With the 2018 NFL Draft just days away, the rumors continue to fly around the league and one quarterback-needy team is no longer believed to be considering a big jump at the top of the draft. According to reports, the Buffalo Bills will not be trading up to the No. 2 overall pick to land their preferred signal-caller.
There were previous reports that the Bills and New York Giants could have the framework in place for a deal that would allow Buffalo to jump to No. 2 because of GM Brandon Beane’s strong relationship with new Giants GM Dave Gettleman, who he worked with in Carolina.
However, Beane denies those rumors.
“I don’t get into that, but that’s not true,” Beane told One Bills Live, via Ryan Talbot of Yahoo. “I’m going to leave it at that.”
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network says a trade to No. 5 or 6 is most likely if one of the top quarterbacks begins to slide. Of course, that could be playing fire for the Bills who could end up missing out on a player like Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield or Josh Rosen altogether.
The 2018 NFL Draft takes place April 26-28 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
