Dawson Knox of the Bills

Taken in Round 3 in 2019

Other pick in that round: Running back David Montgomery of the Bears went at No. 73. He has run for almost 2,000 yards in two seasons for the Bears.

The details: Knox gets the nod mostly on potential. The Bills liked him enough to trade a couple of fourth-round draft choices for him. He has started two seasons with the Bills, and has 52 catches with five touchdowns.

Other 96s: Chris Butler broke into the hockey pros in 2008, and didn’t stop until 2019. He was on the Buffalo roster from 2008 to 2011, and played with the Sabres until he was traded to the Flames. Damian Covington was a reserve linebacker for the Bills for three seasons. Harrison Phillips has been a reserve on the Bills’ defensive line for the last three seasons.
