First Overall Picks

So I was thinking today, what will happen if the Bills get the first overall pick? 

Then that got my thinking, who/when have we had the first overall pick before?

I did some research and found this:

 1961: Ken Rice 

1969: OJ Simpson - 11,362 yards, 4.7 ypc, 61 Rushing TDs

1972: Walt Patulski - 16.5 sacks * Rated 27th Biggest Draft Bust of All-Time by ESPN

1979: Tom Cousineau - Never Played for the Bills *Traded for 1983 First Round Pick from Cleveland

1985: Bruce Smith - 200 Sacks, 1,225 tackles, Hall of Fame

 

So I guess we've had mixed results when we've had the first overall pick. 

Hopefully if or when we have the first pick we make the correct decision.

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