1 – ESPN reporters tab Bills divisional draft winners

In reviewing the 2017 NFL draft by division the Bills were matched up against their AFC East counterparts by four ESPN reporters who cover each of the clubs. In taking stock of the prospects added to the rosters of the Bills, Dolphins, Jets and Patriots, three out of four reporters chose Buffalo as the team that helped themselves the most.

Here are a couple of excerpts from their assessments.

Rich Cimini, New York Jets reporter: The Jets drafted the best player, safety Jamal Adams, but the Bills helped themselves the most — from a long-term perspective. Acquiring a 2018 first-round pick from the Chiefs will be a valuable bargaining chip in next year’s draft, which could enable them to get into position to pick a blue-chip quarterback. The Bills also managed to pick up three potential Day 1 starters, including exciting wide receiver Zay Jones

It wasn’t anything Bills hadn’t heard before. But there was an added layer to how Bills’ new general manager intends to build a long-term winner in Buffalo that parallels what head coach Sean McDermott has been preaching since he arrived.

As Brandon Beane was introduced to the Bills faithful for the first time, he laid out his philosophy of building a roster into a perennial contender. It is an approach that has brought a handful of NFL teams widespread success.

“Best on best”
When the team went into one-on-one drills the coaching staff took advantage of matching up their first-round pick against their second-round pick with Tre’Davious White squaring up against Zay Jones.

“It’s never a bad thing going against Tre’Davious,” said Jones. “A great cornerback. He’s a top guy. He proves it. He’s a hard worker, dedicated and knows his stuff. Going against someone like that is definitely going to prepare me for Sunday.”

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — In the midst of searching for the next general manager of the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres, owners Terry and Kim Pegula will add another task to their list: finding the next GM of their other franchise, the Buffalo Bills.

Terry Pegula said Sunday that he and his wife have yet to assemble a list of candidates for the Bills’ job. But here are some names that could emerge in the coming days:

The NFL draft is over. Months and months of anticipation and hope and speculation culminated over the weekend in Philadelphia, and now it’s all done.

If you’re an NFL fan, this feels like the morning after graduation. It was all you could think about for the longest time, it happened, you had the party, and now you wake up the next day and your first thought is, “OK. Now what?”

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — It is not uncommon in the NFL for scouts and personnel directors to be dismissed or to change teams after the draft each spring.

What seemed strange for the Buffalo Bills was owner Terry Pegula attaching partial responsibility for last week’s draft to general manager Doug Whaley, whom Pegula fired Sunday.

Sean McDermott has never led a team in an NFL game, but the Buffalo Bills‘ first-year coach has solidified his role as the only leadership figure and chief football decision-maker of the club that hired him in January.

The writing was on the wall for general manager Doug Whaley, who was fired on Sunday, a little more than 12 hours after the 2017 draft ended. McDermott took over Whaley’s duties of speaking to the media prior to the draft and after each selection was made. Twice when discussing decisions made during the draft, McDermott used the word “I” to refer to the moves before stopping himself and using the word “we,” as if he had been reminded to keep up appearances that Whaley still had sway.

AFC East

Buffalo Bills

Best move: Trading down from No. 10 to No. 27 yielded the Bills a third-round pick (No. 91) and, more importantly, a 2018 first-round pick from the Kansas City Chiefs. How the Bills use that extra first-rounder next April will define the success of that trade. If they can package that pick with their original 2018 selection and move up the board for a top quarterback — USC’s Sam Darnold and UCLA’s Josh Rosen are projected as top picks — it could be a franchise-altering move.
