Safety Kelvin Fisher Jr. Made Pre-Draft Visit To the Bills
Safety Kelvin Fisher Jr. made pre-draft visit to the Bills. The UTEP safety is 5’10” and 197 pounds according to NFLDraftScout.com. The news was reported by Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle in the below tweet. Fisher transferred from Arkansas to UTEP where he played for the past two seasons.
His father, Kelvin Fisher, is the director of college scouting for the Buffalo Bills according to the team’s website. One has to wonder whether nepotism came into play here as there is a high likelihood that Kelvin Fisher Jr. could go undrafted.

On the other hand, sometimes it makes sense to meet with these type of “fringe” players because diamonds in the rough can be found and you need to find out more information on these players who are not as highly touted and who have less information publicly available about them.
If he does go undrafted he is a good enough prospect where he will probably be signed as an undrafted free agent.
He is known as a great communicator in the secondary. It was widely publicized that the Bills had communication issues on defense last year. It was because they were missing leaders Kyle Williams and Aaron Williams and Preston Brown was not able to step up as a vocal leader at linebacker. Manny Lawson had to fulfill those duties for the team.
Even though both of the Williams are coming back from injuries this season, Kyle is getting older and Aaron has health concerns which could lead to a shortened career. The Bills could use more players on their defense who are vocal leaders like the safety from UTEP.
Adding Kelvin Fisher Jr. to the roster whether it’s with their last pick in the 6th round or as an undrafted free agent could be a good move for some of the intangibles that he could bring to the team and the familiarity he would have with his father being part of the organization.
