After having no first-round pick on Thursday, the Buffalo Bills added 17 rookies to their roster between Friday and Saturday. Only time will tell if those additions make the Bills a better team for the 2015 season, but nonetheless, the Bills now have a better idea of what their roster will look like for the upcoming year, and at what positions they will have the toughest competition for roster spots.

The Bills made two draft picks on Day 2 of the draft, then after making four picks on Day 3, have signed 13 undrafted free agents. For analysis on all of the Bills’ new talent, check out the links below.

Ronald Darby, CB, Florida State (Round 2, No. 50 Overall Pick)

Two trends that have held true for the Buffalo Bills in recent years are that they typically draft players who made pre-draft visits to One Bills Drive and that they love to acquire new running backs. Taking both of those trends into consideration, it should come as no surprise that the Bills select Florida State running back Karlos Williams with their fifth-round draft selection, No. 155 overall.

I cautioned last week that college football Week 3 was when we could see some letdowns.
