    They likely want to trade down and still take a WR

    That’s fair, but if we have a specific receiver who ranks highly on our draft board, that could be a risky move. A trade down would indicate we don’t have much faith in any of the remaining receivers, and there isn’t much separation between those guys. I think it’s a matter of giving me less confidence on a personal level. I want the Bills to be high on one of these wideouts, it somehow gives me more hope.

    unfortunately, none of the ones left were real. May as well take a star pass catcher if there’s not a qb

    Yeah, I don’t know if I’d go that path as a GM though. I don’t like any of the QB’s left, but at the end of the day, none of us can predict these things. If you don’t have a playoff QB, I think you need to keep selecting them until you find one. Each year becomes a wasted lottery ticket. That receiver isn’t going to move the dial, no matter how good. The Bills made the same mistake at the QB position during the drought years.

    It's not as paper thin as you might want to believe

    I agree, but if you do think it’s paper thin, that’s a commentary on our drafting. It’d be best to go in a different direction and draft offense. Try to get that elite playmaker, we’ve already drafted tons of defense. If that side doesn’t have depth, there’s not much we can do since we’ve pumped so much into it.

    I dont trust Joe Brady enough to be able to scheme plays where a traditional X is not needed.  I think we will end up with these smaller slot guys all getting jammed at the line.

    This sums up my feelings, and although most of this board agrees on the need for a receiver, most people are higher on Brady than myself. Brady hasn’t shown the ability to turn us into those Pats teams with dominant tight end play and slot receivers. I think Allen and Brady both need a traditional number one. We’re not dealing with an offensive coach like Shanahan who can scheme new ways to win. Brady showed absolutely zero ability to involve Knox and Kincaid as a cohesive entity. Instead he threw everything back on the shoulders of Josh Allen. Two play makers at tight end should have allowed Josh easier throws, less need to run, and less difficult passes. We didn’t see that at all. I think I’m one of the few who isn’t on board with Brady at all.

    High D draft picks by this regime struggle to crack McDs starting lineup

    I think part of the problem with our defensive draft choices is the type of players we pick. I realize that success can’t be guaranteed, but this regime is too hung up on having a type. We tend to go for undersized speed guys who aren’t unanimously regarded as impact players. Our defensive draft choices are often guys with potential, but many red flags. We reach for guys who fit McD’s scheme, and I think we suffer for that.

    It's been explained quite a bit, but McConkey lined up on the outside close to 80% of the snaps. Folks who are painting him as a gritty slot receiver are mistaken. He's the best route runner in the draft and faster than I think many folks imagine. He'd be a great pick at #28.

     

    I like these fella's rankings. If you go to the 46 minute mark, they make the case for McConkey.  

     

     

    I just watched McConkey’s college highlights, and can’t stop seeing a slightly versatile slot receiver. I want to see what others are seeing, but I don’t get it. The college highlights look strikingly similar to a Kincaid, Shakir, Samuel type player. We don’t have a need for that. I appreciate the fact he lined up on the outside, but that’s college. The NFL is a huge step up, and I don’t see a guy with the physicality to play on the outside consistently. Our greatest hope is finding a Metcalf, Lamb, or AJ Brown type player. Someone who can dominate physically, while giving Josh a downfield threat. I’m not saying you’re wrong, I just struggle seeing this in McConkey. He looks like a slot receiver twig figure running down the field.

  7. McConkey gets a lot of love on this forum, and rightfully so, but can someone please explain how he’d fit in with Shakir and Kincaid? I ask as a legitimate question I’d be interested in hearing feedback on. I don’t understand how we’d use him without taking away from those guys. McConkey as a Buffalo Bill makes no sense to me.
