This won't end, anytime soon...

We're over a month past the 2024 NFL Draft, but the Buffalo Bills continue taking shots for one key decision made.

Later in the first round on Day 1 of the draft, the Bills opted to allow the Kansas City Chiefs to trade up with them. It's one thing to allow a bitter rival to be part of a trade. It's another thing to watch that rival turn the move into exactly what they needed in that moment, as the Chiefs selected wide receiver Xavier Worthy with the pick acquired from Buffalo.

Once a favorite to land in Buffalo, Worthy became a Chief in a matter of seconds.

In one of his recent pieces over at Bleacher Report, Christopher Knox mulled over the entire NFL offseason and put together a list of his top 10 worst moves across the league. To no one's surprise, the Bills' decision to allow Kansas City to trade up and get Worthy made the cut.

Wrote Knox:

"Here's a novel thought. If you're a viable AFC contender who has struggled to get past the Kansas City Chiefs in the postseason, maybe trading down in the draft so that your conference rival can land the fastest receiver in combine history isn't such a great idea."

"Kansas City must have sensed that it needed to trade up to get Worthy. If the team that has ended your postseason in three of the past four seasons comes calling for a specific player, maybe you shouldn't pick up the phone."

We get it, the Bills might have made a catastrophic error allowing the Chiefs to draft who could be the next Tyreek Hill

Worthy has gotten a lot of comparisons to former Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill based on his speed, alone. Worthy broke the Combine record for the fastest 40-yard dash time ever recorded, and that fact alone is enough to put his name in the same conversation as Hill.

The Chiefs' offense has not looked the same since Hill departed for the Dolphins via trade, but Worthy comes in offering something the unit has severely been lacking -- a legitimate deep threat.

That was supposed to be Marquez Valdes-Scantling, but, we know how that turned out. Now, the Chiefs may actually have something close to the Tyreek skill set, in Worthy.

In each of his six seasons with the Chiefs, Hill made the Pro Bowl. He also took home three All Pro honors. We know how lethal that offense was with Hill and Travis Kelce.

Now, Worthy comes alongside another speedster in veteran Marquise "Hollywood" Brown. The damage these two could do together, with Kelce continuing to be an integral part, might just come back to bite the Bills.

Like everyone and their mother, Knox makes valid points. It might not have been the smartest move, but it's in the rear view. The best Buffalo can hope for is controlling their own destiny, now, regardless of how the Worthy pick pans out for Kansas City.
