RB Anthony Allen - Georgia Tech [6-1, 228, 4.56]
Allen has the bulk of a power halfback and has fair speed to complement. In four seasons he recorded 546 attempts for 3,036 yards and 33 TDs. A strong runner, Allen will need to work on his blocking and catching.
RB Darren Evans - Virginia Tech [6-0, 227, 4.56]
Complementing and even out-rushed Ryan Williams in a season, Evans rushed 438 times for 2,119 yards and 22 TDs. Strong blocker and a physical runner, Williams biggest concern is a 2009 ACL tear that has not allowed him to attain his top speed.
FB Anthony Sherman - Connecticut [5-10, 242, 4.74]
A good blocker with some pass catching ability, Sherman recorded 48 receptions for 477 yards and 1 TD in four years.
OT Matt Murphy - UNLV [6-4, 304, 5.20]
A big guy with experience at both tackle positions. Murphy seems to be a strictly depth player the roster if the Bills draft him.
DL Brandon Bair - Oregon [6-6, 276, 4.92]
In his last two years of school Bair recorded 87 tackles and 5 sacks. He has the frame to grow into 3-4 DE for depth purposes and has good initial punches but he is already 26.
OLB Wayne Daniels - TCU [6-0, 260, 5.03]
A fair 4-3 DE that could go to the outside, Daniels lacks the ability to shred blocks but is a great tackler with 101 tackles and 13 sacks.
OLB Thomas Keiser - Stanford [6-3, 261, 4.87]
A good outside linebacker, Keiser improved over time but will need better conditioning to transit to the NFL. Still 108 tackles and 20 sacks are not too shabby
ILB Nick Bellore - Central Michigan [6-1, 245, 4.84]
Another solid inside linebacker prospect from a little school, Bellore won't wow you with his physical attributes, but has good instincts. As evidence he made 471 tackles, 5 sacks, 5 forced fumbles and 5 picks in 4 yours.
CB Byron Maxwell - Clemson [6-0, 202, 4.43]
A big physical corner, Maxwell has good speed and all around play but needs fine tuning. In four years he recorded 152 tackles 6 forced fumbles and 4 interceptions.
CB Kevin Rutland - Missouri [6-0, 190, 4.58]
An average size corner, Rutland has good raw skills and smarts for that position and is also fairly quick but needs to get better in run support. He made 117 tackles 6 interceptions (and four sacks in his senior year)
