Kevin Elliott is a wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills who has size, talent and enough upside to make the final 53 man roster in August. Elliott is 6-foot-3 and weighs 215 pounds so he provides much needed size to a smaller but incredibly fast wide receiver corps in Western New York. He was an undrafted wide receiver out of Florida A&M in 2012; however he had enough skills where he likely should have been drafted.
In last year’s training camp, Kevin Elliott was showing some great promise to make the team until he tore his left ACL in the second week of the pre-season against the Minnesota Vikings and all of a sudden his season was ended. (The picture above shows it well) biggest problem he faces making the final roster is the skill level above him is so great between Mike Williams, Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin that there are eight wide receivers people fighting for one, maybe two roster spots this year.
Elliott caught 10 passes for 108 yards as a 2012 rookie as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars.If Kevin Elliott in fact makes the team, his numbers will minimally increase to say the least so maybe he will get 10 catches, 150 yards and a touchdown reception if the offense is near the goal line. He will likely have to contribute on special teams on returns by being a lead blocker for whomever is returning no matter if it’s C.J. Spiller or Leodis McKelvin and be a great gunner on punt returns and pin returners down by not allowing any long returns and force fair catches.
All and all, it should be interesting to see what if anything Kevin Elliott does in 2014 for the Buffalo Bills. What do you think he will do, leave a comment below so we can discuss it further!
