Win now =/= don't plan for the future. The can mutually occur.

I generally agree with this, but the Bills were so close last year. Big needs were a dynamic speed guy, DB , TE, DE. So far, they have added all developmental guys, who aren't expected to have much of an impact this year.  The running game, which was subpar last year, has all the same guys back. So those guys have to get better, I guess.

A SB window can close very quickly.

So 2 OT's with both our Tackles signed long term, following 2 DE's? Now we've traded down to pick up extra picks when most felt we'd trade up because it'd be hard for 7 to make the roster?

 

I don't get this Draft, at all.

All about using FA to fill "needs", and the draft to find gems/develop young talent.  Beanes philosophy, and we're always 1 play away from needing a quality backup OT to protect for Josh. So we need depth, and basically had Bobby Hart coming in.  

 

I'm also curious if the team plans to use one of these "trees", as an extra OL/blocking TE.   Or on field goal blocks/ST.  If these guys have verticals and already 6' 9", this could make interesting situations.  That's likely a stretch, but bottom line we need depth at OT

Which is what Spencer Brown was and is why I understood that.  I guess I’m the only one who is worried about our interior D Line even if Rousseau and Basham can move around, I’d like a pure DT to go along.  And, a CB to develop is nice too.  I understand building for the future especially with big contracts coming up sooner than later.

But my response was towards your "win now" aspect of your post. Which inside lineman would you plug in at this point of the draft that helps the team "win now"? ......there isn't one thus nearly ANY pick the Bills pick now are about potential, injury concerns or niche players.

Gunner any thoughts on Tay Gowan? Seems like a good fit.

Okay.... my point still stands. Who would you have picked in the 5th round that would have been a day 1 starter to help the win now narrative?....I will wait.

People I think may be sleeping on Lamp. He is the most talented interior offensive linemen that we have. I love his signing and I think he may surprise some people. Also, even though he hasn’t done it, I think his skill set projects very well to center. So he gives us versatility. I think he starts at one of the guard spots. 

One can hope, one can surely hope.

Basham isn’t a development guy. Breida is a dynamic speed guy, already here. I don’t know the plan yet on TE other than it’s not a huge part of their offense and they are still trying to get ertz

I am not talking just about the 5th round. They had picks in rounds 1-3, and took two developmental DE's. There were plenty of other options.

Basham isn’t a developmental DE
