At 6’1” 228 pounds, Vallejo is a nickel linebacker prospect similar to Buffalo’s fifth round pick Matt Milano. An above average athlete in all respects, Vallejo can be trusted to track players to the sidelines.
Vallejo had an excellent 2014 season, but missed a month of his senior season after trying unsuccessfully to play through a significant wrist injury. His injury history and size caused him to dip down in the draft.
This is the final pick the Bills have made during the draft. They’ll sit out the seventh round and try to get a head start on contacting agents for the undrafted free agent signing scramble.
Here is the full list of players, positions, schools, and rounds drafted by the Bills this weekend:
Round 1: Tre’Davious White, CB, LSU
Round 2: Zay Jones, WR, East Carolina
Round 2: Dion Dawkins, OT, Temple
Round 5: Matt Milano, LB, Boston College
Round 5: Nate Peterman, QB, Pittsburgh
Round 6: Tanner Vallejo, LB, Boise State
The Bills also added a 2018 first round draft pick in the trade down that eventually netted them White.
