Bills selected Arkansas TE Chris Gragg with the No. 222 overall pick.
Gragg (6-foot-2 3/4, 244) caught 72 passes for 1,003 yards (13.9 YPR) and seven touchdowns in four seasons with the Razorbacks. He was injury prone and underutilized in the Petrino offenses, although Gragg seemed to be coming on with a 41/518/2 line as a junior before knee and hip injuries cost him seven games as a senior. Gragg rehabbed his stock at the Combine by leading all tight ends in the forty (4.50), vertical (37.5"), and broad jump (10-foot-5). Gragg isn't going to block anyone, but obviously has NFL-caliber athleticism. The Bills continue to add speed on offense, and Gragg can be a movable receiving piece. Sat, Apr 27, 2013 06:15:00 PM

Arkansas TE Chris Gragg led the position with an official 4.50 forty at the NFL Combine.

Gragg added a 1.53 10 yard split. The senior had a difficult final year due to lingering knee and hip issues, but when available he can be moved around the formation as a versatile receiving target. A mid-third day selection is a safe bet for Gragg.

Gragg has only played in three full games this season due to the bone bruise. "The thing you don't want to do is put him in there before he's ready to protect himself, you know what I mean, on a half a leg and then re-injure it," Smith said. "I'm not totally optimistic on him."

Gragg has missed the last three game with a bone bruise.

Gragg missed last weekend's game against Texas A&M, which was a significant loss to senior quarterback Tyler Wilson, who relies on the tight end for crossing routes and as a safety valve. As a move tight end or H-back, Gragg certainly has NFL talent, but his struggling college team needs him back as soon as possible.

ESPN's SEC blog considers Arkansas senior Chris Gragg the conference's top TE.

Standing at 6'2/236 pounds, Gragg is more receiver than blocker while offering the speed to size ratio that creates mismatches versus defenders. Arkansas lost three receivers to the 2012 Draft, so Gragg's targets could see a big increase after posting 41 catches for 518 yards and two touchdowns in 2011. Auburn senior Phil Lutzenkirchen and Florida junior Jordan Reed round out the top-three.

With D.J. Williams dealing with a shoulder injury, tight end Chris Gragg is taking advantage of the extra reps he has been getting. Head coach Bobby Petrino had only good things to say about Gragg when he said "Chris can make a lot of big plays. He’s big. He’s fast. He’s got good hands."

If you have Williams on your roster, you may want to pick up Gragg and start him instead.
