    Bills Attempted to Trade Up for Zack Moss

    https-::www.buffalorumblings.com:202014:21245072:buffalo-bills-attempted-to-trade-up-for-utah-rb-zack-moss-per-brandon-beane


    As it ultimately turned out, the second day of the 2020 NFL Draft was the best time to draft a running back. Out of the 18 tailbacks drafted, half were selected in rounds two and three. That situation had Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane sweating at his home draft headquarters as he reportedly had a decent grade on the teamís eventual third-round selection,Zack Moss.


    ďYeah, the second one was much more stressful, to be honest with you,Ē said Beane. ďWe had Moss in a pretty good spot up there. Once those other backs, there was starting to be a little mini run on backs. I was worried about him. Fortunately, we actually were making some calls. Heís a guy that I felt fit a need, but we had a little higher than where we got him. Iím not saying we had him in the first round or anything like that, Iím just saying he was sticking out on the board. And as Iíve tried to explain to you guys before, if I got a guy thatís sticking out on the board with a need, Iím going to try to go get them.Ē


    During a post-draft interview with several members of the media, Beane not only revealed that he was nervous the team wouldnít be able to select Moss, but that he had a high enough grade on the runner from Utah that he was making calls to possibly execute a trade up for him in return for a day three pick:

    So basically Beane tried to move up for a guy he was able to get by staying put. The other GM's saved him from his own mistake.

    You don't think a GM trading up for a guy who he can get by staying put is an issue? Wow.

    Yeah, stupid Beane. He should have looked at his crystal ball to see that Moss would have been available with their original 3rd rounder.

    Beane does want to trade up like every round every year. The difference this year is he tried and failed 3 times. Someone needs to drop a valium in his coffee on draft day

    he's not giving up the farm to do so. I would rather they get the guy they want than settle for someone they didnt really like like we did with Jp Losman and EJ Manuel.
    He also stated, they want guys they think can make the team since there's only so much roster spots

    It means we probably had the best draft without a 1st rounder ever.

    Diggs was worth the 1st by any measure.

    SUCCESS MAJOR LEAGUE STYLE!

    Oh ok. So, if you need a new car and you walk into a car dealership and say "I'll give you $25,000 for that car" and the dealer sells it to you, then you find the original sticker price in the glove compartment, and it was only $20,000, no big deal right? Goal achieved- you got a car. **** the $5k you wasted...

    Whatever the market will bear?



    I'd ask you for $30,000.00

    We had an outstanding draft and we had a little luck.

    Rather be lucky than good, no worries we have both.

    you analogy is, you wanted to buy a car for 20K and they wouldnt sell it to you for that price and so you waited and fot it for 15K . How the hell is that a mistake?

    Even if you paid 20K you got the car you wanted. I would also rather pay 20k for a Honda that I wanted than pay 15K for a ford fiesta.

    Either ways they got what they wanted and you're crying about it

    My analogy is if he was able to trade up and pay more for the player than he had to. Since he wasn't able to trade up, the actual analogy would be the dealer refusing to sell it to you for $25k so you go somewhere else and get it for $20k. If the first dealer had sold it to you for that price, you would have lost $5k cuz you offered more than it was worth.

    That's what Beane did

    If you think it's a really good car and don't want to chance losing-out on it, sure you pay the premium. If you can afford the lost $5K and the car turns out to be as good as you thought, yeah, no biggee.

    Lmao. No OL help. No first round pick because we traded it for a WR, then proceeded to draft two more WR's. Drafted a kicker. We couldn't afford it because we spent almost half our draft on one position, drafted a position that we could have filled in UDFA and ignored the second biggest need.

    This site drives me crazy sometimes. When the Bills need a running back, it's all about how RB's are easy to find. But when the Bills are trying to pay a premium so they don't miss out on an RB, somehow that's acceptable. So which is it? Are RB's easy to find, or is it worth paying a premium to not miss out on an RB?

    Beane simply wouldn't give up the farm, so held his ground and got lucky. I call trying good management, so what if he gave up then got lucky. That's like I worked a deal on a Ford then a BMW came in while I was signing papers and it was the same price and higher value so I bought that one. I see no fault. I think you're nit picking a bit here.
