The Bills signed a pair of draft picks and released three players on Thursday. The two players signed were both linebackers taken by the team in the NFL Draft two weeks ago.

The 6' 0", 225-pound Milano spent four years at Boston College totaling 140 career tackles, 32.5 tackles for loss, one interception and 14.0 sacks. The Orlando, Florida native was named the Eagles’ most valuable player this past season, and was named as a 2016 first-team All-ACC player from Pro Football Focus. He was taken with the team’s first of two 5th round picks, No. 163 overall.

Vallejo was the Bills’ final selection in this year’s draft, taken in the 6th round, No. 195 overall. The 6' 1", 228-pounder spent four years at Boise State, playing in 46 games while registering 275 total tackles, 35 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks and an interception.

As a sophomore, Vallejo led the Broncos with a team-high 99 tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss, three sacks and an interception. He was also named to the 2014 All-Mountain West Second-Team roster. At the 2014 Vizio Fiesta Bowl, Vallejo registered 14 total tackles and 1.5 sacks in Boise State's 38-30 win over the Arizona Wildcats. With his performance, Vallejo earned the Defensive Most Valuable Player honors.

The team also announced they’ve released cornerbacks Marcus Cromartie and Marcus Roberson and wide receiver Corey Washington. They are now at the 90-man roster limit with rookie minicamp beginning Friday.
