Maybin or Tom Cousineau


Tom Cousineau brought us Jim Kelly.

Aaron Maybin.......mic drop

Maybin

The Maybin pick is worse than any other. It was on another level for so many reasons!

There have been at least 6 (debatably more) first round picks since the start of the drought that were worse than CJ Spiller:

  • Mike Williams
  • McGahee
  • Losman
  • McCargo
  • Maybin 
  • Manuel

Agree with this list. I don't know if I would call McGahee a flat out bust, but he certainly was a huge headscratcher at the time considering Travis Henry was just coming off of a 1400 yard season and was pretty much in his prime...and Willis was recovering from one of the most devastating knee injuries I'd ever seen in college football.

I feel like the Bills are on some occasions trying to outsmart the league. It hasn't worked.. yet.

Maybin. He had two years of eligibility left and should have stayed in school longer.

 

If we're talking the first rounds overall, then the Whitner/McCargo draft was the worst ever. Taking Whitner over Ngata was compounded by taking McCargo later in round 1. Whitner had been projected to go around 24 on some earlier mocks that year, which is where McCargo was taken. A Ngata/Whitner draft would have been pretty good.

Has to be MikeWilliams or Maybin.  Both guys needed to be good players for those teams and were huge disappointments.

 

EJ and Losman hurt too.

All you guys posting Mike Williams.  I was in the Kelly suite that day for a draft party.  We get MW and minutes later trade for Bledsoe.  EVERYONE there thought Super Bowl, the excitement at the time.  Later to find out one of the darker days of course

I understand where you're coming from with the 'we already had Jackson and Lynch' take but Spiller was a dynamic player coming out of college and he produced for us. To suggest that a guy who once ran for over 1,200 yards while averaging 6 yards a carry is the worst first round pick in the 57 year history of a franchise is beyond preposterous. And another thing, new rule, young fans (I am 38 and only claim to go back to the '85 season) cannot throw around claims like "worst or best in Bills history" when they only go back to like Drew Bledsoe as the Bills QB.

The scary thing?  Spiller may be closer to one of the best picks the Bills ever made in the first than one of the worst.  :sick:

Eric Moulds was a bust. I wish I had a dollar every time I heard that in his 1st couple years. :doh:

 

More seriously - Aaron 'who the he!! did we just pick" Maybin.

And living in Oregon I had issues with Whitner over Ngata. Still do.

It has to be Cousineau but Maybin in the modern day. Maybin was drafted to rush the passer and has as many sacks in his Bills career as me.

How about Walt Patulski.  He has to rank up there with all those mentioned.

In recent years, there have been so many prospects that turn out bad, you have to stop blaming the players and start looking at the organization and if they really know how to win in the league.

Let's start by looking at the past 16 years of trying to win without a QB.

Wow the list is way too long. But the worst are Tom Rudd, Phil Dokes, Booker Moore, Perry Tuttle, Tony Hunter, Erik Flowers and Aaron Maybin. Unfortunately there are quite a few more who weren't very good either.

Yeah, but we both have more rushing yards in our respective Bills careers than Reggie Bush

Ha ha

I think that McCargo was just awful as well. He was the 3rd DL selected in the first on his own line, in a trade up. He and Troupe (who happened to be in the second) were just brutal picks at the same position.
