The Buffalo Bills have signed cornerback Ronald Darby, their second-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, to a four-year rookie contract, the team announced on Tuesday afternoon. Darby's deal is worth a total of $4.6 million, per multiple reports.

Coupled with yesterday's signing of sixth-round pick Tony Steward, plus four more signings previously disclosed last week, the Bills' entire six-man draft class is now under contract.
The 21-year-old Darby was the Bills' top overall choice in this year's selection meeting, a junior entrant out of Florida State. An experienced player with top-notch athleticism, Darby is expected to sit behind the team's bevy of experienced cornerbacks in 2015 while learning the ropes (although he could push Nickell Robey for nickel reps). He should be in line for a much larger role in 2016, with the Bills having some big fiscal decisions to make regarding Stephon Gilmore, Leodis McKelvin, and Corey Graham at that juncture.
