Seymour’s knowledge base helping his game

Bills sixth-round pick Kevon Seymour has been on the fast track since spring practices. That didn’t slow down on Tuesday as he was the replacement for the injured Nickell Robey-Coleman in the slot in the first team nickel package.

Seymour didn’t see a ton of action on Tuesday, but he was out there with the starters defending the red zone during team work and also saw time in 11-on-11 in the slot. The USC product played most of his college career on raw ability, but secondary coach Tim McDonald and assistant secondary coach Ed Reed are schooling him on the defensive concepts as a whole. It’s given Seymour the knowledge of how to play an opponent based on where his help in the defense lies.

“I’m doing a better job of knowing where my help is, like that helped a lot,” he said. “In college, I knew how to read splits and routes and things like that, but I just really wasn’t aware of where my help was. So now I’m getting better at that and I’m doing much better so it’s helping me play faster and better.”
