Buffalo Bills: 2017 NFL Combine Players To Watch

“I know what I’m looking for, I know what a winner looks like, I know what it tastes like. I’ve been around a winner and that’s what I plan on bringing here”- Those were the words from Sean McDermott the Bills new head coach. McDermott and his staff will be hope to find a winner next week in Indianapolis at the 2017 NFL Combine. Tyrod Taylor appears to be on his way out of Buffalo and that creates a hole at the starting quarterback position. The offense can use a dynamic and reliable wide receiver to improve the passing game. The defense has a huge hole at safety with the uncertainty about Aaron Williams and the inconsistent play from Corey Graham. The Bills have the 10th overall pick and will have the opportunity to draft an impact player.

Here are some possible winners the Bills can select at # 10:


Deshaun Watson- QB Clemson

New head coach Sean McDermott saw a dual threat quarterback win the most valuable player award while he was the defensive coordinator in Carolina. Now the head coach of the Bills, he would love to see his quarterback win that same award. With the unlikely resigning of Tyrod Taylor, McDermott can select the two time Heisman finalist Deshaun Watson with the 10th overall pick to be the Bills starting quarterback. Watson is a 6 foot 3 209 pound elusive dual threat quarterback with clutch and winning intangibles that brought Clemson a national championship. The star from Clemson had a monster season in 2016 completing 67-percent of his passes for 4,593 yards, throwing 41 touchdowns to 17 interceptions, and running for 629 yards that included 9 touchdowns. The Bills should be ecstatic that Watson is participating in all events next week at the combine.


Corey Davis- WR Western Michigan

The best wide receiver that will be at Indianapolis isn’t named Mike Williams, his name is Corey Davis. Davis is a 6 foot 3 215 pound explosive wide receiver. Davis is the all-time leader in collegiate football receiving yards (5,285). He was highly productive for the Broncos over his career. Davis had over 1,400 receiving yards for three straight seasons. Davis can create separation due to his elusiveness. He also has great balance that allows him to pickup yards after the catch. Davis best attribute is him being a phenomenal route runner. He can run every route from the outside and the slot, on both sides of the field. Davis would be perfect alongside Sammy Watkins and will elevate the Bills receiving core. The question the Bills have to answer is, can Corey Davis dominate in the AFC East like he did at Western Michigan.

Jamal Adams- S LSU

The Bills have a huge hole at their starting safety position and must fill it this offseason to compete in the AFC East. Jamal Adams from LSU might be their best option to do just that. The 6 foot 1 213 pound safety  plays with his hair on fire. Adams has insane physical talent and has commanding leadership attributes . He plays with intense physicality in run support. He also has the athleticism to consistently make plays in coverage. Adams is your ideal ball hawk at safety. Adams had 5 interceptions and 2 recovered fumbles over last two seasons at LSU. He also was highly productive on special teams making 21 tackles and had no penalties in 2016. Sean McDermott will fall in love with Adams next week in Indianapolis.
