Add Dane Brugler of CBSSports.com to the draft analysts who loved the Buffalo Bills draft class. Brugler published an article on five teams that flat-out crushed the 2016 NFL draft and the Bills were included. Here's what Brugler said about Buffalo's draft class:
Rex Ryan's defense in Buffalo was largely a disappointment in his first season as the Bills' head coach. So the organization went defense early and often in the 2016 NFL Draft, starting with Lawson in the first round as a reliable pass rush threat. Ragland might only be a two-down player, but he gives Ryan his version of David Harris in Buffalo. Two Buckeyes came off the board next for the Bills, including Jones, who is worth a fourth-round pick to see if he can develop into a quarterback who can push for starting reps. Williams is a top-three back in this class if healthy and Listenbee adds more speed to the Bills already fast wide receiver group.
Only time will tell if the Bills truly "flat-out crushed" the 2016 NFL draft, but they were certainly receiving plenty of positive recognition over their draft class. If Buffalo's first three picks all contribute as rookies, Brugler may be correct in his assessment.null
