Due to the likelihood that Jordan Poyer has already played his last snap as a player on the Buffalo Bills’ roster, it’s possible the Bills look to better their defensive backfield in the draft.

And one guy who should be on the Bills’ radar is an absolute stud in Jammie Robinson from Florida State.

The Buffalo Bills should consider drafting safety Jammie Robinson out of Florida State

He’s not a guy who will be in contention for being drafted with the No. 1 overall pick, but he’s a guy who plays the safety position incredibly well.

While his pass coverage doesn’t cover the price of admission, Robinson plays the game with a high motor and high physicality.

And again, this isn’t a player who is going in the first round. He’s a bit more raw in terms of if he can come into the league and start day one.

Though that’s the case, he’s worthy of a later draft pick on a team who might be losing their All-Pro safety in Jordan Poyer this off season.

Will he be immediately better than Poyer if drafted? No, of course not. However, later in the draft, the focal point isn’t to get starters.

Per PFF, Robinson has second-to-third-round draft value, and his abilities on the football field show that and some.

With the NFL Combine still yet to commence, Robinson could help his draft stock with a good 40-yard dash time, as well as performing well in the change-of-direction sections.

One of the more notable parts of Jammie Robinson’s time in college is his amount of snaps.

Having a player who’s played a lot of meaningful snaps is important when scouting, as it shows whether a player can play the way they show on film with consistency.

Throughout Robinson’s college career, he has 2,230 snaps under his belt, which should help his draft journey.

And for a team like the Buffalo Bills who will lose some consistency if Jordan Poyer does end up leaving, adding a Jammie Robinson into their life could be crucial.
