The 2016 NFL draft is 63 days away. Who have the Buffalo Bills drafted at pick 63?
Buffalo has selected two players at pick 63. Here’s a look at the two former Bills.
Hal Garner, LB, Utah State (1985)
Hal Garner will forever be wedged between two famous Bills players. In 1985, Buffalo selected Frank Reich one round before Garner and Andre Reed one round after the linebacker.
Garner played five seasons with the Bills (1985-86, 1988, 1990-91). In his five seasons, Garner played in 67 games but only started for Buffalo twice at linebacker. He recorded 1.5 sacks in his NFL career with the Bills. Garner was a regular contributor on special teams.
Garner’s tale is rather unfortunate. He became hooked on painkillers to the point where his wife left him. An article from 2007 said his children stopped talking to him. The former linebacker was placed in jail for a felony DUI. Despite it all, Garner was asked about his career. His response:
"Was it worth it? No," Garner said. "Would I do it again? In a heartbeat."
Richard Trapp, WR, Miami (1968)
Trapp played one season for the Bills in 1968. In that season, Trapp caught 24 passes for 235 yards. He moved on to the San Diego Chargers in 1969. In his second, and last, season in the league, Trapp caught two passes for 39 yards.
Trapp practiced law in Orlando, Florida starting in 1974. He was disbarred in 2013.
