Trading up in the first round for selecting quarterback Josh Allen and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds left the team with no picks in the second round, meaning the team and its fans had to wait through 80 other picks before making this selection. The guy led Stanford in tackles a year ago as a nose tackle. He emphasizes he wants to do so "as soon as possible".
Beane and the Bills selected Teller at No. 166 overall in the fifth round. The Bills, who traded up to No. 7 to get their franchise quarterback, Wyoming's Josh Allen, are clearly looking to surround him with playmakers, but Beane apparently doesn't feel Bryant fits that description. "I'm not gonna be ignorant enough to assume that he understands the [N-] word as I understand it and a lot of people understand it", Alexander said. "We have looked at Dez on tape, but I wouldn't take it any further and I don't know where that would go". "Most of them, I think it's been reported, accurately, were song lyrics that someone wrote that he either retweeted or gave a thumbs up to - I'm not on social media, so I may screw some of this up".
Congrats go out to former University of Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, who became the highest NFL Draft pick by any Wyoming Cowboy in school history on Thursday. "I'm a big believer in Bills mafia and I've seen the moves that they've made in this offseason and I'm just anxious and excited to try and just contribute in any way that I can".
Buffalo will conclude the draft with five picks over the last four rounds today. He's listed at 6-foot-3 and 307 pounds and was a two-year starter with the Cardinal.

Allen's tweets were sent in 2012 and 2013 and no longer appear on his account. They contained racially insensitive language and offensive statements.
He has repeatedly apologized for the posts, while saying he was "young and dumb" in parroting rap lyrics and catchphrases from TV and pop culture.
The Bills entered the week with a bounty of draft capital and were able to trade up twice in the first round without surrendering their second first-round pick or any 2019 selections. In fact, general manager Brandon Beane says the team is not ruling out the possibility of Allen starting as a rookie.
"(Allen's) deep ball is unlike anything I've ever seen.
