Kevon Seymour makes favorable impression on Bills coaches

PITTSFORD -- Kevon Seymour grabbed the attention of Sean McDermott early in the offseason.

Through the first five days of training camp practices at St. John Fisher College, the Buffalo Bills' second-year cornerback isn't letting go.

"Versatility, I would say, is probably the key," McDermott said Tuesday. "He plays inside and also plays outside. There (are) not a lot of corners in this league that bring that to the table.

"He’s done a nice job for us, and again, a young player that is developing and trying to build off of what he did last year and the foundation he built last year. (We’re) encouraged by that."

First-round draft pick Tre'Davious White promptly grabbed the starting spot vacated by the free-agency departure of Stephon Gilmore. But Seymour is making himself a valuable part of the secondary, especially as a nickel back.

McDermott is especially impressed with Seymour's grasp of the defense and his multiple roles.

"You saw some of that last year and the mental part of the game, he seems to have a pretty good handle on in terms of that inside position and the outside," the coach said. "He’s got strength, he’s got speed, he does a nice job."
