The Buffalo Bills have a fully loaded list in the 2022 NFL Draft. There are one or two exceptions (Corner backup, backup tackle) so this may be the time where we see some trade. The Bulls can package up a lot of choices to go up and get a strong player, and give a team that is looking for the bodies a chance to dig more at Apple.
Buffalo is currently up at 25, and if they see a player who is particularly fond of his fancy, they can go up in the first round. What kind of ammunition do they have using DraftPux? Let’s take a look.
We will use two charts for our exercises here today; The classic Jimmy Johnson trade price chart and the more updated Rich Hill chart. They are identical, but not identical.
Jimmy Johnson chart
- Round 1 – Number 25 
- Round 2 – Number 57 
- Round 3 – Number 89 
- Round 4 – Number 130 
- Goal 5 – Number 168 
- Round 6 – Number 185 
- Round 6 – Number 203 
- Round 7 – Number 231 
If the Buffalo want the All-Bats to go to the Draft, their draft point is 1289 points, which will bring them closer to the top ten. The sixth overall selection is worth 1300 points while the 11th selection is 1250 points. They will have to use them to get future selections in the top ten.
The 12th overall pick is worth 1,200 points, roughly equivalent to Buffalo’s first, second and third picks in the draft. The 13th overall pick is worth 1150 points, so Buffalo can send one, two, and three picks and get back to the starting fifth rounder.
Selection 14 may occur with the first round and second round selections, with the fourth round selection and the sixth round selection. That’s tough value, though, so the first three choices make more sense.
The trade-off for pick 15 is as clear as it can get on the chart. Buffalo’s first and second picks are worth a combined 1050 points.
Buffalo’s first-round and second-round picks are too many for No. 17, and the Los Angeles Chargers really don’t have anything to send back to the Bills in the form of a draft draft. The Bills can send their first-round plus third-, fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-rounders high, but it seems a lot more complicated.
At 18, the Bills could use their first-round selection combined with third-round and fourth-round picks.
The 19th pick is worth 875 points, so Buffalo’s first, third-, and later sixth-round picks will need to go to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Going to 20 won’t be easy, as the Pittsburgh Steelers probably want to go up, not down, so Buffalo will have to pick their first and third rounds to Pittsburgh.
In order to move up to 21, the Bills will need to trade their fourth round, fifth round and two sixth rounds to get the necessary capital.
Going up to 22 would cost both a fourth and a fifth round pick. To get to 25-of-23, the Bills will be participating with their fourth-round pick and going 25 to 24 will cost Buffalo’s fifth-rounder.
Rich Hill chart
- Round 1 – Number 25 [229.88]
- Round 2 – Number 57 [95.73]
- Round 3 – Number 89 [45.94]
- Round 4 – Number 130 [18.49]
- Goal 5 – Number 168 [7.93]
- Round 6 – Number 185 [5.43]
- Round 6 – Number 203 [3.64]
- Round 7 – Number 231 [1.95]
Once again looking at the Dataca trade, Buffalo’s pickles are worth $ 408.99, which will lead Buffalo to the eighth overall pick. To get to the ninth, the Bills will need to send out their first round, second round, third round, and fourth round picks – and the sixth pick will have their top three picks.
The choice could be 11 for the top three picks, but the Bills will also receive a mid-fifth in return.
Selection 12 reduces Buffalo’s first-round and second-round picks and compensation for fourth-rounders. The 13th election is the first and second round picks, as well as the fifth round and the sixth round pick later.
The 14th election is the cleanest on the chart; Buffalo’s first-round and second-round picks are within 0.3 points.
The chart below, further down to the 15, is a drawback. Buffalo’s first period and second round are too many, so Buffalo will need a fifth rounder late. Select 16 first round and second round will be selected, but late fourth rounder returns.
The Buffalo trades will draw their first-round, third-round and fourth-round picks to 17. The first round of the Bills will be in the third round, the fifth round, and the next selection for 18. Just getting first-round pick and third-round pick might be enough to get the 19th overall pick, but Buffalo has to add a seventh rounder to get the full price. The 20th overall pick is eligible for the Buffalo first-round and third-rounder, but they will get a sixth round return.
Select 21 is in non-human land; Buffalo’s first-round and third-round picks will be plenty, and they’ll get a starting fifth-rounder back.
Pick 22 is one of Buffalo’s first rounds, fourth rounds, and sixth rounders.
Buffalo’s fifth-round and starting sixth-round picks may be enough to move the two spots to 23, but they are more likely to get first- and fourth-round picks.
To go up 25 to 24, it costs Buffalo’s fifth-round pick in a pretty neat move. If Buffalo is moving to a location, it’s likely a war-torn situation. So who knows?
Now when you are drafting your languages, you have a better sense of what the cost of trading in the first round will be.
