John Miller of the Bills
Taken in Round 3 in 2015
Other picks in that round: Future Bills’ tight end Tyler Kroft went to the Bengals at No. 85. Running back David Johnson of the Cardinals and wide receiver Tyler Lockett of the Seahawks highlight the other selections.
The details: The Bills had high hopes could step right into the offensive line and improve that group. He did become an instant starter, and spent four seasons here. Then it was on to Cincinnati in 2019 (signed three-year contract, released after one year), and Carolina in 2020.
Other 81s: Marlo Perry mostly played special teams as a linebacker for the Bills during six seasons in the 1990s. Bob Halkidis arrived in Buffalo for the Sabres in 1984, but couldn’t stop shuffling between the Sabres and Rochester. Bob was traded to the Kings in 1989 for Dale DeGray. Halkidis saw the world through hockey after that, finishing his career with St. Petersburg in Russia in 2001.
