    Default different offseason strategy

    Buffalo Bills

    Resign Byrd or franchise him
    Sign Ellerbe, Scott, and Keller (more affordable options that give us more ability to sign the next player - plus Keller gives us a great offensive option without blowing the bank on Wallace or Bowe, remembering that a good TE is a great bail out option for a young QB))
    Sign Levitre
    If you sign Levitre, take Jordan or Jarvis Jones in the first (great options for the OLB/DE position we will run in the hybrid 3-4 D)
    If you cant sign Levitre, draft Fischer or Warmack in the first (we WILL need the Oline help)
    Take the best QB available in the 2nd (we all agree that we need a QB, but over-reaching will not solve that problem)
    Or trade next year's second rounder for Nick Foles/Mallet
    Or trade this year's second rounder for Nick Foles/Mallet
    If you trade next year's second, then take the best WR available in the 2nd (ie: T Williams) - there is a lot of depth at wr this year
    Take an inside LB in the third


    why would you want a five dollar foot-long when you could have a zero dollar six inch?

    Franchise Byrd. Levitre walks.

    Sign TE and CB in free agency.

    Trade 4th rounder for Alex Smith.

    Mingo/Jordan/Ogletree/Ansah at #8.

    WR in 2nd round.

    It's never a good idea to let a player go and then draft the same position that you could have signed, that's what teams do with very little needs. either we already have Levitre's replacement on the roster now, we will draft one later or we are re-signing him.

    I like most of the other choices you have Buffalo taking, I don't get the love for TE Keller, the most TD's he's ever had in a season was 5, he only played 8 games last year and his yardage totals aside from 2011 are nothing spectacular, he seems like one of those underachievers to me but many like him for some reason.

    Really like this (especially how to use the first) outside of agreeing on Alex Smith. Just think the dude is too similar to what we are trying to move on from.

    Re-sign Byrd.
    Sign LB Paul Kruger.
    Sign TE Jared Cook.
    Dumpster dive for a WR.
    OLB Jarvis Jones in the 1st, QB in the 2nd, WR/CB in the 3rd/4th.
    Trade our 5th for Alex Smith.
    Let Buddy rub his 2 magic nickles together & snag us the bargain bin pick of the day with our 6th.

    = Playoffs

    Just say NO to drafting a lineman in the first. Just ask Dallas how that worked out for them.

    Tyron Smith over JJ Watt?
    @JJGauna Sack Artist

    Trade Up Rumors Mock 3-29
    1. Jadeveon Clowney DE
    3. Donte Moncrief WR
    4. JaWuan James OT
    5. Aaron Murray QB
    6. Spencer Long OG
    7. James Wilder Jr RB

    There were 13-14 players taken ahead of JJ Watt and most (if not all) should not have been, so this doesnt prove anything. Plus Tyron Smith has a really good future, so taking him was not a bad pick. Imagine how bad Dallas' s line would be more than it already is without him. Then take the Bills line without Levitre and a potential rookie qb back there...

    And I like Jordan as much as you do (probably my favorite at 8), but there is a very real chance that he is gone when we pick so we would have to keep our options open.
