After trading for wide receiver, here's a look at Buffalo's remaining picks in the 2018 National Football League draft.

The Buffalo Bills acquired wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin in a trade with the Carolina Panthers in exchange for a 2018 third and seventh round pick. Conditions were never officially revealed so it's unknown if the Bills will have their seventh round pick in the draft.

It was a last-second deal that was made just prior to 4 p.m. EST deadline on Tuesday afternoon that only brings light to how much the organization valued Benjamin in terms of his place in their future plans.

Consider Cam Newton among those confused by the Kelvin Benjamin trade. He had a spectacular rookie season in which he surpassed the 1,000-yard mark, and averaged over 13 yards a reception. Both previously worked for the Panthers before being hired by Buffalo this year.

One of the biggest reasons to cough up $99 each year for Amazon's Prime service is its flexibility in terms of delivery methods. It points out that Amazon Key could also be useful when it comes to letting in dog walkers, pet sitters and house cleaners.

After the team managed a 17-3 win over the Tampa Bay Bucs to snap a two-game losing streak, Newton had this to say about Benjamin, the franchise's first-round pick in 2014 who caught a touchdown in the fourth quarter of that victory. Benjamin alone has 32 receptions and 475 receiving yards.

The Bills will have a decision to make on Benjamin's contract for next season as he is owed a guaranteed $8.45-million but can be cut with no dead money. Not only is he a tight end, but he's also going to be out at least another week with a knee injury.

At Florida State, Benjamin posted 84 catches, 1,506 yards and 19 touchdowns in two seasons.
