Buffalo Bills select USC CB Kevon Seymour 218th overall in the 2016 NFL Draft

Kevon Syemour will continue his football career in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The Buffalo Bills have selected USC Trojans cornerback Kevon Seymour in the 6th round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Seymour was the 218th player selected in this draft. Many scouts projected him to be a late 7th round pick or an undrafted free agent but the Bills snagged him late in the 6th. Seymour dealt with repeated injuries that marred his career with the Trojans and his lack of size could cause him problems in the NFL. Seymour will join fellow USC Trojans CB Nickell Robey and Wide Receiver Robert Woods on the Bills roster.

Here is from his scouting report on

"BOTTOM LINE Seymour's lost playing time coupled with his injury issues do not bode well for his draft standing, but he's got decent size and quality speed and athleticism doesn't appear to be a problem. Seymour needs to prove he can be a more physical tackler and he might be better suited playing for a defense that stresses man­-off coverage."
