Bills sign half their 2018 draft class

Posted May 10, 2018

The Bills got the back half of their draft class under contract on Thursday, signing their last four players selected to four-year contracts.

Rookie minicamp begins on Friday, but the Bills wasted no time getting a good portion of their 2018 draft class under contract. Four of Buffalo’s eight draft choices signed on Thursday leaving only first-round picks Josh Allen and Tremaine Edmunds, third-round pick Harrison Phillips and fourth-round pick Taron Johnson unsigned.

The Bills signed fifth-round picks Wyatt Teller and Siran Neal, sixth-round pick Ray-Ray McCloud and seventh-round draft choice Austin Proehl on Thursday.

All four players signed four-year rookie contracts with the club.

Teller is seen as a viable competitor for a starting job at guard on Buffalo’s offensive line after a successful career at Virginia Tech.

McCloud was a utility player for Clemson on offense, so it will be interesting to see how the Bills choose to deploy him in this weekend’s rookie minicamp.

Neal, who played linebacker, safety and cornerback at Jacksonville State is expected to line up at safety in his first few practices as a pro with the Bills.

And Proehl is going to be a slot receiver candidate, and eventually battle with veteran Jeremy Kerley and others inside.
