Most of Buffalo’s pre-draft visits to this point have included some pretty recognizable names in the NFL draft pool this spring. On Tuesday the Bills welcomed a bit more obscure prospect in Mississippi State OT Charles Siddoway.
Siddoway (6-7, 301) is the first offensive line prospect to visit with coaches at One Bills Drive this spring. He began his college career at Cal appearing in just three games before transferring to Butte junior college. After a season with Butte, Siddoway enrolled at Mississippi State for his final two collegiate seasons.
In 2012 he earned the starting right tackle job and never left the lineup again. Siddoway was part of an offensive line that season that finished second in the SEC in sacks allowed (19). This past season Siddoway again manned the right tackle spot and finished his college career with 25 straight starts.
At the Mississippi State pro day last month, Siddoway clocked a 5.07 40 time, had 26 reps on the bench and a 28 ½-inch vertical leap.
Some NFL talent evaluators see Siddoway as a right tackle prospect at the pro level, while others believe his best fit could be inside at guard. He’s been projected as a potential day three draft selection.
