With their second selection in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills selected linebacker Tremaine Edmunds from Virginia Tech.
During his time as a Hokie, the Danville, VA. native played in 32 games, recording 213 total tackles and an interception.
Now two seasons into his young career, Edmunds has already surpassed his college output, recording 236 combined tackles and three interceptions with the Bills. With Edmunds, there are stats that back up the notion of him being a great player but there are a lot of things people don’t always see. For instance, he is involved in almost every single play and in 2019, he was named a defensive captain.
Speaking of his 2019 season, it was the best of his career so far as his efforts garnered him a Pro Bowl nod; which made him one of the youngest to represent the Bills at the game at only 21 years old.
Buffalo has had a musical-chairs like linebacking core for a few years now and have yet to solidify the position. Players like Kiko Alonso, Brandon Spikes, Preston Brown and a slew of others have hunkered down the Bills tackle box but the combination of youth, skill and leadership in Edmunds ensures that the linebacking position will be in good hands for years to come.
