Bills fill more holes on final day of NFL Draft

Updated: Sunday, May 11 2014, 12:11 AM EDT

The Buffalo Bills wrapped up an active 2014 NFL Draft with four more picks on the third and final day of the draft, addressing team needs on both sides of the ball in the process.


The Bills selected a cornerback, two offensive linemen and a linebacker with their final four picks in the draft.

With their fourth round pick (109 overall) Buffalo picked up Duke cornerback Ross Cockrell, making him the highest drafted member of the Blue Devil program since 1999.

With their fifth round pick (153 overall) the Bills selected Cyril Richardson, and offensive lineman out of Baylor. Richardson is a highly decorated player who likely fits best as a guard, and could develop into a starter down the line, and add immediate depth up front.

After playing the role of spectator in the sixth round, Buffalo added linebacker Randell Johnson from Florida Atlantic, and tackle Seantrel Henderson from the University of Miami.

Overall, the Bills made seven picks in this years draft. They selected three offensive linemen, two linebackers, a cornerback and a wide receiver. They also traded for running back Bryce Brown, formerly of the Philadelphia Eagles, and traded away wide receiver Stevie Johnson.
