No one is trading a 2nd for RR. He was a 2nd round draft pick who is coming off a major injury who is 3rd on our depth chart. He has very low trade value. You're better off keeping him.

Of course, thats what I'm saying. I wouldn't trade him for a 3rd. Nobody would give up a 2nd but that's what I'd want in return.

By the way, do you have any stats regarding Julio Jones vs Sammy Watkins numbers the last 3 years. That would be interesting to see.

I hope Dallas hosts it - this would ruin Jerry's draft event.

...suspend him for six like Zeke.....same mentality...............

I miss New York. It was such an easy weekend, quick flight in/out, cool fans, draft geeks,great city. Now it's just another boxed NFL circus.

I don't disagree at all but his draft is going to shape the future here. I'm not staying that they will do well or not but it is a very important draft.

The NFL draft is like scratch off tickets

Sometimes you win a little

Most times you lose

Every now and then you break even

You hear stories of others winning big, but don't ever know anyone personally who has

They've sacrificed a lot for scratch off tickets

lol pretty much it.

The Bills and Browns have 6 picks each (12 total!) in the first three rounds. Plus the Bills might end up with a seventh if they get that compensatory third.

....Pegula's checkbook has allowed Beane to build a helluva front office and administration, probably the best since Polian era......and he lets them do their job....Haslam and his gang couldn't catch carp in a barrel, same fish their drafters chase.......

Erie, PA should host it.

 

At Chick Fil A.
 

 

Or one of the abandoned factories along 12th street

That's unproven as of now. Like most moves, it will take a while to assess.

At Chick Fil A.

With the Bills and Browns holding so many pick, this could be the first draft no players declare. :)

 

Not everyone knows you are Bills' fan so some will declare.


This is all reasonable. But Sammy played in more games and had similar production to Julio through 3 years. Would you trade Julio for what we got for Sammy? I wouldn't.

I just don't think the risk of trading a talent like Sammy is worth what we got back.

 

But I'd trade Julio for Sammy straight up any day and would LA would letting Sammy be closer to "his people".

I'm going to the draft this year. It will be one of the biggest weekends in franchise history.

I'll see you there. Wherever it is.
