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
