Bills select Vancleave's Chris White in sixth round

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Bills selected linebacker Chris White out of Mississippi State in the sixth round of the draft. White, a Vancleave native, was also a junior college All-American at MS Gulf Coast Community College.

The 6-foot-3, 240-pounder's 110 tackles this past season led the Bulldogs, and were the fourth most in the SEC.

Buffalo earlier picked safety Da'Norris Searcy, Clemson offensive tackle Chris Hairston, and North Carolina running back Johnny White.

The Bills opened the draft by selecting Alabama defensive lineman Marcell Dareus with the third overall pick on Thursday, then selected cornerback Aaron Williams and linebacker Kelvin Sheppard on Day 2.
