The Buffalo Bills selected Kevon Seymour in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 218th overall.
Seymour made some noise with a 4.39-second 40-yard dash at the Combine, though the rest of his workout was a bit uneven. He's generally a practice squad prospect.
The Bills once made the ill-conceived decision to draft Marquise Goodwin in the third round, theorizing his track speed might provide an explosive element at receiver. Listenbee is at least as good of a prospect as Goodwin was, so while the prospect of another speed-only receiver might not excite Bills fans, this still looks like a great pick in the sixth round. Listenbee might be the fastest player in the league once he arrives, and even if all he does is run fly routes, Listenbee can blur past a secondary if it doesn't take him seriously.
Buffalo Bills GM Doug Whaley expects Reggie Ragland - the 41st overall selection in the draft - to start at inside linebacker in the team's 3-4 defense, The Buffalo News reports. Zach Brown , picked up by the team in early April, had been eyed for that spot prior to the draft.
Brown can capably fill either inside linebacker spot, so at least now the Bills have some depth or an insurance policy should Ragland struggle with the pro game. But Brown's IDP value will likely be nil entering the season.
Buffalo Bills GM Doug Whaley expects Reggie Ragland - the 41st overall selection in the draft - to start at inside linebacker in the team's 3-4 defense, The Buffalo News reports. "We'll have two guys that are defensive players that play football well," Whaley said. "I think a lot of people think (Ragland) is a true 'Mike,' but we feel he can play 'Will.' And with Preston (Brown) at 'Mike,' I think we've got two physical linebackers that fit our defensive scheme (that we're trying to build in Buffalo. And that's tough, physical players."
The Bills had a hole at that inside spot after Nigel Bradham left in free agency, and it looks like the team is already handing that job to Ragland - even after picking up Zach Brown in free agency. Ragland isn't considered an athletic freak or the type that can cover speedy backs out of the backfield, but he's a very developed big linebacker with a strong sense for the game. The key question seems to be whether he can be valuable on the field for all three downs. At least initially, the Bills seem to think he can pull it off.
The Buffalo Bills selected Williams in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 156th overall.
Great pick. The Bills got an apparent steal with Karlos Williams in the fifth round last year, and this pick should yield similar results. Assuming his season-ending foot injury from 2015 isn't a long-term issue, Williams has the frame, athleticism and skill set to turn into a starting three-down runner in the NFL. Of course, Williams and LeSean McCoy will block him in the meantime, but we'd be surprised if Williams doesn't have himself a nice run for a few years at some point in his career.
