The Buffalo Bills have shown a penchant for making a splash. They signed diva receiver Terrell Owens, and we recently learned they pursued quarterback Michael Vick. Yet they gravely miscalculated by declining to acquire a tackle to replace two-time Pro Bowler Jason Peters.
Put those two elements together, and Ole Miss tackle Michael Oher would have been a perfect fit for the Bills. His life was the subject of a book and turned into a major motion picture that comes out next week.
More importantly, he's already establishing himself as a star on the field for the Baltimore Ravens, who took him 23rd overall. The Bills drafted Penn State pass-rusher Aaron Maybin 11th and Louisville guard Eric Wood 28th.
