Bills not expected to trade up to No. 2 pick
Much of the talk heading into this year’s NFL Draft centers around the top quarterbacks being among the first few selections off the board. It has also seen the Buffalo Bills enter the conversation as a team highly interested in being among those snagging one of the top projected players at the position.
In fact, there has been persistent chatter that the Bills would be one of the most active teams pushing to move into the top picks. However, Ian Rapoport of The NFL Network is reporting that Buffalo isn’t looking to acquire the second overall selection from the New York Giants. (h/t Chris Wesseling of NFL.com)
“From what I understand, it’s not going to be one of those things where they just sell out and (trade) all the way to No. 2 with the Giants,” Rapoport said. “I would be at this moment surprised if that happens.”
There hasn’t been much talk about the Bills holding an interest in moving into the second overall spot, especially with it likely requiring them to move several high draft picks to get that to that position. It would mean moving more than the 12th and 22nd overall selections in the first round.
The more likely position that the Bills will target is the fourth overall spot with the Cleveland Browns expected to take a quarterback with the first overall pick. Depending on how the first few selections unfold, it should play a major factor into where Buffalo fill would be best to move up.
If there is anything to take away from this at this point is that there is significant interest from them to get into the position to take one of the top projected quarterbacks in this year’s draft. This is something certainly to watch over the next few days leading into the draft on Thursday night.
