Buffalo Bills Invite Colby Way to Rookie Camp

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

A seventh graduating senior will have a crack at the NFL. A day after Jasen Carlson locked down a rookie mini-camp tryout with the Chicago Bears his teammate Colby Way has secured a spot with the Buffalo Bills

Colby Way played on the opposite side of the defense from Khalil Mack. As Buffalo's defensive end in a hybrid 3-4 defense Way was often tasked with taking on the interior double teams, he played a big mans position with the agility of a smaller player.

His long arms allowed him to knock down balls and disrupt passing lanes, and he was able to sack the QB 15 times in the past 3 years.

Outside of his freshman year he was putting up better numbers than Kent's Roosevelt Nix but did not generally get the recognition of Nix because he was on a defense with Mack and Steven Means.

He will be joining Derek Brim who signed with the Bills as an free agent yesterday.
