The Buffalo Bills shored up the offensive line, linebackers and receiving corps in the 2014 NFL Draft. The team has brought in a number of undrafted free agents to compete for spots on the back end of the roster. Here are five undrafted players who have a good chance of making the 53-man roster this summer.
Darius Robinson joins fellow Clemson Tiger Sammy Watkins on the Buffalo roster. Robinson had the pleasure of matching up against Watkins and Martavis Bryant in practice during college. He will challenge Ron Brooks and Nickell Robey for a roster spot. Brooks is injury-prone, and Robey lacks Robinson's height. Special teams may be his ticket.
Darrin Kitchens started six games at the University of Florida. He made his mark on special teams. With Kiko Alonso, Brandon Spikes, Keith Rivers, Preston Brown and Nigel Bradham already in place, it looks like special teams will be Kitchens' best shot at making the roster.
Another Gator, Damien Jacobs was a rotational player for Florida. He did get four starts in 2013 while Dominique Easley was injured. He will compete with Stefan Charles for a reserve defensive tackle position. If Marcell Dareus is suspended for his May drug arrest, this will improve Jacobs' chances of making the team.
Kenny Guiton had success in limited action last year for Ohio State. He finished the game against San Diego State and started the next two games while Braxton Miller nursed a knee injury. During that three-game stretch, Guiton completed 76 percent of his passes and had a 12:2 TD to INT ratio. He'll be competing with Jeff Tuel for the third-string quarterback job.
Kenny Ladler is in a good position. Buffalo let Jairus Byrd walk, leaving the free safety job open for competition. Ladler led Vanderbilt in tackles the last two seasons. He had five forced fumbles and five interceptions in 2013. Ladler is a ball hawk with superb tackling skills who can defend the deep third of the field or play in the box. This sounds a lot like a guy who just signed a big contract in New Orleans.
