The NFL Draft in 2024 is a crucial one for the Buffalo Bills and Brandon Beane. With moving on from some leaders (Mitch Morse, Gabe Davis, Jordan Poyer, Tre White) Brandon Beane seems to be leaning on the youth of this roster.

A lot of rumors say that the Bills would nab a wide receiver or two early in this draft. With the trade of Stefon Diggs, this seems all but inevitable. Bills Mafia is even warming up to the idea of trading up into the top ten to grab one of the three highest wide receiver prospects (Marvin Harrison Jr., Malik Nabers, and Rome Odunze).

As enticing as this sounds, it might not be the wisest to give up the farm for essentially a gamble. With that in mind, Brandon Beane has been known to get antsy and trade up in the first round. Given the Bills have a bunch of draft picks, it wouldn't be surprising to see Beane trade up for his guy. If the Bills were to snag one of these three wide receivers, that could significantly set up this offense to be one of the most lethal in the league.

Here are some pros and cons of trading out of the first round.
