The Buffalo Bills had back-to-back picks late in the sixth round, and chose a pair of defensive backs, with Wisconsin cornerback Rachad Wildgoose Jr. the target of the 213th overall selection.
The 5’11” 197-lb Wildgoose entered the NFL Draft as a true junior with only two years of college football, having opted out of most of the 2020 season when he suffered a shoulder injury after two games. He has experience both as an outside cornerback and playing in the slot, and had decent production on his resume—14 passes broken up, an interception, and five tackles for loss in 26 college games.
A physical cornerback with need for experience and refinement, Wildgoose is another project player for the Bills’ roster. The team had six corners on the roster before picking Wildgoose, and he’ll have an opportunity to compete with Cam Lewis, Siran Neal, and Dane Jackson for one of the roster spots in 2021.
