The Buffalo Bills will now have all their rookie draft picks at training camp after linebacker Kelvin Sheppard signed his contract.

The third-round pick out of LSU signed on Saturday, after the Bills completed their first practice at training camp.

Sheppard was the last of Buffalo's nine draft picks to sign, and the only one to miss any practice time.

Listed at 6-foot-2 and 250 pounds, Sheppard was a three-year starter and led the Tigers in tackles in each of the past two seasons. His 311 career tackles rank ninth in school history.

He will have an opportunity to compete for a backup job at the inside spot on a revamped defense that ranked last against the run last year.
