News: Bills CB Justin Rogers left practice with an ankle injury, coach Chan Gailey said. "They took him in to make sure it was all right, and it wasn't anything bad," Gailey said. "They think he's just fine." Rogers was a seventh-round pick of the team in April's NFL Draft.
Analysis: Rogers, the University of Richmond product, is expected to compete for playing time in a best-case scenario this season. Even if he makes the team, Fantasy owners should not consider him to be an option in Fantasy play. Ignore Rogers on Draft Day.
News: Don't think for a second that the Buffalo Bills didn't know where they need improvement as they drafted seven players in the NFL draft. Alabama DT Marcell Dareus was their first-round pick, giving them a massive presence along their defensive line. From there they took Texas CB Aaron Williams (Round 2), LSU LB Kelvin Sheppard (Round 3), UNC safety Da'Norris Searcy (Round 4), Mississippi State LB Chris White (Round 6), Richmond CB Justin Rogers (Round 7) and Bethel DT Michael Jasper (Round 7). Williams and Sheppard could potentially join Dareus as first-year starters for Buffalo.
Analysis: Of these defenders, Williams and Sheppard have the potential to work in a decent capacity with the Bills defense this year, and Norris has some long-term appeal. Sheppard is worth a late-round flier in deeper seasonal drafts and dynasty/keeper leagues. Sheppard, Williams and Searcy are worth taking in rookie-only drafts (Sheppard ahead of Williams and Searcy). None of the other defenders are worth Fantasy consideration.
