NFL Draft pick signings are little more than a formality in the post-2011 CBA world, but those of us that followed the league on a micro level prior to the 2011 season still feel a sense of mental relief when the Buffalo Bills announce their draft pick signings, anyway.

Sixth-round pick Nick O'Leary, a tight end out of Florida State, and seventh-round pick Dezmin Lewis, a wide receiver out of Central Arkansas, are both officially under contract with the Bills as of today, reports Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News.

O'Leary is expected to make a serious push for playing time at tight end behind starter Charles Clay as a rookie, while Lewis - the tallest receiver on the roster at just under 6'4", and a player that many in the draft community are high on - will look to beat out the likes of Chris Hogan and Marquise Goodwin for a spot on the 53-man roster this summer.

The two signings leave the Bills with four draft picks left to be signed: cornerback Ronald Darby (second round), guard John Miller (third round), running back Karlos Williams (fifth round), and linebacker Tony Steward (sixth round).
