CB Corner is Bills' Fourth Round Selection

With the one hundred-fourteenth overall selection in the 2008 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have selected Akron cornerback Reggie Corner.

Regarded by NFL Draft Countdown as a "poor man's Nathan Vashar", the 5'9", 180-pound Corner recorded 15 career interceptions as a four-year starter for the Zips, including seven in his senior season.  A player who is constantly around the ball, Corner is an aggressive, solidly built player that can make plays.

Corner's best chance at succeeding at the NFL level is as a slot cornerback in a zone defense.  Corner is tough enough to reroute receivers in the middle of a zone defense, and his solid recognition skills could eventually make him a playmaker from that position.  His lack of height, however, will make it difficult for him to match up with taller receivers on the outside.  Corner is a solid tackler, but he's not regarded as tough in run support.

Clearly, with the Bills already employing first-round pick CB Leodis McKelvin - as well as four other cornerbacks that have starting experience in Buffalo - Corner comes into town as a depth player with tons of special teams potential.  He will likely compete for a "starting" role as one of the team's punt coverage gunners, and although his upside is not tremendous, he has the room to grow into a solid situational player in Buffalo's Cover 2 defense.

And hey... it's hard to go wrong drafting a corner named Corner.  Right?

This is your open thread for the Corner pick as well as the picks leading up to Buffalo's next selection, #132 overall.
