Report: Bills undrafted signings

Posted by Chris Brown on April 24, 2010 – 7:38 pm

This is anything but official, but there are reports out there already on some of the undrafted rookies that have signed with Buffalo.

Every year NEPatriotsdraft.com puts out a list of undrafted free agent signings for every team in the league that is pretty much on the mark. Though the Bills usually do not confirm any undrafted signings for a few days, here are the player names that have reportedly signed with Buffalo.

John Destin, CB, Tulsa
Naaman Roosevelt, WR, Buffalo
Donald Jones, WR, Youngstown St.
Joique Bell, RB, Wayne State
Stephan Virgil, CB, Virginia Tech
Brett Johnson, S, Cal
Antonio Coleman, DE/OLB, Auburn

Seeing cornerbacks on this list is not surprising since GM Buddy Nix mentioned that they had landed some cornerbacks among their undrafted signings.

“You always try to take a corner,” said Nix of the draft. “Now we got some just after the draft. You always need to get them. You use them so much, they’re on the field so much. What helped us to pick the guys we did (in the draft) is that we feel pretty good about our secondary and the depth and all of it. We’ll pick up a couple of good players. Most of the guys we’re getting after the draft we had draftable grades on.”

Roosevelt has reportedly also announced he is signing with Buffalo on his Facebook page. So a local Buffalo kid looks like he’ll be staying local. When all of the undrafted signings are official we’ll have them for you on the home page of Buffalobills.com.
