Offensive lineman Wyatt Teller doesn’t need a scouting report to see what’s happening with the Buffalo Bills.

He knows his newest team made a splash to open the draft Logan Cooke Jersey Elite , with a potential franchise quarterback and defensive game-changer arriving in the top half of the first round.

Wyatt got a first-hand look at former Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, whom the Bills selected seventh overall, while blocking for him on the North team at the Senior Bowl. Tremaine Edmunds, taken 16th overall by Buffalo, was Wyatt’s teammate in college at Virginia Tech.

”Tremaine, in my opinion, is an absolute stud. He’s one of the best players I’ve ever played against,” Teller said. ”(Allen’s) deep ball is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. He can chuck a ball and he’s a smart kid. I see an identity coming. You’re getting both sides of the ball and this is a place I wanted to go.”

Teller joined that duo on Saturday as part of Buffalo’s youth movement.

Selected 166th overall, the fifth-round pick may help to fill an unexpected hole along the offensive line. Center Eric Wood abruptly retired at the end of last season after doctors uncovered a career-ending neck injury at his exit physical.

Veteran guard Richie Incognito stunned the team by announcing his retirement earlier this month.

At 6-foot-4, 314 pounds, Teller has the size and power to make an impact in the NFL. He bench presses 420 pounds, squats 600 pounds and is known for his ability to handle defenders in the run game. He has already made one successful transition, moving from the defensive line in high school to the offensive line at Virginia Tech.

Some projections had Teller going as high as the third round, and he’ll likely compete for a starting job at guard as a rookie.

”Everything comes down to competition Browns Game Jerseys ,” Teller said. ”Everything comes down to working as hard as you can. If I want to make that transition from college to the NFL, it’s basically like switching a position. It’s going to be difficult and it’s all about competing.”

Here are some observations about the Bills’ draft.

KEEPING THEIR EDGE: One key for the Bills was landing two top-end prospects at premium positions without mortgaging the future or giving away their surplus of picks.

The Bills entered the week with a bounty of draft capital and were able to trade up twice in the first round without surrendering their second first-round pick or any 2019 selections.

”I have got to be honest, I did not expect to be able to get a quarterback and Tremaine,” Bills general manager Brandon Beane said.

”I thought we were going to have to give up the 22nd pick. Tremaine would have been in our conversation at 12 if we did not move up and we did not have a quarterback we liked. When he was there and he fell a little bit, we just felt it was such a good fit that we had to go up and get him.”

LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON? : Buffalo’s final pick of the draft was North Carolina wide receiver Austin Proehl, son of former NFL wideout Ricky Proehl. Buffalo chose Austin Proehl with the second-to-last pick of the draft at 255th overall. Ricky Proehl played in the league for 17 seasons, making 669 receptions for 8,878 yards and 54 touchdowns while winning a Super Bowl with the St. Louis Rams. Austin Proehl had 91 receptions for 1,265 yards and five touchdowns in four years with the Tar Heels.

Beane has known Austin Proehl longer than any other prospect given his relationship with Ricky Proehl. Beane was with the Panthers when Ricky played for Carolina from 2004-06, and Ricky was a member of the Panthers’ coaching staff from 2011-17.

”I’ve known him since he was eight, so I’ve known him for a long time,” Beane said of Austin. ”We were still looking for competition at the slot position and he was on the board. He’s a great young man obviously. We know what kind of person (he is). He’s a really polished route runner, refined. He was schooled up by a guy who played 17 years in the league.”

MORE DB DEPTH: Buffalo’s best position group got even deeper on Day 3 with the selections of cornerback Taron Johnson (121st overall) and safety Siran Neal (154th overall). Johnson is the early favorite to land Buffalo’s nickel cornerback role. Neal will have a hard time earning playing time to open his career with standouts Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer ahead of him on the depth chart.

STILL NEED: The Bills chose two receivers late in the draft with Ray-Ray McCloud (sixth round) and Austin Proehl (seven round) Authentic Denzel Ward Jersey , but they still desperately need help after fielding one of the worst receiving groups in the league in 2017.

Buffalo does have Kelvin Benjamin returning after playing through much of last season with a knee injury. More speed and experience would be a plus, especially with unproven talent at quarterback in Josh Allen and AJ McCarron.



Browns general manager John Dorsey is old-school cool, from his wardrobe to keeping his plans for the upcoming NFL draft private.

He's not tipping his hand.

"You know," Dorsey said, "a man once told me: Don't show all your cards at once."

Dorsey kept things close to the vest 鈥?or in his case, a white-and-orange team sweat shirt 鈥?on Thursday during a mandatory pre-draft news conference in which he sidestepped any questions about which quarterback he's considering with the No. 1 overall pick.

For months, Cleveland fans have debated whether the team should select Southern Cal's Sam Darnold or Wyoming's Josh Allen or UCLA's Josh Rosen or Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield.

Asked point blank, if he had made up his mind, Dorsey scrambled like a QB being blitzed.

"You know what?" he said. "I'm a guy of processes. I'm a guy of structure. I'm a guy of systems and I'm a creature of habit. I've done it for 20-some years. But where we are in the process right now, I think the draft is seven days away. But I'm very confident in where we are in the process moving forward."

And so it went for nearly 30 minutes as Dorsey, who was hired in December to fix a franchise mired in losing, offered few clues on what he intends to do with either of his first-round picks. The Browns also own the No. 4 selection.

The team is expected to draft a quarterback first, but Dorsey said he's leaving his options 鈥?including a trade 鈥?open and that he's even considered using the first pick on Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, considered by some draft experts to be the top overall talent in this year's player pool.

"Why wouldn't I?" Dorsey said when asked about Barkley Marshall Newhouse Jersey Bills , who dazzled pro personnel at the combine. "The guy's a really good football player. Absolutely. You can't have enough of them on your team."

While Barkley is intriguing, quarterback is a priority for the Browns, who are coming off a 0-16 season.

They've spent three decades in a fruitless search for a long-term answer at the game's most important position, and after the previous front office regime passed on the chance to draft either Carson Wentz or Deshaun Watson the past two years, Dorsey has his sights set on getting an elite quarterback now.

The Browns have done their due diligence in preparing for the draft. They've attended pro days, conducted private workouts and brought Darnold, Allen, Rose and Mayfield in for visits to get to know them better.

Darnold is believed to be the favorite to wind up in Cleveland. But there has been a growing buzz that Allen has closed the gap, especially after Sports Illustrated cited an unnamed "friend of Dorsey" predicting the Wyoming QB will be picked by the Browns.

Dorsey said no one knows his plans.

"First off, who is friend of Dorsey?" he said. "Second of all, I'm going to tell y'all, I go black in this time of year. I mean for a month, I don't listen to radio, I don't watch TV and I don't pick up the newspaper. I kind of sit there. I think scouting Authentic Logan Paulsen Jersey Elite Womens Youth Big&Tall Nike Atlanta Falcons NFL Shop Free Shipping , when you do that, you see the purity of information. You see the facts, and you see the film without listening to the outside white noise.

"And that's kind of the way I've always done it."

All four quarterbacks have positives and negatives. Darnold started for two years at one of the nation's top programs, but he's been turnover prone; Allen has the strongest arm but accuracy issues; Rosen is the best pure passer but is considered aloof by some; and Mayfield is undersized by pro standards and there are questions about his character.

"You guys always try to create the narrative of this guy, that he's like something he's not," Dorsey said in defending the Heisman Trophy winner. "Just meeting with him, he's a pleasant fella. He's pretty sharp. He's fine. I have no problems with him."

And while Dorsey feels hand size is important for a quarterback playing in Cleveland's inclement weather, there are other measurements he'll consider.

"The only thing I really care about is do guys win?" Dorsey said. "Does he have accuracy? Does he have a strong arm? Can he throw the ball in the red zone in tight windows? Can he drive the ball? At the end of the game, does he win? How do they play the game of football? And then are they good people? Do they love the game of football? Will their teammates like them?

"That's kind of how I look at things."
