Bills select Iowa OT Kyle Calloway at No. 216

New, comments

With the No. 216 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have selected Iowa offensive tackle Kyle Calloway. They have now made all of their picks, bringing their draft to a close.

Playing opposite Bryan Bulaga on the right side of Iowa's offensive line, the 6'6", 322-pound Calloway was a three-year starter for coach Kirk Ferentz, and played not only right tackle, but left tackle and guard as well. Calloway is very limited athletically, as he's not particularly light on his feet, struggles to make blocks at the second level and on the move, and as such, he'll be limited to right tackle or guard at the NFL level. What he brings to the table is solid technique, good football instincts, a mean streak, and a great head on his shoulders.

This is a very solid value selection for Buffalo to end their draft, as Calloway has been considered a mid-round selection for months. He enters the mix at right tackle, where veteran Cornell Green is involved, and adds more depth to a Bills offensive line that could use warm bodies. Calloway is the second OT selected by Buffalo this year, following fifth-round pick Ed Wang.

That does it for Buffalo's 2010 NFL Draft. Stay tuned for a recap post, which will be coming up a little later on this evening. Thanks for spending your weekend with Buffalo Rumblings!
