Bills take QB, pair of linebackers on final day of the draft

After trading down on day one of the draft, the Bills traded up on day two, which should have left them with a relatively uneventful day three.

But then they took a quarterback.

Buffalo used its three day three picks on a pair of linebackers, but the headline grabber was the selection of Pittsburgh QB Nathan Peterman with the 171st pick of the draft.

Peterman is known as more of a game manager type, but is a player that Sean McDermott seems to like a lot. McDermott called drafting Peterman at the end of the fifth round "a no-brainer."

The Bills other selections were a pair of linebackers: the versatile Matt Milano out of Boston College, and Tanner Vallejo out of Boise State.

The Bills completed the 2017 draft with six total picks.
