Bills Go Safety in 4th and 5th Rounds; Kicker in the 6th

The Bills are scheduled to pick four times on Saturday, once in each round. Buffalo used its fourth-round selection, 105 overall, on Nevada S Duke Williams.

Williams recorded four interceptions over four seasons at Nevada and was named to the All-Mountain West second team in 2012. He racked up 105 tackles, forced three fumbles and picked off one pass last season for the Wolf Pack.
Several off-the-field incidents marred Williams' college career including an arrest for underage possession of alcohol in 2009. Williams was also arrested in 2011 for driving with a suspended license and without insurance following a car accident.

With their 5th-round selection, the Bills selected S Jonathan Meeks out of Clemson.  Meeks was not invited to the NFL Combine.  His senior season yielded 62 tackles, 2 interceptions, and 5 pass breakups.  He started all 13 games.  He was selected to the ACC's honorable mention list.  The Buffalo Bills invited Meeks for one of their pre-draft visits. 

The Bill selected a kicker with their 6th-round selection, picking Florida State's Dustin Hopkins with the 177th overall pick.  Hopkins kicked all four years at Florida State, with his percentage getting better every year, finishing his senior year with 83.3% of his field goals made.  He made 5/6 fields goals from 50+ yards. 

Finally, the Bills selected a tight end with their 7th round selection, taking Chris Gragg from Arknansas.  An athletic freak, the 6'4", 244 lb. Gragg ran a 4.5 40-yard-dash and a 37.5 vertical.  He had 22 receptions for 289 yards with 3 TDs in his senior season.
