The Buffalo Bills signed the first of their eight draft picks on Thursday by inking a deal with seventh-round pick Chris Gragg.

The former tight end from Arkansas missed eight games during his senior season after suffering a knee injury. For his career in Fayetteville, Gragg caught 72 passes for 1,003 yards and seven touchdowns.

“It feels like the entire draft process is finally over,” Gragg said, via the team’s official website. “I’m back to being a football player now. I’ve been talking to the coaches and they seem very excited for me to be here and I’m ready to get to work.”

The Bills picked up the extra selection used to select Gragg in the trade with the St. Louis Rams on the first day of the draft. Buffalo traded down in the first round and picked up a second- and seventh-round in the process.

  1. He’s not much of a blocker, but he’s an intriguing prospect because of his ability as a receiver. He ran a 4.50 at the combine, which I believe was the best time out of all the tight ends in attendance.

  2. I’m not a Buffalo Bills fan by any means, I’m actually an Eagles fan, however I think this kid will be a good player in the league. When I watched tape on Tyler Wilson, Chris Gragg was consistently catching footballs left and right. He seemed pretty athletic and ran great routes. He also went up against the best conference in college football so that should tell you something right there. It’s unfortunate what happened to him his senior season, but if you watch his junior tape, this kid is special.

    Good pick Buffalo

  3. Once this kid learns a little more about blocking, he’ll be a big help for EJ Manuel.

  4. Great sign, wonderful student from a great family and outstanding football pro. Gragg put on a show at the combines and expect to be an outstanding Bill’s Tight End.
