Wednesday, BuffaloBills.com reported that the NFL confirmed the Bills will receive a fifth-round pick in the upcoming draft for trading Marshawn Lynch to the Seahawks prior to the 2010 season.
Lynch was dealt for a fourth-rounder in 2011 and a sixth-rounder in 2012, with the latter having the chance to improve to a fifth-rounder if Lynch got a certain amount of playing time. Lynch apparently reached the mark.
Buffalo will also get an additional fourth-rounder in dealing Lee Evans to the Ravens prior to last season.
The Bills currently have nine picks in the 2012 draft and could be awarded a compensatory pick, as well.
