I think it's Maybin and it's not even close. Flowers actually had three or four sacks in his two years with the Bills. Maybin barely saw the field and was the No. 11 pick in the draft.

Maybin, by far. Flowers didn't pan out, but he still at least produced a little.

Maybin for sure.  Flowers was horrible but Maybin was picked earlier and never recorded a sack.

Maybin.

Horrible picks based solely on combine stats like Flowers, Mamula, etc were common 10+ years ago. Learning from those past debacles should've prevented any team from making that mistake with Maybin.

It's not hard to say at all and it's not even remotely close.

Maybin is the worst Bills draft pick ever, hands down.

Maybin by far. Flowers was a late 1st rounder in a draft that didn't have a lot of Pro Bowl caliber DE's, and the Bills desperately needed a DE to offset the loss of Bruce Smith. It just didn't work out.

When we took Maybin, we passed on Orakpo and Clay Matthews.

Wow. Just wow..

Our new Defensive Coordinator was able to get a decent amount of production from Maybin. I can't wait to see what he can do with this defense.

Maybinot was also a loud mouth.  At least Flowers kept his mouth shut as far as I can remember.

I'll say Maybin simply because Flowers never (to my knowledge) made a rap song about how awesome he was.

Maybin has to be the worst pick ever.

Maybin was the bigger bust, because he was picked much earlier.

Maybin may have produced better stats if he was allowed to float around the NFL for 5 years like Flowers.

Flowers stats after 5 years in the NFL was 37 tackles, 5 sacks, and one interception.

Maybin hands down.  The guy was just so overmatched from a physical point of view.  He got tossed around like rag doll.

Maybin, easy. what makes it worse is the fact that there ended up being three pro bowl LB's in that draft(Orakpo, Clay Mathews, Cushing), we had first crack at all of them and took the one bust. I remember Flowers beat I think it was Willie Roaf for a sack in his first game and i thought the guy would be amazing lol. that would end up being the highlight of his career probably.

both horrible picks and was pissed that we picked em. I think Maybin was worse cuz he didn't get any sacks and at least flowers looked the part.

Mamula numbers would have made him great here, compared to those two.

I second that

Maybin was worse, at least Williams started (another guy I didn't want, he was huge which was great but he was a big softy with no nasty in him, guy just wasn't mean enough)
