With the undrafted free agent market playing out Saturday night it looks like the Bills landed a quality receiver in Tennessee Tech WR Da’Rick Rogers, who made a pre-draft visit to Orchard Park on April 10th.
That according to the receiver himself who tweeted that he’s agreed to join Buffalo as an undrafted rookie free agent.
I’m a Buffalo Bill.

Though Rogers does have off the field concerns after getting kicked out of the Tennessee program for failed drug tests, the risk is minimal as an undrafted player. Buffalo thought very highly of his route running ability.
“He’s the most polished of those three Tennessee receivers in my opinion in terms of route running and all that,” said Bills scout Tom Roth in reference to Cordarrelle Patterson and Justin Hunter, who Rogers played with at Tennessee before finishing up at Tech. “He reminds me physically of Eric Moulds, that body type. That’s what I thought when I saw him. A big, physical, muscular guy. Explosive. He had a 39-inch vertical. He ran a 4.48 at the Combine. He’s got all the physical stuff.”
