2019 NFL Draft: all the Buffalo Bills’ trade options with number 9 overall

New, comments

Buffalo could trade up or down in the 2019 NFL Draft

The Buffalo Bills don’t need to stay at number nine overall in the 2019 NFL Draft. General manager Brandon Beane said as much earlier this offseason in response to trading down. But Beane has also shown a propensity to be aggressive.

Very aggressive.

In 2018, during his first Draft as general manager, Beane traded up three times in the first round:

  • Moved from 21 to 12 by trading left tackle Cordy Glenn ahead of the draft
  • Moved from 12 to 7 to draft quarterback Josh Allen
  • Moved from 22 to 16 by trading a third-round pick to draft linebacker Tremaine Edmunds

If Beane sees a high-value player dropping into trade territory, he’s not afraid to pull the trigger, so don’t be shocked if he swings a deal should one of the top two or three players on their board begin to fall towards them.

Over the last month, we’ve gone over several trade options. If you want in-depth analysis on each trade and the point breakdowns, click on the link for each article (where applicable). In this recap article, we’re going to be bare bones and list just what the trade value charts say is fair value. Those charts are a starting point, especially for trading up into the top 5 or trading with division rivals, so in a few cases we’ve added some expected adjustments.

Here is the Old Chart information and the New Chart information. The new chart values second and third round picks at a slightly higher level than the old chart.
