2011 NFL Draft: Possible Late-Round Gems for the Buffalo Bills

The possibilities for the Buffalo Bills with the number three pick in the 2011 NFL Draft are pretty well known by now. Will it be Cam Newton, Von Miller, Patrick Peterson or someone else entirely? It's an interesting question, but it won't be the subject of this article.

What I will be doing is detailing some of the possible late-round selections for Buffalo. Late rounders are very important when building a team. They fill out the depth chart and every once in a while you identify a gem that can start for years. Unlike first-round selections, Buffalo has actually been fairly successful doing this in later rounds.

For the purposes of this article, I am defining a late round selection as fourth-round or later. I won't be including any of the prospects I highlighted in my 7 Round Buffalo Bills Mock Draft. Each of the players on this list have their flaws. If they didn't, they would be first-rounders. Even though I like all these players, I will try to give an honest evaluation of them. And since opinions on late-round guys vary so widely, I would be very happy if just one of the guys on this list was drafted by the Bills.
