Even when the Buffalo Bills drafted Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel with the No. 16 overall pick, it looked as though they'd reached.
But when only two more quarterbacks were picked before the start of Round 4, you really began to see how silly Buffalo looked for taking a quarterback with a lot of question marks that early.
The Bills had no way of knowing where other teams had Manuel on their draft boards, but it looks as though they could have landed him or someone in his range two or three rounds later. Considering how many holes this team already has, that's no good.
Then, in classic Bills fashion, they used two of their next three picks on wide receivers. Robert Woods was a nice value pick in Round 2, but Marquise Goodwin in Round 3 was overkill.
Tell me: What exactly is the difference between Goodwin and 2012 third-round pick T.J. Graham?
The only defensive player sprinkled in there for a team that surrendered more points than all but six other teams in 2012 was Kiko Alonso, who is versatile and extremely talented but had two alcohol-related arrests under his belt before his 21st birthday.
They followed all that up with two safeties and a kicker, ignoring their need to replace the two guards they lost in free agency.
