Recommended Posts

Buffalo Bills  (via Cincinnati Bengals)

Mike McGlinchey

OT

Notre Dame

Analysis: The Bills will do all they can to move up and select a quarterback, but what if they can’t? They lost two starting offensive linemen this offseason and need immediate help up front.

Buffalo Bills

Lamar Jackson

QB

Louisville

Analysis: This is the contingency plan if the Bills can’t move up and draft one of the top three quarterbacks.

Very interesting.  Would much rather have an ILB than a stafety with our 4th pick.  What up with that?

Not a fan of this entire mock LOL.  I see nothing in it that says the team is better.

Buffalo Bills

Round 1 (12): Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma
Round 1 (22): Rashaan Evans, ILB, Alabama
Round 2 (53): Carlton Davis, CB, Auburn
Round 2 (56): Jordan Lasley, WR, UCLA
Round 3 (65): Nathan Shepherd, DT, Fort Hays State
Round 3 (96): Jamarco Jones, OT, Ohio State

 

There is certainly a possibility the Bills package 12 and 22 (with some other picks) to go up and get a higher-ranked QB. If they don't, they have six picks in the top 96 to help a roster that has some areas of need. Mayfield is the most experienced QB in this class and would likely compete for the starting job with AJ McCarron. Evans is a solid linebacker with good pass-rush skills. Davis would provide insurance if the Vontae Davis signing doesn't work. Lasley has first-round abilities at wideout, but has fallen because of off-field issues. Shepherd is a good small-school player and could help fill the hole left by trading Marcell Dareus. Jones provides help on an O-line that lost Cordy Glennin a trade.

MJDs mock draft has the Bills trading up to 5th and taking Allen while Denver gets Mayfield at 12 and Payne at 22. That would just suck imo, would much rather have Mayfield and Payne(or someone) than just Allen. 

   Don't put any stock in all these mocks but that scenario would particularly suck I think.

Mayfield at 12 would be fabulous, but probably not realistic.

Buffalo Bills

Round 1 (12): Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia Tech
Round 1 (22): Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville
Round 2 (53): Anthony Miller, WR, Memphis
Round 2 (56): Billy Price, C/G, Ohio State
Round 3 (65): Carlton Davis, CB, Auburn
Round 3 (96): Daurice Fountain, WR, Northern Iowa

 

So let's assume Buffalo keeps all of these six of these, which I don't think is likely. (Remember: No trades in the "Grade: A" mock!) The Bills have the picks to move up for a quarterback if they want, but they also have the picks to plug holes on a flawed roster.

 

In this scenario, the Bills get two of the draft's best athletes with their first two picks. Edmunds and Jackson are both raw, but they have the upside to be Pro Bowl players. And with AJ McCarron on the roster, Jackson wouldn't have to start in Week 1. Miller and Price could step in and play immediately. Buffalo added Vontae Davis on a one-year deal but needs another corner opposite Tre'Davious White. Fountain is an under-the-radar big-play threat who had 12 touchdowns as a senior in 2017.

Hurst at 22? Sure.  Rudolph at 12 or anywhere in round 1 is horrid.

I'd be pissed if we didn't take Kirk at 53 in this scenario. Steal.

5. Buffalo Bills (trade with Broncos) – UCLA QB Josh Rosen

Bills determined to trade up and get their QB; Broncos net a bushel of picks.

12. Buffalo Bills (from Bengals): Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma

The Bills paying AJ McCarron backup-type money and trading into this spot while also holding the No. 22 overall pick suggests they are making a strong play for franchise quarterback early, either by trading up again or staying put. Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott from their days in Carolina should be well aware of how far a defense, a running game and a dual-threat QB can take a team. Mayfield has the "it" factor to finally give Buffalo a long-term solution.

 

22. Buffalo Bills (from Chiefs): Leighton Vander Esch, ILB, Boise State

The Bills can continue their Panthers copycatting with this pick after getting their Heisman-winning QB earlier in the draft. McDermott needs someone to fly to the ball in the Luke Kuechly/Thomas Davis vein, as Lorenzo Alexander, who turns 35 in May, is their best linebacker.

4. (TRADE) Buffalo Bills - QB Josh Rosen, UCLA - This is a projected trade, as the Bills send the No. 12, No. 22 and a second round selection to the Browns to move up to No. 4. It might take even more than that, like a first-round pick in 2019 instead of the lone second rounder. Or even two second round picks.

 

If we look at the passers the Bills recently moved on from (Tyrod Taylor) and acquired (Nathan Peterman and A.J. McCarron), it appears the Bills want a prototypical pocket passer. Rosen is easily the best quarterback that fits that label. Josh Allen might as well. The Bills seemed to be interested in last year’s quarterback class (maybe Mitchell Trubisky specifically) and likely plan to not be near the top of the draft for years. Shoot your quarterback shot now.

5.) BUFFALO BILLS - Josh Allen (QB, Wyoming)
***Trade with Denver - Bills give up 12, 22, 53, 2019 4th***

 

COMMENT: With Allen falling out of the top-four, the Bills have a chance to grab one of their top-rated quarterbacks and make a deal with the Broncos to make sure they get him. They could sit at No. 12 and he might still be there, but with the Dolphins and Cardinals also wanting quarterbacks, they make sure they don’t let that happen. They also still retain a second round pick (56) and both third rounders (65 and 96) in this year’s draft, allowing them to still fill needed holes on the roster. For the Broncos, John Elway wants a quarterback for the future, but after signing Case Keenum, he doesn’t need to grab one yet. By moving down, he can pick up another non-quarterback who can help his team win now, which is what they plan to do in 2018.
