Bills Trade Up, Draft Josh Allen 7th Overall

After months of speculation and anticipation, Brandon Beane did what nearly every Bills fan wanted him to do: make an aggressive move to trade up in the 2018 NFL Draft to select the franchise quarterback that they have coveted since Jim Kelly.  It was a little later than most people thought, but the Bills moved from 12th overall to 7th overall.

To make the move, here was what the Bills had to give up:

Bills receive:
7th overall
7th round pick

Buccaneers receive:
12th overall
53rd overall
56th overall

There will be plenty of analysis and recap in the coming days, but as far as tonight, rejoice Bills fans.  Rejoice that we have a GM who saw the importance in having a franchise QB and that he did what he needed to do to make a move to land the QB that he coveted.  Now, let’s hope that Beane picked the right one.  His job, and the Bills’ legacy will depend on it.  Go Bills!
