What Team Is Neil Pau’u On?

Prior to their rookie minicamp last weekend, the Buffalo Bills signed nine undrafted free agents, including Neil Pau’u. Neil Pau’u played four seasons at Brigham Young University (BYU), where his first two seasons were spent in a limited capacity.

During that time, he scored three touchdowns, 355 receiving yards, and 32 receptions. Zach Wilson became a major contributor to the offense in 2020, during his breakout season with BYU, when he recorded 45 receptions, 603 receiving yards, and four receiving touchdowns.

Pau’u isn’t a burner, but at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, he has a large frame and steady hands.
At BYU, he lined up both inside and outside and could be utilized as a tight end with his arms extended.



Pau’u started out as a quarterback in high school before switching to wide receiver. While at BYU, he occasionally completed passes on sham plays. Pau’u continued to play a significant role in the offense last year, leading the club with 46 receptions, 526 receiving yards, and six touchdowns.

Neil Pau’u, who would be the tallest wide receiver on the squad with Jake Kumerow at 6’4″ and 215 pounds, would be most known for his size at the wide receiver position.

Pau’u could contribute to the Buffalo Bills’ lack of a strong wide receiver group, but he will likely struggle to make the 53-man roster this season.
