Buffalo Bills

Five Mountaineers drafted, but David Sills surprisingly not among them

MORGANTOWN, W. Va. — As a junior, Biletnikoff Award voters deemed West Virginia’s David Sills one of the three best receivers in the United States.

Sills, who ranks second in WVU history with 35 touchdown catches, resorted to signing with the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent.

He was the youngest player to be offered a Division I scholarship when USC’s Lane Kiffin recruited him as a 13-year-old quarterback.

Sills eventually signed with West Virginia and was moved to wide receiver in training camp.

Wanting to give quarterback another try, he transferred to El Camino (Calif.) Community College for a year before ditching that plan and returning to West Virginia as a wide receiver.

Safety Toyous Avery will go to rookie mini-camp with the Seattle Seahawks, joining teammate Gary Jennings.
