#6-Tremaine Edmunds, 2018, Pick #16

The second first round pick the Bills took in 2018 was a starter for the Bills for his entire tenure with the team. Tremaine was the most solid of LBs that you could ever ask for. He did not make any real splash plays, but he was essentially a no fly zone for the middle of the field for the Bills.

He was a sound tackler and played with good instincts, and was the QB for the defense. Tremaine's rookie season saw a day one starter who helped solidify the middle of this defense, with him logging 121 tackles, 80 solo tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles, and two interceptions. From there, Tremaine never looked back in production, especially in the tackling department.

He has logged 100+ tackles in every year of his career, both with the Bills and the Bears. Even though he was a solid starter, he never usually made the splash plays that Bills fans have clamored for, with two interceptions in his rookie season being his highest amount of interceptions in a season with the Bills. He did double that amount this past season with the Bears with 4.

Overall, Tremaine was a leader and a captain for this team who did his job well and did not give up too much, nor did he take away too much. For that, I give him a B- grade.
