Another loss has the Buffalo Bills set to end up with a nice pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. We take a quick look at the latest draft order update.
It’s Christmas Eve which means it’s a perfect time to sit around a dinner table and argue about the Buffalo Bills.
Oh what a tradition.
One topic of conversation this year could be where the Bills stand in the 2019 NFL Draft, and whether a win next Sunday would be a good thing or a bad thing.
Here is the latest regarding the draft order:
As you can see, the Bills are guaranteed to have another high draft pick in 2019. That is bad in the sense that it means the team missed out on the postseason and struggled all year. But it is good when considering the team is filled with young talent and adding a cornerstone piece via the draft could lead to a surprising 2019 season.
Bills fans don’t have to spend the entire offseason debating quarterback prospects now that Josh Allen is the starter and Matt Barkley is the backup. The focus can be paid to offensive line and wide receiver prospects, and perhaps some top defensive line prospects as well.
This is a nice change after spending all last offseason constantly talking about all the top quarterback prospects. The team got their guy and can focus on other positions for once.
Some Bills fans may be hoping for a loss in Week 17, while others always want the team to win no matter what. I’m sure this would make for some great holiday conversation, in case you missed out on discussing the topic over Thanksgiving.
