The Buffalo Bills are trying hard to make the biggest splash of the draft, reports Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.
Florio says he's learned that the Bills are "burning up the phone lines" in an effort to trade up from the No. 9 pick to No. 1 or 2 (owned by the Houston Texans and St. Louis Rams, respectively).
The Bills have been rumored to be interested in a trade up for several weeks now, but nothing has materialized. A move up to No. 1 or 2 would almost certainly cost the team the No. 9 pick, a 2015 first-rounder, and likely additional mid-round picks.
Whom the Bills are targeting remains unclear. Jadeveon Clowney, Sammy Watkins and Greg Robinson are all possibilities.
The Bills are a franchise in transition, with new ownership expected to be in place before the start of the 2014 season. Perhaps the current front office staff knows it may not be around for the 2015 draft and has decided to mortgage the future to win as many games this season as it can.
