Kyle Calloway (born June 21, 1987) is an American football offensive tackle who is currently a free agent. He was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of the University of Iowa.

Calloway was considered to be a late-round draft prospect in the 2010 NFL Draft.[1][2] He has also been a member of the Hartford Colonials and Baltimore Ravens.

Early years

As a military dependant, Calloway attended three high schools in four years. He graduated from Belleville East High School in Belleville, Illinois, where he was an all-city and all-conference tackle as a senior, and also played tight end and primarily defensive tackle as a junior.

Considered a three-star recruit by Rivals.com, Calloway was ranked 55th among offensive tackle prospects in the nation.[3] He chose Iowa over Missouri, Kansas, and Arizona.

College career

After redshirting his initial year at Iowa, Calloway saw limited action as a back-up at left guard in 2006. In 2007, he became the starting left tackle, but was replaced with Bryan Bulaga and moved to right tackle in 2008. He received an All-Big Ten Honorable Mention as a junior.[4]

In 2009, Calloway was listed at No. 13 on Rivals.com′s preseason offensive tackle power ranking.[5] In June of that year, he was arrested and "charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated" while driving a moped.[6]

Professional career

On June 8, 2010 Calloway signed a multi-year contract with the Buffalo Bills. He was released on August 30, 2010.

2010 NFL Draft

Calloway ranks among the best offensive tackles in his class,[1] and draws comparisons to Marc Colombo.[7] According to NFL.com's Gil Brandt, "Calloway should be a solid pro starter" at right tackle in the NFL.[2] He was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the seventh round (216th overall).

Hartford Colonials
