what a nice change of pace from 10-15 years ago when guys looked like they were just sentenced to death when they found out they were going to Buffalo.

Josh is the only first round offensive pick since McDermott got here (and that year he still got Tremaine in Round 1). Not necessarily a bad thing but remember when we are speculating next year lol

WR!!!!

I really liked Booth in the tape I have seen, but I trust McD. I'm just happy they went corner. It is the biggest need, especially since I don't think we will see a truly healthy White until late next year, hopefully just before playoff time.

why?   that’s unreal.  ACC D player of year.  Good against run and pass. 

It’s a team specific board which factors in need - the Bills took 3 pass pass rushers in the first two rounds the last two years and signed Von Miller

We traded up for him, 1 pick away and Booth and Gordon on the board. LOL.  That happened..

 

and now the jets gets Johnson.  Jets killed it.  Luckily we have 17

Considering Beane said he's the last one he had 1st round grade on that makes sense.

For all those wondering why the Bills traded up: I can only assume that either the Ravens told them they had other teams trying to move up, or they had intel that the Cowboys liked Elam themselves.

Maybe Beane just got antsy, since Elam was the last player on their board with a 1st round grade.

They also don't have Jake Kumerow as their backup Z and X receiver.  And have a All-Pro level TE.  

 

Buffalo's strategy is not build up their defense with other teams (LVR, KC, LAC, CIN) featuring multiple top receivers paired with a QB.  

 

Drafting defense given current rules doesn't work.  But McD gonna put that round peg in the square hole no matter what. 


LOL.

 

KC’s back up WR are Josh Gordon, Justin Watson and Cornell Powell.  Are you kidding me?  Those 3 had a total of 12 catches last year.   
 

You just get your panties in a wad everything McDermott.  Grow up my god.

The Bills going CB was obvious. A small trade up was necessary to keep them from getting jumped for their guy.  Apparently they didn’t have Booth or another CB ranked closely.

To quote a former Bills head coach, obvs

Look how far he's fallen. Character concerns may have disqualified him altogether. He may not have even been on their board.

If we Bills fans have learned anything about Beane & McD... it's that they know CBs. Ya think Tre White would have lasted until pick 27 if other teams knew what McD knew?

 

They didn't trade up for no reason either as they might have been thinking that NE who also needs a CB might have been attempting to trade up. We don't know. 

 

I'm not going to worry about it either.  The Bills got their guy.
