The Bills are excited about the progress of their first-round picks this year, plural.

While quarterback Josh Allen‘s season was interrupted by injury, they’re also encouraged by the way Tremaine Edmunds finished the season.

The linebacker was named AFC defensive rookie of the month, after registering 43 tackles, two interceptions, four pass breakups and a sack in December.

The responsibilities of playing middle linebacker are big for any player, but seeing a rookie flourish the way Edmunds has helps the Bills go into the offseason on a positive note.

  1. Hmmmm….. Coach McDermott is building a defense around a super smart, super athletic Middle Linebacker and an offense around a big QB who can run as well as throw. Where have we seen that before?

  2. Bills lucked out in last years Draft. They walked away with the best QB and best MLB in the Draft. Two Franchise players McDermott can build around.

  3. It seemed like he got all that just in the Miami game alone. I was hoping the Fins drafted him but they did get a good player in Fitzpatrick it’s just that our LB Corp isn’t that great.

  4. Sorry GJV but once you learn a little about football, I’m sure you’ll correctly reassess your misinformed opinion to fourth best LB (R. Smith, D. Leonard, Vander Esch) and QB (Mayfield, Darnold, Jackson). Enjoy the warm winter. Cheers.

    We will enjoy the winter, maybe over the winter you can take a little time to learn about football.

  6. Brings back emories of when Jim Kelly and Bruce Smith were just young pups coming into the league.

  7. Impressive.

    Especially when you consider that he is only 20yrs old.

    And his season is made even more impressive when you take into account that this was his first year ever playing middle LB. He was an OLB in college.
