The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Pro Football / A Tremendous Rookie: Unleashing a Beast in the AFC East

A Tremendous Rookie: Unleashing a Beast in the AFC East

Look out for Tremaine Edmunds!
Publish Date: 05/24/2018
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

Now that the 2018 NFL Draft has come to a close and mock drafts have been memorialized, we have now reached the point in time of the offseason to contemplate the newly drafted rookies’ future. In keeping with this tradition, I would like to make my own bold prediction. And it has nothing to do with the controversial number 7 pick, quarterback Josh Allen.

With a stockpiling of draft picks, the Buffalo Bills were extremely fortunate to be able to keep one of their other first round picks when trading up to land their coveted and franchise quarterback prospect in Wyoming QB Josh Allen. For Brandon Beane and company, this was up there with the likes of highway robbery. The stars were all aligned on NFL Draft night for the Bills’ front office.

For their second first round pick, at no. 16 overall, they decided to go with a defensive playmaker, by selecting the 19 year-old former Hokie linebacker Tremaine Edmunds.

Weeks after the draft and in the midst of celebrating his 20th birthday, Edmunds inked a four-year deal with the Bills.

The young rookie has all the makings of becoming a top-10 defensive rookie in his class in the regular season. With that being said, this puts him in the category of being nominated for Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Let’s look at the facts we already know about the rookie standout.

At 6-foot-5 and 253 lbs, with a monster 83-inch wingspan, he clocked in shocking numbers at the NFL Combine, which included a 4.54 in the 40-yard dash. He’s got lightning fast speed with freakishly long arms. These comic book superhero-level attributes he possesses will only benefit the Bills’ pass rushing ability, especially when facing and trying to shut down elite quarterbacks like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers this upcoming 2018 season.

Once the regular season rolls by, he may very well likely be the most “feared beast in the AFC East” by transforming the Buffalo Bills defense into one of the top defenses in the league. The Bills’ stalwart defense will be on top in the AFC East at the very least. By securing Edmunds, the Bills just added a ferocious weapon in the Bills’ defensive arsenal and come September, the beast will be unleashed as a starting middle linebacker when they play the Ravens in Baltimore.

Once training camp officially hits in the Summer and after the slate of preseason games, it will be interesting to see how the young rookie proves himself given the talent he has.

During his 2017 season with the Virginia Tech Hokies, he led his team with tackles with a total of 109. Over the course of his three years at VA Tech, he tallied up a total of 226 tackles, with a career high of 16 tackles in just one game against Syracuse in 2016.

Last year, Defensive Rookie of the Year nominee and breakout cornerback Tre’Davious White won over the hearts of Bills fans everywhere.

But will history repeat itself this year for Edmunds’ sake? Maybe even taking it a step further by grabbing the NFL DROY award that White had lost out on to Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore for the 2017 season?

Buckle up, Bills fans. Tremaine Edmunds is going put on a commanding defensive show for all to see every Sunday.
