Our pick by pick draft capsules gives 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) CB Stephon Gilmore, South Carolina 6-0 1/2, 190, 4.40 - Gilmore is a physical corner who can come up and stop the run like another safety in the box. He is a good mental player with great character and good ball skills to go along with his superior speed. Will likely step in and start from day one. Aggressive player in man coverage who has excellent awareness. Good as a blitzer off the edge. Has started since his freshman year and is very mature and experienced starting 40 games.
2) OT Cordy Glenn, Georgia 6-5 3/4, 345, 5.15 - Glenn is a huge player with tremendous length and size. The Bills feel those characteristics make him a perfect player to man the blindside of the quarterback despite the fact he played guard most of his college career. Hand span and arm length are above average and has decent footwork. He has good mobility in pass protection for his size. Gets a good push in run blocking.
3) WR T.J. Graham, North Carolina State 5-11 3/8, 188, 4.41 - Graham is a shifty, speedy receiver in the Roscoe Parrish mold. The Bills are going to put him outside but that may not be the best player for this good run after the catch player. He was a football player that was also a track star in College. He can blow by defenders. Solid punt and kick returning abilities as well.
4) LB Nigel Bradham, Florida State 6-1 7/8, 241, 4.64 - He is fast has good speed and should be able to add depth to all three linebacker positions. Solid tackler and good in pass coverage with very good range. A monster special teams player. Good anchor and has good hand work to shed blockers. Not a pass rusher. Built for the weakside where the team needs depth.
4) CB Ron Brooks, LSU 5-10, 190, 4.37 - Solid role player at LSU. Durable and great speed. Good closing ability on passes. Uses speed to become an excellent blitzer out of the slot and to become a great gunner on special teams. Not ideal size but should help right away on all special teams and as a sixth corner.
5) OT Zebrie Sanders, Florida St. 6-5 5/8, 320, 5.41 - Like Glenn has a big frame and wingspan. Good footwork and technique. Great hand placement and good pass blocker. Would be a good guard as well since he'e excellent in pull blocking. May struggle with power rushers but handles speed rushers nicely. Was projected to go higher.
5) LB Tank Carder, TCU 6-2 3/8, 236, 4.69 - Tough player with great instincts. Excels at anything he does. Has a great awareness of the game which helps overcome the lack of top end speed. Needs to bulk up a bit to play strongside or in the middle.
6) G Mark Asper, Oregon 6-6 3/8, 319 - Has above average strength, size, and speed. Short arms projects as a guard. Takes some wrong steps but drives well. Tough player that gives great effort.
7) K John Potter, Western Michigan - No measurables out or needed on this guy. He's considered a kickoff specialist who will only make the team if they decide to carry two kickers.
