Trade Number 2: The Bills use a combination of picks to land Jalen Ramsey

If Buffalo can get away without trading that first-round pick, and end up with either a starting offensive lineman or a premier weapon to go with Diggs, that would be ideal. Let’s say the Bills wanted to use a combination of higher draft capital to try and land Ramsey. A possible trade could look like this.

In this deal, the Bills would trade this year’s second rounder (number 60 overall) and their fourth-round pick (number 131 overall), along with next year’s fourth rounder. In exchange, they would land Ramsey, but Brandon Beane would also be able to convince L.A. to give him a pick in exchange.

It might only be a seventh-round pick, but that selection is just one extra swing for Beane to try and find a diamond in the rough, and that’s well-worth bargaining for.

One thing we have to remember about trading for Ramsey, too, is his contract. He has three years left, and his cap hits for those remaining years are $25.2 million, $26.7 million and $22.7 million. For a team that’s already over the cap and in a tough spot to bring back a couple of their own important free agents, that contract would be extremely difficult to take on.

It could be done, but Brandon Beane would have to make some sacrifices.
