Round: 5th (#166 overall)
Name: Wyatt Teller
College: Virginia Tech
Height & Weight: 6’5″, 314 pounds
Key Stats: Three year starter at Virginia Tech, where he was a teammate of Tremaine Edmunds. First team All-ACC in 2017 as a senior. Most of starts at left guard.
Where He Fits on Bills: In the mix to replace Richie Incognito at left guard. Will compete with Miller, Groy/Bodine, Newhouse. Much needed body to add to the competition at a wide open position.
Who He Pushes Off Bills Roster: Possibly Miller if the veteran loses out to Teller.
Expected to Start Right Away?: Maybe. No clear leader for the left guard spot. If Ducasse stays at right guard, and Bodine replaces Wood at center, then Teller will compete with Miller & Groy.
Paul’s Take: Very strong player, a mauler. Doesn’t appear to be very athletic. That can work at guard. Hard nosed and a competitor. Plenty of starting NFL guard have those qualities. Could compete to start at left guard with a great training camp. May wind up earning a backup spot, or on the Bills practice squad while he works on his athletic ability. Strong guys can make it in the NFL if the scheme matchs them. Played at a high level in a good school in a good conference. Seems to me the kind of player Bills fans will root for.
