Matt Milano, linebacker

Another fan favorite, Matt Milano has put himself on the Mount Rushmore of fan favorites. He was the 163rd overall selection of the 2017 NFL Draft, going in the fifth round. Milano has been incredibly loyal to Buffalo too, excepting less money to remain with the Bills. Bills fans adore him for his selflessness and the classic underdog tale – a late-round draft pick who defied expectations to become an All-Pro linebacker.

In 2022, Milano was voted first-team All-Pro and made the Pro Bowl squad, after an outstanding season. He recorded three interceptions, returning one for a touchdown, and had 99 combined tackles. He also added 1.5 sacks and 11 passes defensed. Unfortunately, his 2923 season was cut short after just five games due to injury, which has been a bit of an issue for Milano. Barring injuries, his stellar play could enshrine him among the Bills' linebacker greats.
