For 32 young men, yesterday was a dream come true as they were drafted in the 1st round of the NFL draft.
You could see the excitement and happiness in each and every player that had their name called out last night.
The Buffalo Bills made a move and jumped up from pick #25 to pick #23 to select Florida Gator Kaiir Elam and his reaction to the news of being drafted by the Bills will give you goosebumps.
Check out this video the Buffalo Bills posted on their Twitter page.
The Bills selected a player that they think will help their defense this season as the Bills will try to win the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history. Elam was one of the most highly-rated players in this year's draft and many experts think the Bills got a deal by selecting him at 23rd overall. Many experts thought he would have been long gone by the time the Bills were on the clock. It didn't take long for the newest Buffalo Bill to make the trip to Western New York. Less than 24 hours after hearing his name called, he was in Buffalo to get ready for the upcoming season.
Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane and the scouting department will be back at it tonight for rounds 2 and 3 and will wrap up the draft tomorrow afternoon with rounds 4 through 7.
