We know the names of all of the top prospects in the upcoming draft. Oregon Defensive End Kayvon Thibodeaux, Alabama OT Evan Neal, Notre Dame Safety Kyle Hamilton, and Michigan Edge Rusher Aidan Hutchinson are all but assured to have their names called on April 28th, during the 1st Round, and more than likely in the top-10.

But, for teams that have won it all of late, a lot of the success has been found in the later rounds of the draft.  Do we need to bring up the name of the former 6th round pick that was selected at number 199 by the New England Patriots?

The point is, teams need to not only hit on the big names but do their due diligence leading up to the draft, so they can find the quality depth that is needed to make a run deep into the playoffs.

The Bills have been able to hit on several late-round picks and undrafted rookie-free agents throughout the years.  General Manager Brandon Beane, HC Sean McDermot, and the rest of the Bills' staff are going to have to find some more gems on the weekend of April 28th at this year's draft, as the Bills look to live up to their lofty Vegas status as Super Bowl favorites.

Here's a look back at 7 of the Bills' NFL Draft hidden gems through the last decade.
