The Buffalo Bills are using one of their 30 pre-draft visits leading up to this month’s NFL Draft on Trevon Wesco, a predominantly blocking tight end from West Virginia who impressed scouts with his pass-catching abilities during West Virginia’s pro day.
According to Ryan Talbot of NewYorkUpstate.com, Wesco—who is projected as a day three selection—will be meeting with Buffalo’s brass leading up to April’s NFL Draft.
Wesco was used mostly as a blocker his first two seasons in Morgantown, catching two passes in two years before enjoying a breakthrough in 2018. Last fall, Wesco finished fourth on the Mountaineers with 366 receiving yards on 26 catches (averaging 14.1 yards per catch) with one touchdown.
Wesco was named to the first-team All-Big 12 and earned an invitation to the Senior Bowl, where he logged time as both a fullback and tight end.
Listed at 6’3” and 267 lbs, Wesco has been praised for his outstanding blocking ability, while scouts admit he is rather raw as a pass catcher.
Lance Zierlein, an NFL draft analyst for NFL.com, says Wesco “has a terrific demeanor as a run-blocker and the footwork to become much more consistent in sustaining blocks once he gets his hand placement corrected. Teams might view him as an early developmental prospect on the practice squad with a chance to compete for a tight end spot in the future.”
Walterfootball.com mentioned Wesco as one of its draft prospects on the rise, describing him as someone “showing the ability to play both fullback and tight end while also contributing on special teams could really help his draft grade.”
