2018 NFL Draft: What time will the Buffalo Bills be on the clock Friday?

The Bills hold one selection deep in the third round. Here’s the estimated time.

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 traded both of their second round picks in the 2018 NFL Draft and two of the three third round picks they had, leaving them with just one pick. When are they expected to pick tonight? Here’s our best guess.

In the second round, picks can take up to 7 minutes while in the third round they shift to five minutes. If the teams take the maximum amount of time (32 times 7 plus 31 times 5), it will be 379 minutes from the start of round 2 at 7 Eastern until the Buffalo pick at 1:30 a.m. Eastern, but that’s never happened.

So the Bills will probably be on the clock just after 11:00 p.m. Eastern tonight and have their pick in soon after that. That’s if they don’t trade up, which Brandon Beane has done on every pick in his entire tenure as Bills general manager. Stay tuned!
