Player Profile:Keith Pough and the Buffalo Bills


Earlier this week the Buffalo Bills supplemented their draft and brought in 16 undrafted free agents.  By this they have added to their depth as well as provided some competition to some if not all of the players currently on the roster.

Pough had a draft rating of a 70.5.  Pough is 6’2″ 239 lbs.  He played WR at 5’8″ for his first two years of high school and then was moved to LB and was an all-state LB his senior year.

Pough is compared to Michael Boley.  One of his weaknesses is that he struggles to get off of blocks to make plays.  Most of his plays come when he is unblocked.  His strengths include quickness to chase down plays as well as quarterbacks.  He is also not afraid to throw his body into the mix to take up a blocker and plug a hole.

The NFL’s take on Pough is this…

Pough is a tackles-for-loss machine, using his length and speed to chase ballcarriers from behind, as well as attitude to attack them in the hole. His tall, lean build and movement skills could make him a mid-round pick for teams looking for a coverage ‘backer or potential blitzing threat on the weak or strong sides of the formation.

Adding depth at the LB position is something the Bills need.  This guy looks to be a good fit for a quick style defensive which is exactly what the Buffalo Bills usually are playing towards no matter who the coaching staff is.
