Penn State CB Amani Oruwariye to visit Buffalo Bills before NFL Draft

New, comments

This is the first cornerback to be connected to the Bills on a visit.

Penn State cornerback Amani Oruwariye has set up pre-draft visits with at least four teams including the Buffalo Bills. Speaking with SiriusXM NFL radio, the cornerback announced a handful of northeast teams had extended him an invitation: the Bills, New York Giants, New York Jets, and Philadelphia Eagles.

Oruwariye has played in 48 games, but became a starter for the first time in his redshirt senior season, when he started 13. In 2018, Oruwariye had 40 solo tackles and 11 assisted tackles, forced a fumble, and intercepted three passes while defending 12. His breakout season came as a reserve the previous year, when he notched four interceptions and eight passes defended.

An exceptional combination of size and speed, Oruwariye measured at 6’2” and 205 pounds at the NFL Combine. He also ran a 4.47 forty-yard dash, had 17 bench press reps, a 6.82 three cone drill, a 4.16 short shuttle, a 36.5” vertical, and a 120” broad jump.

The Buffalo Bills have established starter Tre’Davious White on one side of the field, but are set to run a platoon of Levi Wallace, Taron Johnson, and newly-signed Kevin Johnson outside of that. Oruwariye might be the first indication that the Bills aren’t done addressing the roster’s position group.
