The Buffalo Bills will regret drafting Justin Shorter

First of all, drafting a wide receiver who has a huge red flag like "too many drops" thrown into many of his scouting reports is not entirely inspiring to fans. Justin Shorter, by all accounts, isn't someone who can come in and make a big impact on offense.

Secondly, some of the other players on the board at the time would have helped the Bills much more than Shorter. Think of someone like Illinois running back Chase Brown. He could have been the guy Buffalo went for instead of Latavius Murray being signed right after the draft.

Or, Buffalo could have gone and gotten their center of the future in Michigan's Olusegun Oluwatimi. Shorter was a waste of a pick.

The Buffalo Bills will regret drafting Nick Broeker

The Bills already had depth at guard after drafting Torrence and allowing he and Ryan Bates to battle it out, and Nick Broeker might not be more than a camp body at the end of the day. But, there was one player in particular, who would have been a much, much better pick here.

Georgia running back Kenny McIntosh was still available, and like the aforementioned Brown, McIntosh could have been a younger, fresher option to bolster the running back depth. Not to mention, Damien Harris is injury-prone and McIntosh has a similar style, being a between-the-tackles type who can get you short yardage when needed.
