Cousins plan is the way to go.  If we got  Edmunds & Hurst in the first that would be awesome really awesome.  I got those 2 as future pro bowlers . Plus Jones and Harrison in the 2nd that's great to.

I'd give up our entire draft just to choose a franchise QB who we can have for 12 years not 5 years. I just want this team to actually hit on that position in the draft. Cousins is a fine QB but it makes me weary that Washington had him in house and didn't think enough of him to resign him to a big deal and Snyder loves blowing his money on players. This isn't just one you can chalk up as poor management, there have been several talking heads who say they wouldn't shell out big bucks for him.

Don't like any of your scenarios or draft choices within the various options.

 

I voted "B" however.

 

People need to tune into the fact that Cousins just isn't that good.  

 

This forum grossly overrates his abilities, probably b/c most Bills fans aren't watching a lot of Skins games.

I'm not sure about the specific players, but if we traded back, got 3 #2s and Lamar Jackson,... that would be exciting.

A, then C. 

 

But I don’t like either any of your picks

That’s where I’m at. The new draft value chart needs to be used.

For anyone still thinking the Bills have a chance to sign Cousins, the Jets have over double the cap space of the Bills. Not going to happen. The Jets will give Cousins an offer he can't refuse.

 

That leaves the Broncos, Cardinals and Bills in the running for Rosen, Allen and Jackson (assuming the Browns take Mayfield and the Giants take Darnold). There's probably a good chance that either the Broncos or Cardinals go the free agent QB or in a trade to get their starting QB (Keenum, McCarron, Foles, Bridgewater). The Bills have a great shot to get one of the top QBs.

 

As very good as everyone thinks this QB class is, there are a lot of serious question marks with each first round QB prospect. I can see a scenario of Allen or Rosen (or both) fall to the Bills at #21. Once the slide starts happening, teams get very nervous to be the one to take a shot on that player. They see all the other teams shying away and think there's a real reason why no ones taking them. With Rosen it's the attitude and concussions, with Allen it's his actual play on the field that's being questioned. What about Lamar Jackson? He's a rare talent and he lights up the field and who will probably be there for them at #21.

Why are we getting a QB in all of these scenarios and in most of them avoiding assets to surround the QB with?  No wide receivers???  I think you that is too much defense for my taste in a year where we are expected to get a QB.  Getting a QB and then avoiding the other needs on offense is setting the QB up for failure.

I think it's bc there just isn't much wr talent in this draft.  Some better free agent options.  Like maybe Paul Richardson. Loaded at rb though.

No disrepsect, but I don’t like any of these.  And the trade compensation to get to 3 is way way way over exaggerated.  Not a chance it will take 3 first rounders and 2 second rounders, nor would Beane ever pay that.  

 

Of all the choices here, Cousins route would be best, but i don’t like who you are mocking as our picks.  I would go Payne/Vita at DT instead then also grab Evans or Edmonds if Evans is gone.  Could also use one of the picks on OL here too

I went with C but have problems with every scenario.

 

A. I've seen Cousins play and always thought he was average. Average shouldn't cost you 30 million per year. I also don't believe that Edmunds will be available at @22 and don't think Phillips will be there that late in the 2nd round.

 

B. 3 Firsts and 2 seconds doesn't sound like something McBeane would do.

 

C. I chose this but doubt Vea, Michel or Vander Esch will be there when we pick.

 

D. Most likely scenario IMO

Using Rich Hills Trade Chart the #2 pick is worth 717.17pts (#21 260.82pts and #22 252.71pts = 513.53pts) 

So basically, 3 #1 draft picks should cover it with perhaps a "sweetner" thrown in - maybe Glenn? maybe another 3rd rd?

But not two more #2 picks certainly

I just dont know if I want to be tied down to Cousins huge contract unless he is a franchise guy.....and there are a lot of differening opinions on that.....

 

Meanwhile......players that we dont get at positions "non qb" can be found throughout the draft and in future drafts....this is supposed to be the draft supposidly where you go looking for your franchise guy

 

Lets get him

For me it's entirely a question of who is available at #3. 

Or for that matter, at 21/22 with regard to trading back.

Yep.  I don't know if we can make this deal until the Giants select at #2.  If would be one of those last second trades.

I like the premise of this poll, but I declined to vote because the options are too specific. 

 

I probably would have gone for option B, with D being a close second, except that I think there are other trade scenarios available to us that I would feel better about. I also wouldn't mind us staying put, but don't necessarily agree with the draft choices.
