1976 Profile: Jeff Yeates

Defensive Tackle
No. 62
Boston College
"Yeates appeared in 13 games in 1975 after seeing action in 10 contests during the 1974 campaign. He continues to improve after missing the entire 1973 season recovering from a knee injury. Jeff blocked a field goal in the final minute against the Patriots to preserve a 29-28 Bills win in 1974.
The fourth draft pick of Buffalo in 1973, Jeff has exceptional quickness for a lineman. He can play either end of tackle and has been used as a nose guard in the 3-4 alignment.
Jeff was a three-year letterman and a defensive leader at Boston College. He made the All-East team as a senior and was chosen to play in the Senior Bowl. He earned his degree in management."
