One of the keys to having a good draft is the ability to get more with less, meaning trading (in most cases) down to a lesser pick to add more drafting opportunities and stockpiling talent. This is only looked at as successful if when you eventually make your selection you still end up landing a player that most (Draft) analyst feel can help your ball club right away. With all that being said it’s the perfect segway to the (article title) question “Should The Bills Brass Trade Down On Draft Day”? Well should they? Think about it guys if when the draft finally arrives two of the said top three tackles stocks have slipped why not trade to draft them. If Riley Reiff (http://www.hawkeyesports.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/reiff_riley00.html) who in the opinion of many’s the second best option at OT is no longer said to have top ten value but more like mid to late teen value, then why not trade down a few spots and take him at say 15 and get an extra pick in the process? When put that plainly it seems like a no brainer right? WRONG!! This is the type of decision that management and coaches all across the league struggle with year end and year out! The knowledge of knowing when to veer off the path that the (so called) experts say you need to take and go with your gut feelings. This is why the term “reach” exists today people.
