Draft pick for Lynch jumps to fifth-rounder

The Bills will receive the Seattle Seahawks' fifth-round draft pick in April's draft as part of their compensation for the trade of running back Marshawn Lynch, according to a report on the team's official website,

The original trade of Lynch called for Buffalo to receive a fourth-round pick in 2011 (which it used on offensive tackle Chris Hairston) and a conditional sixth-round pick that could be improved based on Lynch's playing time. That pick will jump up to the fifth round, according to the report, after Lynch rushed 285 times for 1,204 yards and 12 TDs in 2011 for Seattle.

The Bills now have nine picks in April's draft, seven of their own along with the fourth-round pick of Baltimore they received in exchange for Lee Evans.
