Dorsett stinks; I wouldn't give up anything for him.  There is/will be someone on the waiver wire who's better than him.

I think he fits our needs better than anyone else available. Would he be our #3 here? Behind Zay and Matthews? A conditional 5th would get it done I think. We're already missing our 6th rounder so it depends on how much Beans values those late picks.

 

A 5th rounder for Dorestt?  That would be an atrocious value trade.

@TheBillsWire

Why the #Bills trading for #Colts WR Phillip Dorsett just makes too much sense

Dorsett is worse of a football player than Goodwin.

The Bills "need speed" because they sent their speediest WR west about ten days ago.  How many of you player personnel geniuses who want to trade a pick for some other team's first round bust of a WR applauded the Watson trade?   If the Bills FO didn't feel the need for Watkins' speed -- and sure hands -- why would they ever want  Dorsett's lesser talent?  


Dorsett 4.33
Watkins 4.43
Zay Jones 4.45

Different kind of speed. Not nearly as talented as Watkins, to be sure. But a higher top gear, kind of like Goodwin

Give them Ragland. Fresh start for both players.

This I could be on board with.. but from everything I've seen, he's not very good.
Ragland more of an unknown.

I'm not ready to give up on Ragland yet. I've had an ACL tear myself. It takes quite a bit of time to come back from that injury. My knee didn't feel right for a long time. My knee injury was more severe than Ragland's but it took me well over 6 months before I could even put any real weight on it, let alone walk normally or play any type of sports. I've heard a number of people say that it takes 2 years to fully come back from that injury - a season to get back on the field and another season to get back to pre-injury form. (Leslie Frazier recently talked about this).

I don't know that Ragland will really ever fit this defense but I'd like to find out for sure before dumping him for someone like Dorsett.
I'd at least like to see him fully recovered first.

Plus, I guess I feel like (or hope) he'd be worth more than that to someone, too. But I liked Ragland a lot more coming out of college than Dorsett, so maybe I'm just bias.

We don't have a 6th or 7th.

 

Would have to be a 5th and get back a 7th. 

 

I would be willing to try him out for a 7th. We are desperate for speed right now

We have a "conditional 7th" from the Chargers. It can be in 2018 or 2019 depending on conditions with Cardale (don't know what they are). I assume he needs to make the team for it to be a 2018 7th but not sure.

Wouldn't be a bad move at all, but then again they apparently don't value the position that highly.

So what do I make of them taking Zay Jones in the second round?

Let's wait to see how his career develops and what he commands on a 2nd contract.

That they value the position as a day two (i.e. Second tier) investment?

Because he's more than likely a better fit as 3-4 ILB which the Colts run.

Just for my memory can someone remind me where our 6th and 7th went?

At the moment is it:

2x 1st
2x 2nd
2x 3rd
1x 4th
1x 5th

?

Sixth went to LA Rams in the Watkins deal.
