While the 2018 NFL Draft is more than two months away, a lot of the talk in Buffalo will surround the Bills' search for a quarterback.

Tyrod Taylor remains the starting quarterback at this time, but the Bills continue to search for an answer for their long-term solution. Taylor may be an option for the Bills yet again, but it will likely only be for another season before the team believes they have found their quarterback of the future.

General manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott may look to the free agent market or the trade block to find a quarterback, but their options may be limited. To sign a player like Kirk Cousins will cost the team a great deal of money and will restrict them from a salary cap perspective. Trading for a franchise quarterback around the NFL may be costly with the Bills having a strong draft capital for the 2018 draft.

The 2018 draft class of quarterbacks has been regarded as one of the best classes in recent memory. There is a potential for six quarterbacks to be selected in the first round of the draft, with four of those signal callers possibly going in the top-10.

The Bills currently sit with the 21st and 22nd overall picks in this year's NFL Draft. Buffalo has the option to stand pat and see if a quarterback they like will fall to them, or they can use that capital to trade up for a chance to select one of the top quarterbacks available.

Two of the top quarterbacks in this year's NFL Draft are Sam Darnold of USC, and Josh Rosen of UCLA. Both quarterbacks are expected to be taken in the top-five of the draft, and some people have mocked the Bills to trade up and try to acquire one of the two quarterbacks.

Pac-12 Networks college football analyst Yogi Roth joined Jeremy White on Thursday morning on WGR, and discussed the outlooks for both Darnold and Rosen moving forward. Roth covered both Darnold and Rosen throughout the 2017 season, and even co-hosted the Season of Sam podcast with Darnold this year.
