The transition from college to the pros is never easy for rookie quarterbacks, but in recent years we’ve seen more and more success from youngsters in their first year at the NFL level, particularly with first-round picks. And while expectations are fairly low for EJ Manuel, the only first-rounder taken in 2013 thinks he’ll have a lot of success.
In fact, Manuel said recently that the Buffalo Bills offense under new coach Doug Marrone is “easier to learn” than the offense he ran with Florida State.
“The funny thing is it’s easier to learn than the offense I had at Florida State,” Manuel said on Sirius XM Radio via Pro Football Talk. “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.”
