For an NCAA football player, it can be pretty upsetting not to hear your name called in the NFL Draft. However, for those who were not among the 256 names called over the last three days, the post-draft frenzy to find a team can be just as exhilarating.
The Buffalo Bills and 31 other NFL teams are hard at work, looking to add quality rookie talent that went undrafted. Below, we have a running list of players who are rumored to be heading to Buffalo. All UDFA announcements are considered to be rumors until announced by the team, as players often change their minds as they receive more offers.
The Bills came into the draft with many needs, and while they addressed nearly all of them via their picks, they still have some areas that could use depth. Could they look to add a wide receiver, finding lightning in a bottle for the second consecutive year after UDFA Robert Foster panned out so well last year? The team may also look to add additional depth at corner and in the trenches. Perhaps they will even look for a camp arm at quarterback, as well.
We’ll update the list as we hear about more players, but you can help us out by posting in the comments below.

So some of the sting of not being drafted is softened by getting to stay home and to compete for the Bills’ No. 2 QB job.

Rookie Minicamp Invites:
Jedidiah Davis, OLB, Clemson
Headed to the @buffalobills mini camp! God is so Good‼️‼️— JDJr Davis (@JedidiahDavis33) April 28, 2019
Mike Smith, LB, Miami Hurricanes
Mike Smith changed his mind this morning because Bills have only two middle LBs and former Canes standout/Bills player personnel director Dan Morgan convinced him that Bills really like him. It will be tryout for Bills, as it would have been for Dolphins. https://t.co/2qXgGO4Y5U— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) April 28, 2019
