I would first like to wish everyone of our readers and their families a very Happy Easter. If you don’t celebrate Easter, then a very Happy Sunday to you and know that we are one less day away from the start of football.
We are 18 days away from the much expected and very anticipated NFL Draft. We are 105 days away from the Hall of Fame Game on Aug 3rd, 2014, the Buffalo Bills first preseason game of the year.
This date in Bills history brought two very different players to the team. On April 20th, 1996 the Buffalo Bills drafted WR Eric Moulds from Mississippi State in the first round at the 24th pick. Can you guys remember the last time Buffalo draft so late and it wasn’t because of a trade?
Eric Moulds played for 10 seasons with the Bills, a year with the Houston Texans and a final year, 2007, with the Tennessee Titans. Moulds was elected to the Pro Bowl three times and lead the AFC in receiving yards in 1998. He was also selected to the Buffalo Bills 50th Anniversary Team. Moulds finished his career having 764 receptions with 9,995 yards and 49 receptions.
The next player that the Bills brought to the team was also drafted on this day. Tackle Mike Williams was drafted by the Bills in the first round at the 4th spot in the 2002 draft.
Williams played for the Bills from 2002-2005. He played for the Jaguars in 2006, took 2 years off from football, and then played for the Redskins from 2009-2010. Williams was seen as a draft bust when he was replaced by undrafted offensive lineman Jason Peters for the left tackle position. The sporting news has named Mike Williams as the biggest draft bust at the No 4 spot in the draft from 1989 to 2008. Williams subsequently only played as a starter for 4 years in the NFL.
I hope everyone has a Happy Easter and a Happy Sunday Funday!
