On this episode of Talking Buffalo, the NFL Draft has finally arrived and Patrick Moran is making his final Buffalo Bills predictions with analysis of some possible scenarios just hours before the real thing is set to begin.

After spending weeks if not months believing that a non-wide receiver was very much in play with Buffalo’s first pick depending on how things fell, Patrick’s heard enough to now believe it’s a receiver no matter what theme inside the walls at One Bills Drive. That makes the question not if the Bills will take a wide receiver in the first round, but rather which one and at what point. Patrick lays out scenarios that could have them go as high as Tennessee at seven to go get Rome Odunze, the mid-to-late teens to fish out Brian Thomas Jr. or even just a few spots to ensure one of the tier of other guys they like to be available.

In fact, Patrick lays out his prediction that the Bills ultimately move up three spots with the Green Bay Packers to get the wide receiver he thinks is their best fit, Xavier Legette over Xavier Worthy and Adonai Mitchell. In his quick four-round mock Patrick explains why his choice would be Legette and in fact it’s just the first of two trades he makes on behalf of Brandon Beane. After being rejected in a trade-up offer in the second round Patrick stands pat and explains why safety Kamren Kinchens is the perfect Bills pick there, even if PFF thinks the selection stinks. Buffalo doesn’t have a third round pick but that changes when Patricks wings a deal and ends up grabbing a guard he thinks can compete for a starting job right away, Cooper Beebe. He finishes up with a wide receiver double dip in round four.

Patrick also talks about not sleeping on Mack Hollins if Buffalo doesn’t dip, some free agent veteran options still out there if Beane doesn’t adequately address edge over the next few days, how he’d be willing to move up and pay the hefty price for Odunze were it his call and much more.
