The Bills had the No. 10 choice in the 2017 draft, however they decided to trade it to the Chiefs in exchange for the No. 27 pick, a third-round pick, and a 2018 first-round choice.
Patrick Mahomes ended up being the 10th pick and trading away a pick that became a player who has actually won MVP and Super Bowl MVP would generally be viewed as a bad minute for an NFL team. The Bills function in that deal hasnt resulted in much scorn, however, and what they did with the picks has something to do with that.
They took cornerback TreDavious White with the 27th general pick in 2017 and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds with the 2018 first-rounder while also landing left take on Dion Dawkins after other trades involving the third-round choice they got in the offer. Quarterback Josh Allen wasnt gotten with a pick from that offer, however head coach Sean McDermott still discussed him while saying things worked out for both sides.
” They got a great player in Patrick, and I believe we constructed too with Josh, Tremaine and TreDavious– nevertheless you kind of shape that, in regards to choices that ended up being choices,” McDermott said, through Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com. “I think both teams fared terribly well.”
Understanding how things would turn out for Mahomes in the NFL, the Bills might do something different with the benefit of a time maker however a win this Sunday would make that a more tough choice.
