2017 NFL Draft: Buffalo Bills select Tanner Vallejo, LB, Boise State

New, comments

Buffalo doubled up on linebackers on the final day of the draft.

With the 195th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have selected Tanner Vallejo, LB from Boise State.

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.
