Buffalo Bills sign 5th-round draft pick, Jonathan Williams

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Bills have signed rookie fifth-round draft pick running back Jonathan Williams.

He was selected 156th overall out of Arkansas, where he missed his senior season last year because of a torn ligament in his foot. Williams was a dual-threat as a rusher and receiver in his first three seasons.

He had 2,321 yards rushing and 16 touchdowns and added 345 yards receiving and six TDs in 36 career games.

The Bills have now three of the seven players they selected in the draft.
