Buffalo Bills Offseason Team Needs – TSJ Sports

The Buffalo Bills must infuse talent into the offense side of the ball. A decent receiver to compliment Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods would be beneficial to their success going forward

The Buffalo Bills are a underachieving team that has solid talent at every position. What is lacking is consistent execution and passion. Rex Ryan has been relieved of his duties as head coach and newly-appointed offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn steps in as the interim head coach. Lynn has helped to revive the left-for-dead Bills on the offensive side of the ball.

What is needed is a second receiving options to complement star receiver Sammy Watkins, who has missed more than 8 games this season. Robert Woods is a great number three receiver and tight end Charles Clay is decent but oft-injured. Clay also reportedly has a degenerative knee issue but it’s also hear-say, as there was debate about the validity of said claims of Dolphins’ Executive Vice President Mike Tannenbaum.

The Bills could pluck another Clemson Tiger standout receiver in Mike Williams, who is projected to be the first receiver taken off the board in the 2017 NFL Draft. Williams is a polished route runner who has size and good body control in and out of his cuts. He has a knack for making back shoulder catches and winning contested situations. I liken Williams to a number 1-B / potential 1- type lead receiver.

After watching game footage of many of the college receivers entering the draft, there’s one player that would thrive immediately for Buffalo. Baylor’s K.D. Cannon is that player. He could provide a vertical threat to open up that office. Tyrod Taylor has a great deep ball and giving him another deep threat will boost them up a bit in the hierarchy of the AFC East. Cannon caught 87 passes for 1,215 yards and 13 touchdowns in 12 games this season. At 5’11, 170, he reminds me a lot of former University of Miami stand-out Santana Moss, who ran through teams on the collegiate level and moved onto the NFL with class to become a potential NFL Hall of Famer (732 receptions, 10,283 yards and 66 career touchdowns in 14 years).
