Free Agent Signings Added Monday, April 30
NEW YORK -- LSU's Ron Brooks, who impressed many with his times and measurements at the NFL Combine in February, was the selected by the Buffalo Bills in the fourth round of the NFL Draft on Saturday.
He was the 124th overall pick and the 29th of the round. Brooks was LSU's third defensive back to be drafted in 2012.
Brooks, a 5-10, 190-pounder from Irving, Texas, was a four-year letterwinner at LSU after recording 90 tackles in 53 games with three interceptions. He also played a key role in the Tigers kickoff returns and special teams.
He joins teammates Morris Claiborne (6th overall, Dallas Cowboys), Michael Brockers (14th, St. Louis Rams), Rueben Randle (63rd, NY Giants) and Brandon Taylor (73rd, San Diego Chargers) who were selected during the first three rounds on Thursday and Friday.
