The Buffalo Bills are reportedly willing to trade six picks in order to snag quarterback Josh Allen.
Bleacher Reports Ian Kenyon tweeted Wednesday, “Crazy tidbit on @sticktofootball this morning… Josh Allen could go no. 1, and if he doesnt, the Bills could be looking at packaging six (6!!!) picks to move up to no. 2 to grab Josh Allen.”

That would be huge. Now, the picks arent specified, but youd have to imagine that thered be several first round picks involved. I dont see any other possibility.
Heres the main thing to focus on here. A quarterback damn well better pan out as a superstar if you drop six picks on the guy. He doesnt work out, and the general manager will be updating his resume.
Ive said this before, but I really dont understand all the hype around Allen. Yes, the dude has a big arm. Lots of players and come and gone with big arms. It doesnt guarantee anything. Im not cheering against him. I really do hope that Allen works out. He should get his money, but six picks is so much. Best of luck to whoever is about to bet their future on Josh Allen.
