It's been a good day for Western New York football. Buffalo native and UB product Steven Means became the second local player drafted this afternoon when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected him in the fifth round, at No. 147 overall, in the 2013 NFL Draft. 

Means, a two-time All-Western New York selection at Grover Cleveland, played in 12 games last season for the Bulls, making 77 tackles, 11 for loss, 6.5 sacks, and three blocked kicks. He started 43 games for the Bulls and finished fourth in school history with 18.5 career sacks.

Here's a scouting report on Means from our "Road to the Draft" series."
