The Buffalo Bills traded their first round NFL draft pick to the Kansas City Chiefs, giving the Bills the 27th pick, a 3rd round pick and a first round in 2018.
We have all been patiently waiting — some more patient than others — for the NFL Draft to come. Well, now we have to wait a little longer before learning who the Buffalo Bills draft in the first round after trading the 10th overall pick to the Kansas City Chiefs.
In return the Buffalo Bills will receive the 27th overall pick, a third rounder this year and a first rounder in 2018. The Chiefs selected Patrick Mahomes III.
Leading up to the Buffalo Bills‘ pick, uncertainty was at an all-time high and no one was sure what any team was doing — except the Cleveland Browns with the first overall draft pick. The Browns made it known about an hour before the draft began that they would be selecting Myles Garrett.
Right away after Garrett went, the San Francisco 49ers traded their No. 2 selection to the Chicago Bears. In return, the 49ers got the 3rd overall selection, a 3rd and 4th rounder in 2017 and a 3rd rounder in 2018. The Bears surprised everyone by selecting Mitch Trubisky. This move set the stage for the rest of the draft — full of surprises.
When it was time for the Buffalo Bills to make their selection, they had a few options. Here were the top-5 prospects still on the board at No. 10 — according to Mel Kiper Jr. on ESPN:
- Jonathan Allen
- Marshon Lattimore
- O.J. Howard
- Malik Hooker
- Reuben Foster
Trading their pick to the Kansas City Chiefs is a good one. It allows the Buffalo Bills to still get solid talent at No. 27 overall and gets them an extra 3rd round pick — which will ultimately help Buffalo more than anything. Not to mention, they will receive the Chiefs’ first-round NFL draft pick in 2018 — which will be awesome.
It will likely allow the team to look at quarterback next season.
Here’s a list of the 9 players that were selected before the Bills traded their pick:
- Myles Garrett
- Mitchell Trubisky
- Solomon Thomas
- Leonard Fournette
- Corey Davis
- Jamal Adams
- Mike Williams
- Christian McCaffrey
- John Ross
Stay tuned for more news as the NFL Draft continues. The Buffalo Bills will have the 27th overall pick, so we will have more on that coming soon!
