ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP)
The Buffalo Bills have drafted Texas receiver Marquise Goodwin with the 78th pick in the NFL draft, adding speed to what's becoming a new-look offense.
Listed at 5-foot-8 and 179 pounds, Goodwin competed at the London Summer Games last year, where he finished 10th in the long jump. He was also a sprinter on the Longhorns track team.
In football, he had 120 catches for 1,364 yards and seven touchdowns in 50 career games, including 22 starts. Goodwin became the second receiver drafted by Buffalo on Thursday. The team opened the second round by selecting Southern California's Robert Woods with the 41st pick.
The Bills offense is being transformed under rookie head coach Doug Marrone. Buffalo opened the draft by picking Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel with the 16th pick.
