Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Running back C.J. Spiller: The Bills were set at running back with veterans Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch but Spiller gives them a change-of-pace threat on par with Reggie Bush. A luxury pick for a team that needed so many things? Perhaps, but the Bills also needed a reason for fans to get excited after passing on a blue-chip quarterback.
A closer look at the Bills picks: Round 1/9 -- C.J. Spiller, RB, 5-10, 196, Clemson, With 7,588 career all-purpose yards, Spiller was one of the most electrifying and productive players in NCAA history. Of his 51 career touchdowns, 21 were 50 yards or longer. Has world-class speed but it's all packaged in a true football player. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout C.J. Spiller News
11/03/14 - RB C.J. Spiller isn't willing to weigh his chances of being able to play in the final two regular-season games against Oakland and New England. He was placed on the injured reserve/designated to return list after breaking his collarbone two weeks ago against the Minnesota Vikings. He is eligible to play in Week 16, but it does seem like a long shot.
"My biggest thing is just getting back healthy and trying to get back to playing," he said. "I'm not going to put a percentage on it, I'm just taking it one day at a time. If the doctors clear me, I want to play."
Spiller said he spent the bye week in Florida, but he kept up with his cardio conditioning.
"I've been doing stuff," he said. "I didn't just sit on the potato couch. On the bye week I was working out doing cardio stuff. My friends and family are pushing me, so that's always encouraging. Every day I'm getting a text from somebody making sure I'm doing what I need to do."
10/22/14 - RB C.J. Spiller has been placed on the injured reserve/designated to return list after undergoing surgery to repair his broken collarbone. The earliest he could return is Week 16, but it seems like a longshot that it could happen.
10/20/14 - RB C.J. Spiller had only one carry, and it went for 53 yards. Unfortunately, it could be his last carry as a Bill. The impending free agent broke his collarbone and is likely out for the rest of the season.
10/19/14 - RB C.J. Spiller, who also was taken to the locker room on a cart, could miss the rest of the season with a broken collarbone. He was in tears when he left the field.
Spiller is in the final year of his rookie contract, meaning his last play with the team might have been Sunday's 53-yard burst that ended in injury.
10/15/14 - RB C.J. Spiller played only 12 offensive snaps against New England, his lowest number in a game that he didn't get hurt since 2011. Spiller is struggling as much as he has since joining the Bills as a first-round draft pick in 2010. He carried 10 times and gained 8 yards in the Bills' victory at Detroit. He followed that with 19 yards on six carries, and lost a critical fumble late in the first half, in the loss to New England. That is 16 carries for 27 yards.
