Paul Guidry of the Bills
Taken in Round 8 in 1966.
Other picks in the round: Doug Buffone went in the pick before Guidry at No. 73 to the Chargers. The linebacker signed with the Bears, and 186 games in the pros. Pete Lammons was a tight end for the Jets in their Super Bowl championship team of 1968.
The details: Guidry sadly got to see a lot of losing football. He arrived in 1966, when he had a reserve role at linebacker on a team that reached the AFL championship game. But the Bills went straight downhill after that. Paul was a starter in Buffalo through 1972, and finished his career in Houston the following year.
Other 73s: Preston Brown moved right into the Bills starting lineup in 2014 and stayed there for four seasons. Then he moved on to Cincinnati and Oakland in 2018-19. John Kimbrough (1977) only lasted one season in Buffalo, catching 16 passes.
