  • Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News believes the Bills best option in round one would be to trade out of the No. 10 overall pick, as opposed to taking a wide receiver or a tight end.
  • Even so, Carucci admits that he’s having a hard time believing that new HC Sean McDermott will see it the same way.
  • Carucci mentions that the Bills’ defense is in dire need of help at cornerback, which happens to be among the deepest positions this year, and moving back could net them a mid-round pick where they could get a solid player at this position.
  • Beyond that, the Bills have just six picks in total, so it couldn’t hurt to increase their picks.
  • One thing worth considering for the Bills is that they’re just ahead of the Browns at No. 12 overall, so it’s possible a team could have interest in moving up for one of the quarterbacks.


Jason Cole of B/R reports that the Broncos are “completely focused” on fixing their offensive line issues in this year’s draft.

Cole mentions that Utah OT Garett Bolesis of high interest” but adds that it wouldn’t be surprising for them to take multiple offensive linemen this year.

  • Broncos new HC Vance Joseph told reporters on Monday that their quarterback competition between Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch will open as a “fifty-fifty“: “It’s open, guys. Fifty-fifty. It’s open and it’ll go down to the wire, I hope.” (Nicki Jhabvala)
  • In regards to their left tackle job, Joseph said: “We have four or five candidates who will compete for the job. But we don’t play until the fall, and that’s a good thing.” (Nicki Jhabvala)
