    Im sure they are interested in Barron.

    They play against Gronk and Hernandez twice a year.

    I'm sorry but I call BS on the bills. I want Mark Barron bad but I hope the cowboys call them on it and if he's still there at 11 move up and snag him.

    They aren't going to take him that high. A lot of those teams are trying to scare other teams into trading up, and a lot of people on this forum have swallowed the bait, hook, line and sinker. I'm just hoping the staff doesn't do the same.

    Strong Safeties just don't go that high unless they have supreme athletic gifts.

    This is like with Patrick Peterson, some were saying he'd be the 2nd player off the board but that was completely contradictory to years of drafting precedence. He went high, but not where some thought he'd go and that was with a guy with Calvin Johnson-esque physical gifts.

    Pass rushers rise, Tackles rise, QB's rise, CB's rise. Strong Safeties? Not so much. Barron has gone from a mid to late first to a Top 10 selection in a week? I'm gonna have to play the skeptic on that one.

    I think it is smoke aswell but I don't really know why they would do that.

    Because they have a lot of holes and want to trade out for more picks.

    Yes but why Mark Barron as the player they are using to get that haul? We are the team they are obviously trying to antagonize to make a move but we are at #14 if we jumped to #10 they would gain a 3rd round pick. Now if they are trying to have us go infront of them maybe they have some elaborate scheme where we move to #8, Tannehill falls to #10 and then they can get a nice haul for the right to pick Tannehill but even then that seems like a lot of pieces have to fall into the right place for them.

    I hate this statement that sounds like' "you don't draft so and so position that high.". If a team has a player ranked high on their board and feels he fits well in their system they draft where neccesary. There are no rules.

    I agree. With one caveat: the fact that Barron really is the only starter-ready safety in this class, and the fact that Dallas has a clear need for him at a position where he's good value at 14 makes it obvious to anyone else who wants a safety that they need to jump over us if they want to get him. The Bills have bigger needs, but I wouldn't be shocked to see a team leap us with a mid-round pick to get ahead of 14 to take our guy.
