2014

2013

Although he was only a part-time player as a fourth-round pick rookie in 2012, the Bills are prepared to give Bradham a full plate of responsibilities in 2013. The former Florida State star is very athletic and, no matter whether the Bills run a 4-3 or 3-4 this year, Bradham has the length and athleticism to stay on the field through all formations. With Kelvin Sheppard and Nick Barnett run out of town, it's difficult to see how Bradham could possibly fall short of three-down duties this year. He finished his rookie year with only 47 stops, but he will see his defensive snap count at least double this year, making anything short of triple digits a disappointment.

2012

Bradham is an extremely athletic linebacker who can give Buffalo an explosive blitz threat right away in certain packages. While the Bills think they might have gotten a steal in the fourth round of 2012, he has almost no chance of starting with a few more experienced linebackers ahead of him. He'll need to improve his block-shedding ability, and for now it looks like he'll also have to prove himself on special teams. But his athleticism is high and he excelled in a major conference, so he's worth keeping an eye on.
