Sources have confirmed that the Buffalo Bills are trying to one-up the New York Jets by aggressively attempting to trade up to the No. 2 overall pick with hopes of landing a future franchise quarterback.
With the 2018 NFL Draft just a few days away, expect to hear a lot of rumors of teams trying to trade up or down in the draft order. The New York Jets already made a blockbuster move to trade up from the No. 6 overall pick to No. 3 not too long ago due to wanting to finally draft their future franchise quarterback.
Now it appears that the Buffalo Bills are also trying to do the same kind of move but one-up the Jets by being one spot ahead of them. In an article written by Kristian Dyer of Metro, he confirmed through an anonymous source that the Bills are trying to trade up to the No. 2 overall pick currently owned by the New York Giants.
Considering that the Giants have publically stated that they’re willing to hear any offers about their No. 2 overall pick, means that the Bills have an opportunity to move up and land one of the top quarterbacks in the Big 4. The Bills currently have nine draft picks which are more than enough capital to entice the Giants to consider trading down. They have two first-round picks and even a pair of picks in Round 2 which would be huge for the Giants to add to their arsenal.

If the Giants feel they want to bolster their team through this year’s draft by acquiring multiple draft picks, it’s a no-brainer to make a blockbuster trade with the Bills to make it happen. That way, the Giants can draft more players that can make an impact in 2018 and the Bills can select their future franchise quarterback, much to the dismay of the Jets and their fans.
Boy, wouldn’t that be something if the Bills pulled such a last-minute move and took a quarterback that the Jets have had their eye on for months now? Not only would that add even more to their AFC East rivalry but many years from now could be considered one of the biggest tragedies to ever hit the Jets in a draft if it pans out in favor of the Bills and they end up selecting a future elite quarterback.
These rumors will undoubtedly heat up as the draft draws closer. Hopefully, these Bills rumors are just that and there is no trading up to ruin the draft strategy of the Jets but like they always say, always be prepared for everything and anything around this time.
