Flux Capacitor set to: Bills Draft History

With the most recent news centered around Mr. Owens' signing with Buffalo and all of our brains on fire thinking about the season to come, I thought it'd be great to take a look back at the team's draft history. (Thanks to NFL.com.)

 


With the draft some 40-odd days away, it's a great way to gear up for what we all love: the hope that these soon-to-be Bills players will produce what the past didn't quite finish: (insert wishes here).

There's a smorgasbord of entertainment on the list - which i'll leave to you all to sort thru, but a couple of  quick tidbits I noticed:

  • What a steal it was to find House Ballard in the 11th round. Jason Peters appear ready to take over this distinction, though he wasn't even drafted.
  • A quick scan revealed that (while widely known by many here) they drafted 2 future coaches: Mr. "Marty Ball" Schottenheimer and Jim Haslett - both at LB.

If you look at the more recent drafts, there's a good track record of finding players that stick and fill out the roster - that's the important part, and we've discussed it before. However, the jury's still out whether that's a result of the talent level/competition  not being high enough, or if they're truly adept at finding late-round gems, able to challenge the early-round players.

Take a look around at the list. Let's discuss some of the team's fonder (or, if you prefer, gut-wrenching) decisions.

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