Greg Cossell gave a precise evaluation on Elam.  He will fit in very well opposite Tre.  4.39 speed and is a physical CB.  Beane and his team has one of the best draft records.  Armchair GMs can moan and groan but the facts speak for themselves.

All this talk about the Jets, I should hope they upgraded their team with 3 first round picks. It would be a problem if the consensus was anything else.

 

Time will tell and they appear to have done well, but I am hardly worried...

If THIS is litterally the biggest complaint you have about buffalo bills football these days then is this really worth complaining about? SuperBowl contenders bc of the GM, but heaven forbid we use the draft as intended to fill a need... you are right.... total clown show...

Ease up fella. No need to get upset. I would hardly say I was complaining.. just stating that our hands seem to have been tied and teams somewhat knew it. 
I’m baffled that my comment triggered you that much. I’m a huge Beane supporter and I trust the guy, but I saw this exact scenario coming from a mile away. 
 

Is what it is. We needed a corner.

Doubt Beane is very happy right now. Not about the pick itself, but because he was forced into a move and had to pay for it, versus waiting and or having leverage. 

 

Leaving that void at CB obviated taking BPA, I don't believe for a moment Lloyd didn't have a R1 grade.

Maybe i’m wrong but I didn’t think he ran 4.39 40 at the combine. id like him more if he did.

Not sure what happened with Jermaine Johnson, or why Beane apparently didn’t have a 1st RD grade on him, but the Jets - on paper - look to have had a great RD1 with 3 potential impact players. 

 

I definitely trust the Jets GM over Beane. Bills only had the #1 defense and #3 offense. Jets had the 32nd defense and 26th offense. 

 

Johnson had a 14% pass rush win rate which is not simply low, but truly abysmal. He may be good, but I wouldn't be sure he actually wins a position on actual production this year and they certainly couldn't put him on the practice squad.

And what 4th round rockstar would have made our team - let alone make an impact? We lost nothing and got our guy for sure. 

What if we wanted to trade up in the 2nd or 3rd round more then 2 spots? We dont need a lot, if we got 3 starters/high end backups in the first 3 rounds, Im happy. The trade up was a waste.
