Bills continue addressing team needs in draft

WBFO File Photo

The Buffalo Bills addressed both sides of the ball on Saturday with selections in the NFL Draft. The team grabbed safety Duke Williams from Nevada, defensive back Jonathan Meeks from Clemson and Florida State kicker Dustin Hopkins. Hopkins was a teammate of the team's first overall pick, quarterback E.J. Manuel. With their final selection, the Bills took a big and versatile tight end, Chris Gragg from Arkansas. Tight end has been a longtime need position for the Bills. Gragg claims that he can catch and block and that he is "fast and explosive," qualities that made him very attractive to the team.

Former UB Bull Steven Means, a defensive lineman, was selected in the 5th round by Tampa Bay.
