The Jets, drafting one spot after the Bills at No. 9, have shown considerable interest in Austin. New York's moribund offense could use a playmaker and Austin widely is seen as the most dynamic weapon in this year's draft. Buffalo would like nothing more than to make the Jets sweat for the player of their choice.
Maybe Buffalo has fallen in love, but either way, this is smart work by the Bills. In a first round draped in mystery, putting it out there that Buffalo is about to pull the trigger on Austin at No. 8 puts the rest of the NFL on blast.
If you want him, come and get him.
