Buffalo Bills 2018 NFL Draft picks following Dareus, Watkins, Darby trades

The Bills have a plethora of picks at the top of the 2018 NFL Draft

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

The Buffalo Bills have pulled off a stunning series of trades since the beginning on the 2017 NFL Draft that have reshaped their roster as well as the team moving forward.

During the first round in April, Buffalo acquired a first round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft for trading down in the first round in 2017. That started a chain of wheeling and dealing that continued Friday.

In August, the Bills sent wide receiver Sammy Watkins and a sixth round pick to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for a second round pick and cornerback E.J. Gaines. On the same day, cornerback Ronald Darby was moved to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a third round pick and wide receiver Jordan Matthews.

In exchange for Dareus, Buffalo adds a sixth round pick from the Jacksonville Jaguars but that reportedly escalates to a fifth round pick if Jacksonville make the playoffs this year.

Here is your updated complete rundown.
