After making their second trade of the day on Friday the Bills know they’ll be sitting around for a while here on day three of the NFL draft, unless some unusual opportunity to move up surfaces.
Buffalo has not pick in round four and their first pick is more than halfway down the board in round five, with the selection they got from New England at 163 overall.
“It is a long time and we knew that was part of what we evaluated when you make this kind of move,” said head coach Sean McDermott of parting with their top two fifth-round picks to move up and get Dion Dawkins at the bottom of round two. “That’s the other end of the deal. You’re going to sit around for a while. At the same time the caliber of the player has to be good enough in our evaluation that we feel good about it, and that was the case with Dion.”
