2018 NFL Mock Draft: Buffalo Bills Select QB Sam Darnold at No. 12

No way this actually happens, right?

With the 12th pick of the 2018 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Buffalo Bills select...

Sam Darnold, QB, USC

The selection and write-up were made by GratefulDawg:

That was easy, and a dream scenario for the Bills. In the actually draft I anticipate that the Bills will move up into the top ten in order to draft their quarterback (possibly in a deal with the Browns at No. 4 if Chubb is unavailable). Chesty McCarron will hold down the fort until the rookie is ready, but Sam Darnold falling to No. 12 would be an unbelievable stroke of luck for the Bills, albeit completely unrealistic. In the actually draft, if the Bills were to stick at No. 12, I anticipate that if one of the top five quarterbacks is available (most likely Allen or Jackson in my opinion), they would go that route. If they don’t like the quarterback available at No. 12, or none are available, I think they would go Roquan Smith at No. 12 and then Mason Rudolph at No. 22.

Pokorny: “Buffalo would be flipping out in a good way if Darnold fell to them like this. They would turn the card in the first second they are on the clock, and this preseason, the Browns would get a taste of Lamar Jackson vs. Sam Darnold.”

The Washington Redskins are up next, led by Maul Poleski.
