In recent memory, there is absolutely no doubt about who is the biggest bust the Bills drafted in the last 25 years. With the 11th overall selection in the 2009 NFL Draft, the Bills selected Penn State’s Aaron Maybin to be the next great pass rusher for the Bills. He was disastrous for the organization to say the very least.

Maybin may have been a consensus All-American for Penn State in 2008 in getting after the quarterback, but he did everything but that in two years with the Bills. Maybin NEVER record a single sack in his two seasons with the Bills!

He was cut by Buffalo during the 2011 preseason after continuing to show absolutely no explosiveness as a pass rusher. It wasn’t until the division rival New York Jets picked him up off waivers in 2011 that Maybin drove a quarterback into the turf for the first time as a professional.

At the end of his brief NFL career, Maybin played in four seasons on three teams (Buffalo, New York, Cincinnati), totaling 6.0 sacks, 36 combined tackles in 48 NFL games. He averaged less than a tackle per game, which makes one wonder what did he actually do on the gridiron.

Not only is Maybin one of the biggest busts in Bills history, he has to be one of the worst picks any team has made in the NFL in the last 10 years. Zero sacks as a supposed franchise pass rusher. How does that even happen?
