The Bills may not have added a fullback during the draft, but they did add an interesting one on sunday evening.
I will give some of the highlights:
5'9 242 pounds with a 470 pound bench press.
He was one of 4 team captains. Considering the fact he went to West Point, that is VERY impressive.
He tore ligaments in his knee during his senior year of high school, but finished the season anyways. His injuries scared off recruiters. He went on to suffer several injuries at Army as well, but never missed a game.
"Plays with fiery emotion and is the team's hardest worker in the training room."
"Compares To: MIKE KARNEY-New Orleans...While West Virginia's Owen Schmitt is regarded as the draft's top fullback, Viti can rival the Mountaineer as the best blocker in this draft. Viti has brute strength that made one scout describe his physique as "having muscles coming out of his muscles."
I am definately excited the Bills signed Viti and I cannot wait until training camp to see how he looks. Considering his only competition at FB is Darian Barnes and Jonathon Evans, Viti has an outside shot to make the team. He has a good chance to wind up on the practice squad.
Do we know much else about any of the other players the Bills have signed so far?
