Zay Jones of the Bills
Taken in Round 2 in 2017
The next pick: Forrest Lamb needed two years to adjust to the NFL, but he grabbed a starting spot for the Chargers at offensive guard in 2020.
Other picks in that round: We have covered this round with Dion Dawkins at No. 63. However, JuJu Smith-Schuster certainly is worth noting with the other top names. He has caught 308 passes for the Steelers, including 111 in 2018.
The details: The Bills hoped Jones could step in at wide receiver as a rookie. He caught 27 passes in 2017, and more than doubled it (56) a year later with seven touchdowns. But Zay started slowly in 2019 and was traded to the Raiders for a fifth-round pick. Jones saw limited duties with Las Vegas in 2020.
Other 37s: The pickings are slim. Bandits fans might remember Brenden Thenhaus, a third-round pick in 2006. He left after his rookie season, but came back in 2011 to score 17 goals.
