The Buffalo Bills traded up with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the seventh pick in the first-round of the NFL Draft and selected Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen. Buffalo sent its 12th pick in the first-round, and its 53rd and 56th picks in the second-round to Tampa Bay. Allen came under fire on Wednesday after the discovery of a series of racially insensitive tweets that he made while in high school in 2012 and 2013. Allen apologized in interviews with ESPN and said that he was “young and dumb” at the time. Buffalo Bills’ management then traded the team’s 22nd pick in the first-round to the Baltimore Ravens, in exchange for the 16th pick in the first-round. The team selected linebacker Tremaine Edmunds from Virginia Tech. The Bills sent Baltimore three picks: a first-round, third-round and fifth-round pick this year. Both trades during the first round leave Buffalo with just one pick on day two of the NFL draft, the 96th pick in the third-round.
