Draft 2017

Pick No.195

Selected By: Buffalo Bills

Round: 6

Pick (Overall): 11 (195)

Pick Analysis: The high school All-American from California was part of Boise's pipeline into the state that has fueled the team's ascension into the top tier of college football programs. He played in 11 games, starting six as a true freshman (51 tackles, 5.5 for loss, three pass breakups) after the team burned his redshirt two games into the year. Vallejo led the team with 100 tackles as a sophomore, including 16.5 for loss, three sacks, one interception and four pass breakups, garnering second-team All-Mountain West accolades and winning MVP awards for the MWC championship game (13 tackles, three TFL, pick-six) and Fiesta Bowl (14 tackles, 1.5 sacks). He was an honorable mention all-conference selection in 2015 (57 tackles, eight TFL, two forced fumbles, two blocked kicks), though he missed two games due to injury and was suspended for the team's bowl game for violating team rules. Vallejo struggled with injuries during his senior year, playing with braces on both arms at times before shutting it down after nine games in order to have surgery on his right wrist in November. He earned honorable mention All-Mountain West notice by making 69 tackles, six for loss, in just nine games.
