Bills Reportedly Interested In Miami CB DeMarcus Van Dyke

In an interview with Evan Silva at Pro Football Talk, Miami (FL) cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke - expected to be a mid-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft - tells Silva that the Buffalo Bills have shown serious interest in him.

Van Dyke, a 6'1", 185-pound speedster that is raw as a defender, but one of the fastest athletes available this year, was on the South team at the 2011 Senior Bowl coached by Chan Gailey and the Bills' coaching staff. In that game, Van Dyke recorded two pass break-ups and four tackles. In four seasons with the Hurricanes, he accumulated 79 tackles, 10 pass break-ups and three interceptions.

Buffalo, which could lose starter Drayton Florence at cornerback via free agency, will likely do much more than it did a year ago to address its cornerback depth. Van Dyke - expected to produce one of the fastest 40-yard dash times this weekend, as he was a track star at Miami - has solid upside due to his speed and athleticism.

Van Dyke also mentioned the Dallas Cowboys as a team that has shown serious interest in him.
