Matt Milano (2017 - Current)
Matt Milano was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the 2017 NFL Draft and was taken in the fifth round, out of Boston College, 163rd overall pick. He became a starting outside linebacker in his second season.
It’s crazy to think that Milano is getting ready to start his seventh year with the team too. It certainly doesn’t seem like he’s been in the league that long but has become one of the best outside linebackers in the league, earning Pro Bowl and first-team All-Pro honors in 2022.
He’s already accumulated 458 tackles and 10.5 sacks while adding a solid eight interceptions over his career. With Sean McDermott calling the defensive plays, Milano might have his highest sack total this season.
Milano has become a big-time fan favorite too for not only his play on the field but he’s also signed team-friendly contracts, even after his initial contract, he became a free agent and fans assumed he would leave; however, he chose less money to stay a Buffalo Bill.
Before it’s all said and done, Milano might go down as the greatest linebacker in Buffalo Bills’ history, and the fact he garnered the second most votes in these polls, only solidifies that opinion.
