ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Bills have signed offensive lineman Dion Dawkins, the second of Buffalo's two second-round draft picks.
The 23-year-old out of Temple is listed at 6-foot-4 and 314 pounds and was selected 63rd overall. Dawkins was a three-year starter mostly at left tackle, but has experience to play various positions.

He started 40 games in college and last season helped the Owls to a 10-4 finish and win the AAC title.
The Bills will give Dawkins a chance to compete for a starting job at right tackle on a line that helped Buffalo lead the NFL in yards rushing in each of the past two seasons.
Buffalo has now signed five of its six draft selections, leaving fifth-round pick, quarterback Nathan Peterman, not yet under contract.
