ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- The Buffalo Bills have selected Florida State outside linebacker Nigel Bradham with their first of two fourth-round picks in the NFL draft on Saturday.

Listed at 6-foot-2 and 241 pounds, Bradham was a three-year starter for the Seminoles. He earned team MVP honors as a senior after leading Florida State with 86 tackles including 9 1/2 tackles for a loss.

He became the first Seminoles player to lead the team in tackles for three straight seasons since Marvin Jones did that from 1990-92.

Barring a trade, Buffalo has five picks left through the final four rounds, including a second fourth-round selection at 124.

The Bills addressed several immediate needs with their first three selections, starting with taking South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore 10th overall.
