What the Bills Shouldnt do in the Draft

By Steve

The buzz is not in the air. The NFL draft is Thursday but doesn't start in Buffalo until Friday at the earliest. In one of many head scratchers over the past 15 fuckin years, Doug Whaley and co. traded away this years 1st round pick (19th overall) AND this years 4th round pick to move up four spots to draft a wide receiver last year.

Naturally, I want to rip that decision. Last years draft was rich with receivers, this years draft is (allegedly) just as rich at receiver and trading up for any position especially a non-QB is just plain stupid.

BUT the likelihood the Bills could have used the 19th overall pick to get a franchise quarterback seems remote. Moreover, the depth of talent in this draft is shallow (again allegedly). So while the trade was awful it isn't as bad as it could have been since the Bills did win 9 games and this years high end talent is questionable at best.

Either way, dont even think about trading up again this year. If the Bills trade up into the first round this year it would likely be a disaster. Yes, I have no idea what the hypothetical trade entails but it still is a horrid idea.

Don't draft a QB in the 2nd round unless you think he can compete and be the starting quarterback this season. The talent at QB behind Winston just isn't there. I dont see Bryce Petty or Brett Hundley starting in the next year or two thus drafting a QB at 50 would be a bad idea. Blame last year's decision.

Don't use the 2nd or 3rd round pick on a running back. They already used a 4h round pick on god damn Bryce Brown and have two other running backs seemingly gauranteed a roster spot.

Other than that, there isn't much if anything that would hypothetically piss me off. Its a wide open year with a limited number of glaring needs, go crazy!

For the love of god do not trot out Sammy Watkins as this years first round pick like the old days. Hopefully I dont even need to say this.
