Tyler Dragon?  I bet that's his real name.

Yeah, that's wrong too. But, we could have probably gotten something for him, so its not as crazy as what I thought you were saying. 

We would have gotten at least a 1st.

 

When Vonte Davis - 2nd

Revis - 1st, 4th

Peters 2nd , 4th

 

Recently Ramsey 1st, 1st, 4th

Conley 3rd

 

So in 2017 Bills could have easily gotten what Revis got in 2013

Those aren't comparable. I am pretty sure those players all had time left on their deals, except for maybe Revis.  Like, Davis still had two years on his rookie deal. 

 

Besides that, Gilmore wasn't universally considered the best CB in the league when he was here. He was, at best, above average.  

 

He would have been worth something, but there is no basis to believe it would have been a 1st.

Look at what CBs have been traded we would have gotten Multiple Picks for Gilmore to include at least one 1st.

 

It is.  Brown is better than Julian Stanford and Corey Thomson so yep it would be an upgrade

Well, no he's not actually.

Only by Bills fans.  and that should have been evident the minute he hit UFA he was signed by Patriots at 15M a year.  a Tag and Trade would have brought what Revis did in 2013,  he would have brought at least a 1st and 4th.

What has Julian Stanford or Corey Thompson DONE that says they are better than Brown other than being Bills?

What has Brown done to say he's better than the backups we have.  You have your opinion, I have mine.  Quit pretending yours is the be all and end all.

He made one pro bowl while on the Bills.  You really think that creates Revis level value?

Revise 2013 value in 2017 absolutely it does.  Am I here saying multiple 1sts and more like Ramsey?  Nope I am using a 2013 value on a CB that was 28 and in a contract dispute to set the mark for a CB that was 26

I'll back mine up.  Brown makes a ton of tackles but he makes them after the runner has made 5 yards if not more.  And he's a liability in pass coverage.  So he doesn't help us.

Dude, why are you dying on this hill? You lose so much credibility claiming he was worth a first. All you need to say is we would have gotten something, and you would be right. But you make this absurd claim about a first round pick and you end up sounding like such a cliche troll.

Mr. Softie's day has come.  I'll never forget how WR Steve Smith Sr made fun of Brown after playing against him.

Really.,....

 

Revis before Trade.....  19 INTs, 1 FF, 78 PD in 79 games

 

Gilmore before allowed to walk for nothing: 14 INTs, 3 FF, 62 PD in 66 games (2 years younger) 

 

So tell me again how they are not comparable.  

 

The Bold would be you, we get it your hate for Gilmore cloud your inability to judge his play

I have to agree with MajBobby here. Knowing what we know now -- that NE snapped him up and paid a fortune for him -- it's pretty clear that the NFL saw Gilmore as elite even if TBD posters had their doubts. CB is the most valued position on the defense now, and a young one who has proven that he is good is definitely worth a first.

Preston Brown would be great depth and he was a great locker room guy as well. He fits "the process" ... would love to see him brought in.

Remember how bad we looked when Milano went down? Imagine if he goes down again or if Edmunds gets injured... we need quality depth.

Do it.  Put him at the Mike and move Edmunds to the Elephant role, let him rush the passer where he has a chance to be ELITE.  You want to shake things up and tilt the field a bit?  Time to make a move, McBeane.

Before everyone says “no!” (oops, too late), consider this:

- I have no idea how Miami’s run game will look next week, but I do know that Denver can run the ball effectively, and that Dallas will run the ball very effectively. Going in to those games with the same defensive personnel is asking for trouble ... in a perfect world we wouldn’t have to sacrifice pass coverage to gain in run stuffing skill. 9 games in and in a fight for a playoff spot ain’t the time to look for perfection ....

Yep and even if they didnt work out a trade maybe they signed that long term deal. What would Bills defense be now with Gilmore and White on the outside??????

Hindsight is always 20/20.  Besides, if the rest of the NFL thought he would be worth a first in a trade, he probably would have been selected to more pro-bowls.  On top of that, I think its fair to say there was a general surprise around the league when BB handed out that contract to Gilmore.  He had some good stats, as MajBobby points out, but he gave up a ton more in penalties and catches than Revis.  That is why he did not make the pro bowl until his last year here. 

 

That said, I loved Gilmore and thought he got a bad rap. But, at that time, when it was decision time, he was not worth a first round pick on a tag and trade.  

 

Last thing, trades don't happen in isolation. Markets determine trade value. We have no idea what Gilmore would have been worth in the market.  I guarantee the FO did at least some digging into what the market might yield. It is telling that they didn't even attempt a sign and trade.  That tells me the market value would not have yielded a pick that would have justified the franchise tag price.

Pro Bowls are a joke. He was good for the Bills. Just ask Bill Belichick, who is at root a DB coach. I would bet a lot of money that he would have commanded a first.

Moving your starting MLB to a new position this far into the season wouldn’t make sense

It tells me that there was a NEW coach (calling the shots) and a Lame Duck FO.  While I am not going to KILL McD for this lack of trade (there are other things I can point to) but this is one Data Point out of many.  Decision was made for the tear down, that is what was told to us the MINUTE McD was hired.  and that was later confirmed when Whaley was shut out of the draft room and replaced right after.  To NOT get value for Gilmore was a wrong move.  Press CBs get penalties yes that HAPPENS

 

We all lov Tre White too.

 

9 int, 3ff, 35PD in 41 games. 

 

What is Tre White's Value in a Trade?

But People will tell m Tre White would not be moved for less than a 1st and well is a very similar player to Gilmore, but I am the one that doesnt know value.

 

Jalen Ramsey 9 INT,  3FF, 45 PD in 54 games - Less than Gilmore across the board gets 2 1sts and a 4th in a trade.

Well, you gotta get better if you want to do anything other than backing into the playoffs and losing a first round game ... sometimes that means taking chances.

Players on a tag and trade do not have the same value as players traded with a year or two left on their contracts, especially their rookie deals. 

 

You are talking about trades that rarely happen as if it was a given that not only would the Bills be successful, but they would also get a prized first round pick.  

 

There rare cases where it works, but Gilmore, with his accomplishments and failures, is not one of those cases.
