Buffalo Bills Get Ronald Darby With Their First Selection of the 2015 NFL Draft

Florida State has brought several different players into the NFL over the course of the past few seasons. Ronald Darby would have gone into practice during the Championship 2013 season against players like Kelvin Benjamin, and now as a member of the Buffalo Bills it will be likely to see him covering gentleman like fellow rookies DeVante Parker and Devin Smith taken within his division.

Ronald Darby is a fast young cornerback. He measures in at 5'11" and 193 pounds. He ran the 40 yard dash in 4.38 seconds at the combine. Despite the fact that he is a little bit shorter, he does have a 41.5 inch vertical leap. His NFL Draft profile states that "In 2014, selected third-team All-ACC, allowing just 41.9 percent of passes thrown his way to be completed." That is an absurdly low number, and Rex Ryan loves his cornerbacks, so it will be interesting to see just how well Darby can do behind the 3-4 Ryan defense with the strength of their defensive line and linebackers.

Ronald Darby will not face his former teammate Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season, but speaking of Kelvin Benjamin, they will meet up when the Bills and Panthers face each other on August 14, 2015 as the pre-season opener for Rex Ryan's Buffalo Bills.
