On this episode of the future award-winning Talking Buffalo Podcast, Patrick Moran is joined by recurring guest and friend Aaron Quinn from the Cover 1 Buffalo podcast in the second of a two part series discussing their Buffalo Bills draft. Today the guys highlight some of their favorite drafts around the league, grade the Bills draft from three years ago in 2018 and dive into a full Buffalo offseason review now that the draft has passed and the team looks to be mostly set going into training camp this summer.
Patrick highlights draft classes of six teams around the league that he really enjoyed, including a pair of Buffalo divisional rivals while Aaron throws in a few teams he liked as well.
From there they go on assign a draft grade to the 2018 class of three years ago, a class that included Josh Allen, Tremaine Edmunds, Harrison Philips, Taron Johnson and Siran Neal. Not only do both guys agree that it’s an easy “A” but take it one step further—putting it on par, at least early on with two of the Bills best draft classes of all-time.
Before calling it a day they take a look at the big picture now that the Bills offseason player movement is mostly over. While admittedly lamenting the Bills not adding a game-changing tight end or end rusher via free agency or trade, both guys credit the team building philosophy of Brandon Beane and agree that it’s the continued development of some of the younger players with room to get better—guys like Ed Oliver, Edmunds, Devin Singletary, Zack Moss, Gabriel Davis and Dawson Knox that’ll ultimately determine if this is a franchise capable of overtaking Kansas City and anyone else as the cream of the AFC crop in 2021.
