That's almost certainly a smokescreen to lure teams to trade-up.

Just don't take a guard. If they take a QB because they believe in him, so be it. Austin, Milliner if he falls, sign me up. But don't take a ****ing guard.

Which actually is an interesting question. How far would Mathieu have to fall for you to consider him? 3rd round? 4th? Not in any round?
I honestly don't think I would take him. Too much in the way of character concerns that could divide a locker room if he carries on as he has, IMHO.

I know where you're coming from. They really need to get their guy, whomever that might be. Unfortunately that person may also be a terrible value at the eighth spot, and thus be a greater risk for failure. If you look at the teams below Buffalo in round one, only the Jets have a strong shot of taking one of the QB's. So if I'm the Bills, and I want Barkley or Smith let's say, I trade down with St. Louis for example, gather an extra second, and take that QB. I don't know that the risk is too great.

Watch for Geno Smith to be the guy. I know there has been very little to attach him to Buffalo, but that seems to be Buddy Nix's MO. He seems to try and dissuade attention from players he really wants. As was said above, he clearly was using the smokescreen effect with Glenn last year. This whole Tavon Austin thing has got to be a smokescreen, or someone needs to be fired from OBD for allowing that to leak. My guess is it will be someone no one is really focusing on anymore, like Geno Smith or Lane Johnson if he's still there.

Teams think they have to trade ahead of the Jets at 9 to get Austin... Yes Please!

EDIT: Polian thinks the Bills trade down with the Rams and picks Nassib at 16

The only legit pick in this draft would be to select a guard at #8. Either Warmack or Cooper. A road grader type who can push the pile. God knows were not going to be able to do much on offense so might as well give Spiller and Jackson the best opportunity to move the chains
Thanks a lot for being right Mayock! LOL

I have seen more than enough WVU football on TV next to you and likely more than the rest here/ I am certain about one thing...Geno is a BUST!

That would be good, the draft value chart shows that Trading 8th for the 16th + 46th pick would be well within reasonable.

I love that we're screwing with the rest of the league. Or at least the pundits.

Lots of draft picks can go to the offensive side of the ball with all these depth free agents.

i'm liking the trade down scenario more and more. take non-QB BPA early teens and either use both 2nds and hope for QB at 41 + BPA or move both to get back into the 1st to get their QB if need be.
