2020 Draft Position and Potential Targets

Recommended Posts

The past 3 weeks have had all of us questioning this team, no doubt. I’m going to say we take care of bitness against the Phins, Broncos, Jets and Steelers to finish 10-6 and make the playoffs for the first time in Josh Allen’s career.

 

I won’t try and predict playoff success, but let’s assume we’re drafting somewhere in the 20-28 range. Most would agree the Bills need help at multiple positions, and WR would be near the top of that list. My choice would be Tyler Johnson from Minnesota.

 

Last year, I was high on Terry McLaurin. Experienced guy with excellent separation and route running ability. These types of guys have proven over and over to be incredibly valuable. The athletic freaks are much harder to predict, and much more dangerous to pick. A guy like Johnson seems to be safer and have almost as high of a ceiling while also having a far higher floor. Check out the article below that outlines some of his abilities and highlight plays. He’s the real deal.
 

GO BILLS!

At the moment I would think Johnson is a day 2 guy but he could sneak into the 2nd half of day 1.

Bills need a large man vs man go get the ball WR and he could be definitely worth a look thanks for sharing

This is #1 on my wish list for this offseason.

Your description of Tyler sounds similar to the descriptions of Zay Jones when he was drafted. I'm not saying this as a bash on Jones, but I don't think its the kind of WR we need. We need a guy with an exceptional catch radius, and high pointing ability. I have more trepidation with guys who are described as "NFL ready" than I do with guys described as "athletic freaks." I feel like I could get behind an athletic freak.

The big question is whether our team can identify the right WR. 

There is also the question of BPA. I know that WR is a need. But, it's not our only need. Beane, and company have been pretty good about drafting BPA, with our needs in mind. It's very hard to predict who BPA is at the middle of the board, where we will certainly be. But, if there's a better edge rusher than WR, that's what we're going to get.

My draft crushes are Tee Higgins and CeeDee Lamb. I really think we will be too far down for Lamb, so Higgins is my guy. He’s 6’4” and has a championship pedigree. Exactly what Allen needs opposite Brown.

CeeDee Lamb would be my choice as well. The Bills have equal need of an edge rusher and wide receiver, it will be interesting to see how they fill these needs, whether through the draft or free agency or both.

Obviously another WR is needed, an elite one at that. Wouldn’t mind a RT and bumping Ford into LG, leave Feliciano in at RG. Also, we’ll need another CB and a few LBs. For a 6-3 team I see some glaring weaknesses.

Tee Higgins is my guy as well.  Exactly what Allen needs in a boundary WR.

Draft a WR with the #1 overall? Seriously? And who's throwing to this paragon? The pull-it-out-your-ass wins are over and I suspect the Bills to be drafting between 8-12. First overall pick has to be a QB.

Spain has been pretty good, no?  I don’t think o-line is a pressing offseason need.  JMO.

I’m not a big believer in Spain, I’d rather put Ford at LG and bring in a dominant RT.

 

Dawkins-Ford-Morse-Feliciano-New guy

 

By the way, a quality corner is a huge need as well.

Agreed about CB being a need, but I think you’re writing off Ford at RG a little too quickly.  He is a rookie.

 

I have the offseason needs as follows:

 

1. Edge 

2. WR

3. LB (is Edmunds better suited for SOLB?)

4. CB

5. DT

Will be working on my Christmas list for Santa for another month.

 

Then be busy with the Holidays through the New Year.

 

After that I'll give this matter some thought.

I think they might be moving Edmunds to Alexander's spot. Vosean Joseph would move into that middle spot.

I’d prefer a WR round 1, someone with star power. I think a game breaker there fixes our offense.
 

The reason why I wouldn’t put Ford at RG is because Feliciano has proven to be an above average starter. I think you leave him there. Matter of fact I think Feliciano should be extended in the offseason.

 

LB to me is a big issue. Edmunds and Milano have serious potential but there’s nobody behind them.
 

Corner is getting our defense abused. Levi is getting beat like a drum and I think a shutdown corner opposite of Tre turns our defense into a machine.

 

As far as DE goes. I think Murphy needs to go. Shaq is a guy I’d bring back as a rotational piece so long as it doesn’t cost much. Darryl Johnson I’m convinced is a potential gem. He could be a starter at LE and we still got Hughes at RE.

 

I think if the draft were tomorrow I’d go:

 

1. WR

2. CB

3. RT

4. LB

5. DE

 

We also have some scratch to play around with in free agency and we can move up a few times with ease into RDs 2-3.

Spain has been good. After being up and down the first 5 weeks he has really found a good consistent level of performance. 

 

One year contract though. I suspect it will cost more to sign him next year.

Wouldn't mind A stud MLBer to get Edmunds out of that spot.  That experiment isn’t going too well

Theres so many good WR’s in this class, value Might be for an Edge in rd 1 and WR in two. 

 

Leave it to the Bills to draft a DL in a WR heavy draft <_<

 

We already made that mistake this past year. Don't make it again.

I want a number 1 wide receiver......

 

If we can find Johnson in the late rounds like we did.....we can find a pass rusher in round 2.....LETS GET JOSH ALLEN A NUMBER ONE WIDE RECIEVER
