The Stevie Johnson era is over in Buffalo. The Bills traded Johnson to the San Francisco 49ers on Friday for a 2015 fourth-round pick that can be bumped up to a 3rd.

This article isn’t about the trade or how Buffalo’s offense will look without him in 2014. No, this is about one of the most underappreciated and overcriticized players in recent memory. The majority of fans were positive about Johnson, but there was a small yet vocal group of people who bashed Johnson whenever they could.

There are plenty of talented defensive tackles available in the 2014 NFL Draft but the group as a whole lacks players with a complete skill set. Some of the prospects are stout run defenders who lack pass-rush ability; others are undersized prospects who are good penetrators but will struggle to hold up against NFL defensive linemen.

Aaron Donald headlines the defensive tackle class. Donald is an explosive penetrating defensive tackle who wrecks havoc on the interior. Donald has incredible first-step quickness and strength out of his stance that is troubling for guards to handle. He has quick, violent hands which he utilizes to beat his opponent. He has the strength to dispose of blockers and make plays in the backfield.

Buffalo Bills Draft’s seventh installment of “Grading the Buffalo Bills’ 2010 NFL Draft” takes a look at Buffalo’s late picks, Danny Batten, Levi Brown and Kyle Calloway.

Round 6, Pick 192 : Danny Batten, DE/LB, South Dakota State

Batten, much like Arthur Moats, was another small-school athlete that the Bills had hoped would fit into their 3-4 defense as depth.

Round 7, Pick 209: Levi Brown, QB, Troy

Buffalo didn’t address the quarterback position early in the draft, so they took a flier on Brown, a developmental prospect.

Round 7, Pick 216: Kyle Calloway, OT, Iowa

Calloway was a prospect that fell later than expected in the draft. He seemed like a very strong value pick in the seventh round.
