Still makes zero sense to throw away a pick no matter how you try to rationalize it 

How it is zero sense to secure a player at need that you would love to have on your team.  You are basically saying am I willing to lose this player over a 4th?  Beane knew he needed this player and made it happen.  Its pretty simple.

Just because it doesn't make sense to you, doesn't mean it doesn't make sense.

Because the team you jumped had no need for that position you could have waited three minutes and still have your 4th round pick seems pretty clear to me

Elam ain't White. Not by a country mile. 

Neither was tre when we picked him but I simply meant our next CB1 when tres contract runs it’s course. These years pick is the natural replacement

I would not have traded up for him but one thing I know for sure is that if we took him it's because his football character is pristine. I said before the draft I will NEVER doubt the Bills when they pick a CB as long as McDermott is in charge.

I don’t love it but I’m not going to second-guess McDermott on a CB…I do not understand the trade up though.

I really wanted Andrew Booth Jr, had a great feeling about him. I’ll trust McDermott knows CB’s better than me, though, it’s kind of his thing.

 

yet Siran Neal, Taran Johnson, Jaquon Johnson, Dane Jackson and Rachad Wildgoose are why the Bills just traded up in a reach for this kid in the 1st.....

Love that we upgraded the secondary,6’1” corner who ran 4.39, how can anyone hate that? They must have had first hand knowledge of some interest from other teams, giving up a 4th to get your guy is never a bad thing. If Tre isn’t able to go this guy is going to be a great insurance policy imo.

Trading up anytime is ok except to jump a team that has no need for the position you want why just throw the pick away? No reason to do it whatsoever

Do you have any substantial point to make besides moaning about a4th round pick on a stacked roster?

Tre played mainly press man in college too, how can you possibly say that with such authority?

My adjusted draft philosophy:

 

BPA and Trading Back are for rebuilds. For loaded contenders (like the Bills), spend as many later round draft picks required to move up and get three guys to fill out our team. Camp fodder, competition, whatever…they can all be found on the waver wire just as easily as in the later rounds (probably better players, too).

Dallas may have taken him. Also several other teams tied to him who may have been trying to move up
