With the 105th selection in the forth round Buffalo selects, Duke Williams, S, Nevada.

Love that we are taking risks. Analysts are saying he's a physical player that would have went earlier if it weren't for off the field issues.

Any idea what his off field issues are?

He was my favorite safety in the entire draft. I hate all of you.

ESPN said this kid has potential to be a starter at some point.

Seems like someone who will be a beast on special teams. Anyone know his 40 time? Seemed very explosive.

Not real familiar with this kid. From his highlights it seems he is similar to Shamarko Thomas. Plays like a missle, big hitter, etc. Interesting that they took him over Thomas with the Marrone connection.

4.52 is sketchy. He ran 4.41 on his first attempt (unofficial) at the combine and he's a former track athlete.
5'11 203
Very good vs the run. Led the NCAA in touchdown saving tackles. A true "safety" in that regard.
He spent a lot of time covering slot wr's and even tho he isn't a ball hawk, he doesn't allow easy completions. When he's playing center field he can make plays on the ball, but he has stone hands and will drop easy picks.
His bread and butter is run D, but he will not hurt you in zone coverage and will surprise you with his man coverage abilities against TE's coming across the middle.
He can also hit the daylights out of you.
His character concerns are a thing of the past.
I think he'll be a fan favorite by the end of your preseason. Hard not to like people who play safety the way he does.
He's also going to sucked up by play action fakes on occasion, but so does every safety in the NFL.
