The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / The Buffalo-Kansas City Trade in the Draft Seems to be in Favor of the Bills

The Buffalo-Kansas City Trade in the Draft Seems to be in Favor of the Bills

Looking back at the Bills-Chiefs Trade

Apr 27, 2017; Philadelphia, PA, USA; Tre'Davious White (LSU) is selected as the number 27 overall pick to the Buffalo Bills in the first round the 2017 NFL Draft at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Mandatory Credit: Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

We are far past the 2017 NFL Draft and are just looking to get on with the season. Let’s take a look back at what was probably the second biggest thing that happened behind the San Francisco/Chicago trade for Mitch Trubisky. The Bills had the #10 pick overall in the draft and when they were on the board, they decided to trade back. The Chiefs agreed to send the #27 overall pick, a third round pick and their first round pick next year to the Bills for #10. No one knew what were the Chiefs were going to at #10.

When Roger Goodell announced the Chiefs pick and said Patrick Mahomes, the football world was shock. The Chiefs traded up 17 spots to draft a quarterback even though they already have a starter in Alex Smith. It’s obvious that the Chiefs are looking to move on from Smith and he even said it himself that this may be his last season with the team.

While the Chiefs took a quarterback that will need to develop under Andy Reid, Bills head coach Sean McDermott and his crew decided to take cornerback Tre’Davious White to bulk up their secondary. The difference between these two picks is that the Bills drafted someone who will make an immediate impact for the team. The Chiefs drafted someone who may not see the field at all this season.

So how are they winning the trade? 

The Chiefs are not the same team they have been in recent years. Smith is getting older and can’t seem to get past the divisional round, running back Spencer Ware is an above average running back but not one of the top starting backs in the league. The team wasn’t able to re-sign Dontari Poe and they decided to release their #1 receiver Jeremy Maclin last week.

The offense is ageing, their only true superstar is tight end Travis Kelce but he can’t lead the team to every victory. Mahomes will need to improve his games and get adjusted to the big league. Smith tends to do well in the regular but then just cracks in the playoffs. With Maclin being gone and Ware in the backfield carrying the rock, Smith may have a lot of pressure on him. He’s already got the pressure on him that he may not be back after this season so if you keep adding more on, he’s going to fail. If Smith has a bad season and Mahomes steps in, I don’t think Mahomes will be able play well in his rookie season.

The Bills on the other hand look ready to go and want to win. They got stronger in the offseason with different acquisitions on both sides of the ball. Even if the Bills don’t do as well this season, if the Chiefs fail this year, Buffalo is in a great position to do big things with that pick.
