The 2021 NFL Draft brought the Buffalo Bills Gregory Rousseau and Carlos Basham, Jr., both defensive ends, in the first two rounds. The next two selections were offensive tackles Spencer Brown and Tommy Doyle. Despite having a variety of roster needs, Bills general manager Brandon Beane thought it would be best to spend four picks on only two positions—one of which wasn’t considered a major need.

The approach is uncommon, but hosts Jamie D’Amico and Big Chris Newton believe that Beane’s track record of finding talent in the draft should afford fans confidence that these selections will work out. But that leads to another question...

With the Bills being so close to a Super Bowl, would it be more appropriate to address positions of immediate need? D’Amico and Newton address that, as well as whether they’d give up ten years of success in exchange for a guaranteed Super Bowl victory next season.

As always, the hosts want to hear from you! Please reach out to them on Twitter at @TheJamieDamico and @Big_Newt.
