As weird as last offseason was for NFL fans, they may need to brace for a similar virtual draft experience in 2021. With that being said, virtually or not the NFL Draft is always something Buffalo Bills fans should be excited about.
For the Buffalo Bills and BillsMafia, they can begin to get excited about different reasons. In the past, the Bills have hovered around the earlier picks in the first round, but after an extremely successful 2020 season, the Bills find themselves picking at 30th overall.
However, with the 30th overall pick the Bills can either sit tight and select a glorified 2nd rounder, or trade back into the 2nd round and acquire more picks. Personally, I’m in the camp of trading back to acquire more picks and ensure a better value selection in the second round. Bills fans may not like this strategy, but it’s a strategy the Patriots have proven works through various drafts in the 2000s.
With this newfound success for the Buffalo Bills comes a new formula for sustainable winning. This offseason and draft will be the first year Bills general manager Brandon Beane will get the opportunity to flex this sustainable winning formula.
Below I will breakdown my latest mock draft in which I used the Pro Football Focus Mock Draft Simulator and their trade values to trade out of the first round.
