"The Bills go after my highest-rated prospect", NFL.com suggests trading up to 2 for Q. Williams

Recommended Posts

I love this idea, I'm curious what you guys think of it.

Quote

The Bills go after my highest-rated prospect

 

Buffalo Bills receive:
-- 2019 first-round pick (No. 2 overall)
-- 2019 sixth-round pick (No. 176)

San Francisco 49ers receive:
-- 2019 first-round pick (No. 9)
-- 2019 fifth-round pick (No. 147)
-- 2019 sixth-round pick (No. 181)
-- 2020 first-round pick (valued at approximately pick No. 12)

Why it works for the Bills: With most mock drafts connecting Kyler Murray to the Cardinals at the first overall pick, and the Raiders sitting at No. 4 with several key needs (and the capital to move all over the draft board), the strategy for the 49ers at No. 2 and Jets at No. 3 is very interesting. Since trading with the Jets would be an in-division move, the Bills are more likely to work with the Niners on a deal. Should my model's highest-rated player, Quinnen Williams, be available at No. 2, the Bills could craft a trade for the Alabama defensive tackle and fill a huge team need; though, the trade would require giving up their first-round pick in 2020. I told you that my model is most focused on winning this season, but that doesn't mean it doesn't consider future seasons at all. Simply put, the opportunity to draft Williams is worth the future costs, given the premium at his position and the Bills' current roster.

I'm cool with trading around the board, but next years 1st rounder is not for sale in this draft. (If it was up to me)

With all the one year deals being handed out I don't know why they would risk giving up next years first.

I agree. Smells too much like Marcel. 

I personally would rather concentrate on our weak points, which is scoring POINTS..

Let the board fall as it will, and if an OT or Hock presents, then that’s our guy.

Drafting another Alabama DT in the Top 3, and trade up giving up next years #1 as part of the package?

 

 

I’m going to have nightmares the next two nights. 😱

No way.  Do not trade up in the first for a Dlineman, when its a DL heavy draft.  It would be just like trading up for Watkins in a Wr heavy draft.  Im all for trading up in other rounds, but not in the 1st - too expensive

I do not see any circumstance where Beane gives up a first round pick in 2020.

I agree with not trading away next year's #1 but Dareus should scare us away from Alabama DT's either. There was a time where I was against ever having a QB from California again in Buffalo.

Not happening. This scenario sounds like something some drunk poster on this board would fantasize about.

Trading up for a DT in the deepest DL draft in decades is insane. This will not happen. It would be ten times worse than Whaley trading up for Watkins.  

The only player I move up for is Allen if he gets past 5. Even then I probably wouldn’t but If top 5 go Murray, Bosa, Oliver, Williams, White then I would consider a move from 9 to 5 to get Allen

Way too much value in this draft moving back from #9 not up IMO, and then packaging picks to move back up into the 1st like last year

Not only that, but nobody would value a future 1st as equal to pick #12 this year. The trade would never happen.

I would freak out if we end up with a Quinnen Williams. He is the best player in this draft and a major position of need. But I would not want to trade next years 1st round pick. I’m totally good with trading a position player, maybe shady, Shaq or Murphy and a package of 2nd and 3rd Round

picks this year and next. Do not trade our next years 1st round pick under all circumstances.
