The Buffalo Bills will look back on the 2015 NFL Draft and be immensely proud of their choices.

The Bills didn't have a pick in the first round of the draft thanks to their 2014 trade that saw them acquire Sammy Watkins, but with their 2nd and 5th round picks they drafted cornerback Ronald Darby and Karlos Williams, respectively. Both have excelled.

Only one of them has just tied an NFL record, however, and that's the rookie running back.

Thanks to his 26-yard touchdown reception last night against the New York Jets, Williams matched a record that has stood since 1998.

Last night saw Williams score a touchdown in his sixth straight game during his rookie year, which matches the record set by former New England Patriots running back Robert Edwards in the late 90's.

The former Florida State man has managed to register seven touchdowns already, five on the ground and two through the air, making him an integral part of the Bills offense under head coach Rex Ryan.

Williams touchdown was a crucial one as it saw the Bills move out to a 19-3 lead, with the Jets only managing to reach 17 points as Buffalo ended up winning 22-17 at MetLife Stadium.
