Lmfao I swear I was thinking that same thing. Imagine that's what's going to happen and that kid was right. I think he'd become famous in Buffalo lol.

They just re-signed Josh Gordon, who is as talented as Beckham, and they spent 15 million per on Landry. That's not happening, I don't think ...

 

Gordon (or Coleman) could be part of the deal, both us and the Giants could certainly use help at WR.  They've been the team most consistently linked to Beckham, he's obviously tight with Landry and they employ his college position coach.  I don't think Gordon or Coleman has any impact on what Dorsey & co are going to do with the team.

Definitely, neither are part of their long term plans imo

I think they'd love to flip Gordon when he holds value and Coleman hasn't shown near enough to be considered part of the long term answer.  After dealing with Beckham, Gordon may look like a minor inconvenience to the Giants.

That would be crazy.

 

Beckham, Landry and/or Gordon/Coleman... depending on which one they trade. Then they get a RB like Guice at 12..... wow.

Fair point. 


That said, I do worry that we're moving into the land of magical thinking at this point. The trade sorta works for everyone, but it REALLY works for the Bills.  Hence our love for the scenario. But if the Giants would take Darnold if he's there (as has been reported ad infinitum), and the Browns want to take Allen, why would the Giants ever make that trade?

12 going to the Giants.  12 & 22, 2 1sts for Beckham.

If the Browns say "we can live with Allen or Darnold" it makes all the sense in the world to sell Darnold at apex value, especially holding pick 4 where one can reasonably assume Allen is still there.  The Browns tell the Giants "we are trading Darnold, so he's out of play for you, why not play ball and pick up some value to still get Barkley and we jump the Jets".

Maybe they don’t know?

 

Bills to 1 would have to happens first. Cleveland gets its hall of picks. And knowing the Bills take Darnold, they wouldn’t have a shot. So they take picks off of Cleveland to move back and still get a guy they would have selected at 2.

If that kid is right, I'll edit that thread about him from "rumor" and "Dunkirk type" to "Legendary kid from Cheektowaga".

Could make some sense where there's been Allen to the Giants buzz.  Giants trying to bluff the Browns "see we might take your guy", don't trade Darnold.

Moving up to 2 and selecting Allen would my my stomach churn , as opposed to any of the other 3 top QBs 

 

Staying at 12 and picking Allen would be a disaster....I wouldn't even know what to call trading up and then picking Allen.

Hope you're right. We shall see. 

If the Bills get Darnold, this draft will be a huge success, at least by my reckoning.

He certainly has the fewest “issues”.... though still raw. But very “process” and while raw, he’s further along than Allen. Imo

Yea it’s all cat and mouse game at this point. 

 

Only bit that doesn’t make a ton of sense is Darnold to Bills. The Bills are the only QB needy team that needs their rookie QB to most likely start. That’s Rosen. Suppose Darnold could come in mid season.

 

Allen to the Browns just makes too much sense based on their trade for Tyrod.

Yea he’s only 20 but he still needs to sit for a bit, maybe half the season I would imagine.

Even if they are split between Darnold and Allen, it makes too much sense to sell the guy someone really wants at 1 vs selling the last guy left at 4.

I think the hold up on our deal with the Giants is both liking Darnold.  If we deal above them that forces their hand.  

But if we trade to the Browns for #1 they can't stop us taking Darnold. The rest of the trade can only happen after we get #1.

Even though picking a RB #1 would normally be "LOL Browns" worthy, this year, I think if Cleveland picks Barkley No. 1, they are guaranteed one of Darnold, Rosen, or Mayfield. Why Allen is in this mix, I have no idea...but put him there, too, if they happen to like him. This would not be bad at all for the Browns.

 

If Rosen is dropping, the Biills can just move up to 6 and pick him there. But if they're really going to move up to 1 or 2 for Darnold or - god forbid - Allen - this would not be good at all.

Dude, they all have to sit. Unless it's Mayfield or Jackson because they can play RPO all game.
