Grading the Buffalo Bills 2015 Draft

By Steve

Was that the most boring NFL draft in recent memory? Yeah, I watched just about the entire thing but man that was boring. Obviously, the horrendous trades from last year that threw out a few 4th round picks and this years first round picked were the man culprit.

But it wasn't just those lousy trades that caused this years draft to be a snoozefest. The first pick was a cornerback which seems to always be the case and is usually boring. The second pick, John Miller, was a boring but useful pick because he plays guard.

The most interesting aspects of the 2015 draft  were the team's 5th and and second 6th round pick. Running back Karlos Williams was impressive at times for FSU but it wasn't a need position. Basically it was a send off to trade-bust Bryce Brown. Good job on that one Doug Whaley.

The second 6th round pick ( TE Nick O'leary) was my favorite of the whole draft. Oddly enough this kid might have the biggest impact on the roster this season. Granted he was a late sixth round pick but any time an FSU game was on it seemed like this dude was making plays. Why he fell that far is probably because of his measurables but the kid is a football player.

Lastly the other dudes Tony Steward and Dezmin Lewis.. meh. Lewis is a tall WR and hopefully Rex liked LB Steward but they were just throw in players in the 6th and 7th rounds.

Overall I give the Bills a draft grade of C+. No additional picks for next year, not drafting a quarterback and taking a luxury CB hurt. Plus Darby had about as many interceptions as I had last year but in the long run it may prove to be a smart pick.
