On Tuesday night, Jones spoke to SiriusXM NFL Radio and told the hosts that he had an idea that he'd be drafted by team. Leading up to the draft, Bills head coach Rex Ryan told the quarterback that the Bills had every intention of drafting him if they had the chance.


After addressing the front seven with their first three picks, the Bills turned their attention to offense. At pick 139, Jones was still on the board and Ryan made good on his promise to the former Ohio State Buckeye.

In Buffalo, Jones won't face any pressure to play immediately. In fact, he's expected to be Buffalo's third string quarterback in 2016 behind Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel. The Bills can take their time working with Jones as they attempt to develop him into a franchise QB.
