Rumor: Buffalo Bills aren't ready to pull trigger on draft trade

Given how many picks the Jets had to give up three picks, the Bills would face an astronomical cost to move up seven or more spots. What if, after all the draft picks the Bills have collected, the team still gets boxed out of drafting on of the best quarterback prospects in this class? Now, what if the Browns and Giants were to be spiteful and select two of the three.

There are four consensus quarterbacks most believe will go in the top five, in nearly any order: Southern Cal's Sam Darnold, Wyoming's Josh Allen, UCLA's Josh Rosen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield.

Brown went No. 16 overall to the Baltimore Ravens - the team his late father played for in the league - in NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks' latest mock draft.


The objective is to draft a quarterback; that was the driving force behind their trade with the Colts. There are also plenty of people (including me) who think that the Cleveland Browns will still spend the first overall pick on a quarterback, despite trading for Tyrod Taylor. This draft is so QB and defensive heavy that they could get a stud in the second. We got six weeks to get our board together. Hard to say at this point, but Josh Allen, Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen fit the profile preferred by GM Mike Maccagnan - big body and big arm, the prototypical pocket passer.

The Jets just signed two veteran free agents for one year at quarterback: Josh McCown and Vikings free agent Teddy Bridgewater. They could choose to trade back, as they frequently do, and recoup additional draft picks. Buffalo or Denver might want to move up for a quarterback, which could give the Browns extra picks and, if the trade is with Denver, would net them one of the top trio at the fifth pick. Regardless of what happens, the Browns seem to be in excellent position. So that leaves the Broncos, who were a gamble due to their signing of Case Keenum this offseason. Cleveland, the Giants, Jets and Broncos could all end up selecting quarterbacks, which likely would mean the Colts remain at No. 6. The Jets now have two viable starters on their team, and yet they made a decision to mortgage their future for a rookie who many experts are 50/50 on. The initial reaction was that the Colts were able to walk away with a kings ransom, to only move back three spots.
