Bills wrap up draft by selecting LB Vallejo in the 6th round

The Buffalo Bills wrapped up their 2017 NFL Draft Saturday by using their final pick, in the sixth round and 195th overall, on Boise State linebacker Tanner Vallejo.

That gave the Bills an even split of three defensive players and three offensive players since the draft began Thursday night.

The 6-foot-1, 228-pound Vallejo appeared in 46 career games. He was credited with 275 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 35 tackles, and one interception.

In 14 games as a sophomore, he accumulated a team-leading 99 tackles, including 15.5 for loss.

He received defensive MVP honors for registering 14 tackles (10 solo) and 1.5 sacks in the Broncos' 2014 Fiesta Bowl victory against Arizona.

The Bills began the draft by selecting LSU cornerback Tre'Davious White late in the first round, East Carolina wide receiver Zay Jones and Temple offensive lineman Dion Dawkins in the second, and Boston College linebacker Matt Milano and Pittsburgh quarterback Nathan Peterman in the fifth.
