2016 NFL Draft results: Kevon Seymour to Buffalo Bills at No. 218 overall

New, comments

Seymour is a 5'11", 186-pound corner with 4.39-second 40-yard dash speed

With the No. 218 overall pick in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have selected USC cornerback Kevon Seymour.

A three-year contributor in the Trojans' defensive backfield, Seymour, a senior entrant in the draft, finished his USC career with 127 tackles, three interceptions, 18 defended passes, and a sack. He possesses more than enough athleticism to interest the Bills this late in the draft, coming in at a half-inch shy of 6'0" and 186 pounds, with 4.39-second 40-yard dash speed (with a 1.55-second 10-yard split), a 10'4" broad jump, and a 35-inch vertical jump.

The Bills spent part of their free agency period bolstering their depth at cornerback, adding Corey White and Sterling Moore to Mario Butler behind the top three players on their depth chart, but Seymour gives the team excellent athleticism and upside in their final pick of the 2016 NFL Draft.
