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

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. 

 

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.

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.

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?

Would love if Shenault somehow fell to 22. I would even be on board with trading up a few spots to land him.

Looks like we have an early entry into "UDFA Fan Favorite" for this year!

 

Da'Rick, Move on over!

It's incredible to me that Jefferson doesn't even make the top 15....Jefferson this year will be last year's McLaurin. His polish, quickness, good speed and ability to make Defenders miss while running a wide slate of routes. He's also 6-3 and has shown he can make all sorts of plays on the ball. Just in the Nat. Champ game last night his fluidity and his ability to change direction on a dime were superb. Give me Jefferson in the 2nd all day and then another WR in the 4th, like Claypool if he lasts that long.

Higgins is a monster.   
 

Refs are garbage and robbed him of long td reception with bogus OPI. 
 

Id be thrilled to add Higgins, Shenault, or the Bama guys.

What about Randy Moss's son as a TE option?

Similar sized to Knox at 6-3 249# not sure he adds much to this team but a new name.

Seems to have much better hands and more playing time and experience than Knox.

I'd love for the Shenault supporters to share with me what it is they love about him so much.

I admittedly haven't watched him all that much, but everyone seems to say that his best traits are his run-after-catch ability and his versatility, that he can play outside, slot, and in the backfield. Well, I've seen those types of players in the NFL before: Percy Harvin, Cordarelle Patterson, Sammy Watkins. I don't want a 'tweener who does most of his damage AFTER he catches the ball. I want a guy who does his damage by running sick routes and getting open and high-pointing jump balls and scoring receiving touchdowns. A player like Shenault sounds all good and well for a team that already HAS dominant outside receivers -- the Bills do not.

Can Shenault be a true number 1 receiver in the NFL? Or is he a guy you have to scheme up and figure out creative ways to get the ball in his hands? I want a true wide receiver that can dominate AS A WIDE RECEIVER. Is Shenault that?

As I said, I haven't watched him a ton. I'm mostly going off the scouting reports I've read and the discussion of him by various draft analysts and by fans who want the Bills to draft him. What am I missing with this guy?

I was thinking it was because he hasn’t declared yet, but I could be wrong.
