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.....

Siran Neal is quality depth at safety and nickle, Taron Johnson is superb at nickel, Dane Jackson was solid for being a young late round pick, Jaquan Johnson has flashed but is stuck behind two quality starters, Wildgoose was stolen by the Jets. 
 

We need to replace Wallace and Tre might not be ready, that’s why we drafted a corner.

We certainly need another skill player.  I remember when everyone wanted the Bills to take Metcalf early, and we waited and came away with Gabe Davis.  I trust Beane to find a mid round WR who plays meaningful minutes for us this season

I picked Elam in my mock yesterday and got Breece Hall in the second, let’s do it! 

Lots of options and paths for the Bills to go in now that they're set at CB2.  RB is a fun idea, but WR, IOL, even TE are all in play.

They are all depth guys, hence the move up to pick Elam.

 

Wallace wasn't worth keeping

Can I bring up the fact that I think it’s absurd how nobody has brought up Aiden Hutchinsons mom tonight. My god what a smoke show.

Wow.  I assume the other blonds were his sisters?

This was News to me and a VERY interesting bit of info. That clarifies things for  me greatly. Beane had this info as well I am certain it factored into his move up decision. I hope Elam isn't too disappointed to not be playing for his dads ex team

 

He was pumped and very excited during his Zoom presser. Said he felt a special connection on his pre-draft visit to Buffalo. Also said he wasn't the first defensive player taken so that is extra motivation for him. Seems like a very levelheaded kid. Beane said Kaiir's personality reminded them of Tre.

I think you don’t know ***** and I’ll stand by that. It’s just conjecture from you, you really don’t know no matter what you post, others could have been trying to trade with Baltimore also, but in reality you don’t know anything for sure. We got a great player at a position of need but keep crying 👍

 

If you've been on this board for more than a day, you should know to have @Mr. WEO. He's a board troll and consistently wrong then when you post one of his hilariously bad takes at him.. he disappears.

I think the Titans could’ve been the third team vying for one of the two cornerbacks. Would explain the Chiefs move, and the Titans’ subsequent trade back following the Bills pick. The Titans have two 4th round picks, neither better than the Bills though.

Beane is using the Green Bay that they use with Aaron Rogers 

I know what you're trying to say, but re-read that sentence and tell me it makes sense.

 

Beane used the 2020 first round pick to get Diggs, so you're objectively wrong about that. Green Bay hasn't hit really on any WR draft picks, we have with Davis. We've signed decent FA depth historically as well, while Green Bay has certainly had more trouble than this.

 

It sounds like to me that you're having a tantrum instead of thinking about this logically.

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

 

I question the move down for a 4th. But why do you say he "threw it away?  You KNOW 100% there is no team that was looking to draft ahead of the Bills with CB needs?  I'm guessing if teams were making calls, Beane knew it. 

 

So instead of saying "he threw it away", you might instead say "he used it to procure the one guy left on whom they had a first round grade". It may not have been necessary, but you can't know that.

Completely okay with the trade.  We don’t know what Dallas was doing or who they were hearing from.  And I wouldn’t trust anything Jerry says anyway. 
 

Even if we were reasonably confident we could get him at 25, why risk it?   Control what you can control.

I disagree, every rule benefits the offense in the NFL. I’ll still load up on nukes that can’t be stopped over unproven missile defense systems. This feels like a pick that Dick Jauron, Lovie Smith or the ***** Bears FO makes.

So unproven Nukes vs unproven Missile defense systems. That is what the analogy comes too. 
 

end of day need a competent Launch Authority and we are Elite there. (JA17)

Y'all need to keep the personal nonsense out of this thread.

People are coming in here to learn about our new corner, not to read that clutter.
