Buffalo Bills: Looking back at the 2010 NFL Draft class
Now a decade later, it is time to revisit the Buffalo Bills draft class from 2010.
The 2010 NFL Draft was held at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City, NY from April 22-24, 2010. Looking back, 2010 doesn’t seem like that long ago. But as we begin 2020 this draft was almost 10 years ago. So, it is time to look back at the 2010 Buffalo Bills’ draft class and how the careers of these players ended up.
Round 1, Pick 9: RB, C.J. Spiller, Clemson
C.J. Spiller’s best year was in 2012 when he rushed for 1,244 yards and six touchdowns and was named to the Pro Bowl as an alternate. Spiller was with the Bills from 2010 until 2014 until he signed with the New Orleans Saints in March of 2015.
In New Orleans he caught an 80-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees in overtime to help beat the Cowboys in Week 4. However, his time was short with the Saints as Spiller was released on September 13, 2016. He was then signed 15 days later by the Seattle Seahawks but was cut less than a month later.
Spiller also spent time with the New York Jets in the 2016 season but ended up finishing his career in Kansas City only playing one game in 2017.
