Buffalo Bills fan Ezra Castro, who is a well recognized superfan nicknamed “Pancho Billa,” got the dream of a lifetime this weekend. He is battling cancer, so his friends lobbied for the BIlls to let him announce one of their draft picks at this weekend’s NFL draft. The Bills said they couldn’t sawing it, but brought him to the draft to lead their fan section. In the 3rd round, team legends Andre Reed and Fred Jackson came up on stage to make the Bills’ pick,  but to everyone's surprise, they told Castro‘s story, and invited him on stage to make the team’s pick! He cried tears of joy and is gaining national attention now, which will hopefully help in his battle with cancer. Watch the moment below...
