Wyatt Teller is the definition of a workout warrior. There are several stories to come out of Virginia Tech detailing his superhuman strength. He also has the size and aggression that you look for in NFL starter. He must put it all together on the field consistently.
Teller fell out of the mid-rounds because his senior film did not match the scouting reports from previous years. As a junior, he showed nastiness with every block and created huge running lanes. As a senior, he looked sluggish on tape and it cost him during the draft. There was indication of an injury, so the tape was met with criticism.
I have no doubt he will be a solid starter in the NFL. He has all the tools you look for in an interior lineman. His work ethic on the field must match his work ethic in the weight room. It is obvious his play dropped off during his senior year, the Bills are banking on Teller rebounding strong as a pro.
