The Buffalo Bills initially held the No. 8 overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, which was used to select a wide receiver.
That pick was made by the St. Louis Rams, who traded up eight spots with the Bills to select dynamic West Virginia playmaker Tavon Austin.
The Bills could have used that selection on a much-needed wide receiver, but instead waited until the second round. This was a smart move, as a player who will quite possibly be the 2013 draft class’ best wide receiver fell to their spot at the No. 41 overall selection.
USC’s Robert Woods was passed upon for the draft’s 40 picks, which included four wide receiver selections (Austin, Clemson’s DeAndre Hopkins, Tennessee’s Cordarrelle Patterson and Justin Hunter).
