I'm not a gator fan but I am a huge Elam fan.  I predict that he will end up being the best CB in this draft class.  He has it all, size, speed, athletic ability and smarts. Now if we can land Breece Hall and Punter, Matt Araisa then I'll hit the trifecta.  Let's Go Buffalo!!!!!

Beane wanted to get faster on defense offense.

 

Somehow premium resources tend to shade toward the defense.  

 

At this rate, I think McD won't be satisfied until all the defensive is 1st rounders/high dollar UFAs.

What does this mean

 

It was a joke since Jauron had an affinity for corners. 

 

Personally im good with the pick.  Huge need filled

should have been jermaine johnson. so much for highest rated player on board.

The Bills don't draft the highest rated guy on YOUR board.   They take the highest on THEIR board.

I think they saw the run on DBs and got antsy.

 

I like the selection tho.

 
It does feel like a panic trade. Obviously they had him rated much higher than Gordon and perhaps Booth was off their board for medical.

 

Would’ve preferred Elam after a trade..down.

The cowboys had zero interest in corner we burned a pick for a guy they could have had at 25 anyway just dumb 

It's possible another team was trying to trade into the same spot, or would have traded with Cowboys to scoop us. There certainly have been a lot of trades tonight...

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.

 

Yeah, the trade-up was weird.

Wow! I figured the Bills would draft a CB but surprised they traded up for one. Dallas wasn’t taking a CB but maybe Beane got word of another team trading up. 

 

That was my thought, we believed someone else would trade up with Dallas?
