5 things to know about Bills' fifth-round pick Wyatt Teller

With their second fifth-round pick of the 2018 Draft, the Bills selected Virginia Tech guard Wyatt Teller 166th overall. Here are five things to know about him.

1. Pro Football Focus loved him.

The analytics site Pro Football Focus ranked Teller as the 53rd-best prospect in the entire draft and the fourth-rated guard. They said he gave up zero sacks and only seven total pressures last season in 443 snaps.

2. He's strong.

Teller bench pressed 225 pounds 30 times at the Combine, ranking fifth among offensive linemen. He recorded a 600-pound back squat as a freshman at VT.

3. He helps a big area of need.

The Bills will have plenty of competition across their offensive line this summer. The top guards on the depth chart after Richie Incognito's retirement are Vlad Ducasse and John Miller.

4. His first name is William.

Teller prefers to go by his middle name, Wyatt. Bold.

5. He's a converted defensive lineman.

Teller was recruited as a top defensive lineman, but a rash of injuries to the Hokies' offensive linemen resulted in Teller changing sides of the ball as a freshman and he stuck there.
