The Bills are jockeying to move into the Top 5 of the draft following the Jets-Colts trade. New York moved up to third overall by trading the 6th pick, 2 second-round picks, and next year’s second round pick to Indianapolis. Their objective is the same as the Bills: to take a franchise quarterback from this years rich class. FANS NEED NOT BE DISHEARTENED. THE BILLS CAN STILL MOVE FROM 12th INTO THE TOP 5 BY DEALING WITH THE GIANTS. BRANDON BEANE FORMERLY WORKED WITH GIANTS GENERAL MANAGER DAVE GETTLEMAN.

The Bills have moved up to 12th overall draft pick with the trade of Cordy Glenn to the Bengals. The teams exchanged their first round picks, increasing the Bills advantage in taking a standout quarterback. They may strike a deal to move up even further by dealing away both first round picks. CLEARLY THE STRATEGY IS TO MANEUVER FOR A PREMIER COLLEGE QUARTERBACK. THE NUMBER OF VETERANS AVAILABLE IN FREE AGENCY IS RAPIDLY DIMINISHING. HOPING THE GRAND PLAN WORKS AND RESULTS IN THE LONG EXPECTED FRANCHISE QUARTERBACK, WE AWAIT THE OUTCOME AS 1BUFFALO.
