Buffalo Bills sign sixth round pick Kevon Seymour

The Buffalo Bills signed the first player from their draft class on Wednesday.

Former USC CB Kevon Seymour was the last player selected by the Buffalo Bills in the 2016 NFL draft. The 218th overall pick became the first Bills selection to sign their rookie contract. The Bills announced the move on their Twitter:

Scout's USCFootball.com said the following on Seymour after he was selected by the Bills:

Before being injured, Seymour had been a two-year starter and was only getting better. He had 49 tackles as a junior with an interception, but he made his impact with 13 breakups and 14 pass deflections. As a sophomore, he had 48 tackles, including two for loss, an interception, six breakups and seven pass deflections. The speedy Seymour has great burst, but that was sapped by the knee injury. If fully recovered, Seymour could be a steal that is capable of getting down the field to cover kicks on special teams.

Just like at USC, Seymour will have an opportunity to learn from Nickell Robey while having to cover Robert Woods across the line.

Seymour ran a 4.39 40-yard dash and recorded 20 passes defensed, 126 total tackles, and three interceptions in his career with the Trojans.

The terms of Seymour's contract were not released.
