Bills Undrafted Free Agents

The Bills picked up nine players over the seven rounds of the NFL Draft, but opted to wait until signing undrafted players to address the secondary.

The Bills have signed cornerbacks John Destin of Tulsa and Stephan Virgil of Virginia Tech as well as safeties Dominique Harris of Temple and Brett Johnson of California.

The rest of the Bills signees are Naaman Roosevelt, WR, Buffalo; Donald Jones, WR, Youngstown St.; Joique Bell, RB, Wayne State; Antonio Coleman, DE/OLB, Auburn; David Nelson, WR, Florida; Sean Allen, C/G, ECU; Jorge Guerra, OL, Texas A&M-Kingsville and Cordaro Howard, OL, Georgia Tech

  1. Yeah, QB out of Troy in the 7th. Naaman Roosevelt is someone I was hoping the Bills would get in the 7th Round. Not great size, but he catches everything. Don’t expect him to make the team this year, but when he cracks the lineup, he is a student of the game, gets awesome seperation, and should make an impact…

  2. Suprisingly I like the Bills draft, should have moved lynch though, i see what the bills are doing they are trying to disguise the fact that there line isnt very good by putting playmakers on the field, spiller is a home run hitter i dont care what any one says and he could prolly do it with mooreman and lindell at tackles (bad idea buffalo dont do it) But even with a mediocre line we had 1700 yards from our top 2 backs that is above average in my opinion, as for naaman, james hardy watch your back this kid works hard and is just as big of red zone threat as you are. And as far as the QB we took hes a specimen good project and a solid pick for the bills! GOOO BILLLSSS

  3. Everyone knows that the Bills need a QB. We also need a WR opposite Lee Evans, a OLB opposite Maybin, a LT, a RT, a NT, a TE, safety help, DE depth and CB depth. No rookie QB can come in to a team with that many holes and produce. Its no secret that the Bills are rebuilding. Everyone is giving the Bills a hard time about passing on Clausen and McCoy but a lot of teams passed. The “experts” whose job is to evaluate talent must have seen something that told them they are not franchise guys and I agree. The Bills did the right thing this year by filling holes first. Next year there will be 4 potential “franchise” QB’s in Mallett, Locker, Devlin and Luck. The Bills will have a good chance at selecting one of those guys and they should come into a better situation. The one thing I didn’t like that the Bills did was pass on Charles Brown in the 2nd round.

  4. What is there to address in the secondary? The Bills did not draft anyone for the secondary, because that they came into the draft with the deepest secondary in the entire NFL. Their top two CBs are Terrence McGee and Leodis McKelvin and their third best is probably Drayton Florence. Next, they have Ashton Youboty and Reggie Corner, who would be starters on many teams. For added depth, they have Ellis Lankster and Lydell Sargeant. For Free Safety, they have last year’s rookie sensation Jairus Byrd who tied for the league lead in interceptions (despite missing two games due to injury) and was selected to the Pro Bowl. Donte Whitner has been the starter at both SS and FS since being drafted #8 overall. Cary Harris provides additional FS depth. Bryan Scott is a solid SS also. George Wilson provides depth at SS and had four interceptions last year. Nic Harris was a safety in college, who was drafted to be an OLB in the 4/3, but now that the Bills are shifting to the 3/4 he will likely move back to safety. The reason the Bills are so loaded in the secondary is that former Coach Dick Jauron played in the league in the secondary, so he was constantly adding more players at CB, SS and FS. In fact, beyond merely not adding to the secondary in the draft, the Bills might have been able to trade some of their backups at CB, SS or FS, to get picks with which they could have added more or better players at positions of need.

  5. Youboty hasnt proven anything, and Corner is a nickel at best! did you see him get toasted by roddy white last year on the first play. The Bills were Smart to draft spiller not a tackle or QB, he was BPA and with the team the way it is we dont need another Todd Collins ( Claussen) we have some good players at CB but Mcgee is turning 30, people are banking on Mckelvin being a shut down #1, and as far as the safety position goes Byrd is great yea, but Whitner is inconsistent and always hurt, Wilson is solid but is not a great cover man and niether is scott, If there was one thing the Bills were good at it was defending the pass and i think it was based on Jauron’s coaching not the talent. Mcgee is a free agent next year and if byrd repeats the year he had, he will hold out. Florence is also ona two year deal so after this season we have No mcgee no florence, 1 year left of whitner, suddenly we have no depth
