The NFL Supplemental Draft takes place this afternoon and the Buffalo Bills are one team who may decide to make a selection.
The main story surrounding the Buffalo Bills right now has to do with the disturbing allegations against LeSean McCoy. We don’t want to speculate on the situation, so we will wait for all the facts to come out.
While we do that, there is a football-related event today that should have Bills fans somewhat interested. That event is the NFL Supplemental Draft.
This is not usually a noteworthy event but it is this year because of all the talent available due to varying situations of why the players have entered this draft.
The top players available all play in the defensive secondary and the Bills may decide to use a late-round pick to snag one of these players if the value is there. However, the philosophy of Brandon Beane may prevent him from giving up a pick for a player who for some reason had to avoid the actual NFL Draft.
For those who don’t know, picking up a player in this draft forfeits that round’s pick in next year’s NFL Draft. So if a player is gained with a third-round pick, the team loses that pick in the NFL Draft.
The event takes place at 1 p.m. and we will be keeping tabs on it. Until then, here is a look at the latest news surrounding the Bills in today’s Morning Charge.
