1974 Profile: Paul Seymour

Tight End
No. 87
"Seymour developed into an offensive regular during his rookie season. He started all 14 games at tight end after being converted from tackle during the preseason. Paul has good speed for his size and is a tough blocker.
Paul caught 10 passes for 114 yards and an 11.4 average, and his longest gain was 22 yards. His best game was against the Colts on October 14- four receptions for 34 yards. Buffalo's top draft choice in 1973, Seymour will start at tight end this fall.
Seymour started his college career at tight end and moved to tackle in his junior season. He won All-Big Ten and All-America honors in 1972 and was selected to participate in the Hula Bowl, East-West Shrine Game and College All-Star Game.
Physical education and history were his areas of concentration as an undergraduate. His brother, Jim, was an All-America at Notre Dame who later played professionally with the Chicago Bears. Paul is a guitar player, and music and reading are his hobbies."
