Todd McShay mock draft says Buffalo Bills trying to trade up

New, comments

ESPN's Todd McShay, believe it or not, is the latest to hear from "league sources" that the Buffalo Bills are trying to trade up in next week's NFL Draft.

In his latest mock draft for ESPN.com, Todd McShay became the latest NFL observer to decree that the Buffalo Bills are attempting to trade up in the 2014 NFL Draft.

"I've heard from three league sources in the past week that the Bills are trying to trade up," McShay wrote, speculating that their target could be defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, offensive tackle Greg Robinson or wide receiver Sammy Watkins.

Reports have circulated for over a month now that the Bills are interested in moving up, and they started with intimation from Dan Pompei of Bleacher Report that they might be willing to go as high as No. 1 overall. Bills GM Doug Whaley has done nothing to squash those rumors, reiterating that the team will keep all of their draft-day options open and speaking glowingly about both Watkins and Clowney - Clowney especially - when prompted.

Given that the draft is now only a bit more than a week away - the first round begins on Thursday, May 8 at 8PM ET - this sort of rhetoric is only going to intensify. How keen are you on the idea of the Bills moving up in the draft, Bills fans?
