Duke William's (Should he become a TE)?

Recommended Posts

With our TE injury situation seems like we might need some recieving TE help at least until Kroft and others get healthy.  Duke has the size of a TE and skillset of a WR so it might be a good fit.  He had a good game against the second team unit tonight vs Carolina but in all likelihood he won't make our team as a WR.  I personally liked what I saw from him and thought he was one of our backup TE's when he caught that TD.  I hope we can keep his size and skillset that he brings to our team that we might be missing without him on the roster.

 

Go Bills!

There's no way he can learn the TE position and be an effective starter at the position in one month.

He’s a WR and should keep competing there, he had himself a game today and has been making some impressive catches in practice.  He’s starting to come on IMO, and I think he made the WR competition interesting tonight.

Why would a 6'2", 220 pound WR make a good TE? Bills list him at 6'3", but he's really 6'2".

 

He's simply not big enough to be a TE.

I see him listed as 6'2" 215 lb, why do people keep thinking he is this huge guy, like Kelvin Benjamin huge,(6'5" 245 lb), he's not close. TE are enormous and KB would have to put on 15-20 lbs to be a TE. Duke is a little bigger than average for a WR but tiny for a TE.

Who is Duke William and what possession of his should become a TE?

 

It's a foolish idea. He's trying to learn the NFL game as a wide receiver. There's literally no way he could change positions and become better than our existing TEs within a couple weeks. C'mon, man.

 

Unfortunately, he'll be cut.

Just a guess, but the rest of the WR group have been dubbed the Smurfs by no less than the Head Coach. What we saw on the TD catch is what we all -Team and fanbase alike- tantalizingly envisioned when we signed him. He simply hasn’t shown enough in a WR group begging for anyone to step up and make a name for themselves. Word out of Bills camp is he isn’t a good ‘practice player’, but shows up in games. That’s a dichotomy that doesn’t have a faithful following in pro sports <cue Allen Iverson>. 

 

I suspect the OP is just trying to find some way to get our tallest, strongest Receiver a way to make the team. Coach called him out/‘encouraged’ him this week and he appeared to respond. Final cutdown is 2weeks away. Sadly, I’m not liking his chances.

“Ravens got nothing on us!”  Such a move might be the NFL equivalent of “Hey!  Watch this!”

It was good to see him out there with Barkley. WRs playing exclusively with Tyree cant show there true potential.

No he should not change positions. That being said I hope the Bills keep him, his size sets him apart from the guys he’s competing against. None of those guys make that TD catch.

Wouldn't be shocked to see a trade this week with a somewhat log jam at WR and RB and even DE. Think Johnson makes the team at DE, so does Love get cut, or do you try and trade him or even Lawson?  Barring a spectacular season from him, doubt the Bills will pay what he thinks he's worth as a former 1st round pick even though he hasn't played like one.  There's threads her why the Bills should keep 6 WR, another for 5 RB, think there was even one for 5 TE due to the injuries.  Well you can pick one, maybe two of these spots, but somewhere else needs to suffer, so maybe make a trade to help.  Get help elsewhere, maybe punter! LOL
