This Trade Up Scenario Should Excite Bills Fans. Here's how they can make a huge leap up in the first round.

There will be plenty of discussion around what Brandon Beane could do in the 2024 NFL Draft while holding 11 picks, including 28th overall. We’ve discussed wide receiver options that the Bills could target, but one idea continues to rattle around in my head – a trade up for a truly elite receiver option.

There are three elite wide receivers in the 2024 NFL draft – Marvin Harrison Jr., Malik Nabers, and Rome Odunze. All three of them possess different traits, meaning different teams will have these receivers ranked differently on their big boards based on what prototype they are looking for.

Regardless, it seems at this point that Harrison and Nabers find themselves as the most likely first two receivers to get selected, with Odunze likely to go third.

Brandon Beane Could Have A Trade Partner With Chicago

One trade scenario, in particular, continues to stand out to me – what if Odunze is on the board when the Chicago Bears are on the clock with the ninth overall pick?

Chicago has only three picks in this draft after the first overall pick, which looks as close to a lock as possible to be Caleb Williams out of USC. With selecting their new franchise quarterback, Bears general manager Ryan Poles could be inclined to stockpile more assets to build around Caleb. Chicago already has D.J. Moore and newly-acquired Keenan Allen as an elite receiver duo, and the Bills have a ton of ammunition to work with.

It’s the perfect fit.

If Odunze, a 6’3” 212 lb wide receiver that has true alpha potential with strong hands, great route running, and impeccable strength at the catch point is on the board, and Beane wanted to get aggressive, the Bears would be wise to continue to build out their draft pick portfolio to aid their rebuild.

What Would A Trade Package Look Like To Move Up To 9th Overall?

What would it cost? The Bills were on the opposite side of a similar trade in 2017 when they sent the 10th overall pick to the Chiefs in exchange for 27th overall, 91st overall (late third round) and a first the following year. That pick was none other than Patrick Mahomes.

Buffalo doesn’t have a third this year, but they have two 4ths. 28th overall, 133rd, and 2025 1st might be enough to get it done, and Odunze is the type of player that would be worth it.

Wide receiver is a position being widely discussed for the Bills in this draft class. Beane deciding to fully go for it to land a wide receiver prospect that could be the heir apparent behind Stefon Diggs is an option to keep on the radar on draft night.
