What if the Bills could move down to #2 with Giants but keep the 22nd pick?
The Buffalo Bills have tons of draft ammo to move up and land their future franchise quarterback, but what if they could do it and still keep 2 first round draft picks in 2018, as well as their first in 2019?
Right now the Buffalo Bills hold 9 picks in the top 187 picks in the draft. That is a ton of draft ammo considering they have 2 picks in the first round 12, and 22, two in the second round 53 and 56, and two in the third both picks 65 and 96. What if the Bills could somehow make a couple moves and get up to the second pick by losing later picks but still keeping two first rounders?
Let me explain. I was researching Mock Drafts on the web and I was shocked when I found SportsBettingDime’s Mock Draft had the Bills not making just one trade, but three trades to get up to the second pick in the draft. This concept was amazing, and to be honest they still kept draft capital.
Let’s look at this trade scenario. They have the Bills giving up the 12th pick and their 96th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft to get up to the Bears 8th pick.
Then they make another move by giving the Browns their 8th pick acquired from the Bears along with the 53rd pick in the draft and pick 166 to move up to the 4th pick in the draft.
Then they move the 4th pick in the draft and trade it up to the Giants along with their 2nd round pick number 56 and the 65th pick overall to land the 2nd overall pick.
This would leave the Bills with the 2nd pick, 22nd pick, 121st pick, and 187th pick. The Bills would make three trades on draft night, but they would inch up the draft and still walk away with 4 players in the top 187 picks to fill holes. I am a Bills fan as many of you know, but this draft has them taking two of the most dynamic players in the NFL Draft.
They have four QB’s going to the top 10, but Baker Mayfield falls to a team in the AFC East, but is it who you expected?
