The Buffalo Bills finished the 2022 NFL season with a 13-3 record, only to fall to the Cincinnati Bengals in the Divisional round of the playoffs.
Due to their success, the Bills are slated to pick 27th overall in the upcoming draft.
However, many around the league believe that the Bills are looking to move up in the draft if they can find a willing trade partner.
In a recent report by Matt Miller, he believes it is “very possible” that the Bills move up in the draft.
Over the past ten seasons, the Bills have gotten significant value out of their first-round picks, a testament to their scouting department.

Six of these ten players are still on the team, including Josh Allen, Tre’Davious White, and Shaq Lawson.
According to Mike Chiari’s article that discusses Miller’s report, “the Bills only own six picks in the draft, and would perhaps have to part with future picks,” which is likely the only way that they will be able to trade up.
While the Bills were one of the AFC’s best teams in 2022, there is always room for improvement.
They were the NFL’s fourth-highest-scoring team last season, and their defense allowed the second-fewest points as well.
There are a few positional groups that have been identified for them, including offensive linemen, and additional wide receivers.
With the draft looming, the Bills are running out of time to get a deal done if they want to move up in the draft.
