Doug Marrone, the former Syracuse head coach who was hired this winter to do the same for the Buffalo Bills, is feeling bittersweet about his first selection in the this year's NFL Draft: Florida State QB EJ Manuel.

Bills' GM Buddy Nix and Marrone both agreed the Bills needed to start over at QB and made the decision to take Manuel over Ryan Nassib, Marrone's QB at Syracuse, to lead their club into the future. Many felt that player would be Nassib, but the Bills needed to start this new chapter in their history with the right player under center.

"I don?t think I was very conflicted," Marrone said when asked about taking Manuel over Nassib. "I think that at the end of the day there are a lot of good quarterbacks in the draft and we were able to take the best quarterback that we felt fit us here in our situation in Buffalo."
