Bills signed No. 16 overall pick LB Tremaine Edmunds to a four-year contract.

Bills traded the No. 22, No. 65 and No. 154 overall picks to move up six spots and take Edmunds on Day 1 of the draft. There was an initial debate over where he would play, but the Bills will reportedly leave him inside. With Lorenzo Alexander playing the strong side, Edmunds will take over for Preston Brown and be a Week 1 starter and signal-caller. Trent Murphy and Matt Milano are expected to compete for the starting weakside spot.

The Bills plan to keep rookie Tremaine Edmunds at middle linebacker.

There was debate over where Edmunds would play, but the Bills are leaving him inside. After moving on from Preston Brown, Edmunds is going to be a Week 1 starter and signal-caller for Buffalo's defense. With Lorenzo Alexander locked in on the strong side, Trent Murphy and Matt Milano should compete for the starting weakside spot.

Bills signed sixth-round WR Ray-Ray McCloud, seventh-round WR Austin Proehl, fifth-round DB Siran Neal and fifth-round OG Wyatt Teller to four-year contracts.

McCloud and Proehl are both undersized. McCloud is more of a playmaker and has a better chance of making the 53-man roster this summer.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane said he was 'working hard' on acquiring the No. 4 overall pick from the Browns in last week's draft.

"I probably talked to John Dorsey more than anybody through the process, but we could not come to an agreement on what was fair," Beane said. Beane also reportedly had a deal in place to trade the Nos. 12, 22, and a second-round pick to the Broncos in exchange for the No. 5 overall pick. That deal was nixed by Denver since Bradley Chubb was still available at No. 5. Despite entering last week's draft with six of the first 100 picks, the Bills will arguably take the field with one of the league's worst offenses in Week 1.

Bills hired Dan Morgan as Director of Player Personnel.

A first-round pick of the Panthers in 2001, the former linebacker spent seven years in the NFL, earning All-Pro status with Carolina in 2004. He transitioned into a scouting role shortly after retirement and eventually worked his way up to Director of Player Personnel for the Seahawks. In Buffalo, Morgan will be tasked with replacing Brian Gaine, who left to become the Texans' GM earlier this offseason.

Bills president and CEO Russ Brandon resigned on Tuesday.

Per the Buffalo News, Brandon's resignation came following "an internal investigation into Brandon’s workplace behavior and allegations of personal misconduct." Reportedly, it was triggered by allegations of inappropriate relationships with female employees. Brandon initially denied the relationships when confronted by Bills owner Kim Pegula, but he has since left his post. Brandon was with the team for nearly 21 years and ran the club during previous owner Ralph Wilson's final years before the Pegulas bought the team.

Bills GM Brandon Beane said he wants to see how Kelvin Benjamin fits in the new offense before discussing a contract extension.

Benjamin is entering the final year of his rookie deal. In addition to his fit, Beane likely wants to see how healthy and in shape Benjamin is before discussing a long-term deal. Benjamin caught 16 passes for 217 yards and a touchdown in six games with the Bills last year after coming over from Carolina via a trade, although he was never really healthy during that run.

Bills signed Clemson CB Ryan Carter.

Carter (5’9/184) made 29 starts in the Tigers’ secondary, logging 8.5 career tackles for loss with four interceptions and earning honorable mention All-ACC as a senior. In 2017, PFF College credited Carter with a stingy 42.1 passer rating when targeted. Not invited to the Combine, Carter tested as a meager eight-percentile SPARQ athlete with 4.52 speed. Ultimately, Carter was a good college player whose projection is limited to slot corner and special teams in the pros.
Apr 29 - 8:36 AM

Bills signed Alabama CB Levi Wallace.

Wallace (6’0/179) originally walked on at Alabama, paid his dues, and exploded as a senior to lead the SEC in pass breakups (18) with three interceptions. PFF College charged Wallace with an anemic 47.3 QB rating when targeted and zero TDs allowed. Wallace struggled with bigger, physical wideouts in the SEC and disappointed with a 4.63 forty in Indy, however, and his transition to covering NFL receivers is fair to doubt.
Apr 28 - 9:03 PM

Bills signed Alabama WR Robert Foster.

He reunites with OC Brian Daboll. Foster (6’2/196) dealt with injuries, ineffective quarterback play, and his own inconsistency for the Crimson Tide, managing a career 29/345/11.9/3 receiving line. Foster ran 4.41 at the Combine but struggled badly in the broad jump (9’8") and vertical (31"). A poor man’s Devery Henderson, Foster profiles as a special teams gunner and possible No. 4 receiver in a situational deep-threat role.
Apr 28 - 7:23 PM

Bills signed TCU DE Mat Boesen.

Boesen (6’3/240) bounced from Boise State to JUCO to TCU, where he started as a junior and senior and logged 23 tackles for loss with 17.5 sacks and five forced fumbles in two years. PFF College credited Boesen with a conference-high 51 QB pressures last season, and he earned first-team All-Big 12 from the conference’s coaches. An undersized overachiever, Boesen projects as a special teamer and possible situational pass rusher down the line.
Apr 28 - 7:07 PM

Bills selected North Carolina WR Austin Proehl with the No. 255 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Proehl (5'10/173) got an opportunity to start last season following the departures of Mack Hollins and Ryan Switzer but only played six games due to an arm injury. He didn't run the fastest forty time (only 4.56) but is a quick possession receiver with excellent hands. The largest obstacle for Proehl to overcome will be his size and winning one-on-one battles against bigger, more physical defensive backs. Proehl's father, Ricky, played wide receiver in the NFL from 1990-2006.
Apr 28 - 6:51 PM

Bills selected Clemson WR Ray-Ray McCloud with the No. 187 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Severely undersized (5'9/190) by NFL wideout standards, McCloud nevertheless made plays all over the field in 2017, flashing rushing and return ability to go along with his receiving. He was a three-year contributor for Dabo Swinney's ACC powerhouse. Tough, fast and strong for his size, McCloud will try to carve out a Tavon Austin-type role in Buffalo. His 2018 will likely begin on the practice squad.
Apr 28 - 4:05 PM

Bills selected Virginia Tech G Wyatt Teller with the No. 166 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Teller (6’5/314) made 43 starts on the Hokies’ line, manning left guard and allowing only five QB pressures (PFF) without a sack in 2017. Teller earned PFF College’s No. 9 run-blocking grade in the nation among guards, winning with a highly aggressive playing style. Teller showed up as a plus athlete in Indy with 75th-percentile SPARQ results and 30 reps on the bench. Long armed (34") with movement skills and a proven block winner, Teller offers legitimate starting potential.
Apr 28 - 3:09 PM

Bills selected Jacksonville State CB Siran Neal with the No. 154 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Neal is a bit overaged and will be 24 by Week 1. He is considered a corner or safety, and Buffalo has needs at both positions. He tested slightly above average during his athletic testing. Development is needed, but that is why Neal ended up in the fifth round. Experience at both defensive back spots helps.
