Reggie Corner Akron Buffalo Bill 4th round

by Steve

Evident the Bills are hedging their bet. And they feel like whatever they do in the first round they have to duplicate in the 4th round ala 2007. He is old, 24, and is small 5'7ish but he is a ball hawk with 7 picks last year. Too bad he played in the MAC. Maybe he made some sick tackles om James Starks, who knows.
