The Buffalo Bills had several rookies perform well during the 2018 season, yet none were selected for a recent list of the best in the league.

The Buffalo Bills saw some great production from both drafted and undrafted rookies during the 2018 season.

Josh Allen and Tremaine Edmunds led the way as the two first-round picks under the microscope, while Robert Foster and Levi Wallace were starting-caliber undrafted players.

ESPN.com’s Jeff Legwold recently published the site’s selections for the 2018 all-rookie team and unfortunately, no Bills were chosen. However, a few did appear as honorable mentions.

Robert Foster was an honorable mention at both wide receiver and the flex position, while Tremaine Edmunds showed up at linebacker. I’m a bit surprised Wallace didn’t get a mention, but there was a lot of rookie talent in the NFL this season.

Baker Mayfield was the choice at quarterback while Sam Darnold and Lamar Jackson received honorable mentions. I agree with Mayfield and Jackson, yet I think Allen has a fair argument over Darnold thanks to his rushing stats. Or maybe I am just biased.

I would recommend checking out the entire list if you are someone who wasn’t up to date with all the top rookies throughout the league. So many players emerged as future stars of the game in 2018, and the Bills were lucky enough to have several of those players on the roster.

Allen, Edmunds, Foster, Wallace, Harrison Phillips and Taron Johnson are all 2018 rookies who should be key pieces in 2019 and moving forward.

Then fans have to remember that the team has another important draft coming up in a few months, where the team owns the No. 9 overall pick. Another solid class, both drafted and undrafted, will have the Bills set up as a legitimate contender for years to come.
