Round 7: Lawrence Cager
The former Georgia Bulldog is another big wide receiver at 6’5″ and 220 pounds that could give the Bills the size they need at the position. Cager started his collegiate career at the University of Miami and spent four years there, however he missed the entire 2016 season due to a knee injury.
He then transferred to the University of Georgia and started to show some flashes with a five game stretch where he averaged 5.4 receptions, 82.6 receiving yards and had three touchdowns during that time. However, he suffered an ankle injury that cost him five games.
Similarly with some of these other big wide receivers, he doesn’t have great quickness and needs some time to get up to full speed. The durability concern is another one that NFL teams would need to determine how much impact that has on their opinion of Cager.
However, for the Buffalo Bills, at this point in the NFL Draft he is worth a flyer with his size and the fact that he won’t necessarily be asked to contribute much in 2020. He could be a nice developmental prospect with an eye towards 2021.
