Bills top draft choice, CB Ron Darby, is facing the same transition as every other rookie on Buffalo’s roster. There are a lot of new things at the NFL level. Often times rookies talk about adjusting to the speed of the NFL game. In Buffalo’s rookie minicamp however, Darby is the fastest player on the field, so speed is of no concern.
“I’m blessed with speed myself, so it’s not an issue for me,” Darby said. “I’m just focused on a lot more technical stuff—the way routes break down, the way receivers cut, things like that. It’s more technical. The more film you watch the easier everything will be.”
Darby has been working a lot the past two days to get his head around to locate the ball, as the quarterbacks, perhaps by the coaching staff’s design, have been testing Darby deep a good deal.
The rookie cornerback has had no problem going stride for stride with any receiver he faces, but his technique is a bit inconsistent when it comes to exactly what secondary coach Donnie Henderson is looking for. As Darby himself said it’s all part of the process.
