"When you look at the Bills, yes, offensive tackle is a huge need, but are they going to pull the trigger that high? That’s the problem," said McShay Friday on a national conference call. "Anyone can sit here and say they can trade back. I don’t know that they can. I don’t know that anyone wants to move up to number 10 because my thought about this draft is what you get a 9, 10, 11, 12 is what you’re going to get at 17, 18, 19, 20. I think there’s a drop-off, but there’s a lot of depth in the middle of the first round."
