The Buffalo Bills are in an interesting predicament this off season, and with the No. 9 overall pick in this year's NFL Draft would it make sense to trade up?

With the transition to a 3-4 defensive scheme for the upcoming year, Buffalo is at a loss for a true Defensive Tackle. Most mock drafts have the Bills taking a LT or a QB with the first pick.

Ndamukoing Suh has been highly regarded fro the past season as the best overall Player in the NCAA, and would be the No. 1 overall pick.

The St. Louis Rams are in a similar situation to the Bills, and are also in need of a QB. The Bills could trade up in the draft, allowing the Rams to draft their QB, and at a much lower price.

Buffalo would have to give up a couple of players with this deal, but the surplus in the secondary could be of need for the dismal Rams, who are reportedly in trade talks with the Chicago Bears regarding Safety Oshiomogho Atogwe. 

By trading the No.9 pick and one of our many defensive backs, as well as a future draft pick, Buffalo may be able to acquire a top pick.


The past several drafts the Bills have flopped with the exception of a slim few who are decent. Each year the team has drafted based on needs, drafting JP Losman when the team was in need of a quarterback, Marshawn Lynch when McGahee wanted out, John McCargo when they didn't have a defensive tackle, the list goes on.

Why not make a move based on talent, over need?
