NFL Draft rumors 2014: Odell Beckham, Jr. a Buffalo Bills target

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

WGR 550's Joe Buscaglia hit the power button on the rumor mill, filled all of its receptacles with juicy nuggets, and will now watch, Joker-style, as Bills fans burn down the Internet digesting his latest report.

Citing league sources, Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550 is reporting that the Buffalo Bills' decision at No. 9 overall could come down to a debate between LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. and North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron - but only if the board falls a certain way. The Bills, per the report, are very serious about the idea of adding the receiver to an already top-heavy depth chart - and if they do, it could mean that a well-known name is on his way out of town.

You're encouraged to read the full report here. There is a lot to digest in Buscaglia's report, so here are the nuts and bolts:

  • The decision to pick Beckham or Ebron will only come to fruition if all of Jadeveon Clowney, Greg Robinson, Sammy Watkins and Jake Matthews are off the board.
  • While deciding between Beckham and Ebron, the Bills would also entertain offers to trade down, with Zack Martin a potential target in that scenario.
  • Watkins and Matthews are the names to watch if the Bills do, in fact, trade up, but they're unlikely to move as high as No. 1 or No. 2 overall to do so.
  • Watkins is the "apple of their eye," and the Bills may even prefer Beckham to Mike Evans, as both Watkins and Beckham would bring a diverse, versatile skill set to Nathaniel Hackett's offense.
  • If the Bills do end up picking a receiver, the team will then begin shopping Stevie Johnson on the trade market, looking for a pick or picks in return.

That's one hell of a way for this afternoon's rumor mill to be jump-started, so we'll leave the comments section open for you to discuss not only Joe's report, but any other rumors you happen across, as well.
