The Buffalo Bills made Paul Seymour - an All-American tight end out of Michigan - the number seven overall pick in the 1973 draft.  Though his career statistics are rather pedestrian, he was a skilled receiver with a knack for making key third down catches.  His real value to the Bills, though, was his blocking.  And it was his blocking that made him an unofficial sixth member of "The Electric Company."
