The 2016 NFL draft is 58 days away. Who have the Buffalo Bills drafted at pick 58?
Buffalo has drafted two players at pick 58. Here’s a look at the former Bills players.
Travis Henry, RB, Tennessee (2001)
Henry only spent four seasons with the Bills, but he was very productive for Buffalo. The running back rushed for 3,849 yards and 27 touchdowns in 54 games played (48 starts) with the Bills. Henry had back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons in 2002-2003 and also scored 23 rushing touchdowns between those two seasons. Henry was named to the 2002 Pro Bowl with the Bills.
After suffering an injury in 2004, Henry lost his starting job to Willis McGahee. He demanded a trade from Buffalo and was sent to the Tennessee Titans for a third round pick. The running back is fifth all-time in career rushing yards with the Bills.
Henry spent two seasons with the Titans and one year with the Broncos. His time in Denver only lasted one season after he tested positive for marijuana. The running back was suspended for a season. Henry was reinstated in 2012 after serving a three-year prison term for financing a cocaine trafficking operation, but was never signed to another NFL roster.
Travares Tillman, DB, Georgia Tech (2000)
Tillman spent seven seasons in the NFL, but only lasted two years with Buffalo. Tillman played in 28 games with Buffalo, starting 10, and recorded 54 total tackles, one interception, four passes defensed, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery.
After sitting out the 2002 season, Tillman’s next stop in the NFL was with the Houston Texans. Tillman did not record any stats in Houston and was released a few weeks into the 2003 season. The Carolina Panthers added Tillman after his release. He spent two seasons in Carolina, but only recorded 11 tackles in 13 games.
Tillman found another home in 2005 with the Miami Dolphins and played the best football of his professional career. His best season came in his first year with Miami where he played in 16 games, starting 10, and recorded 59 total tackles, three interceptions, and two passes defensed. The following season, Tillman started in seven games with Miami and in 14 total games he had 45 total tackles, four passes defensed, and one forced fumble. Tillman’s final season in 2007 saw him record 11 total tackles and three passes defensed in three games.
Tillman is currently the head track and field coach at the Calvary Day School.
