The NFL Draft begins Thursday and the Bills have the opportunity to be major players in the first round.
With two first-round picks, and a need for a quarterback, many believe the Bills could be a team to watch to move into the No. 2 spot currently occupied by the Giants.
The Bills currently own the No. 12 and No. 22 overall picks. They traded Tyrod Taylor to the Browns this offseason, and added A.J. McCarron to take his place. However, Buffalo hasn’t had a franchise quarterback for over a decade, and this could be the draft they target one.
According to NFL.com, the Bills are unlikely to move into the No. 2 spot, but could still move up if the opportunity strikes.

He’s owned it. He’ll have to earn the trust of his teammates, the fan base and the organization. He’s done all he could do and he will have to do more when he gets here.
