said is less complicated than the system he learned at Florida State. "The funny thing is it's easier to learn than the offense I had at Florida State," he said. "It's a true West Coast-type progression offense. That's really what I wanted when I was coming through the pre-draft process. I wanted something that I could just go in and say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, check it down and run it. That's it, it's that simple. I love it." Manuel has spent extensive time working with offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.
Fantasy Tip: Manuel will compete with Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson for the starting QB job this summer. If Manuel wins it, consider him a weak backup quarterback in just his rookie season. Manuel could be a decent signal caller in the long term, but Buffalo will need a proven receiver opposite Stevie Johnson in order to make a significant impact.

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone indicated Tuesday, April 30, that the team's research indicated they needed a strong-armed quarterback that could handle poor or wet weather conditions like the weather in Buffalo in the fall and winter. When the team worked out QB EJ Manuel in private, the weather was not cooperative. There were thunderstorms, and it was windy, in Tallahassee, but Manuel performed well. That solidified the team's feelings Manuel could do well in poor weather.

Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix said one of the reasons the team selected QB EJ Manuel was his strong arm, which will help him in Buffalo. "I've said this before, I think you need to be able to play in the wind and the cold," Nix said. "He's got huge hands, and he's really strong. As far as arm strength, he might depend on that a little too much. He may need some refining as far as some touch. But as far as arm strength, there's no question. He is a huge man."

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said QB EJ Manuel will be part of the competition for the starting quarterback job during training camp.
Fantasy Tip: Manuel will be competing with Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson for the starting job and could win the starting job if he does well during training camp and the preseason. He would be a weak No. 2 quarterback or a flier pick as a No. 3 quarterback if he does start Week 1.
