When the Buffalo Bills shipped out running back Marshawn Lynch in 2010 for a fourth-round pick and a conditional sixth-round pick, few thought he would have the type of impact that he did in Seattle.
Because of his performance in 2011, that conditional draft pick will improve. The official website of the Buffalo Bills reports that the sixth-round pick from the Seahawks will now become a fifth-round pick. Lynch had 1,204 rushing yards, 12 touchdowns on 285 carries last season in Seattle.
Because compensatory picks have yet to be awarded to teams, the actual number of the draft pick has yet to be determined. The Bills have nine picks total in this point in time for the 2012 NFL Draft.
