Did we miss out on a diamond in the rough?

I listen to the Bills radio show on my way home from work just to get a football fix until the season starts. They open up training camp tomorrow and they were going over what to look for. One thing that came up was that rookie tackle and 7th round pick Seantrel Henderson is going to open camp as the 1st team LT. Granted Henderson was a first round talent and fell due to off the field issues, but it makes me wonder if we missed out on a chance to pick up a real steal at the end of the draft.

 

Side note, Cyrus Kouandjio is opening as their starting RT.. he was another one guys here wanted

We probably missed out on quite a few rough diamonds.

We missed out on Josh Gordon. We missed out on Lavon Brazil. We missed out on Vontaz Burfict. We missed out on Alfonzo Dennard. We could do this all day. 

 

We drafted a rough diamond named Brandon Hogan and he never got his act together. We drafted Greg Hardy and it worked out well, until it didn't. It's just a crapshoot really.

You just have to hope that we "hit more than we miss" with later rounds of the draft...round 4 thru 7 are where you really have to be sharpe and do your homework.

There are always going to be guys you wish you had drafted in hindsight. Not saying I will not look back at what could have been but camp hasn't started yet. Last year we had two UDFAs (White and Lester) and two UDFAs on offense (Bell and Chandler)
start and/or significantly contribute to our football team. I know Bell brings out the worst in posters including myself but he has overachieved.

It's a week before training camp and I am about 2 1/2 glasses into a moderately priced nice tasting bottle of Spanish wine. I don't plan to panic until 15 minutes or so into the second session of TC.

The only thing that truly grinded my gears in a recent draft was going this Kugbila guy over Dave Bakhtiari. 

 

I don't like looking back but that's my big one.

Cordy Glenn is injured and I don't know much about their line depth.

 

Edit: My mistake he has an illness.

He's out right now, once he is back I don't know who they will play at LT/RT. They seemed a bit down on Glenn to be honest.
