The Bills wouldn't grab Nicks. At the time he had a poor draft stock bc of his combine and was a late 1st round pick. Crabtree was the bees knees in that draft and rated much higher even though he was a slower, smaller version of Nicks.
If anything Buffalo would have taken Maclin. But I always had Nicks and Britt rated very high. That was a great year for WRs.
