As chatter increases about the possibility of the Texans trading the first pick in the NFL Draft, the Falcons are the usual suspect for the other end of the deal.
But there might be more than one team interested.
Bills General Manager Doug Whaley said during an interview with WGR (and transcribed by the team’s Twitter account) that he’d be interested in picking higher than ninth.
“There are players on the board we won’t trade away from and players we would trade up to get,” Whaley said. “If we think a guy would help us make the playoffs, why wouldn’t we make the deal?“
Whaley spoke about South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who would strengthen an already good line. Pairing him with Mario Williams and defensive tackles Marcel Dareus and Kyle Williams would immediately create one of the league’s best lines.
It’s an interesting idea, and at least gives us something to talk about for the next two weeks.
