NFL player comparisons for Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Luke Tenuta

In the sixth round, the Buffalo Bills drafted offensive tackle Luke Tenuta from Virginia Tech. The first thing that stands out with Tenuta is that he is similar to other offensive tackles the Bills have drafted in that he is a tall 6’8″ player, similar to Spencer Brown and Tommy Doyle.

In the past three seasons with Virginia Tech, Tenuta has started 25 games with 15 at right tackle and 10 at left tackle. Even with the experience, the scouting report on NFL.com has concerns with Tenuta and wonders if he’ll be able to compete professionally.

Player comparisons for Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Luke Tenuta

Of the player comparisons for Luke Tenuta on MockDraftable, the most notable player is Chris McIntosh, who was a first-round pick by the Seattle Seahawks in 2000. He would start 10 games as a rookie at right tackle but suffer from a neck injury that would linger in his career.

McIntosh would start three games the following season, but it would be his last season in the league.

The player with the longest career in the NFL is John Wetzel, who played 46 games and started 24 games between 2016 and 2020. All 24 starts were in the league’s first three years while he played at left tackle in place of an injured starter.

Comparing the best players is Alabama’s Wesley Britt, who was a fifth-round pick by the Chargers, but was one of the team’s last picks as they cut their roster to 53 players.

He would sign with the Patriots on their practice squad that season before making the 53-player roster in 2006. Britt would appear in 16 games over the next three seasons with two starts.

When considering the players the Buffalo Bills have on the roster, it will be a tough climb over the next few months to secure a spot on the 53-player roster as a rookie. For Tenuta, he will probably be part of the training squad this year and if he can develop enough during this year, he has the potential to be a good backup tackle for this team next season.
