A wonderful day in neighborhood right now for, ah, for hashtag exports and everybody.
How you doing? Good to see you.
Welcome to the customary Siri's that we have here.
It has to exports here on SportsCastr D.
What if Siri's for the Buffalo Bills? What way? I need this bad boy.
I thought you guys were a little bit of food back there. So sorry about that.
That being said, Well, the Buffalo Bills trade up where they go.
Get a wide receiver with a go get ed rusher.
Will they go get their guy quote unquote.
So what? What? What? I decided to explore a little bit here at on SportsCastr.
If you're not a fan, you know, **** eliminated, Come.
Fan has to export the sportscast.
Talked about a lot of good things here.
The one thing that you got to try to find a partner, you're gonna try to find a trade partner for for that.
But I was trying to explore the other option, Which is what if the Buffalo bills worth to trade back and trade out of the first round? If they were just given a deal that they could not resist.
Um, and they were given because they've been hitting on a lot of the draft picks recently.
If recent history shows that mean in 2017 they hit Andre White in 2018 you got your quarterback in your middle linebacker, basically the quarterback of both the offense and the defense in Josh, Alan and Tremaine Edmonds.
And then last year you got at Oliver very, very, very good player.
And then you're starting to hit on some draft picks that air out of the first round.
So eventually, you know, some of them players, it's gonna be kind of tough to re sign them.
So what if the Buffalo Bills were to trade out of that pic? So, like I said before, if you want to, if you're gonna trade out of that pick, you gotta have somebody in there to trade in for you and one of the ways to do that, um, one always to do is just examine the teams that possibly would would be we have to need would have a need.
There s So that being said, let's let's examine some of the teams that they could, uh, so first fall obvious teams that don't even have a first round pick our teams that you can explore.
You know, we're talking about the Texans.
Bears, Rams and Steelers are four teams that do not have a first round pick in the 2020 draft.
Buffalo Bills could give some of them picks.
Actually, the Rams.
I don't think they have a picket like I don't know until the mid 20 twenties.
Like they don't have it on the first round pick for, like, four years, which is very interesting.
So, um, that being, ah, that being that being said, you want to look at all those teams in there the Texas, the Bears and Rams and Steelers, obviously the two that are immediately off the table.
I think you've got to take the Texas in the Steelers off of the table as far as that goes, because you're not gonna train a first round pick now.
What I'm saying is this they don't have a first round pick.
What the scenarios that I come up with now is that if a team is trading in and you don't have a first round pick this year, your given the bills give up their first round pick.
They're getting the 20 21st 1st round pick of these teams now.
First of all, the Rams have to actually have one, and they don't.
So they're they're off the table. The Texans.
The Steelers are going to be off the table due to the fact that you don't want to give You don't really want to give a player.
Ah, game changing player, especially in your conference to it, to a team.
I mean, if the if the Buffalo Bills trade with Kansas City didn't tell you that, I mean getting giving up 1/10 overall pick and then the chief's taking Patrick homes in winning the Super Bowl.
I think that that would deter you from that.
So So it takes the tech is up.
Texans off the table, the Rams and Steelers out the tail and then just leave the Bears.
I mean, I don't know of any previous relationship with the Bears and the the the Bills have, but it's gonna be interesting to see if the Bears wanted to get into the first round and the Bills wanted to get out.
And there was a sweet deal that the Bears happen to offer the the Buffalo Bills.
That is, that is, that is an area that they could do.
But they're so cap strapped at the moment.
If you want to look at the Chicago Bears, currently, they currently there 53 guys on the roster and then we have $5.
5 million to play with.
And after they signed the rookie class, there could only have $1.
4 million that all being told, um, if they added a first round pick that would be that would put them over that over the top.
They would have to make a few more cuts.
And I know they just saved close, like 13 million by cutting Taylor, Gabriel and Prince Amukamara two players, which I mean you got you got Mackenzie and Buffalo.
You don't need Taylor Gabriel and keep a mocha more as far away from bills. You can.
He has been in and out of teams.
He's like the he's like the Sam Bradford of Corner cornerbacks.
Man, this guy always gets work.
I don't know why.
It just seems like he always struggled quite a bit.
So that being said, the four teams that don't have first round picks, I'm gonna say are unlikely to trade back in with the Buffalo Bills.
I think there's gonna be really tough for that the next, Ah, the next place you want to go as far as it goes, teams that have very low or few picks Now the Titans and the Chiefs both have a first round pick.
They have the 29th overall and, of course, the 32nd overall.
So what if what if they wanted to trade back in to get an extra pick? While this is another scenario where they only have five picks this year, they can't really give a lot of equity, especially, but the Bills could trade back.
I mean, it could be one of the scenarios where they trade back, but the Titans of the Chiefs don't have the available equity to give the Buffalo Bills a pick in the 2020 draft, so it would have to be something next year.
They would give a second round or 1/3 rounder next year, which I mean, Brandon being has not been shy about.
He's traded back picks for future years.
He's traded players or future picks, So that is a possibility that could happen if for if the titans of the chief's wanted to move up for any of the Buffalo Bills would move back, however you as we see again, we have two teams that they're in your conference, that you're going to be giving a impact player, too, before you could pick your player.
And I understand that you're gonna have a second or third.
But you're talking about two teams that were in the A F C championship game just a year ago.
I know how quickly things can happen in the NFL.
How things can change.
However, these two teams are in the answer. Jim.
So you figure they're not gonna be teams that are going to be drafting in the top 10 next year.
So giving up those things for a future first of future second, to be kind of tough because it's gonna be at the lower part of the round now two moves that they possibly could make.
But I don't see the likelihood if if the Titans and Chiefs were in the NFC, I could see that happening.
But as far as as far as that goes, I think the Buffalo Bills would not, you know, give them another pick unless the deal was just too sweet.
And they gave up, You know, a couple if they had a first future first in the future, third next year to move to move up into that slot.
But the Titans and Chiefs are to team two other teams that do not have the available resource is to trade for the Buffalo Bills to trade back with.
So that takes care of those two.
Now, the third part of this, which I think is gonna be very interesting, is, um, you have you have teams on here that do not have a second round pick.
Now, this could be very interesting.
You know, I took a look at these.
You have five teams currently in the NFL in the 2020 draft that do not have a second round pick now what does that mean? Well, here's a scenario that would play out If these teams wanted to get back up and get a first round pick from the Buffalo Bills, the 22nd overall.
They would be giving up the 20 21st 1st round pick and maybe another pick as well.
So they're way too.
Their way to cir***vent that is they would.
They would give up a 20 21st 1st round pick to the Buffalo Bills in order to get the 22nd pick overall, while the Bills would still hold their own second round pick.
So if the Bills did this, there would be they wouldn't be drafting until 54.
I think I believe so.
But they didn't draft until 54.
They wouldn't have would be completely out of the first round.
So if there was a player not on the board, that they didn't great is the first round talent.
And you know, because they've been hitting on first round picks over the last three years and because they've been heading out picks that they have to re sign in later rounds, it could be a scenario where the way.
Okay, we're gonna have two first round picks in the following year, which would be an amazing thing to have.
So that all that all told, we look at these teams currently that do not have a second round pick that the Buffalo Bills possibly could trade with and trade Give their first round pick 22nd overall To these teams, you have the Redskins, the 40 Niners, the Saints, the Patriots and the Raiders.
Who? You look at all them.
So the Redskins currently have obviously the second overall pick.
They have a ton of cap money.
They currently have seven picks, but they pick first.
We checked this bad boy out.
Let me see the draft here.
Yeah, as far as the Bengals.
The Redskins go.
They pick number two overall, obviously.
And they're gonna take Chase Young, as we've said before on.
Then they don't pick until the 66th pick overall.
So I mean, you got all those players in between there.
They're gonna be drafted, and you have to rebuild that team.
Ron Rivera is one of those guys that he wants to have his guys in there.
Although they do have to fourth round picks in the third round pick into seven.
Ah, there Possibility to treat with the bills if they give a 20 21st 1st round pick.
Now you have Ah, Dwayne Haskins.
He's on his rookie deal.
You have Alex Smith, You gotta wait his contract out.
Unfortunately, Um, and that being said, if you wait, if you wait his deal out, then you're gonna have some more money than the following year.
But you're not gonna have a first round pick the following year.
So, um, that's the That's the Redskins, and it's a possibility that could happen.
Uh, so we that's the 1st 1 So that is, Will the circle that one to say? That's possibility.
As far as the 40 Niners go, they currently have $12 million under the cap, but they have 61 players under contract.
They don't have a quarterback that's on their rookie deal, and they only have six picks.
So if I was still get their draft board, they currently have.
They have a first round pick at number 31.
They do not pick again until the fifth round.
They have the 31st overall pick and in the heart and 56th pick.
So if they wanted to get an extra pick, you know, um, the 40 Niners have to fifth round picks and 1/6 round pick.
Well, the Buffalo Bills already have 2/5 and 36 That's not gonna help him there and then they have to stop.
So the way that the 40 Niners are built currently with John Lynch and Shanahan have done over there is they have loaded up their team very well with first round picks, especially on the defensive side of the ball.
They've been able to get to book and tackles on the office of side of the ball to protect Garoppolo and ensure that running game.
I mean, they went to the Super Bowl.
I mean, anytime a team goes to the Super Bowl is one of those things you have to.
The formula worked for that for that team.
Um, in going over those numbers, I mean, it would be tough for the 40 Niners, currently two after the rookie picks that they have, they have $12 million.
Grover, take their $12 million under the cap, and after they draft all of their players, we have $9 million.
So could they take another first round pick while giving up a first round the following year? Yeah, because they they're in a very similar situation where they've all these defensive guys in the office Attackers that they've drafted over the past few years is that starting hit on them? So those are some players that are gonna need to be re signed so you could sacrifice a first round pick unless you're trying to recycle a position.
Now, what I mean by that is if, for example, they start hitting on all these first round picks and you have a defensive end, that is a You know, you're worried that you're not gonna be able to re sign him, or for some reason, things aren't working out.
You know Solomon Thomas, for example.
So what they're going to do is instead of re signing him into painting of a big chunk of their salary cap with the do is they'll just recycle that player with another first round of the following year.
So that could be another scenario that happens.
Like I said, these just what if scenarios.
I mean, I I like exploring the draft and talking about certain things like that, and in breaking this down, it's fun to see the different kind of possibilities that could happen a draft time, because it's such a It's such a train wreck, what happens and draft time so and I have a really good time with that.
So as far as the other teams we're talking about, we're talking about the Saints, Patriots and Raiders.
The Saints also offer a very intriguing possibility that currently hold the 24th overall pick.
So what you would be giving the Saints is you would be given the same city, 22nd overall pick.
And they already have the 24th overall pick for a 2021 1st rounder as, well.
Depending on how Breeze comes back and how he plays next year, you gotta assume that they're gonna be drafting in the twenties in the next year.
That's the other thing you got to try to take into consideration a lot of these teams that give up future first round picks either a draft time or whatever.
They already they feel that the pick that they're giving you is not gonna be a good pick.
Okay, it's going to be in the twenties.
It's gonna be hopefully in the thirties, but it's gonna be a high pick.
They're confident in their in their ability and their team that they're gonna be giving you a high pick.
The team that's receiving the first round pick.
You have to assume that the team that's giving you that pick is going to take a quarterback.
Now if we look, Redskins already have their quarterback.
40 Niners have their quarterback.
Saints, who knows is going on with Hill and Breeze there.
But Bree's already said he's gonna be there for an extra year.
The Patriots, Who knows what Brady's going to do there and the Raiders, and it's fun to see that the Patriots and the Raiders don't have a second round pick, and they're inevitably tied to each other with this whole time Brady fiasco.
So I don't know what's going on.
Um, I'd have to talk with DP in sports on that, so we're gonna have a conversation very soon.
As far as that goes, you got to think the Saints were are unlikely to give up a first round of the following year because they would need that first rounder, possibly for the quarterback that replaces Drew Brees.
Not saying it'll happen.
I don't think he has owns a calculator down there in the bayou, so he has been kicking the can down down the road as far as ****ey Loomis Aspira.
Drew Brees is concerned with his contract and recycling that you got Sean Payton there.
The Saints will currently currently have $9 million there, $99 on the cap of 57 players under contract, and after they sign, they'll have 6.7.
So could they take another first round pick? They possibly could take another first round pick, But I'm not.
I'm not so sure what the likelihood of that would be.
So I mean, I guess you could kind of lightly in pencil circle the Saints.
They could probably don't trade up in the 22nd pick and then get the Buffalo Bills back.
The next two teams.
The Patriots? No, I'm not giving the Patriots anything, especially you want to see.
Here's the thing. Bill Belichick.
If he could never have a first round pick again, he would never have won because he hates paying them.
He hits the 50 year option.
He hates giving these guys a bunch of money.
He wants guys that want to come and do their job.
Go home and that's it.
But you think of this.
Why not only an A F C opponent, but a division rival.
You're gonna give two back to back first round picks to no, not signing up for that.
Now the Patriots have $41 million with 56 players under contract.
Who knows that the whole time Brady scenario is and they hold 12 picks already? So the chances that you would get a future first round pick from the Patriots who are parentally in the playoffs in the championships in divisional rounds.
I mean, who knows what with the scenario with Brady is gonna play out how that's gonna be what's going on with free agency.
If he leaves, it might be a possibility, but I don't forsee Seattle.
See a lot of teams that give draft picks, especially first rounders to division rivals.
I don't see that happening at all.
So to give the Patriots the 22nd 23rd overall picked it back to you know that's not that's not a possibility.
And as far as the Raiders go, they already have two first rounders this year.
Um, I don't think they would trade back in to get another first rounder.
I mean, they had three first round picks last year.
They have to this year.
Would they be likely of giving up a first round pick? They're likely to do that.
I mean, they could bundle their 19th and 12 try to move up for this year, but they're not a likely candidate to try to 1/4 the Bills first round pick now, unless they're trying to get Tau one now, I don't understand.
I don't know if Gruden wants to go after Burrow.
That's a possibility that maybe in another discussion we talked about next week.
But if the let's say if I'll say it, for instance, the Raiders, they give up the first round pick in 2021 in the second round pick in 2021 maybe like 1/4 in 2021 to the Buffalo Bills and the Bills give them their 22nd pick.
Then the Raiders then could bundle up 20 to 19 and 12 to possibly get Tau one.
So it's an interesting scenario that, I mean, that's what it could be, something we talk about next week, which should to see how that would play out.
But a SW far as that goes, that's what I got when we talk about the draft value chart all the time here, trying to trade picks out trade Pickman.
So, uh, yeah, just to recap really quick for you guys who wanted to take a look at it.
The teams that do not have a first round pick that the Bills on and in this one of scenario we're talking about is what if the Buffalo Bills traded out of the 22nd pick and give their first round pick to somebody else? That's basically what we were talking about today.
So first we examine the teams that didn't have a first round pick.
Texas Bears, Rams, Steelers, Rams don't have a first round pick until 2027 or whatever.
They could use another first round pick, But it seems unlikely that with Steelers and Texans, two teams that you're going to be battling with for in the A F C for playoff on wild cards, you don't really want to give them a first round pick and then that the Bears are probably one of the last teams that you could probably trade a first round pick two.
They're they're hurting, really bad as Faras.
Their team is going with their with their salary cap.
They can't afford to get another first rounder.
But these are teams that do not have a first round pick that possibly trade with the Bills.
And the compensation for us for these scenarios is the Bills get the 20 21st 1st round pick of these teams.
So obviously we stayed with the Rams.
They're not gonna be getting that.
The other scenario we look to was the teams that don't have many picks.
So you look at the Titans and the Chiefs, two teams that were in the NFC championship game, Probably four reason probably going for broke.
You're not gonna give a 22nd overall pick tow er f C team, plus the team that was in the NFC championship game.
So those air teams that are probably gonna be competing and they're gonna be very doing very, very well, so those seem like they're off the table on then.
Finally, we talked about just now teams that don't have a second round pick, they will want to jump in and take the bills 22nd overall pick and then in exchange, they're gonna get the first round pick the following year.
We talk about the Redskins.
40 Niner scenes.
Patriots and Raiders Raiders already have two picks.
The Patriots are division rival.
Plus you've given them back to back first round picks.
Saints are intriguing, but I'm not really sure how that would work out the 40 Niners of the same way.
The Redskins seemed like the likely candidate, especially with the um but the relationship that goes on with Ron Rivera and Sean McDermott.
Possibly they could trade up because they don't have a second round pick.
They have the second overall pick and then the 66 picks.
So in order to try to sneak in there and try to pick up a body, especially a cornerback, that that is desperately needed in Washington, that could be some of those.
So, guys, thanks for joining us for the seventh installment of the what if scenario.
What if the Buffalo Bills traded out of the 22nd pick? And be sure, stay tuned for some episodes this this week over on our YouTube channel as well.
A SportsCastr and I am out
