Buffalo Bills have 10 2019 NFL Draft picks

After dealing quarterback AJ McCarron, the Bills entered double-figures on the draft pick front

Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane is a wheeler and a dealer. Less than a month after making a deal for wide receiver Corey Coleman, who was released by the Bills as part of their final cuts, Beane shipped quarterback AJ McCarron, who signed a two-year deal with the Bills in March, to the Oakland Raiders.

The return on the latter trade is a fifth-round choice in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Bills will have 10 selections in April’s draft, as the conditional pick used to acquire Coleman is a seventh-round choice in 2020. Buffalo’s selections in the 2019 draft are as follows:

Round 1: original pick

Round 2: original pick

Round 3: original pick

Round 4: two picks; additional selection acquired from the Kansas City Chiefs as part of Reggie Ragland trade

Round 5: two picks; additional selection acquired from the Oakland Raiders as part of AJ McCarron trade

Round 6: original pick

Round 7: 2 picks; additional selection acquired from the Carolina Panthers as part of Kevon Seymour trade

With right around $50 million in dead contracts coming off the books next season, according to Spotrac, and at least $70 million in cap space for 2019, those 10 draft choices will help Beane to continue his overhaul of the Bills’ roster.
