Buffalo Bills UDFA Named Most Likely To Make Team
It's an annual ritual in the National Football League. After the seven rounds of the NFL draft conclude, teams scan the undrafted players, and add undrafted free agents to their rosters.
The Bills this year, have signed seven UDFA's so far this offseason:
CB Travon Fuller | Tulsa
RB Raheem Blackshear | Virginia Tech
DT Prince Emili | Penn
OL Alec Anderson | UCLA
DL Kingsley Jonathan | Syracuse
WR Neil Pau’u | BYU
TE Jalen Wydermyer | Texas A&M
So, out of the seven players, who has the best shot at making the Buffalo Bills 2022 roster?
According to the 33rd Team, the smart money goes on Texas A&M Tight End Jalen Wydermyer.
Prior to the 2021 college football season, he was considered by many the top Tight End prospect in the 2022 draft class. Wydermyer is a 6-foot-5, 255lb beast of a target who was a pass-catching machine in college and was primed to be TE1 off the board in this year's draft. But then, he saw his stock slide after a sub-par final season in College Station where he hauled in 40 passes for 515 yards and 4 TDs.
The numbers were enough for the Bills to take a chance on him as a UDFA. He joins a TE room that includes 2021 breakout player Dawson Knox and free-agent acquisition O.J. Howard.
The 33rd Team says:
Wydermyer has prototypical TE size, is just 21 years old, and is a skilled receiver. With depth openings behind Dawson Knox and newly signed OJ Howard, Wydermyer has a good chance to stay if he performs well.
So, if Wydermyer performs well during training camp and the pre-season, there is a shot that we will see him in Orchard Park come September.
