What the 2018 Buffalo Bills 90-man depth chart could look like entering training camp

Recommended Posts

One scenario of thousands. Please add your thoughts.

 

These are just my initial ideas on how I could see the offseason panning out. I usually stay away from Bills related forums between the Super Bowl and the Masters in April (aside from the first few days of free agency) so I wanted to get this created before Sunday. It's obviously way too early to determine draft order and it may not be realistic to acquire this many free agents (even though none will break the bank). I expect Bradford to simply take over Tyrod's cap space. And this scenario is with the (probably too optimistic) hope that the NFL relieves Eric Wood's contract from our cap based on the rare happenstance that occurred.

 

2018 Pre-6/1 Checklist

 

  • Retain 2018 RFA's: TE Nick O'Leary, DE Eddie Yarbrough, CB Lafayette Pitts
  • Work with NFL and NFLPA to remove Eric Wood's contract from the 2018 salary cap
  • Trade QB Tyrod Taylor for a 2018 4th round pick
  • Sign FA's: QB Sam Bradford, WR Paul Richardson, TE Ed Dickson, DT Daquan Jones, MLB Korey Toomer, OLB Tahir Whitehead, CB Ross Cockrell
  • Trade DE Shaq Lawson for a 2018 4th-round pick

 

2018 NFL Draft

 

1 (21). Orlando Brown, OT, Oklahoma
1 (22). Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa
2 (53). Mike White, QB, Western Kentucky
2 (56). Sam Hubbard, DE, Ohio State
3 (95). Fred Warner, LB, USC
4 (112). Troy Fumagalli, TE, Wisconsin
4 (117). Austin Corbett, OG, Nevada
4 (125). Quadree Henderson, WR, Pittsburgh
5 (164). BJ Hill, DT, NC State
5 (172). Darrel Williams, RB, LSU

 

2018 Post-6/1 Plans

 

  • Trade OT Cordy Glenn for a 2019 mid-round pick ($11.25 cap savings)
  • Release FB Patrick Dimarco ($1.55 cap savings)
  • Release WR Andre Holmes ($1.2 cap savings)
  • Sign FA's: RB Alfred Blue, WR Michael Campanaro, G/C Brian Schwenke, DT Shamar Stephen, CB Leonard Johnson
  • Re-sign RB Travaris Cadet, SS Shamarko Thomas

It's just too early to spend this much energy on this topic. No offense but are you looking for people to propose their 90? I think random FA talk and Mock Drafts are enough to play with. Combining those and coming up with day 1 training camp rosters is a bit much for now.

It would take me a better part of a day just to type all of this.

 

So far, I like picking up DT Daquan Jones.

Not so sure about White that early.

 

If Orlando Brown doesn't beat Mills, let me be the 1st to call 'bust'. :-)

Some of it is a little out there, like getting a 4th for Taylor and spending that much FA money. 

 

However, I do like targeting Bradford and Cockrell.

I like Mike White a whole lot... But Rd 2??? -I don't see it...

 

Three, maybe even four... He's never generated the kind of buzz he probably deserves.

Cockrell starting CB??? No thanks.

 

Resign  EJ Gaines is #1 priority for the Bills this offseason.

I really dont want to lose Gaines

 

 

I just had a feeling that he never really bought it to being in Buffalo. The recent Instagram confirms that. His loss.

Yeah I'm not sure either but he was impressive from what I saw in the Senior Bowl fwiw.

Why not Cockrell? He's a good value player.

 

Gaines is injury prone and appears to not want to be here.

If the Chiefs can get a 3rd and a stud second-year corner on a 3rd round contract for a 35 year old Alex Smith, you don't think Bills can get a 4th for Tyrod?

Cockrell would be less expensive for roughly the same production. So, yes.

No way I don’t see it. No way Cockrell is as productive as EJ Gaines.

What's your argument? Cockell had more interceptions, more passes defended and a higher Approximate Value than Gaines in 2017.

No argument. I just don’t see how Ross Cockrell can be more productive than EJ Gaines. I think a lot of people on here would agree.

I welcome disagreements, I just prefer them based on something. Cockrell is a good, durable player (one game missed in last three years) that we can get for less than $9.3 million annually.
