Every year after the NFL draft, discussions often revolve around what rookies can bring to their respective teams. It’s certainly a worthy conversation, but just as important can be the development of the players entering their sophomore seasons.

That is very true for the Bills, who have eight 2013 draft picks returning to the team along with two key undrafted free agents, Jeff Tuel and Nickell Robey.

This year’s look at the Bills’ second-year players begins with Tuel, who was signed by the team out of Washington State and went on to start a game last year.

Logan Thomas has the best physical tools of any quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Physically reminiscent of Carolina Panthers star and 2011 No. 1 overall pick Cam Newton, the Virginia Tech quarterback has a combination of size, athleticism and arm strength that is unmatched in this year’s draft class.

But while Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater, Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, UCF’s Blake Bortles and Fresno State’s Derek Carr are all being viewed as potential top-10 draft picks, grades on Thomas have ranged everywhere from the second round to undrafted free agency.

If the Buffalo Bills (3-5) are going to pull off a surprising upset and hand the Kansas City Chiefs (8-0) their first loss of the season, they are going to have to do with their third starting quarterback of the season. With EJ Manuel (LCL sprain) and Thad Lewis (bruised ribs) both inactive for Sunday’s game due to injury, the Bills are turning to Jeff Tuel, an undrafted rookie, to take the reins of the Bills offense under center in Week 9.
