Wyatt Teller came to Virginia Tech all the way back in 2013 as a four-star defensive lineman. Now, Teller is one of the best offensive linemen in the entire NFL after being named second-team All-Pro on Friday.

Teller switched to the offensive line early in his career. The transition wasn’t always smooth, but Teller worked hard. He became a starter during his redshirt season in 2014 at guard.

For his four-year playing career in Blacksburg, which ended in 2017 when he was selected as first-team All-ACC, Teller played in 53 games, making 43 starts for the Hokies.

The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Teller was a fifth-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in 2018, where he started seven games. He was traded one year later to the Cleveland Browns, where he won a starting job midway through the 2019 season and has not looked back since.

Only injuries prevented Teller from making first-team All-Pro in 2020.

The Browns won their playoff opener over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, meaning Teller will play another week. Once Cleveland’s season is over, Teller is in line for an extension where it is expected he will be one of the highest-paid guards in the league.

Congrats, Wyatt Teller. Hokie Nation is proud of you.
