Linebacker is still a positional need for Buffalo. Here are some of the LB prospects that could still be on the board when the Bills are on the clock with the 121st pick in round 4.
South Florida’s Tyrone McKenzie who was a tackling machine and is a fit at strong side LB. Also a former teammate of Alvin Bowen before transferring from Iowa State to So. Florida.
Southern Miss’ Gerald McRath who was a playmaker in college, but is a bit undersized to play MLB as he did in college and is probably a weak side player.
TCU’s Jason Phillips, who is a bit undersized for some schemes, but could probably transition to SLB in Buffalo’s defense at 6’1″ and 239 pounds. A four-time All MWC selection.
USC’s Kaluka Maiava could be there and he’s been compared to Freddie Keiaho. He also offers good versatility at LB as he played all three positions in his time with the Trojans.
Georgia’s Dannell Ellerbe figures to be there too and is a hard hitter that also offers versatility having played all three LB positions in his college career.
