No


we can get a great WR at 22 (or even 54) this year and a solid player at 54. A great WR class like this means you can get quality WRs later due to high supply.

 

BB has been great making picks so far. Give him more picks, not less.

The correct answer as always is, "unless you need a new QB, just say no to trade-ups'

As much as I love the player, I feel we have too many holes to fill..

I disagree. I don’t think we have many “holes” at all. We need depth at certain positions, but we’re not devoid of talent. WR is a little different because we have our solid #2 and our slot guy. We need a 1.

 

With that said, I think we should stay put at 22 and see who falls. If we go another position at 22 then a trade up in 2 is definitely on the table. Either way, we need to come away with a top receiver in the first 2 rounds.

...certainly agree......Beane has assembled an impressive staff of 17+ (ALL on Pegula's nickel) to include several former VP's of Player Personnel and Directors of Pro Player Personnel from around the league..safe to say they have done a good job with their homework in the last two drafts......even late or UDFA.......they know their stuff IMO...

I'm not sure. Lamb is enough to test my "Never trade up" mantra and this trade doesn't seem all that bad.

 

Having said that, the WR class is strong enough that I think I'd lean towards just staying at 22 or trading down. I'd understand if we did pull the trigger though.

I think no I would not trade up for Lamb.  Pending FA, Bills will have a number of holes to fill including WR, OL, DE, possibly DT.

 

i am all for trying to get top offensive play makers, but I don’t know that Lamb is so good that he justifies trading their 2nd pick for.  
 

Now, if they resign Jordan Phillips and Shaq Lawson and add to the OL in FA, then maybe trading up for a WR is a reasonable plan...

I appreciate that Lamb is in the upper tier, but in this class I feel like you're better off taking a WR with 22 & 54, rather than packaging them for 1.

Where?

I think we need starters at WR, RT, SLB, CB, and possibly DE if we can find an upgrade...

100% agree on all of those needs. Hey if you're from Schenectady is Mike's Hot Dogs still open? I haven't been there in 14-15 years.

Damn straight...I try to hit it up every few weeks...and the food is just as good as you remember...little extra traffic too, with the casino down the road. 👍

WR? Yeah, that’s why we’re trading up.

 

RT? Well we just drafted Cody Ford so I guess you’re expecting a third round rookie to be better than him from the jump? 

 

We need to spend a high draft pick on a SLB who is gonna see the field <50% of snaps? 

 

CB? Were we bad at CB last year? Feel like we have a top 3 CB already and had a great pass defense. We also have a couple quality slot DBs. It’s hardly a desperate need.

 

DE would be nice but it’s hard to draft an impact rookie at that position in the mid rounds.

 

The bottom line is that this team doesn’t have a lot of needs when it comes to the modern NFL. Every team has “needs” that boil down “it’d be nice to have an upgrade.” 

 

We really “need” a WR and maybe a DE and that’s it. Every other position on top of that is just a bonus.

Possibly DT???! How many DT’s do we need? We have Oliver and Phillips already! Are we really saying we should pass on a day one starter type player at WR because we need a rotational defensive tackle???

The conventional wisdom is always no...until it's yes.    This point in time is the exception to the rule, where it makes sense, given where we want Josh to go in year three...

No. I want Justin Jefferson at 22. I also like KJ Hill like a lot a lot. He is projected as a second round pick. Aiyuk looks like could be good too. Way too many solid wide receivers to be going up for one.

I think we need at least one go-to target for josh, so if we don't have one or two by then yes. I assume we will have fa"s filling that need by the time the draft rolls around because they will be better targets, knowing where they need to be, the checks, etc. Older guys whose contracts can be removed from the books when we need to pay josh and the other draft picks.

It seems to me the Bills have had bad experience trading up for WR, so I vote “no”

Oof, this is a good question/thread. My general rule of thumb would say no, especially in a draft so deep at WR... but I'm just not sold on Higgins or Shenault.

 

IMO, if we stay at 22 and assume we take Higgins or Shenault there, I'm also hoping the Bills take another WR later, like in the 4th round.

 

So do we spend our 1st and 2nd picks on a top talent, or do we spend our 1st and 4th picks on "lesser" talent, but allow us to get another decent player of need in the 2nd?...

 

Eff it, it's only February, I'm gonna get crazy and say make the trade. Just for Gugnys and Giggles.

Obviously players bust, but man these 3 have such high ceilings and have produced and improved year over year - hard to see these 3 not working out unless they get stuck on a **** team like Jax or something

Who are you referring to by "these 3"? Lamb, Shenault, and Higgins?
