Earlier we looked at both Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans. Both talented receivers that will bring their own dimension to the Buffalo Bills, should they get drafted.
Sammy Watkins brings speed and long, smooth strides that can get off the line quickly and reach top speed in a matter of strides. Watkins has the foot work as well that a wide receiver would like. He is able to play both out wide as well as i the slot. Watkins falls short when it comes to his size. He is only 6’1″ which isn’t terrible but for a team like the Bills looking to go big or go home, he is not quite there. He is not a physical receiver either and will not break out of many tacklers.
As for Mike Evans, there is almost a contrasting style to his receiving that he will provide the team that decides to make a move on him. Evans stands 6’5″ and is that physical receiver that the Bills are looking for. He will break tacklers and push defenders around. Where Evans lacks is the speed off the line. He has those long strides, but top speed is not going to beat anyone down the field. He is no where near a Marquise Goodwin. But then again, the Bills have that deep threat don’t they. Evans footwork is also not great but is good enough for a top level receiver.
Who would you pick? If it were your choice, which wide receiver do you bring on to the Buffalo Bills?
