With the No. 124 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have selected LSU cornerback Ron Brooks.

A 5'10", 190-pound athlete with blazing 4.37 speed, Brooks could never lock down more than a sub-package role in college thanks to the presence of top-level NFL talent like Patrick Peterson, Morris Claiborne and future first-round pick Tyrann Mathieu. As such, Brooks is a bit of a projection, as he doesn't have a huge body of work, but there is ample athleticism and upside with this pick.

Brooks finished his four-year career at LSU with 89 tackles, 10 pass break-ups and three interceptions. Pre-draft evaluations were mixed on Brooks, with some considering him a late-round prospect or perhaps even a priority free agent. In Buffalo - where the team has typically favored size at this position - he has the look of a potential slot cornerback, but isn't so small that he won't be able to play on the perimeter, either.

In first-round pick Stephon Gilmore of South Carolina and now Brooks, the Bills have now drafted the two cornerbacks GM Buddy Nix promised the team would draft this year.
