This is a special time for NFL fans. The 2011 NFL Draft signifies the first real chance for every team, whether it’s the Carolina Panthers holding the first overall selection or the Green Bay Packers who pick 32nd because they’re the Super Bowl champs, to begin the process of improving while taking the proper steps to ensure that 2011 will bring something more, something better than 2010.
Where the Buffalo Bills are concerned, they’ve morphed into a draft wild card regardless of where they’re selecting particularly in the first round. In these days leading up to the draft, I can’t help but wonder and agonize how they’re going to screw it up again. I can’t help but cringe moments before NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is set to announce the Bills’ selection. I’m sorry, but I’m a pessimist.
Then again, can you blame me and fellow Bills fans alike who share the same sentiments?
I should warn you that the names I’m about to rattle off are not for the weak at heart and if there are small children in the room, I advise you to shield their eyes. So consider yourselves alerted, and now here’s the hitlist of Bills’ first round selections since the 2002 draft: Mike Williams, Willis McGahee, Lee Evans, J.P. Losman, Donte Whitner, John McCargo, Marshawn Lynch, Leodis McKelvin, Aaron Maybin, Eric Wood and C.J. Spiller.
