Buffalo Bills

1 4 Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma from CLE/HOU
1 12 Traded to Cleveland from CIN
1 22 Isaiah Wynn, G, Georgia from KC
2 34 D.J. Moore, WR, Maryland from NYG
2 53 Darius Leonard, LB, South Carolina State  
2 56 Traded to New York Giants from LAR
3 65 Traded to New York Giants from CLE
3 96 Traded to Cleveland from PHI
4 121 Auden Tate, WR, Florida State  
5 166 Kalen Ballage, RB, Arizona State from JAC
6 187 Traded to Minnesota from CIN
6 204 Christian Campbell, CB, Penn State from MIN
6 218 Jason Cabinda, LB, Penn State from MIN

After quarterbacks go 1-2-3, the Bills trade up to No. 4 by giving the Browns No. 12, No. 96 and their 2019 first-rounder, a pick that I think would appeal to the Browns more than No. 22 this year. It's a similar price to what the Chiefs paid the Bills last year to move from No. 27 to No. 10 for Patrick Mahomes, and though this is a shorter jump in terms of total spots, it's more expensive to move up early in the draft. Mayfield has a sneaky-good chance to be the best QB out of this class.

By trading next year's first, the Bills are free to use No. 22 on the best guard prospect this year outside of Quenton Nelson. The Bills move up in the second round by trading No. 56 and No. 65 to the Giants to land D.J. Moore, who will be an immediate weapon out of the slot and give Mayfield a target monster out of the gate. After the two trades, the Bills are left with just one more Day 2 pick, which they use on a talented linebacker to add to a mediocre unit.

A trade-up for Moore shouldn't prevent the team from continuing to attack their lack of depth at receiver, so they come back and grab a big weapon in Tate who could be a factor in the red zone. Ballage gives depth at running back, especially someone who can spell LeSean McCoy on third down when needed, and a potential return man. In the sixth round, the Bills trade back before landing two depth pieces on defense.

With under a week to go before the NFL Draft actually starts, Joe B., Matthew Fairburn of NYUpstate.com, and Tyler Dunne of Bleacher Report all got together for a POD MOCK. Teams were evenly distributed between the trio, with trade negotiations very much allowed for this audio mock draft. What do the Bills do? Where do the QBs go? Listen for yourself, including some interesting discussion about LeSean McCoy... and even talk of another giveaway for fans.
