Today the Bills will host three more collegiate players set and ready to enter the draft in less than 40 days.

The Bills will play host to DB Bradley Roby, RB Lache Seastrunk, and LB Ryan Shazier.

Roby was a three year starter out of Ohio State.  He finished third in interception yards in school history with 226.  Roby is currently projected to be a late first early second round pick in this years draft.  Roby has good speed, clocking a 4.39 in the 40.  He stands at 5″11, so a little shorter than most corner backs in the league, but projects to be a good nickle corner in the league due to the fact that larger wide-outs could box him out of the play.  Roby has confidence that he can be a shutdown corner in this league.

"“I think that’s something I bring to the table to any team and I plan to show that to whatever team drafts me,” said Roby.– buffalobills.com"

CBS Sports has Roby going as high as 22nd to the Eagles and as low as 24th to the Bengals.

Lache Seastrunk is coming out of Baylor.  After transferring from Oregon and sitting out the 2011 season, Seastrunk blew the Big 12 up winning newcomer of the year and averaging just short of 8 yards per carry.  He finished with just over 1000 yards rushing on 131 carries and 8 touchdowns.  This past year was no different.  He posted an impressive 7.44 yards per carry on 158 carries and collected 1177 yards rushing with 11 touchdowns, all while missing two games with a groin injury.

Seastrunk is not the quickest guy in the bunch running a 4.51 40.  He is projected by CBS Sports has Seastrunk going in the 3-4 round while Chris Brown from BuffaloBills.com reports him in the 2-3 round.

Ryan Shazier is another player coming out of the Ohio State.  He is projected to go in the late first to early second round as his teammate above is.  Shazier is 6’2 weighing 237#.  At the Ohio State Pro Day he ran, what was his first 40 yard dash.  He also strained his hamstring in the process but was still able to provide a sub 4.4 time on most of the watches there.

Last year Shazier finished with 101 tackles, which placed him in 2nd place in the nation for solo tackles and he also finished in 3rd place overall for tackles for a loss with 22.5.  He has been compared to Lavonte David.

"“I’m a run and hit linebacker. I can also go inside and cover good tight ends,” he said. “My speed is what I’m known for, but I can also play inside ‘backer and do everything they want me to do. I feel I’m a very versatile player. Whatever the coaches want.”– buffalobills.com"
