The Boston College Eagles have another player heading to the NFL.

With the 163rd pick in the NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills selected linebacker Matt Milano.

Milano was the 14th highest ranked outside linebacker in this year’s draft pool according to

Milano was selected as an All-ACC honorable mention for his senior season at the Heights, and was named the William J. Flynn MVP by the team.

In this year’s Quicklane Bowl against Maryland, Milano made his mark in the game by recording 1.5 sacks and a fumble recovery.

His 31.5 tackles for a loss registered at BC is a mark good for ninth all-time at Boston College.

Milano will join the Buffalo Bills in the midst of transition. After Rex Ryan was fired following the end of the 2016 season, the Bills hired Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott to lead the Bills. McDermott played in college at William & Mary before joining the staff of his hometown Philadelphia Eagles.
