Best value picks in Bills history?


Recommended Posts

With Gabe Davis looking like a solid #2 WR and taken at #128, it got me thinking about best value picks in Bills history. 

 

Andre Reed in the 4th has to be #1 but their are some other interesting names.

 

A quick scan of Bills draft history I found several good to great late round picks:

Matt Milano 5th

Stevie Johnson 7th round

Jay Riemersma 7th

Mark Maddox 9th 

Charles Rome 12th 

Marcus Patton 8th

Carlton Bailey 9th

Howard Ballard 11th 

Mark Pike 7th

 

Who am I missing?

Trade....error. Brain fart. As others pointed out below he was a waiver wire pickup

Could have been an all time great but as you pointed out he was UFA.

No one is going to refer to Davis as just "solid" anymore once this season begins.  He might even lead the Bills in receiving this year

FTFY.  C'mon man.  

 

Looking through the drafts since 1986 (drafts from 1995-2016 are *****in' soul crushing):

 

Jeff Wright - 8

Mike Lodish - 10

Matt Darby - 5

Kurt "I see nothing!" Schulz - 7

John Holecek - 5

Darick Holmes - 7

Sammy Morris "Jr." - 5

Justin Bannan - 5

Keith Ellison - 6

Arthur "Don't Cross the" Moats - 6 (aka the man who ended Brett Favre's NFL career)

Siran "Wrap" Neal - 5

Wyatt Teller - 5 (unfortunately not for us)

Tyler Bass "O'Matic" - 6

 

Best UDFA of all time, Fred"Ex" Jackson.

I think it’s Romes

 

I’d add Terrence McGee

Robb Riddick 9th

Roland Hooks 10th

Bob Chandler 7th

Daryle Lamonica 24th !!!

 

On trade charts of the day a 24th round pick was probably worth somewhere around a Mallo Cup nickel, a page of S&H green stamps, or a Canadian Tire dollar.

I have a hard time reading. LOL

 

I'd also throw Thurman in there.
