5. Booker Moore - Running back - 1981

Booker Moore was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the 1981 NFL Draft and played only four seasons in the league from 1982 - 1985, all with the Bills. During his short-lived career, he carried the ball only 115 times and was used more as a fullback. He also totaled 75 career receptions and had two total touchdowns, one rushing and one receiving. Throughout his career, he ran for 420 yards and had 423 yards receiving. He started 32 games of the 51 career games he played in.

In those times, the 28th pick was the last pick of the first round. But other players selected shortly after Moore that the Bills could have landed were everyone's favorite announcer Cris Collinsworth, Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Singletary, and defensive back Eric Wright. Say what you want about Collinsworth as an announcer, but he played eight years in the league, was a three-time second-team All-Pro, three-time Pro Bowler, and runner-up offensive rookie of the year. These three players combined to play in seven Super Bowls, winning five of them.
