The Buffalo Bills are looking at the offseason and the 2015 draft that will coming up with a lot of questions that still need to be answered.  They currently don’t have a coach, a quarterback as well as a 1st round draft pick either.

The Buffalo Bills traded thier first round draft pick to the Cleveland Browns to move up and take the ever anticipated Sammy Watkins at the 4th overall pick.

Was Sammy Watkins worth that 4th round pick? Too early to tell at this point, but he did have the best year a rookie has ever had for the Buffalo Bills so there may be some merit to stand on.

With the Bills sitting at the 19th overall spot in the draft, and no draft pick, lets take a look and see just whole teams have been getting at the 19th overall spot in the past 20 years and just see how much they lost.

Here is a list of the last 20 picks that were at the 19th overall pick.

As you can see there are some decent names on the list that came out of the first round right in the middle, then there are also a couple that are as great.

Marvin Harrison and Tarik Glenn were back to back years for the Indianpolis Colts.  Jeremy Maclin and Antonio Cromartie were also more recent 19th overall picks.  The past two years there have been two offensive lineman that have gone 19th.  Ja’Wuan James started all 16 games for the Dolphins and had minimal numbers to really look at.  Justin Pugh, the other OL, has started all 30 games that he has played in for the Giants.  Both of these players look to be solid offensive lineman.

The Buffalo Bills are in a desperate need of an overhaul of thier offensive line and the interior guards are the first place that needs the reworking.

Could they have waited on Sammy Watkins, got someone like Odell Beckham Jr, or a Mike Williams, or Kelvin Benjamin and been in the same situation with a 1st round pick to address their woeful offensive line, absolutely.  But they didn’t and they have to sleep in the bed that they make.
