Buffalo traded way down the list and picked a CB. I don't know what the Bills needs are, but I assume it's one of everything.
Every 4 or 5 years, the Bills have to draft a CB in the 1st round because they let the previous one walk. I'm fine with them trading back. They got an extra 3rd round pick, plus KC's 1st round pick next year. KC happens to have the 2nd hardest schedule this year. Bills needed more picks because they let a lot of people go. The CB they did pick was the 2nd best CB available. They could have had the best one, but, they need more bodies.
If you are referring to Ruben Foster as the "best LB available" when the Lions picked, I may have an explanation. First, he failed a drug test at the combine because of a diluted sample. He says he was just trying to stay hydrated. Most teams probably would have overlooked that. During the draft, Mike Mayock said Foster was falling because a medical report said that his shoulder was injured and it will probably need surgery.
On the NFL Network, Rich Eisen (who went to Michigan), had their people replay the Cleveland fans reaction to the Browns picking Jabril Peppers from Michigan. He loved that people from Ohio were cheering a Michigan player.
