Buffalo Bills trade back into second round: Troy Franklin

Considering the Bills don't have a third-round pick, it wouldn't be surprising to see them try to trade back and add some additional draft picks in this year's draft. If they do, they should still have the chance to add a difference-maker at wide receiver and the best option would be Troy Franklin.

Franklin is another wide receiver with great speed and had a career average of over 15 yards per reception, including 17 yards per reception this past season. In fact, in the past two years, he has been a big part of the Ducks' offense with over 140 receptions, 2,000 receiving yards, and 23 receiving touchdowns.

The biggest concern with Franklin is that he is a bit smaller than Thomas or Mitchell at only 176 pounds. It will be interesting how he handles the physicality of NFL cornerbacks and if he can get off the line cleanly.

The Bills have done their homework on Troy Franklin and actually brought in the former Oregon wide receiver for a Top 30 visit so there is interest on the part of Buffalo and as an early second-round selection would be a great pick in this part of the NFL Draft.
