On my way home Monday night from college WGR 550 had a special show called Overtime from 7-9p.m. for the upcoming National Football League Draft and proposed the question what if the Buffalo Bills took a running back at ninth overall?
Unless C.J. Spiller is the next Barry Sanders, taking a running back at ninth overall would go down as one of the worst picks in the history of the Bills draft next to wide Receiver Roscoe Parrish.
In the 2005 Draft the Bills took Parrish in the second round. That Draft the Bills had no first rounder as they traded it away to take quarterback JP Losman the year before.
With the Bills needing an offensive tackle then general manager Tom Donahoe took Parrish and has now gone down as the worst Bills gm ever.
First, general manager Buddy Nix would contradict himself as in his introductory press conference that big men are the building blocks of an organization.
Secondly, the Bills signed running back Walter Mendenhall who is a powerback and have Fred Jackson who is their all around playmaker, so they don’t need Spiller as he isn’t a compliment.
Also, running back Marshawn Lynch is still with the team, so until he is gone a running back is out of the realm of possibility
In the end, the Bills have too many important needs that have to be filled and if they don’t address them then they should be fired.
Good night and good luck.
