In 2017 the Buffalo Bills made playoffs for the first time in 17 years. As they head towards the 2018 draft, they are looking to add the right pieces to get back to the playoffs once again this upcoming season.

The Bills have plenty of needs heading into the 2018 draft; whether it be quarterback, slot corner, center or a handful of other positions. It helps that the Bills will have back-to-back backs in the first round of the draft. Although some fans might have wished for those picks not to be in the early 20’s and maybe a bit higher on the board, two first-round picks are nice regardless.

What the Bills decide to do with those first-round picks will without questions shape the 2018 season and possibly the franchise moving forward.

In the past, Buffalo has made some questionable calls when with their first-round drafts picks. Some of those calls seemed doomed from the start while others brought with them a glimmer of hope before eventually crashing and burning to the ground. Here is a look at the five biggest first-round busts in recent Bills’ history. Be sure to comment below and let us know which player was the biggest bust and whether or not you think we missed anyone from the last 15 years.
