With the second-to-last pick in the NFL Draft, 255th overall, the Buffalo Bills have selected North Carolina wide receiver Austin Proehl. The Bills have added much needed help to the receiver position with their last two selections in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Proehl was a four year player for the Tar Heels. Over the course of his collegiate career, he tallied up 91 catches for 1.265 yards and five touchdowns. His best season at North Carolina came in his junior season where he had 43 catches for 597 yards and three touchdown.
Proehl is likely to be a special teams competitor. His father, former NFL receiver Ricky Proehl, was on the coaching staff for the Carolina Panthers while Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane were also a part of the staff.

That wraps up the last pick of the draft for the Buffalo Bills. They selected a total of eight players in six different rounds.
