Draft Scout Kenny Ladler News
08/31/15 - S Kenny Ladler was waived by the Bills Monday (Aug. 31).
10/28/14 - S Kenny Ladler (arm) was placed on reserve/injured by the Bills Tuesday (Oct. 28).
10/12/14 - S Kenny Ladler was signed from the practice squad by the Bills Saturday (Oct. 11). Ladler originally joined the Bills as an undrafted free agent during the offseason. He was released prior to the start of the regular season and signed to the team's practice squad.
06/01/14 - S Kenny Ladler is opening some eyes. He is an undrafted rookie free agent out of Vanderbilt. The Bills need depth at safety, and the 6-foot, 207-pounder doesn't really stand out in any way physically - which is why he wasn't drafted. But one thing caught the Bills' attention and was the primary reason why they signed him: He's a ball hawk. As a senior he intercepted five passes and forced a school-record five fumbles to earn first-team all-SEC honors. He was the first defensive back in SEC history to lead his team in tackles two consecutive years.
However, Ladler ran a poor 4.70 time in the 40 at the combine. Previously considered a late-round possibility, his name went uncalled for three days and he knew that clocking was the main reason. When he sized up a few offers, he decided on Buffalo.
"Based upon the best opportunity that was given, I felt Buffalo was the best spot for me, especially after talking it over with my agent," Ladler said. "We had a good 30-minute talk about where I should go. Buffalo was definitely the most interested, so it was a no-brainer."
Marrone said he was happy to get Ladler after the fact. "I didn't know why he didn't get drafted by other teams," Marrone said. "Maybe it wasn't a need. I was impressed with his foot speed. Obviously, we're going to keep an eye on all of them, but I think he's someone that had a good showing in these last couple days."
05/13/14 - Bills undrafted free agents: S Kenny Ladler - 6-1, 207 - Vanderbilt...Ladler started 39-of-50 games at Vanderbilt and finished his collegiate career with 291 tackles (202 solo), 11 stops for a loss and nine interceptions. The Stone Mountain, GA native became the first defensive back in school and Southeastern Conference history to lead a team in tackles in two consecutive years (90 in 2012 and 91 in 2013). “The one thing that jumped out on film about him was he has a nose for the football. He led them in tackles, had five interceptions and I think five forced fumbles, so he was making big plays on the back end,” said Bills area scout Tom Roth. “He’s got average speed, but very good explosiveness. A very good tackler who can play deep third or in the box.” - Chris Brown, BuffaloBills.com
