The Buffalo Bills are loaded with talent on both sides of the ball. This stat, though, about their offense is really surprising.

Earlier this week we saw the difference in thinking between our old GM and our new one.  While the Bills old GM, Doug Whaley said that he thought the Bills should trade our main wide receiver because he didn't think we'd be able to afford him, Beane found a way to extend him for 6 years.

He's been able to keep players that in the past we would have let go and made Buffalo a destination where players want to play.

The NFL Draft is coming up in just a couple of days and people are wondering who they're going to pick.  The big question is who they're going to pick in the first round.  Will they trade up?  Will they stay at 25?

If the stat that I saw tonight means anything, then it won't matter at all.  Look how many players that are currently starting on the Bills offense were picked in the first round of the draft...


Josh Allen is the only starter on the Bills offense who was picked in the first round.  And there's no question that the Bills were feared around the league not only for their #1 defense, but for their high-powered offense too.

You just never know what you're going to get when you pick in the draft.  They could turn out to be incredible franchise players...or they could be busts.  But the important part is not to sleep on the later round players.  Look how many of them turned out to be our biggest stars.
