Bills to #2?

Here's a thought: Buffalo trades #9 and C.J. Spiller to the Rams in exchange for the #2 pick.

Houston either trades out to a higher bidder (Atlanta perhaps) or they take Clowney off the board at #1. Bills take Sammy Watkins and use a later pick to fill the hole they just created at HB.

Carlos Hyde would almost certainly be off the board and I wouldn't expect them to trade back into round 1 for a HB but they would have the pick of the remaining litter in round 2 and it's generally a pretty deep field of HBs at that point. My preference in this case would be to wait until round 3 in the hopes that Boston College HB Andre Williams is still around, but that's just a personal preference.

Doing so would give them the ability to take the best Tackle on the board in round 2.

Here's the hypothetical:

1. Sammy Watkins, WR
2. Cyrus Kouandjio, T
3. Andre Williams, RB

Now, why on earth would I want to trade C.J. Spiller? I don't. I want C.J. to play his entire career in Buffalo but the likelihood of that happening is low. I am fairly convinced he's going to demand more than he's worth and that will facilitate his exit into free agency at the end of this season. This scenario precludes that. It fills a hole before the hole even materializes and brings in a much more durable downhill runner into the position.

Why would the Rams do this? Easy. Take a look at their offensive depth chart and you'll see how easily Spiller makes an immediate impact there. And with the #9 pick along with their other first round pick should leave them stocked with other less-proven talent elsewhere on their roster.

From Buffalo's perspective, this move also gives them their best chance to land Clowney, should the Texans do the unexpected and pass on him. Then of course you have:

1. Jadeveon Clowney, DE
2. Cyrus Kouandjio, T
3. Andre Williams, RB

and with the depth at WR that option, although unlikely would of course be a grand slam for Buffalo.

So let me know what you think in the comments? Will the Rams bite? Is it worth it to lose Spiller, even if you think he'll only be on the roster for 1 more season anyway?
