The Buffalo Bills have plenty of draft capital and could end up acquiring even more as Brandon Beane looks to build the team through the NFL Draft.

The Buffalo Bills had two first-round picks in the 2018 NFL Draft and it is possible Brandon Beane wants to have the same situation in 2019.

The Bills currently own the No. 9 overall pick and desperate teams may come calling on draft night.

A recent ESPN.com article went through bold offseason predictions for every NFL team and the one for the Bills had to do with acquiring another pick. The bold prediction, written by Mike Rodak, is that the Bills will trade down to end up with two picks in the first round.

The Oakland Raiders currently have three first-round picks, while the Green Bay Packers have two. The Packers’ first pick is at No. 12 overall, so it’s possible the team loves a player and wants to grab him at No. 9.

Even more likely is that the Raiders want to swap picks No. 24 and No. 27 with the Bills to pick at No. 9. The Raiders also pick at No. 4 overall, so the franchise could add two top-ten players with such a trade.

The Bills could also trade down with just about any other team and acquire a future first-round pick as well. As long as the Bills take a prospect who can produce right away at one of the major positions of need, fans shouldn’t be too worried.

The issue comes when a team starts trading down and missing on some prospects who can really help the team. I don’t see Beane making such a mistake.
