Complete waste of draft capital.   Do not trade up unless the trade up is for a QB plain and simple especially when Mayfield is still on the board.  This would just be a dumb move by the Bills.

Cleveland takes Darnold, Giants Barkley, Jets Rosen, Cleveland Chubb or FitzPatrick, Denver Allen, Indy Nelson, Tampa James, Chicago Edwards. 

So either you want Baker, Jackson or Rudolph. at 12th. No way Baker gets there. Bills have to have a Middle Linebacker.

Ok so why trade up for one?  Let Smith or Edmunds fall to 12 and take them there.

Then that leaves Edmunds or Evans who's draft stock is climbing.

Smith has been compared to Luke with NC. That is what he needs roaming middle of the field taking on TE's. This is McDermott's want and need. Rudolph is a big strong pocket passer with good accuracy, bigger arm than McCarron and ready to compete to be a starter.

I dont like the trades or Rudolph selection. I like Price and Vander Esch

My mock goes something more like this

 

Dream Scenario would go, QB, LB, RT, G, WR, HB

12.)Lamar Jackson or josh Allen, whoever is there.

22.)Rashaan Evans- sideline to sideline backer, extremely experienced

round 2, pick the best offensive line players available. WIll get very bad next year otherwise

65.) Anthony Miller- the next AB

96.) Rashaad Penny

 

Or trade it all for Baker..

I agree Smith is gonna be a stud in the NFL.  I personally feel that trading up to acquire a MLB is a waste when you could get a comparable player in Edmunds and some people even say Evans at 12 without giving up anything.  I say only trade up for a QB because of the importance of the position.  I also completely disagree with your assessment of Rudolph.  He is going to be a career backup at best.  So if Baker is on the board and the Bills draft Smith over Baker a ton of fans are going to lose their minds.

If we are gonna give these picks away I would rather try to get in the top of the draft for the blue chip QB- Darnold or Rosen.

I am fine with Jackson but no way he starts this year or next, he needs time to learn to be under Center. Might not even dress game days. Rudolph can challenge for starter, if he loses than Peterman and him can vye for backup. If Peterman loses he is gone and Falk is game day cut, need 3 QB's during a season.

Brent Sobleski, Bleacher Report 
No. 12: LB Roquan Smith, Georgia
Without a viable quarterback prospect on the board, head coach Sean McDermott can land his version of Luke Kuechly to quarterback the Bills defense.
Comparing Roquan Smith to Kuechly may be unfair even though their games are quite similar. Kuechly came out of Boston College as a highly instinctive sideline-to-sideline defender who struggled to take on and shed blockers. Smith is nearly identical to that description with the kind of range that’s rare among even the best linebackers. He is actually a step faster than Kuechly, with a 4.51-second 40-yard dash time, though Smith weighed in at 236 pounds to Kuechly’s 242.
Buffalo’s offseason points toward McDermott trying to build the Bills defense in the same manner as the one he led as the Carolina Panthers’ defensive coordinator. Star Lotulelei’s signing was one example. Pairing him with Kyle Williams along the interior will provide Smith plenty of room to run at middle linebacker.
According to Pro Football Focus, Smith led all FBS defenders through the regular season with 70 tackles and 37 run stops without a missed tackle. The Butkus Award winner recorded 137 tackles, 14 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks overall.

No. 22: QB Mason Rudolph, Oklahoma State
Six quarterbacks in the first round may be a stretch, but the Bills aren’t in a position to land one of the top four prospects. Of course, Lamar Jackson was available earlier. However, Buffalo already gave up on Tyrod Taylor because its coaching staff prefers a traditional pocket passer.
Mason Rudolph is considered a fringe first-round prospect. He’s more likely a Day 2 selection, but the Bills are desperate. AJ McCarron’s presence does provide some flexibility. The 27-year-old McCarron will be given an opportunity to start after signing a two-year, $10 million contract. That deal, however, doesn’t guarantee the veteran anything.

The 6’5″, 235-pound gunslinger led all FBS quarterbacks last season with 4,904 passing yards and tied for fourth with 37 touchdown passes. Rudolph left Oklahoma State as the program’s all-time leading passer with 13,618 yards. He can deliver the football with uncanny timing and touch, especially on deep passes. 

 

 

Chris Trapasso, CBS Sports No. 12: QB Mason Rudolph, Oklahoma State
With the Jets setting the price to move into the top 5 extraordinarily high, the Bills don’t make a trade, pick Rudolph and keep all their early-round selections in the process.

This just in, Bills fans hate Smith and  Rudolph so in the interest of making Bills fans happy.

 

Bills change selection at 9th pick to Baker 

 

22nd pick Bills take Rashaad Evans MLB.

 

Bills with 34th pick take DJ Moore WR by trade with Giants for Lawson, 3rd pick (96) and 2019 4th round  and don't trade for Browns 35th pick and keep 1st next year. 

 

Trade (done on draft day) - 47th pick: Bills select Billy Price G/C by trade with Cardinals for 53rd pick, 5th round pick (166) and 2019 5th round pick

 

56th pick: Bills select Luke Falk QB

 

121st pick Bills select Dante Pettis WR. 

 

 

All is Better in Bills Country because Bills fan got their franchise QB in Top 10 and it wasn't named Jackson, Rudolph or Allen.

You can't make these miserable bastards happy so don't even try. If Beane listens to us he'll be the next Ex GM of the Buffalo Bills.

Interestingly enough, that's actually not true. We, as a group, have generally liked players that have turned out to be good. A few notables were being essentially unanimously against Maybin and preferring Orakpo, skipping EJ for anyone, and trading up for Khalil Mack not Sammy. 

 

We don't get diamonds in the rough right, usually our late round envy is for media hyped guys, like Griffin, etc.

You forgot that the consensus was to select Ngata over Whitner.

Horrible waste of capital.  Just no way.  If you are giving up that much - you had better get a top flight QB and then you compound he mistake by drafting 2 mid tier QBs.

 

Now we have 4 QBs on the roster - 2 rookies that are no where near ready, a 5th round pick from last year with littl experience and AJ - what is the plan keep all 4 on the roster or are you getting rid of last year pick and wasting that capital also.

 

If they move up - it had better be for QB not MLB or even worse - trading next years 1 for a WR.

 

Sorry - everyone is entitled to their opinion, but goodness- I hope this is way off.

I do this for fun but listen to allot of sports talk. Because of the odds of finding a real franchise QB the best shot if a consensus QB is there would be with the 1st pick of the draft. Unless your willing to give up all your picks this year and your top 3 next it will not happen. Your just as likely if you keep selecting QB's every year high enough to land one good enough over a 5 year period. Course if you can't evaluate properly your screwed, Bills of course have been falling in this area. I like Beane and can't wait to see what he will do. I also believe McCarron can be good enough, not a savior but win. He proved that in college.

Fine but show us what you would do. Because you say Rudolph and Falk are mid round QB's don't make it true. Both have everything to win as a pocket QB with good stats in college to go with it. I believe no matter what, McCarron starts in 2018. I believe Bills will carry 3 QB's and the reason 4 are there is for competition, may the best man win! That is how you find the best players, not by moving up selecting high on one player and say, here's the keys. Maybe the only one worth that is Darnold and we are not getting him.
