As Bills rookie minicamp is now in full swing all eyes are sure to be on EJ Manuel. Being the Bills first QB taken this high in the draft in some time it would be excepted. I on the other hand will be taking a look at the Bills 2nd round selection WR Robert Woods out of USC.
A month ago Bills fans were wondering what they were going to do at the wide receiver position. Cutting ties with the likes of David Nelson and Donald Jones, the Bills definitely had an opening on the field. When the Bills selected Woods I thought it would be perfect fit for this team. Looking at prior stats, how he plays and what he can bring to this team it was a no brainer.
Now back to the minicamp Woods in some people’s eyes had the best day if people were grading performances. You can take that how you want because you have to remember EJ Manuel is in the building. Reading different pieces it’s been said that he consistently got open in his routes and had great starting day. Also Woods has people thinking he could be the Bills one guy in the draft that could come in a start/compete from day 1.
Woods brings so much to the position the Bills I believe now have their guy alongside Stevie Johnson. His willingness to go over the middle, downfield blocking and also can run the deep routes gives this team a great weapon. He has always produced with good numbers at USC and let’s hope it continues.
With this minicamp going into it second day this is where it all starts. The playbook (more in depth), getting familiar with the facilities and getting acclimated with the staff are all part of the process. Hopefully all is a smooth transition and progression is made whenever possible. Any players you’re interested in seeing?
