Which "Bubble" guys will you be watching in the pre-season?

Recommended Posts

Which players that are on the cuff of making the roster, or guys on the cuff of making a starting position will you be keeping an eye in the pre season games?

I’ll be watching the wideouts and O line. Duke, likely to the ps, and for unknown reason to see if Vlad gets cut....

 

Go Bills!!!

Can't see us waste a PS spot on Duke Williams if he doens't make the roster outright.  He's already had opportunities in the league and has squandered them.  Rather look to stash a 21 year old WR on the PS over a 26 year old Duke

 Valid point,  still hope he hangs on though,

I’m interested to see If Boetger can hold on (all the injuries are giving him opportunities) 

 

im also curious if any of RB’s (Murphy, Wade, Perry) can push Yeldon for the 4th spot (If they keep 4)

 

And then I’m interested to see if the supposed WR chart stays the same... i want to see the McCloud McKenzie battle up close. McCloud disappointed during games last year, while McKenzie did well. It’ll be interesting to see who does what- I don’t think that battle is completely over. 

 

Also curious what they do at DB. Wondering if Cam Lewis has a chance to make the team with Gaines hurt.

What's the deal with Vosean Joseph? How is he doing...not hearing much.

Definitely interested to see what Duke does. Also, Christian Wade, who will be on our PS. Not sure how much they will play him. Probably not until the fourth quarter. But, he is an incredible athlete. And also, this is a weird one: Garret McGhin. Diamond in the rough?

 

Plenty more, tbh. Really looking forward to this game, preseason though it may be...

Hoping Vosean Joseph rips it up on special teams and as a back up in preseason.

Me too. Not hearing much about him...I hope he gets it and tears it up.

Do you typically hear about 5th round picks a couple weeks into training camp? Most likely he'll play special teams for a couple years and be out of the league like 90% of 5th round picks, and there's nothing wrong with having him fill that role. anything more is a massive bonus.

Considering how much talent that he has, I was expecting more from him. Its early yet.

I bet Joseph's career goes just like Siran Neal's:

Year one: Real quiet, gets some special teams snaps throughout the season but not much else, is a total afterthought on defense.

Year two: Has a great training camp. Staff entrusts him with more responsibility and playing time. He becomes a contributor on defense

Also, he may eventually be the heir apparent to Lorenzo Alexander, but before THAT can happen, Corey Thompson (another second year youngster) has a thing or two to say.

Wyatt and Joseph with the second squad...and just to see Tyree toss one in a Bills uniform will give me goosebumps.

I got ahead of myself here. You are spot on if all goes well. That is how it will probably play out...exponential growth!

McCloud.  Cool name for a WR, and seems to have put in a lot of work over the offseason.  

 

Also interested to see who makes the final spot at DE.

SWEEEEEEENEY!!!

 

I don't think he qualifies as a "bubble" guy anymore!

In no particular order I have a keen interest in the following:

 

1)Duke Williams/Ray Ray McCloud - I think if we keep 6 WR's it's between these two players. McCloud has the leg up because he's a draft pick by this regime and is apparently looking real good in camp. But still think Duke Williams offers a completely different dynamic than any other WR on the roster because of his size and catch radius.

 

2) Connor McDermott  - with Ladrian Waddle now out of the picture for the swing tackle job, McDermott who has been a pet project of sorts is in a make or break situation this summer.

 

3) Cam Lewis - word on the street is that he's looking really good and McD loves him some late round/UDFA DB's to mold. Won't be surprised if Gaines is IR/cut and Lewis makes the team.

 

4) Ed Oliver - just want to see him dominate and crush a colts lineman.

 

5) McD - how much clapping will he do on the sidelines??

If he keeps this up, he won’t be.  If he sputters and others step up, he will be.  While his chances are looking solid, 3 weeks ago, he was an afterthought. It’s not September yet

Sweeney and Ray Ray are my two watches for sure.  Seems like word from camp has Ray Ray taking the final roster spot as the backup slot receiver to beasley.  Both Ray Ray and McKenzie had their fair share of mental lapses and drops last year so that'll probably be a good battle.  Also Levi and Kevin Johnson is something I want to keep an eye on.  Seems like Levi has been holding down the CB2 position (obviously not bubbles guys oops lol)
