If that's the case and Manuel was picked before #41, then maybe Nassib or Smith are still there at #41. If not Buffalo still had holes to fill elsewhere that would've been more quickly filled with the 16th pick, and then 41st if necessary.
If Manuel develops and becomes another Roethlisberger while Nassib/Smith become fringe starters are you going to care about the draft day value?
At the end if the day they got their guy and it looks like we could get great value twice in the second. Lets give the kid a few years before we crucify everyone. I will say that I think we have the right coach to help him grow.
Yeah the Bills are sooo good at drafting, like when they picked the steal of the draft Torrell Troup exactly one pick ahead of some bust named Rob Gronkowski.
Or when they drafted all-pro Aaron Williams exactly ahead of busts Andy Dalton and Colin Kaepernick.
The Bills haven't made the playoffs since 1999.They are the worst drafting team in the whole league, aside from the Raiders.
Well in their defense they aren't exactly ever in a great position to succeed (selecting 7-11). I mean the Panthers are awful at drafting too.... they get lucky and get Newton. That is what one player can do for you.
