Quote:
South Carolina CB Stephen Gilmore will help the secondary immediately, and 2nd round OL Cordy Glenn was a steal. NC State WR TJ Graham has speed to burn and could help take pressure off Steve Johnson. The 5th round provided the Bills with excellent value and potential: TCU LB Tank Carder and Florida State OT Zebrie Sanders.


The Bills were one of eight teams to get an A (Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Green Bay, Philadelphia, St. Louis). Denver and Seattle received the lowest grade (D+). Division rivals Miami, New England and New York all received B's.

Seems little generous, I give us a B. I don't see Glenn as our starting LT, rather our starting RG, Hughes was a reach, great character and work ethic. Gilmore I've warmed up too, but Floyd is gonna be a stud in Arizona.

I would definitely give our draft an A. I think we had by far the best day 3 of any team, and really the only pick anyone questions on days 1 and 2 is Graham. I'd say we were one of very few teams who got tremendous overall value with our picks. We potentially got guys in the first 5 rounds who could all become starters at some point this year. I don't know of any other team that could say that (though, admittedly, I haven't looked all that closely at every team's overall draft).

Can't argue with the bolded at all, and I still wish he would have been the pick, but I can understand taking Gilmore.

Yeah but if camp was any indication of gilmore's potential I think he'll be far greater than floyd. Graham sounded great so I think the road we took in the draft was phenomenal.
