Matt Miller@BR - Latest Buzz for every team

Recommended Posts

Bills snippets:

 

Buffalo  Like the Eagles, the Bills need wide receivers. Tee Higgins would be a dream here to give Josh Allen a bigger target and someone to stretch the field vertically. In Round 3, if a receiver hasn't been drafted, big ones like Bryan Edwards and Donovan Peoples-Jones are names I've heard.

 

Stick to Football is in Indianapolis this week. We are hosting Sean McDermott (Buffalo Bills), Mike Vrabel (Tennessee Titans) and Matt Bowen (ESPN) live from radio row.

Notes from other teams ahead of the Bills could inform some trade options or necessities.  Lots of teams need WRs and Edge players.  Edge is not a good position in this draft after Young so I could see some massive overpayment to free agents - especially with the cap expected to jump up with the new CBA.

For some reason Higgins just doesn’t do it for me...I have no basis or reasoning for it...

I don’t think Higgins is a fit at all. I know he’s got the size aspect, but he’s always dinged up. A lot of missed time within games, and someone on WGR, some draft guy, said he’s heard Higgins isn’t exactly the best locker room guy. Also the fact the Bills didn’t scout Clemson in person until the championship (where they also scouted LSU), tells me they’re not very interested.

Higgins is a big radius target who gets separation that Allen would love. I would be ecstatic if we snagged him.

Or they just know what they are getting with him already and are looking to hide their interest hoping he falls to us. 

 

I'm not worried about the injuries too much as we have one of the top if not best medical and weight room combos in the league which should help lessen those injury issues. 

 

As for being a locker room guy. I'm not sure that should matter. We already have leaders set up in the room on o and d. I think we'd be fine.

What? Higgins biggest flaw is easily his lack of separation.

It's not really about leaders being present or being able to handle tough locker room guys, its about drafting guys who do not have that problem so they will in turn keep the other guys honest on their own. If you can draft  a guy without the mental warts, you do it. Especially for the city we're in. As for the discussion on Mental Warts Vs Physical Talent....at the end of the day you have to decide whether or not 1 makes up for the other... especially with the Divas in this league lately.

It’s the silent “ee” in his first name.

He’s actually over 2 inches shorter, but who’s counting?

Idk I’d personally take Jefferson, Mims, Reagor and Pittman all above Higgins

Pittman? Geez.

Yawn.   The national narrative is getting stale.

 

They keep slotting "big" possession-type WRs to the Bills--when Beane has repeated said the team needs a dynamic playmaker a'la Tyreek Hill who can score quickly / do big chunk plays.

I have Jefferson ahead of Higgins personally, but they don't really fill the same hole. Jefferson is a projection out wide; he was mainly utilized as a big slot in college. As we learned from Zay, it's not always easy to transition out wide. Higgins is already ready to line up out wide on Day 1.

Solid 40 and a great 3-cone show he has the agility to run all the routes. Plays all 4 phases of special teams, and his catch rate was something ridiculous like 86% for his career. He’s huge and not only big but physically imposing as well. 
 

Higgins is tall but slender. He worries me in a lot of ways.

I like Mims from Baylor.  Big guy, fast.  Likely available in Rd. 2.   Huge catch radius.

and getting dinged up and limited in his route tree and has the dropsies every now and then. There are better prospects I would take instead of him in RD2, he not a #22 or RD1 guy for me
