Bills rumored to be interested in trading up to pick three in 2019 NFL Draft

Bills rumored to be interested in trading up to pick three in 2019 NFL Draft

Rich Cimini of ESPN says a deal may already be in place. The Buffalo Bills are interested in trading up to the third overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft according to multiple reports. The New York Jets currently sit at number three and are desperate to pick up more picks after trading away their second-round pick in 2019 as part of the package for Sam Darnold in 2018. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports said this afternoon that two general managers told him the Bills have a deal in place with the Jets if Kyler Murray and Nick Bosa go in the first two picks. Buffalo would be targeting Alabama...

Which Draft prospects fit Bills’ “process”?

Which Draft prospects fit Bills’ “process”?

There’s talent, there’s scheme fit...and there’s process fit to consider among Buffalo’s draft possibilities The Buffalo Bills and their 31 NFL franchise counterparts will look to add the next generation of premier talent tonight during Round One of the 2019 NFL Draft. Buffalo will try to add talent and depth to an already overhauled roster, one which went 6-10 last year. While talent is of obvious importance in the first round, the Bills also need to make sure the players they add throughout this weekend fit the scheme and the make-up desired by head coach Sean McDermott and...

2019 NFL Draft: Pittsburgh Steelers 7-round mock draft

2019 NFL Draft: Pittsburgh Steelers 7-round mock draft

A one time only mock draft because Steelers fans have suffered enough this offseason We have finally reached that stage of the offseason where I subject readers to my annual mock draft, a one-time only offering that has not really been accurate since correctly predicting the opening few rounds of the 2013 draft. That year I called the selections of Jarvis Jones, Markus Wheaton, Shamarko Thomas and Landry Jones, arguably one of the worst draft classes the Steelers have picked in recent memory. That should give you some sort of indication of my eye for talent and it is perhaps also worth...

How far can the Buffalo Bills move up into the back end of the first round in the 2019 NFL Draft?

How far can the Buffalo Bills move up into the back end of the first round in the 2019 NFL Draft?

If the Bills want to move back up into the first round for another top player, they have some ammo. If If the Buffalo Bills stay put at nine but still want to grab another top player in the 2019 NFL Draft, they could swing a trade to get back into the end of round one. There are financial incentives to doing so, as well as talent incentives, so the end of Round 1 picks can be more valuable than those at the top of the second round. Financially, teams picking in the first round have the fifth-year option, keeping a player under team control for an extra year without breaking the bank....

Going up, not down, is the Steelers only trade option in the 2019 NFL Draft

Going up, not down, is the Steelers only trade option in the 2019 NFL Draft

Heading into the 2019 NFL Draft, the Steelers have 10 picks at their disposal. Therefore, moving up to find an impact player—and not moving down to acquire even more picks—is the only realistic trade option. Every year, leading up to the NFL Draft, Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert does his little dance with the media, where he says the team would not be opposed to trading up, trading down or standing pat (he almost always stands pat) in the first round. The theory this year is that Pittsburgh should absolutely try to trade up if one of the Devin’s—realistically, Michigan’s...

2019 NFL Draft: Buffalo Bills pre-draft visitor connections

2019 NFL Draft: Buffalo Bills pre-draft visitor connections

Which positions will the Bills draft? It’s anyone’s guess. Tonight the Buffalo Bills will kick off the selection of their 2019 rookie class. With ten draft picks, including the ninth overall pick, the team has ammunition to significantly upgrade the talent on their roster. Brandon Beane stormed through free agency with more than 15 veteran signings, plugging the holes on the roster and giving the team the flexibility to address any position in the draft. An exercise I like to do every year is to evaluate the top 30 pre-draft visitors to One Bills Drive and find their potential...

Daniel Jeremiah thinks Bills draft Jonah Williams or trade down

Daniel Jeremiah thinks Bills draft Jonah Williams or trade down

The NFL Network analyst was right about Josh Allen last year—is he right again? The Buffalo Bills have many options heading into the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, which is set to begin at 8 p.m. Eastern tonight. According to NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah, the Bills could go in multiple directions to fill that need. Jeremiah has said multiple times now that the Bills are a “team to watch” for Alabama offensive lineman Jonah Williams. The Crimson Tide stalwart is capable of playing every spot along the line, which is a trait that Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane seem to covet...

Lawson, McCoy are Bills’ NFL Draft trade bait

Lawson, McCoy are Bills’ NFL Draft trade bait

If the team wants to package a veteran player with a draft choice to move up, they have some options The Buffalo Bills and general manager Brandon Beane have only been together for one NFL Draft, but it was a pivotal one in franchise history. Not only did they take a quarterback in the first round for only the fourth time, but they also moved up aggressively to do so, making multiple trades throughout the draft process. The Bills initially were slated to pick 21 and 22 in the first round, with the extra pick coming thanks to a trade-down executed in 2017. Beane went to work, trading pick...

What are the Buffalo Bills’ draft needs heading into the NFL Draft?

After a productive offseason, the Bills could still use an edge rusher, tight end, and help on the d-line With a bevy of signings, the Buffalo Bills find themselves in the enviable position of being able to draft the coveted “best player available” when the team is on the clock for the 2019 NFL Draft, which starts at 8 p.m. Thursday in Nashville, Tenn. Buffalo picks ninth in the first round, and has nine additional picks: one in the second round, one in the third round, two in the fourth, two in the fifth, one in the sixth and two in the seventh.

College blogger perspective: Washington State tackle Andre Dillard

College blogger perspective: Washington State tackle Andre Dillard

Dillard is a “tactician” on the field. Andre Dillard wasn’t highly recruited, but the redshirt senior is nonetheless considered one of the best prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft. To find out about his path to professional football, we spoke with a writer from CougCenter, SB Nation’s Washington State blog. Here’s what they had to say about their team’s former left tackle. How was Dillard’s college career? Was there a memorable moment or did he leave a legacy of any kind? Stellar. From the day he took over, he was an anchor on the line -- which was totally wild, because he was a...

Potential Bills target: analysts take on Andre Dillard

Potential Bills target: analysts take on Andre Dillard

They like his footwork, but don’t like his college scheme. Offensive tackle prospect Andre Dillard has plenty of fans because of his agility and balance. However, NFL Draft analysts have legitimate concerns about how soon he’ll be able to start due to his college scheme, as well as his run blocking aptitude. Dillard might end up a top-ten pick in spite of his weaknesses, but the overall reports were not as rosy as one might expect. Joe Marino and Kyle Crabbs of The Draft Network and Lance Zierlein of NFL.com had these notes about Dillard: Joe Marino Dillard’s foot speed, length, lack...

Potential Bills target: analysts take on Quinnen Williams

Potential Bills target: analysts take on Quinnen Williams

The praise is unanimous. The Alabama Crimson Tide deliver NFL-caliber defenders to teams on an annual basis, but one player shines brighter than any other in recent memory: Quinnen Williams. An outstanding redshirt sophomore season showed his incredible strength, speed, and technique, turning him into a top draft prospect. We looked into what Lance Zierlein of NFL.com along with Kyle Crabbs and Joe Marino of The Draft Network had to say about Williams’s impressive profile. Here are their notes: Kyle Crabbs Quinnen Williams is an easy projection to a 3T role in the NFL. Williams has superb...

Do the current Bills tend to draft players they’ve met with? During this time of year, football fans want nothing more than to crack the code for who their favorite team will draft.
