Buffalo, NY (WKBW.com) The Bills kicked off the final day of the 2010 draft by selecting UConn wide receiver Marcus Easley in the fourth round. The Bills grabbed Easley with the 107th overall pick.



A former walk-on for the Huskies, the 6'2 Easley had a breakout senior season. He had 893 yards and 8 touchdowns on 48 catches in his final 8 games. Prior to that he did not have a huge body of work as a receiver. He had only five catches in his first 26 games at UConn, and played mostly special teams for his first two seasons.



The Bills had Easley clocked with 4.40 speed at the combine, and believe he can be productive at the NFL level. "As a player he is big, fast and strong", said Bills area scout Tom Roth. "He is good underneath on drags, and vertically. He has the strength to break tackles", said Roth.



The Bills have 5 picks remaining in today's final day of the draft.
