Here's a great link breaking down the top WR prospects in this year's draft:

Who do you like?

Good topic, but this link leads to a page last updated in July of 2019.  It misses a season of information.  That said Juedy appears to be the best, but long gone by the time the Bills pick.  I like Pittman from USC in round 2 or 3.  Shenault is certainly a good round 1 candidate, but will he be there?

I love that everyone is sleeping on Chase Claypool. I hope every executive is as well, except for ours. He is 6'5" just like Mike Evans, has the same exact body type as Mike Evans, will put up similar numbers at the combine as Mike Evans, and is one of the most underrated WR prospects in this draft. He has excellent body control, can jump over defenders to highpoint the ball, has excellent hands, runs a solid route tree for a guy his size, has deceptive speed, and is good with the ball in his hands after the catch for a big guy. 

Yup! Guy is a monster. I'm hoping the whole NFL sleeps on this guy and we can grab him with a later pick. After combine i'm sure his stock will jump up a ton though. Hes going to put up huge numbers.

 I've seen some sources list Pittman as a late 1st round pick. The combine is going to be big for him to prove he has NFL speed.

I know he hasn't declared yet, but I expect Justin Jefferson to move up the charts if he does. I know he is a slot receiver, but damn, he is a good one.

With every top prospect over 6' we really cant go wrong.

 

I dont think we'll have a shot at Jeudy or Lamb since we're picking at 22.

 

I wouldnt mind Shenault at 22, and another WR in the 4th or so. Desperately need to find hungry playmakers to put around Josh.

I would take Jeudy, Lamb, or Shenault in the 1st round, in that order. Assuming they're all gone by our pick, I'd take an edge rusher instead. IMO Tee Higgins will be overdrafted. I'd take someone like Collin Johnson or Michael Pittman on day 2.

Love, love Claypool!  He also dealt with his sister committing suicide and is from Canada.  Seems like a really mature guy and would be a perfect addition to our receiving core.

He’s a baller and another perfect complement.

He better declare after OBJ handed him that $$$ on camera last night for the world to see. :lol:

 

Edit:

LSU is claiming OBJ was handing out "fake" money. :lol: Yeah, I bet.

Double down.  Take Shenault in Round 1.

 

Comeback with another in the later rounds

That worked when took James Hardy and Stevie Johnson in 2008 as well as Chris Burkett and Andre Reed in 1985.

With only 2 true NFL quality WRs on roster they should absolutely double down in draft and likely sign one in UFA.

they also said he was paying market value for the Jerseys. Now that NCAA says players can make money off their likeness. 
 

either way of course he is declaring.

...didn't see the game, but tough night stat wise vs LSU?...…...

Higgins reminds me of James Lofton, 

 

Trevor Lawrence had a tough night, so kinda goes with the territory

 

Clemson had a tough night trying to keep pace with the run away freight train Burrows and co.

 

Higgins showed his toughness

 

Get er done Beane man

I have to agree that Shenault has flexibility to run go routes, the route tree, bubble screens, wildcat and jet sweeps.  A faster Anquin Boldin sounds good to me!

 

Hes the guy Cordarelle Paterson was supposed to be.

Given how they have drafted the last 3 years, they will most likely go O and D first 2 picks. Probably WR and Edge in either order. WR,WR,RB would be nuts but I sure wouldn't hate it. lol

Sporting News has him going to the Bills with their first round pick. Not happening IMO but this is a crazy WR draft and even looking only at the headliners (and ignoring the many "diamond in the rough" prospects, like Claypool) you know some will fall to the mid to later rounds. I could see a guy like Colin Johnson possibly being there when we pick in the fourth (not that I would necessarily take him). Question for Beane regarding priorities and how to handle them: since this is such a great WR class do you pick one earlier or bank on getting a very good one (or 2) later in the draft after addressing needs from other position groups where the better talent is clearly more towards the top of the draft. I guess it all depends on their board and how things develop on draft night.

I liked him a lot early season, but the more i've watched him this year in big games the more im scared. He disappears and his slender build also has me afraid of injuries at next level. Hes not a speed guy so needs to use his body to be physical and make contested catches, but i just cant see him out muscling a true physical cover corner.

Echoing what I said in the game thread... Every time I watched a Clemson game Ross was the WR that made an impression. Go back to Higgins TD run and look at Ross’ block. That kid is always grinding.

Stop it


In seriousness, this regime is going to be disciplined and go BPA. I would expect they will not go for a receiver if they have a great player at another position at the top of their

board.

He was banged up late in the year and was physically abused by OSU and LSU DB's, where he had little impact. I'd stay away from him.

This draft has got to be about helping Allen at the WR, TE position, or big down hill runner at RB, (with good hands)

 

If I'm Beane I'm addressing all 3 in that order...

 

even If its a bit of a reach IMO.

 

Higgins...

Quintez Cephus from Wisconsin is my sleeper. I know he has serious off field issues, but he is a massive WR but an amazing hands catcher.

I thought he was cleared, no?
