1. Where does the charging Buffalo rank among the NFL's 32 team logos?

It's been a long-time since the Bills changed its logo. The charging buffalo has been a staple of Western New York and the franchise since its inception in April 5, 1974. Gone was the red standing buffalo that had been the team's mark since 1962. It was replaced by a blue charging buffalo with a red streak, the crowning achievement of artist Stevens Wright.

Over 40 years later, the NFL has seen numerous logo changes, including a leaked supposed re-design of the Los Angeles Rams logo this week sparking For The Win to rank all 32 current NFL logos from best to worst.

Third place was the Bills logo.

A charging buffalo silhouette with a blue and red color scheme is minimalist, yet really effective.

The only two higher were the Steelers and Raiders.

2. Bills trade up in latest CBS Sports mock

Do you like mock drafts with trades? Well CBS Sports has you covered with a flurry of moves being made in their latest mock. Eight trades are made in the first-round, including one from the Bills to lockdown their newest offensive weapon.

No longer selecting at No. 22, the Bills select Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy at 16.

The Bills follow the Eagles' lead and give up No. 86 to jump for one of the top receivers with the fear of missing out if they sit at No. 22.

In this mock the Bills select one of the top-three wide receiver prospects in the 2020 draft. 

The Bills trade up after the Eagles move to pick 14 and select Oklahoma wideout CeeDee Lamb by trading their first, third, and fifth round pick. The Broncos select Alabama's Henry Ruggs III at 15. The only other wide receiver selected in the top 22 of this mock is LSU product Justin Jefferson at 19 to Las Vegas.

3. Bleacher Report thinks the Bills will address this need in the draft

With plenty of cap room and draft capital the Bills have a plethora of options on how to address the future of the team. With this year's draft class so deep at wide receiver, Bleacher Report sees the Bills addressing their need in the draft and not free agency.

With Shaq Lawson about to hit free agency, … the defensive end position could be a massive area of need for the Buffalo Bills in 2020.

But with the third-most cap space in the NFL ($82.3 million) in the NFL, the Bills are in the enviable position of being able to dole out a huge contract to a player like Jadeveon Clowney or swing a trade for Yannick Ngakoue.

That would allow the team to focus its attention on the offensive side of the ball at No. 22 and add another passing-game weapon for Josh Allen.

The Bills added a vertical threat in John Brown and a capable slot target in Cole Beasley in 2019 free agency, and the rewards were substantial. But they lack a bigger-bodied receiver who can high-point the ball—a player Allen can lock onto in red-zone situations.

The 2020 draft class is deep at wide receiver, and youngsters like LSU's Justin Jefferson (6'1", 202 lbs) and Clemson's Tee Higgins (6'4", 216 lbs) would fit the bill nicely.
