Buffalo Bills reach deals with 6 of 9 draft picks
The Buffalo Bills have wasted little time locking up a majority
of their rookie draft class by agreeing to contracts with six of
their nine selections.
The deals were reached Thursday as the prospects reported for a
three-day rookie minicamp that opens Friday.
The Bills reached agreements with their final six draft picks:
fourth-round selections, Florida State linebacker Nigel Bradham and
LSU cornerback Ron Brooks; fifth-rounders, Florida State offensive
tackle Zebrie Sanders and TCU linebacker Tank Carder; as well as
sixth-round pick, Oregon guard Mark Asper, and seventh-round
selection Western Michigan kicker John Potter.
That leaves Buffalo with its top three picks unsigned, including
South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore, who was selected 10th
overall. Unsigned prospects can participate in minicamps, but must
be under contract before reporting for training camp.
