What Jets-Colts trade means for Buffalo Bills

What Jets-Colts trade means for Buffalo Bills

During his press conference on Friday, Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane batted away questions about the 2018 NFL Draft, the quarterbacks and whether he would be able to turn pick No. 12 and 22 into a top five pick.

Don't assume, Beane said, that they'll move up higher than 12 on draft night.

"I mean, yeah, listen, I know everybody assumes we're going higher, but I don't know that," Beane said.

Well, on Saturday, getting into the top five just got a bit harder. The New York Jets traded the No. 6 pick, two 2018 second round picks and a 2019 second-round pick to the Indianapolis Colts for the No. 3 pick in the draft. That pick was one many assumed Beane and the Bills would target to move up and take a quarterback. Now the Bills are back in a tricky spot. As Beane said at the Senior Bowl, it takes two to make a deal.

"Everybody has their own value," Beane said. "At the end of the day, it's like anything that's for sale. It's only for sale if somebody's willing to move it. I know there's going to be all these hypotheticals of 'this is how the Bills can do this and what it could take.' But you have to have a partner. If we decided that it was worth moving up there. Even if you want to move to two or three or four or five, whatever number it is, they have to be willing to do it. And they may ask for a king's ransom that does not make sense for us."

So the question is, are the Giants willing to move the No. 2 pick? They might not be if they are targeting a quarterback. Odds are the Cleveland Browns will take quarterback Sam Darnold with the No. 1 pick in the draft. If the Giants are zeroed in on UCLA's Josh Rosen, Wyoming's Josh Allen or Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, that would leave the Jets to pick the next best available quarterback at No. 3.

The Bills could then trade up to No. 4, but at that point, the Bills would be paying a similar price only to take the fourth best quarterback on the board. What are the chances the Bills feel strongly about four of these quarterbacks? At that point, maybe they would sit back and see which players are available at No. 12. That would make this week's trade with the Bengals, that saw the Bills move from 21 to 12, worth it.
