Bold predictions - Bills training camp & roster


 Share

Recommended Posts

Training camp starts tomorrow and we're a month away from the Bills 53-man roster being set. Post your bold predictions here.

 

I'll start with two of my own:

 

1) After the obvious quartet of Diggs, Sanders, Beasley, and Davis, the last 2 WRs to make the team will be Hodgins and Stevenson. McKenzie will be a surprise cut.

 

2) Cody Ford will be traded for a 4th or 5th round pick near the end of training camp. Forrest Lamp will take his spot on the roster.

If it’s a fourth or fifth round pick I’d rather just hang on the Cody

 

No less than a third rounder

I have trouble finding a spot for Ford on the o-line. He isn't going to be a RT any time soon with Darryl Williams and Spencer Brown on the team. We didn't exactly miss him at G last year. I think Lamp fits our scheme and is a better pass protector than Ford, so if he stays healthy I think he will beat Ford in an open competition. At which point Ford will be expendable. And he isn't worth a 3rd to any team.

Camp will start with no sign of Josh Allen.

5 minutes after the official start time, Josh will appear over the top of the stadium flying onto the field in a red, white, and blue hang glider in full uniform. He'll land on the 50 yard line and yell, "LET'S GO!!!"

BOLD prediction:  Bills will play games!  They will win some and they will lose some.

 

I know - really going out on a limb there. 😉

 

Not sure how bold this is, but I think Dane Jackson will get the CB2 nod.  Oh and HappyDays - McKenzie ain't getting cut!

We almost let him walk in free agency. I think they're ready to live without him. Hodgins offers size and ball skills and has gotten some buzz this offseason. I predict Stevenson makes the team because Beane rarely cuts new draft picks and he can take on McKenzie's role. If Stevenson doesn't show anything in training camp then McKenzie is probably safe and they'll try and put Stevenson on the PS.

Fromm is traded.

Hodgens is a better than we thought so McKenzie is cut/traded.

Jerry Hughes is released early in camp because he lost a step. 

Singletary still is slow regardless of what his trainer said.

Hodgins is definitely an intriguing talent.  Personally I think they should keep 7 WRs given how pass happy they are likely to be again this season, but McKenzie is that handy gadget guy with quick feet, he's got a good shot at the returner job and Josh clearly feels comfortable with him.  That's a hard combo to just cut.  If Hodgins flat out outperforms in TC, maybe, but I just don't see it at this point.

I haven't seen Hodgins on the hoof or on the field.  Hence I view all the positive comments as hearsay.   Time will tell and the staff will make their decisions, I suspect McKenzie stays.  If Beasley continues to be  a distraction, he might hit the street, you never know.

At this stage it seems almost a bold prediction to claim McKenzie makes the team with so many people writing him off. 

 

For the third year in a row I will tell people he will make the team and for the third year in a row health permitting he will be here for the opener.

 

My bold prediction for things that happen between now and the season starting... I'd go:

 

The Bills trade Mitch Morse straight up for a starting corner.

Until this year I was firmly in the camp of McKenzie making the team. And I am still throwing it out there as a bold prediction, not something I am particularly confident about. I just think it is a spot they could use to get younger and cheaper at. It's dependent on Stevenson showing something in camp.

Getting buzz in offseason means people talking about him are buzzed.

Stevenson would have to win the return job and show he can do the jet motion stuff. Plus someone else would have to outplay McKenzie. I just don't see it this year any more than I saw it before

I can't say that I disagree with you but the fact that John Miller is still on an NFL roster tells me that Cody Ford may have some surprising value.  Ford has been banged up for a good part of his time in Buffalo and that may have had some impact on his game.  In addition, young players have a lot of trouble with zone blocking schemes and Ford really struggled with it.  I expect him to see a bunch of preseason playing time as an audition for a potential trade.  I do expect him to be gone before the start of the regular season unless there a bunch of o-line injuries.
