On Saturday, the Buffalo Bills signed the second of their 2018 first round draft picks, linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, to a four year deal, leaving only two of the team’s eight picks remaining left to sign contracts.
The Bills took Edmunds as the 16th overall pick in the draft this year, trading up to select the talented Virginia Tech product after he was projected to be a top-10 pick before the draft. The 20-year-old is already calling the defense through the first day of rookie mini-camp according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Edmunds has a good chance to start in 2018, presuming he has no set backs through OTA’s and training camp. In fact, he’s already been projected to be the 2018 defensive rookie of the year, according to ESPN NFL insider Mike Sando.
With Edmunds putting pen to paper, that leaves only two members of the Bills 2018 draft class unsigned. DT Harrison Phillips, Buffalo’s third-round choice, and QB Josh Allen, selected number seven overall, are the only draft picks who remain unsigned.
