The Bills have made their final two selections in this year’s NFL Draft.
In the sixth round, the Bills tabbed Oregon OL Mark Asper. Asper is rather versatile – he played both guard and right tackle in college. The Bills apparently also plan on trying him at center. He’s very big at 6’6, 319 and has very impressive locker room strength. Interestingly, he also recently saved a man’s life in a steakhouse using the Heimlich maneuver. Awesome. Less awesome is the fact that he’s already 26. He’ll also have to prove he can hang athletically in the NFL. He has a shot to stick thanks to his ability to backup multiple positions, however.
In the seventh and final round, Buffalo selected Western Michigan K John Potter. Potter hit 16-of-22 field goals in his senior season and connected on all 57 of his extra points. He also boomed 36 of his 85 kickoffs for touchbacks. It’s somewhat unlikely Potter beats Rian Lindell out for the kicking job in Buffalo, but it’s possible the Bills are looking for a kickoff specialist.
