Chris Brown article on How draft prospect WR see the Bills

Recommended Posts

Some good stuff in here.

 

https://www.buffalobills.com/news/why-wide-receiver-draft-prospects-like-what-they-see-from-the-buffalo-bills

 

-Ruggs of course mentioning his Daboll connection through 'Bama

-Jefferson has some Tre' White luuuuv

-Higgins thinks he'd be fine with B'lo because Tennessee gets cold too 😂

"Clemson receiver Tee Higgins, who is one of the tallest receivers in the class, is a favorite to head to Buffalo on several mock drafts. Higgins likes what he sees in the toughness of the Bills, plus the cold doesn't scare him. "It's a playoff team," Higgins said. "It's real cold up there, but I'm from Tennessee and it gets cold up in Tennessee. It's just a team that's hungry and you can tell they're pushing for a Super Bowl really soon."
(I like the way this guy thinks, though Clemson players kinda make me nervous after Spiller and Sammy Watson)

-Viska Shenault plans to be a Star:

"I see myself being a star, honestly," Shenault explained. "I think I would be able to open up more space and just be able to do things that the other receivers don't do just as far as my size and other things."

Sheanult isn't a stranger to Josh Allen, explaining he watched Allen in the playoff game against the Houston Texans.

"I think he's great," Shenault said. "I was watching his playoff game. I think he's a dog. I think he makes things happen so it would be great to play with a quarterback like that."

Ruggs or Shenault.  I'd be ecstatic with either one, they are both the best YAC, take it to the house from anywhere on the field prospects in this years draft.  That's what we need.

This draft is going to be, first, sooooooo long since we have to wait to pick at 22 (probably) and to see which direction they go. Given the WR depth, I would not be unhappy if they went OL or DE in the first (with FA still in play). 
 

Whoever we get, for the first time since the mid-90’s, I feel as though this organization has its head screwed on straight. Comfort. 😃

Jerry Butler played WR at Clemson.  He was an excellent Bill for a long time.

Jerry Butler was excellent- if he hadnt gotten hurt he would have had an even better career.

I have no bias against Clemson, but WTF does a player from 40 years ago have to do with players at Clemson now, that are from a completely different coaching, recruiting, etc. situation?

They are likely being asked about it, not just coming up with it on their own.

It's a welcome change hearing top prospects say, I'd really like being a part of a "playoff" team like the Buffalo Bills.

It’s good to see that these young guys can see the potential on this team, specially Higgins i like what he said ;)

 

I don’t know about you guys, but i have mix feelings about the draft one part of me wants us to trade up and get a top receiver like Jeudy or Ceedee Lamb the other part tell me that the others guys could succeed very well also in the league and you don’t have to give up anything...!

Any prospect that says Josh Allen "is a dog"....you want THAT guy on your team

 

NFL total access had Shenault ranked number 5 receiver in the class and said he makes big boy catches which i think Josh needs to get his completions up. Also read that his player comp was Saquan Barkley, sign me up for that in the open field !!

Oh, I see we like Pro Football Focus today. Here's a chart comparing the WRs based on PFF's numbers as well as the important Combine numbers we have so far.
