Bills sign three picks

The Bills drafted seven players this month and they are well on their way to signing all of them.

The team announced Thursday that they have reached agreement with three picks. Fourth-round cornerback Ross Cockrell, seventh-round linebacker Randell Johnson and seventh-round tackle Seantrel Henderson have all agreed to four-year contracts with the team.

Cockrell started 49 games for Duke and was named first-team All-ACC during his collegiate career and left school as Duke’s all-time leader in interceptions. The Bills have Stephon Gilmore, Leodis McKelvin, Nickell Robey and Corey Graham at corner, so he may need to make an early mark on special teams before he can show off those ballhawking skills on defense.

Special teams will also be the route to the roster for Johnson, who missed a lot of time to injuries while at Florida Atlantic. Henderson came to Miami as a highly touted recruit, but also struggled with injuries as well as time missed because of suspensions. Henderson also reportedly failed a drug test at the combine. He still looks the part of a starting NFL tackle, though, and the limited risk associated with a seventh-round pick was enough for the Bills to see if he’ll ever play the part of one.

    Interested to see if Seantrel Henderson finds the motivation to play in the NFL. He has the immeasurables but his motor is lacking and has been for a long time. Interested to see if he is able to turn the corner.

    I remember when he was deciding b/w Ohio State and Miami. 2-3 Ohio State OLmen went before him. I’m glad we didn’t have to deal with his drama and prima donna attitude at Ohio State.

    Prima Donna? Lmao, far from it.

    He’s a pothead, that was his downfall…he was a 5-star recruit and has elite talent.

    I wanted him in the 3rd or 4th…as he once was rated a sure-fire top-5-10 pick.

    A line of…
    Cordy Glenn
    Cyril Richardson
    Eric Wood
    Seantrel Henderson
    Cyrus Kouandjio

    Would be absolutely dominating. Wood was a 1st round pick, and all the others definitely had the talent to be early picks.

    Love it…big, nasty and athletic!

    After Seantrel is cut, he won’t even be brought back to the practice squad.

    Seantrel will not be cut. The 6’8″340 lb VERY athletic man who was a basketball standout too will be the red zone TE.
