The Buffalo Bills received a 'C' draft grade from CBS Sports

Not everyone loved Buffalo's draft class.

By many accounts, the Buffalo Bills had a strong 2016 NFL draft class. 

Pro Football Focus gave the Bills an A- grade for their entire draft class and quite a few draft analysts seemed to like many of Buffalo's draft selections.

Although many liked Buffalo's draft, Pete Prisco of CBS Sports felt that Buffalo's draft was average at best. For that reason, Prisco gave the Bills a 'C' grade. Here's what Prisco thought of the draft class:

Best pick: Fifth-round running back Jonathan Williams from Arkansas has second-round talent. But he missed last season with a foot injury. He has skills.

Questionable move: I know they needed pass-rush help, but I am not a big fan of first-round pick Shaq Lawson. There is a tendency to over-draft pass rushers, and this could be a case of that.

Third-day gem: Fifth-round receiver Kolby Listenbee is a burner who can amp up the passing game. He was a 100-meter runner at TCU, which tells you he can fly. He's raw, but they have to love that ability to get down the field.

Analysis: If you love Lawson and second-round linebacker Reggie Ragland, this is a good draft. If you don't, and I don't, it's just OK. That's why I rate this as an average draft.

Grade: C

Prisco is entitled to give out whatever grade he'd like but the C grade is rather odd. The writer gave the Lawson move a B- and the Ragland addition a B. Considering these were two moves that Prisco critiques, it's odd that they'd bring the average down to a C. That said, time will tell whether or not the Bills drafted very well or average at best.
