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) QB EJ Manuel, Florida St. 6-5, 237, 4.65 - Manuel has a very strong arm but has struggled with consistency and accuracy. He is fast and can also make plays with his feet. Has good leadership qualities but is far from polished. May have the most upside of any quarterback in the draft but may not be ready to step right in and start. He is big and strong and can take a hit while getting downfield quickly. Considered a bit jittery under pressure. Has high character and has decent touch on his basis. He is the 2nd fastest quarterback in the draft.
2) WR Robert Woods, USC 6-0, 201, 4.51 - Great route runner perhaps best in the draft. Good hands who doesn't drop too many balls. Doesn't have ideal size or speed. Similar to Stevie Johnson. Hard worker with great intangibles. Goes over the middle well and does a good job after the catch. Tough to tackle. Needs to get better on down the field patterns. Polished player who can step right in to play.
2) LB Kiko Alonso, Oregon 6-4, 238, 4.75 - Solid versatile player who can play inside or outside. Played mostly inside at college but fits in with the hybrid defense the Bills are going with. Explosive hitter with rare athleticism and good flexibility and balance. Had some run ins with police in the past. Aggressive player with good straight line speed and quick feet. Not a consistent pass rusher.
3) WR Marquise Goodwin, Texas 5-9, 183, 4.27 - Goodwin is a football player who happens to be a track star. He finished 10th at the London Olympics in the long jump. He was the fastest player at the combine with the best 40 time in a decade. He was also hand timed at the combine at 4.17 and 4.19. He has a high ceiling since he lost development time to a successful track career. He knows how to absorb hits and utilizes head fakes well. His lack of bulk could hurt him at this level. He is a raw route runner who blocks well despite his size.
4) SS Duke Williams, Nevada 6-0, 190, 4.52 - He is aggressive with a nasty edge. Has good hands and ball skills. A hard hitting tackler with solid closing speed. Has the talent of a higher draft pick but has had off the field issues. He has matured since then and is considered a good leader. Durable, three year starter who is a playmaker and very highly productive. Has above average discipline.
5) S Jonathan Meeks, Clemson 6-0 1/2, 211, 4.6 - He has good size and range. Has the skills to play both safety positions. Has good speed and can hit well. Has good upside and his stats were kept down by what he was asked to do at Clemson. A raw prospect who makes mental mistakes.
6) K Dustin Hopkins, Florida St. 6-2, 193, 4.74 - He has a big leg and is accurate as well. Kicks the ball high and has never had kick blocked. Decent size so he can make the occasional tackle. Needs to get more consistent in pressure situations. Outdoor kicker but in warm weather.
7) TE Chris Gragg, Arkansas 6-3, 244, 4.50 - Fast receiving tight end whose straight line speed allows him to separate from linebackers. Played wide receiver in his freshman year. Not very smooth a bit slow getting off the line. May be more of an H-back. Had some drops.
