Bills sign three draft picks
Two days ahead of the start of the team's rookie mini-camp in Orchard Park, the Buffalo Bills were able to get three of their seven draft picks to sign on the dotted line for their rookie contracts. The team announced Thursday that fourth-round cornerback Ross Cockrell, seventh-round linebacker Randell Johnson and seventh-round offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson all signed their rookie deals.
Cockrell, from Duke, headlines the trio in the earliest to sign. He had 12 interceptions over his four-year college career and will first enter the team as a special teams contributor and backup outside cornerback.
The Bills still have four players who remain unsigned from their 2014 draft class. First-round wide receiver Sammy Watkins, second-round offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, third-round linebacker Preston Brown and fifth-round guard Cyril Richardson have yet to sign their rookie contracts.
