Buffalo Bills 5th overall picks, 5 days from the 2016 NFL draft

Jerry Butler was Buffalo's last 5th overall pick.

The 2016 NFL draft is five days away. Who have the Buffalo Bills drafted at pick 5?

Buffalo has drafted four players at pick 5. Here’s a look at the former Bills draft picks.

Jerry Butler, WR, Clemson (1979)

Butler spent his entire professional career with the Bills and started in 80 of 88 games. In his first three seasons in Buffalo, Butler went over 800 yards receiving (834, 832, 842) and scored 18 touchdowns on 160 receptions during that time. He was named to the Pro Bowl after the 1980 season.

Butler’s best game came in his rookie season when he caught 10 passes for 255 yards and four touchdowns in his fourth career game in the NFL. For his career, Butler registered 278 receptions which went for 4,301 yards and 29 touchdowns.

Recently, Butler was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Today, he serves as the director of player development with the Chicago Bears.

Terry Miller, RB, Oklahoma State (1978)

Terry Miller’s career started off on a high note in Buffalo. As a rookie, Miller rushed for 1,060 yards and seven touchdowns on 238 carries. He also had 22 receptions for 246 yards receiving.

His second season saw his production drop. Miller had 139 carries for 484 yards and one touchdown. Curtis Brown led the team in rushing that season. In 1980, Miller’s last season in Buffalo, the back only carried the ball 12 times for 35 yards as Joe Cribbs was now Buffalo’s lead back. Miller saw more time as a kick returner that season and had 16 kick returns for 303 yards.

Miller finished his career with the Seattle Seahawks in 1981. He carried the ball two times for four yards.

Al Cowlings, DE, USC (1970)

Cowlings recorded 40 starts in 41 career games with Buffalo. He had four fumble recoveries during that time per Pro Football Reference. Cowlings also spent time with the Houston Oilers, Los Angeles Rams, Seattle Seahawks, and San Francisco 49ers in his career.

Nowadays, Cowlings is best known for being the driver in the low-speed O.J. Simpson chase. Cowlings had spent time with Simpson in high school, college, and the pros so the two were close.

In 2009, Cowlings was named to the USC Athletic Hall of Fame.

Carl Eller, DE, Minnesota (1964)

Eller was drafted by the Bills in the AFL and the Vikings in the NFL. Staying in Minnesota was probably an easy decision for Eller after playing his college career with the Golden Gophers. Eller played 15 seasons in Minnesota and one in Seattle.

Eller went on to have a tremendous career that saw him named to five First-Team All-Pro teams and six Pro Bowls. He would eventually be named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2004.
