Our pick by pick draft capsules will give you the vital combine numbers along with a short synopsis of each draft pick's strengths and short comings. We will post each player's capsule shortly after they are picked!
1) RB C.J. Spiller Clemson 5-10 5/8, 196, 4.37 - Spiller is an explosive back but considered too small by many to be an every down back. Something he won't need to be in Buffalo with Fred Jackson and for the time being Marshawn Lynch still in place. He may be able to add 10 pounds to his frame as long as he doesn't lose his top end speed. He's tough beyond his size. He's an outside runner who can turn the corner but he can't push the pile on the inside. Considered an excellent receiver with very good route running abilities and can line up wide outside.
2) DT Torell Troup UCF 6-2¾, 314, 5.17 - Troup is a mammoth guy who is the perfect space eater nose tackle for a 3-4 defense. He will fit in nicely right away on running downs and should help the run defense out. He's a powerful bull rusher with a good first step. Not very fluid with average lateral movement. Good moves and mean streak but does get knocked off balance at times.
3) DE Alex Carrington Arkansas St. 6-5¼, 285, 4.92 - A pass rushing end who projects to a perfect 5-technique guy in the 3-4 defense. Good size, strength, and speed and very good at the point of attack. Solid against the run and a good bull rusher. Lacks burst and a quickness and sometimes struggles to shed blockers. He's intelligent but needs to get more consistent.
4) WR Marcus Easley Connecticut. 6-2¾, 210, 4.46 - He's a big receiver with raw skills who makes the tough catch and does a good job of running after the catch. Has impressive speed for his big frame. He sometimes drops passes and catches with his body instead of his hands. Good special teams player who will need to work on route running. Could be one year wonder with most of his playing time coming in his senior year.
5) OT Ed Wang Virginia Tech 6-4¾, 314, 5.20 - Wang his a three year starter after moving over from tight end. Good height and weight but a little slim. Good upper body strength but lacks the lower body strength to be a solid anchor. Has good quickness and changes direction well. Vulnerable to double moves and stays up too much.
6) LB Arthur Moats James Madison 6-0¼, 246, 4.66 - High motor player with good toughness. Good range in pursuit, fast, good hands and arms to shed blocks. Had good moves and counters to go with his quickness to make him a solid pass rusher. May struggle in transition to a stand up position. May struggle in man coverage. Big step up in competition from Div 1-AA to pros. He will play mostly inside for the Bills but can go outside on passing downs.
6) OLB Danny Batten South Dakota St. 6-2 3/8, 248 - Played in a variety of roles for a small college program. Will start on the outside but can play inside as well. He played mostly defensive end in college in a 4-3 system. Plays with good leverage against bigger opponents. Good hustle and effort. Lacks elite quickness.
7) QB Levi Brown Troy 6-3½, 229, 4.99 - Has a pretty strong arm but is a very raw talent who hasn't played much under center the past two years. Not accurate on the move or deep. Doesn't get out the pocket quickly. Not easily flustered. Very accurate on underneath routes. Not mobile because he's slow. Takes a lot of sacks. Throws hard. Will need to learn how to go through his progressions quicker.
7) OT Kyle Calloway Iowa 6-6½, 323, 5.53 - He comes from OL university with the Hawkeyes. Has great size. length, and has a solid build. Has some good quickness and picks up the edge rusher well. Plays with a nasty streak and uses his hands well to finish blocks. Will play guard with the Bills. Good footwork and technique. Doesn't block in space well because of average athleticism.
