Moves the Buffalo Bills should make before the 2023 NFL Draft: Trade for Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy

In terms of big moves requiring the Bills giving up a haul, this is one of the only ones worth making. Buffalo can use another legitimate weapon next to Stefon Diggs, and the Broncos have been very public about making their wide receivers available via trade.

Of course, one of the main reasons Denver would want to part with Jerry Jeudy is due to the fact that they gave up so much to acquire Russell Wilson, and need to restock their draft capital.

Jeudy is on the last guaranteed year of his rookie contract, with a fifth-year option in 2024 at the Bills’ disposal if they dealt for him. Jeudy could wind up commanding anywhere from $15-$20 million annually, which would mean the Bills have to figure out a way to pay him if they’re going to keep him around.

What exactly would the Bills have to give up for Jeudy? My guess is that the no. 27 pick would absolutely be sent to Denver, as a starting point. If it wasn’t too much more, and the Bills could send picks in 2024 and/or 2025 along with their first this year, then Jeudy would be worth it.
