Ron Edwards of the Bills
Taken in Round 3 in 2001
Other pick in the round: Wide receiver Steve Smith is the star of the group after the wide receiver was taken by Carolina at No. 74. Safety Adrian Wilson (No. 64) made five Pro Bowls as a safety for the Cardinals.
The details: Edwards spent five seasons with the Bills, but only was a starter in 2002. But once he got to Kansas City, he grabbed a regular job for most of the next five years. Edwards finished his career in Carolina in 2012.
Other 76s: Keith Carney had a very long and productive career, but not enough of it was in Buffalo. He was traded for Craig Muni in 1993, and wasn’t done with the NHL until 2008. Marlon Kerner spent four years as a backup cornerback with the Bills in the 1990s. Mike Mosley caught 27 passes in three years as a Bills’ wide receiver in the 1980s. Daniel Sams is the Bandits’ all-time leader in goals-against average and save percentage among goalies, although he only played in five games in 2007.
He got away: Ron Snidow was drafted by the Bills in 1963. The defensive end signed with Washington, and split 10 years of play between there and Cleveland.
