2010 NFL Draft
Definition of a good draft – Inside The Bills
"It’s just one man’s opinion, but ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay classifies a good draft as follows. 'Two starters from a draft is an average draft in the NFL. If you can get three starters from every draft that’s a good draft.' By that logic, the Bills had a heck of a haul with their 2009 class. Buffalo had four starters from the class and are likely to add a fifth starter from that group this year."

Why trading up to top 10 rare – Inside The Bills

Poz pursues second passion -
