i'm going to say we had a deal in place with the Cowboys and we were going to trade up for Jacob Eason, who went 1 pick in front of the Boys. That's just specualtion of course but Eason is the type of QB that the front office usually covets (Cam Newton/Josh Allen) which I was a little bit surprised to see them go Fromm since this offense looks like it's built for the long ball and Eason would have made alot of sense. I still like the Fromm pick alot and I don't think Barkley has a chance in hell to retain his job, just my opinion.


I agree, think it was Eason too. Would have made a lot more sense than Fromm. Though I’m optimistic Fromm can become a solid backup in a few years.

Colts 4th round # 122 - Eason. 
 

Cowboys 4th round # 123. 

 

Bills 4th round # 128 - Gabriel Davis. 
 

James Morgan QB went to the Jets at #125. Wonder if the Bills would have taken him at # 128. Sometimes the trades not happening turn out for the best. Time will tell. Reading about Eason, I can’t imagine he’d accept being a backup for long. Fromm is a football player who is just happy to be on a team. I think he’s an ideal #2.
 

 

You could be right.

The reason i don't think it was James Morgan is that Beane said it was an NFC team he had a deal in place with, the only other NFC team was the Eagles and they were only 1 pick in front of us and if they wanted Morgan they could have traded with the Cowboys and got him. I'm happy with Fromm also, I think he can be an excellent player and teammate. If he becomes even more than that then hey we hit the mother load but to me I think he'll be a better version of Matt Barkley, a stable game manager who can win you some games which you can't ask for much more out of your backup.

I think it was Weaver, Zuniga or Hall.. The worst part is they all went to the Jets or Dolphins..

Weaver or Hall are my bets. Zuniga went round three and I believe been said on day three(rounds 4-7), they were trying to make the trade up.

i also think the 3-4 spots could easily be 5-6 spots. Beane isn’t going to get to specific. Unwritten rule is you don’t talk about the ones who got away this soon.

Beane has a trade worked out with an nfc team 3 or 4 spots ahead but the player was taken before that pick

 

Bryan Edwards fits that scenario in round 3. Cowboys four spots ahead of us. Edwards goes to the raiders the pick before 


I think we have a winner here.

Williams is going to compete for a roster depth position.  

Beane said he will play either RG or RT. Could be depth or could start.

He said NFC

 

We should be able to work it out..... wasn't round 4 because he said Davis was their guy. Wasn't round 7 surely.... so that leaves 3 picks - one 5th and two 6ths and it was a guy who went 3 or 4 picks ahead to an NFC team.

Please note Beane's baseball reference ....

 

"I'm a curveball pitcher, but today, I threw fastballs."#Bills GM Brandon Beane on not making any trades.

 

 

Baseball IS relevant, right??

What about Bryce Hall in the 5th? Might of had a deal with Tampa Bay but then Jets took Hall. 
Tampa was our trade partner when we got Josh right?

That's possible. Could have also been Tyler Johnson if the trade was with the bears.

If it was round 2, it could have been a trade up to 43 with the bears to get Claypool.
