Here we are, with yet another big, bold move in the first round. The Bills are back, and this time, they move up with the Minnesota Vikings, sending Minnesota their first rounder in 2024, a sixth rounder in 2024 and a third-round pick in this year’s draft.

If the Bills saw Jordan Addison there at 23, then he should be the pick. But, Addison is good enough to be taken just before this point. Because of that, Beane gets desperate and makes another bold move to go up and snag Zay Flowers out of Boston College.

Flowers is an absolutely electric player, like the previously-mentioned Robinson. With this move, the Bills give up a first next year, but they also bank on the fact that it will be the very last pick in the 2024 draft.

If this offense adds both Robinson and Flowers, combined with Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs, Dawson Knox, Cook and Gabe Davis, look out. The speed and sheer route running from the receiving group is going to be off the charts. Allen will be in line for a career year, that’s for sure.

Flowers is one of the most exciting players in the draft, with the ball in his hands. He went for 78 receptions, 1077 yards and 12 touchdowns last year. With the Bills, he could very well come in and become the clear-cut WR2, moving Davis down the depth chart due to his inconsistencies. But, as a WR3, Davis could shine.

This offense just became even more elite.
