DE Dion Jordan (1st Round Pick, 3rd overall). Grade: C

Jordan made a handful of tackles in his 15 defensive plays, but most of them occured a few yards downfield. Not much positive impact from the rookie linebacker in very limited action.

Season GPA: 2.48 Team Rank: 2nd

CB Jamar Taylor (2nd Round Pick, 54th overall). Grade: I (Incomplete)

Taylor was active, but didn't appear to get on the field on defense or special teams.

Season GPA: 1.57 Team Rank: 9th

OL Dallas Thomas (3rd Round Pick, 77th overall). Grade: I (Incomplete)

Nothing for Thomas, either

Season GPA: 2.00 Team Rank: 4th

CB Will Davis (3rd Round Pick, 93rd overall). Grade: C-

Davis was on the field for just one running play, where he had a shot at making the tackle on the running back from his cornerback spot but he fell off Fred Jackson's shoulder as if he was a Buffalo afternoon raindrop.

Season GPA: 1.47 Team Rank: 8th

LB Jelani Jenkins (4th Round Pick, 104th overall). Grade: C

Jenkins' pass coverage services were not needed as much against the run-heavy Bills. He played five snaps and recorded one tackle.

Season GPA: 1.87 Team Rank: 7th

Dion Sims (4th Round Pick, 106th overall). Grade: C

Sims served his usual inline blocking role, and was not targeted in the passing game. No impact.

Season GPA: 1.94 Team Rank: 6th

RB Mike Gillislee (5th Round Pick, 164th overall). Grade: I (Incomplete)

Gillislee was inactive as both Thomas and Miller were healthy.

Season GPA: 2.43 Team Rank: 3rd

K Caleb Sturgis (5th Round Pick, 166th overall). Grade: C

The rookie didn't get an opportunity to kick for any points on a day that the guy he replaced, Bills kicker Dan Carpenter, nailed 4-of-4 field goal attempts. Sturgis did send his only kickoff for a touchback.

Season GPA: 3.03 Team Rank: 1st

DB Don Jones (7th Round Pick, 250th overall). Grade: C

Jones was able to get into position to make plays on the punt coverage unit, but wasn't able to finish them off. Not a bad day, but could have been better.

Season GPA: 1.96 Team Rank: 5th
