The Buffalo Bills have announced they've signed their second of their second round picks in the 2017 NFL Draft, Dion Dawkins, to his rookie contract. 

The offensive lineman out of Temple was drafted 63rd overall by the Bills. Buffalo traded back into the second round to grab Dawkins. They traded the 75th pick, 149th pick, and the 156th pick to the Atlanta Falcons for 63. 

Dawkins was a second-team All-ACC player at Temple in 2015, and earned first-team honors in 2016. Dawkins is regarded as a strong run-blocking offensive lineman with a 35-inch arm length. He is 6' 4", 314-pounds.

The only Bills draft pick yet to sign his rookie deal is fifth round quarterback, Nathan Peterman.
