The Buffalo Bills endured a miserable 17-year stretch of playoff-less football from 2000-2017. On the latest episode of the Billieve Podcast, host John Boccacino and co-host Jamie D’Amico take their turn at playing general manager, assembling two teams featuring the best Bills players from the playoff drought era.

This 24-man snake draft features two complete starting units. On offense: 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, and one LT, LG, C, RG, RT. Our base 4-3 defenses feature: 2 interior DTs, 2 DEs, 3 LBs, 2 CBs, and 2 safeties. We also draft a kicker, a punter, a kickoff returner and a punt returner.

The rules? Players had to suit up for the Bills between 2000-2017 (players who logged time during the 90s were considered so long as they weren’t thought of as a major contributor to the Super Bowl-era Bills);

Players were also drafted based on contributions at their primary position; one-year wonders were considered; and we did not include current Bills who were on the 2017 team that snapped the drought.

Check out the latest Billieve Podcast to hear how our snake draft went, then join the conversation on which of our drought teams would win a mythical match-up. Let us know which picks you agree with, and which left you scratching your head by leaving your thoughts in the comments section below.
