Jason Cole of B/R spoke with multiple NFL executives who said that both the Bills and Jets are “extremely” interested in Memphis QB Paxton Lynch.
According to Cole, both teams view Lynch as a future star in the NFL. However, Cole believes they may have to trade up into the early teens in order to get him.
The Browns are also among the teams with interest in Lynch, according to Cole, but they may not be willing to take him at No. 8 overall.
Cole wonders if the Rams and Eagles taking quarterbacks at the top of the draft could prompt a trade up, possibly into the top 10, for Lynch in order to secure their guy.
Earlier in the day, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media wondered if the Saints may consider moving up for Lynch. Rapoport added that New Orleans feels strongly about Lynch, and are a team to watch late in the Top 10 for him.
During his three years at Memphis, Lynch threw for 8,865 yards while completing 62.9 percent of his passes to go along with 59 touchdowns and 23 interceptions. He also contributed 687 yards rushing and 17 rushing touchdowns during this time.
We’ll have more regarding where Lynch could end up as the news is available.
