The Bills decide to go back to the safety position and have drafted safety Jonathan Meeks with their 5th Round pick. Meeks came to Clemson from the same town as last year’s #1 pick Stephon Gilmore and was a two sport star both in football and basketball.
Meeks very similar to Duke Williams is a physical in the box safety who is tackles well and is a fit in the Pettine system as a SS. Meeks has nice size at 6’1, 210 lbs and runs pretty well (4.55 40). Meeks was used in a rotation with Rashard Hall and Xavier Brewer so he could fit in well working with Bryan Scott and Duke Williams rotating in and out.
I honestly don’t understand why he was the pick here, I think he could of been available after the draft. Clemson is known for recruiting athletes so maybe he can bloom as he moves into the pros.
