This year’s look at the Bills’ second-year players begins with Tuel, who was signed by the team out of Washington State and went on to start a game last year.

The Pacific-12 Conference has been one of the most consistent producers of NFL talent in recent years. Throughout the past five drafts, the Pac-12 has averaged more than 29 players selected.
