Jerome Felton: Almost a Bill

According to this article , we were 1 pick away from taking a FB in round 5, Furman's Jerome Felton.

 

Former Furman All-America fullback Jerome Felton was sitting at home with his family Sunday waiting patiently on his name to be called in the NFL Draft, when his phone rang after hours of silence. First, the Arizona Cardinals called and said they would take him with their next pick. Moments later the Buffalo Bills called and told him the same thing. However, as his phone rang a third time in a matter of minutes, his family saw that the Detroit Lions had taken him with their next selection, the 11th pick in the fifth round (146th overall).

 

The Lions picked 1 slot before us in the 5th.  I wonder how the rest of the draft would have broke had we ended up with him.  Interesting how close some of these picks are to causing ripple effects afterward...

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
