Buffalo Bills Q&A Mailbag: trading up in the 2019 NFL Draft, Day 2 prospects to watch

The Buffalo Bills are locked and loaded following free agency and their sights are set squarely on the 2019 NFL Draft. With ten picks, including one in the first nine, they have a bunch of capital and we examine what they might do all over the place.

If the Buffalo Bills trade up in the 2019 NFL Draft, who would they be targeting? A speculation from the Associated Press started a big conversation this week.

Other questions we tackle are about Day 2 and Day 3 prospects who fit the Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane mold, whether Buffalo should add a linebacker, the role of Isaiah McKenzie now that Andre Roberts is in town, whether or not Buffalo should add a late QB in the draft, plus a very exciting announcement!

Featured question of the week

Who would Buffalo be targeting if they were trading up in the 2019 NFL Draft?

There are two spots on the roster where I could see Buffalo trading up in the first round; defensive tackle and defensive end. At tackle, they haven’t replaced Kyle Williams, who retired at the end of the season. Quinnen Williams and Ed Oliver both seem like Top-10 locks and if Buffalo has a strong preference, perhaps they would move up to snag one.

At defensive end, it seems unlikely one of the top pass rushers will fall to a spot where trading up even makes sense. Buffalo needs to improve the pass rush with Shaq Lawson and Jerry Hughes entering the final year of their respective deals.

The quarterbacks, the offensive linemen, even the pass catchers won’t be enough for Buffalo to make the move up but the prospect of drafting a stud defense-changing lineman might be more than McDermott and Beane can let slide. They traded up twice on draft night in the first round a year ago plus one trade up prior to the draft. Don’t discount it.
