Antoine Winfield Jr (safety)— potential pick?

Recommended Posts

Let me preface this with I have no real knowledge of anything related to the draft beyond maybe the top handful of prospects. 
 

I just stumbled upon a mock draft that had Antoine Winfield, Jr. going to a team right around the Bills’ second round pick. First off, I had no idea that AW’s son is an NFL prospect. Second, I am now feeling old. Third, any chance we take him?

 

He seems like a great player and great kid, and it would be awesome to have AW jr. as a Bill!! 
 

One other thing— I thought the quote by AW Sr. In the below article was interesting. Talked about how he took his game to another level when he went to Minnesota.

I do believe they met with him and I do think they are looking for a third safety upgrade

His Dad was one of my favorite Bills ever.  
 

I don’t see safety as a pressing need unless they are looking to cut cost at the position next year, but Winfield could be in the conversation in the 2nd.

He does.  He also played some CB at Minnesota if I remember correctly, so has extra versatility.

Usually hate safety picks but this would be one I would fully endorse!

from what I read, he doubles as a Safety and nickel CB— so would provide a lot of flexibility and depth. 
 

I will say that when I watch the games, I am always terrified of Hyde or Poyer getting injured (and White too). But the safeties really hold our entire defense together.

We have to take him. He's a legacy.

You know McDermott has his eye on him. I'm all for it. Hyde and Poyer are both pushing 30.

Would be great value if he’s still there.

Yup. Dude just knows how to play safety.  I doubt he makes it to 54, but he has had some injury issues so you never know.

Neither is likely to be available.
