Would you trade up to pick #3 and give up the following to keep pick #22? 

 

Picks #12, #53, #56 and #65 = #3 overall

 

We would still have #3, #22, #96, #121, #166 and #187, so basically no 2nd rounders. I am not sure Indy would do it, because I think they want that #22 (we still could trade down because that is a hot spot for trading back). We could grab a killer LB and still maybe land another starter in rounds 3-4.

Yes I would do it.  I would also do the opposite and give #12, #22 and #65 and keep our 2nds.  Just go get our QB is all that matters.

I would rather use next year's picks in some way so that we retain a 2nd this year, but, yes, I've been thinking that this may be Beane's plan...trying to keep 22 while moving up.

I think teams are going to want next year's first over 22 this year.  They are going to bank on the Bills being worse next year.

We are going to get our pants pulled down to our ankles because we HAVE to move up. Snidely Whiplash laugh on the other end of the line when we make the call.

I agree with this.

I would also trade Next years first, #22, #53 and #65. That way we keep this years#12

This is exactly why I posted this. If we kept Glen past June 1st he would have fetched a 1st rounder to replace our pick. I am betting we have a top 12 next year along with everyone else. I would still do it because of the cash we have for FA next year. Is a #1 next year equal to a #2 this year?

If I'm the Colts and that's your offer, I just hang up the phone, you have to do way better than that.  The points chart is one thing but the tax for moving up for a QB means you better go 20-25% above.

 

Strangely Bills fans seem to think that other teams are suppose to give away the pick. 

 

I'd personally much rather give away 12 and 22 this year than 12 and a 1st next year, as that pick is likely to be much higher than 22 is this year.  I doubt the Bills will make the playoffs on a 2nd place schedule and a ton of new starters, potentially a rookie at QB or at best a journeyman.

Agreed. I believe this will be more likely. Having an SEC Alabama guy and two very good options at MLB available in that slot I am still hopeful we can stay.
