Cowboys' Wendling Drafted by Buffalo Bills

Cheyenne, WY – University of Wyoming standout John
Wendling has been drafted by the Buffalo Bills. The Bills picked Wendling in the sixth round of the N-F-L draft today (Sunday) at number 184. Wendling is a 6-1, 222-pound safety who co-captained the
Cowboys. He was a standout on special teams and led the Cowboys with 78 tackles, of which 38 were solo. In a posting on the Bills' Web site, Bills scout Brad Forsyth says Wendling is an excellent physical specimen. He says Wendling's defensive numbers would probably be higher at U-W if the team hadn't thrown so many different roles at him in special teams. And in comments posted on the Bills' site, Wendling says he tried to understand the game a little more and anticipate the
offense a bit more in this last season. He says that might have slowed him down a bit. Wendling says football is the game he loves and says he loves having the opportunity to bring his talents to the N-F-L.
