After the Bills selected Texas cornerback Aaron Williams in the second round on Friday, GM Buddy Nix said that there was a strong possibility that the team would continue to address its depleted depth in the defensive backfield. They've done it at the top of the fourth round, adding a 223-pound athlete capable, like Williams, of playing cornerback or safety.
Like Williams, Searcy could start out at cornerback and move inside if it doesn't work out. If I were Buffalo, I'd start him immediately at safety, as he's not an elite-level athlete, and will be best with the field in front of him. He is a smart, instinctual, heady player that, for now, projects as a reserve, but he has starter's upside as a strong safety (hasta luego, Donte Whitner?) or perhaps a slot corner. He'll help on special teams, too.
For the sanity of Bills fans, however, here's hoping that the Bills are now satisfied with their depth in the defensive backfield.
