2013 NFL Draft trade: Bills, Rams swap picks

USA TODAY Sports

For the first time in his tenure as Bills GM, Buddy Nix has executed a trade down.

The Buffalo Bills have traded the No. 8 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft to the St. Louis Rams. The Bills will now be picking at No. 16 overall in the first round.

Here are the details of the trade:

  • The Bills and Rams swap first-rounders; the Rams pick at No. 8, and the Bills pick at No. 16
  • The Bills get the Rams' second-round pick, No. 46 overall
  • The Bills and Rams swap third-round pick locations, meaning that the Bills move from No. 71 to No. 78
  • The Bills get a seventh-round pick from the Rams, No. 222 overall

Buffalo now has eight picks in the draft: Nos. 16, 41, 46, 78, 105, 143, 177 and 222.

This is the first time in the Buddy Nix tenure as Bills GM that the Bills have traded down. Tavon Austin helped him make it happen, and the speculation that the Bills will take a first-round quarterback will now only increase. The only downside: we have to wait a bit longer to see who the newest member of the Bills will be. Then again, we seriously doubt that any Bills fans will have a problem with this.
