Bills Rumors: Draft, Taylor, Whaley

Before today’s big trade went down between the Eagles and the Browns for the No. 2 pick, Cleveland ostensibly fielded calls from several clubs with interest in moving up. Only the Browns know the full list of suitors, but we can rule out one team. Geoff Mosher of 97.5 The Fanatic (Twitter link) asked a Bills source if the team was ever in talks with the Browns for the No. 2 pick, to which the team source succinctly replied, “Hell no.”

Here’s latest out of Buffalo:

  • The Bills have yet to call other teams about possible draft trades, GM Doug Whaley says (Twitter link via Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News). Whaley added that calls will be made next week.
  • Whaley says trading down would be “more intriguing” than trading up, as Mike Rodak of writes. The Bills currently hold the No. 19 pick in the first round.
  • The Bills GM says there’s a “very, very good” chance that the team will be taking a quarterback at some point in the draft, as Joe Buscaglia of WKBW tweets.
  • For what it’s worth, it sounds like Whaley did not take the public comments made by Tyrod Taylor‘s agent to heart, as Carucci tweets. “He’s doing what he’s getting paid to do. If he was my agent, I’d hope he’d do the same,” Whaley said. Whaley added that he has yet to receive trade interest in Taylor (link).
  • When asked if a first-round selection at QB would compete for the starting job, Whaley said no and reaffirmed that Taylor is the unquestioned starter (via Rodak).
  • TCU wide receiver Kolby Listenbee made his final pre-draft visit today with the Bills, Adam Caplan of tweets.

    I know Taylor no Brady but bills should give the dude a chance. Bills were lost when he didn’t play and look like a decent team when he played. A rookie a gamble. Why not try to improve around him

      I completely agree. You’re not going to give him $20MM a year or anything, but I’ll be shocked if the Bills use a Day 1 or 2 pick on a QB when they already have Taylor.
