Buffalo Bills were all about value this year
It is worth noting that for a general manager like Brandon Beane, who has been aggressive in year’s past, was rather passive and let the draft board fall to the Bills. Now the Bills really didn’t need to be aggressive because they were able to find value up and down the board by standing pat.
The team started the draft with A.J. Epenesa, who some considered to be a first round talent, but fell all the way to 54th overall. Then in the third round, while there was a run at running back the Bills didn’t panic, kept their picks and selected Zack Moss.
However, the biggest value play may have come in the fifth round when the Bills selected quarterback Jake Fromm out of Georgia. The former Bulldog was expected to likely be a second rounder, possibly late first, but saw his stock plummet.
When the Bills were on the clock in the fifth round the value that Fromm presented, even though they didn’t necessarily need a QB, was too good. The fact the Bills were able to keep all their picks, and get the players they did, shows incredible patience on the part of Brandon Beane but that he can find value anywhere in the NFL Draft.
