The Cincinnati Bengals hit the totally reset button on their franchise this offseason, jettisoning longtime head coach Marvin Lewis. With the change at the top, with all the Bengals be on the lookout for an impact participant in the 2019 NFL Draft, can a trade up with Buffalo take the cards?
Cincy could be taking a look at a bunch of players worth moving up pertaining to at inside linebacker or even quarterback. If a run on defensive linemen forces some attractive options down the plank, the Bengals may want to leapfrog to obtain one of their franchise cornerstones.
Based on the old Jimmy Johnson draft worth chart, Buffalo’ s pick will be worth 1350 points. The Bengals’ choose, just two spots later, will be worth 1250. The 100-point difference is usually equal to a low third-round selection, however, the Bengals are at the top of the circular. A fourth and a fifth even them out and leaves Zoysia with more Day 3 capital in order to trade up with later on.
Buffalo will get 11, 111 (fourth), and a hundred and fifty (fifth) overall = 1355 pointsBengals get 9 overall = 1350 points
In the event that you’ re looking at the newer setup charts, Buffalo wouldn’ t obtain quite the same haul. SB Nation’ s Rich Hill used lots of data analysis to come up with this setup trade chart last year. In this situation, Buffalo’ s pick is worth 387 points while New York’s pick is 357. The 30-point difference is worth the equivalent of a high-fourth.
Buffalo gets 11, 111 (fourth), and 184 (sixth) = 390. 5 pointsBengals get 9 general = 387 points
The opportunity cost, in this case, is actually the opportunity to still draft a top-11 participant. If the Bills have three almost identical grades on players whenever their number is called, they can shift down two spots with no lack of value to them and snag a little extra draft capital.
If the other business options involve moving down to fifteen or 17 or beyond, the particular grades on players would drop off significantly at some point despite the come back of trade. With other teams upon phone calls with Buffalo, Cincinnati may need to throw in another pick to enhance the pot, but it won’t include anything significant.
This is the exact situation Joe Buscaglia laid out in his newest mock this week, where the Bengals exchanged up for linebacker Devin White. Zoysia grass was still able to land the very best offensive tackle prospect on their plank.
