Trade Possibility (creative thinking)

The following scenario is soley based on the point chart out there that, supposedly, the NFL teams use when determining if draft pick trades are fair balanced…

Bills TRADE #10 pick (1300 pts) to Cleveland for #22 (780) and #37 (530). 1300 for 1310.

Cleveland would take RB Richardson with #4 pick and WR Floyd with #10 pick, completely revamping their offense early in the draft.

Bills would then be able to make a better “value pick” at #22 (possibly WR Hill from GA Tech, OT Martin from Stanford, OT Adams from Ohio St, or OLB Mercilus from Illinois). While also gaining an early 2nd round pick (#37, 4 picks prior to Bills’ pick at #41).

Bills could then possibly TRADE both 2nd round picks (#37 from Browns and own #41) to move back into 1st round for Bengals pick at #21 and 3rd round #83.

Picks #37 (530) + #41 (490) (1020 total pts.) FOR #21 (800) + #83 (175) (975 total pts.). Bills may want to ask for the Bengals 5th round pick (#156, 29 pts) or 6th rounder to further balance the equation, but not worth jeopardizing the deal over.

IF this second deal were to work out, the Bengals would obviously gain two early 2nd round picks to address more needs and/or gain more depth. The Bills would then have two 1st round picks (#21 from Bengals and #22 from Browns). Empowering them to draft both a WR (Hill?) and OT (Martin, Adams, Glenn, etc.) in the late 1st round. They would not have a pick in the 2nd round, but they’d have 2 picks in each of the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 7th rounds of the draft and one in the 6th. Maybe even a 3rd pick in the 5th, if the Bengals agree to balance the points in that deal. Obviously, they’d have plenty of ammunition to trade back into the 2nd round with all of those additional picks.

I know, I’m crazy for even suggesting this… but after they signed Super Mario (and Anderson), I’ll believe anything is possible until proven otherwise! :) Afterall, the math works out and numbers don't lie, right?! :)

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
