The Bills came to terms with six undrafted rookies from the 2021 NFL draft class. Here is a thumbnail sketch on each of Buffalo's newest additions.
CB Olaijah Griffin – 5-11, 176 – USC – An All-PAC 12 honorable mention at cornerback, Griffin posted his only career interception in the shortened 2020 season and also has some return game experience. He also has a famous father, rapper and record producer Warren G, who was a key figure in the rise of West Coast rap in the 90's.
CB Nick McCloud – 6-0, 193 – Notre Dame - After McCloud lined up at cornerback at N.C. State for three seasons his senior year was marred by a knee injury. After redshirting his last year in Raleigh he graduated and transferred to Notre Dame where he made 11 starts, led the Irish in pass breakups with nine and earned 3rd team All-ACC accolades. Good run support corner with speed in the mid-4.4s. Also went to the same high school as former Bills CB Stephon Gilmore in Rock Hill, SC (South Pointe).
TE Quintin Morris – 6-2, 251 – Bowling Green – Successfully made the transition from wide receiver his first two years for the Falcons to tight end, where he earned second team and then first team All-MAC honors his final two collegiate seasons when he led Bowling Green in receiving. Blessed with hands that measure almost 10 ½ inches, Morris mainly lined up detached or in the backfield.
S Tariq Thompson – 6-0, 210 – San Diego State – A 47-game starter for the Aztecs, Thompson had fantastic ball production with 35 pass breakups and 18 total turnovers, including 12 interceptions in his college career. Won All-Conference honors all four years and committed just three penalties in his college career.
OL Syrus Tuitele – 6-6, 311 – Fresno State – The cousin of Bills DE A.J. Epenesa, Tuitele started 26 games at right tackle for the Bulldogs earning second team All-Mountain West conference honors. Some NFL scouts projected the Chico, California native to guard, which is where he could line up for Buffalo.
WR Tre Walker – 5-11, 178 – San Jose State – The two-time All-Mountain West selection ranks third all-time in school history in receptions and sixth in receiving yards. In his breakout junior season, Walker averaged 116 receiving yards per game. Walker lined up outside and is known for adjusting well to the ball.
