Was it a good decision for the Bills to draft Spiller ninth overall? Absolutely not.
Can it still work out in their favor? Yes.
The Bills have significant needs at nearly every position, for them to draft a running back at ninth overall is bordering on insanity.
Not only would they have been better served drafting from another position, but if there wasn't anyone else available for them, they should have found a trade partner.
For the Bills, if there is a running back that can be succesful with a decidedly average offensive line and a non-existant passing game, Spiller could be their man.
Spiller has the ability to run off-tackle, catch out of the backfield and factor into the return game. In every situation, he has the ability to get into the endzone.
2010 might not be the season for Spiller, but if the Bills can draft offensive linemen in 2011, C.J. could be a difference maker for years to come.
