Still waiting to be drafted- Ryan Nassib's wait heads into Round 2

Many football fans expected Doug Marrone and the Buffalo Bills to select Marrone's former star quarterback at Syracuse Ryan Nassib in the first round of the NFL Draft.
The Bills took a quarterback, but rather than Nassib, it was E.J. Manuel of Florida State.
"I donâ??t think I was very conflicted. 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." said Marrone of choosing Manuel over Nassib.
So the waiting game continues for Nassib who broke many passing records at Syracuse.
Ryan though, may not have to wait very long to be chosen as Jacksonville, Philadelphia, and Arizona own the 1st, 4th, and 6th picks of the 2nd round respectively. All of those teams could use help at quarterback.
Going to Philadelphia would be a dream come true for Nassib who grew up near Philadelphia rooting for the Eagles and their last Syracuse quarterback Donovan McNabb.
The 2nd round of the draft starts at 6:30 p.m. on ESPN.
