He brings an element to this offense that the Buffalo Bills haven’t had recently
The Buffalo Bills have done a lot to assist Josh Allen’s development, but they have yet to maximize their downfield passing game. Josh has made it work with Gabriel Davis, Emmanuel Sanders, and John Brown, but there hasn’t been a genuine deep threat since the departure of Robert Foster. The 75-yard touchdown pass from Josh Allen to Gabriel Davis in last year’s playoff game was a think of beauty, and I would like to see the Bills air it out even more.
Between his ability to get open deep down the field and his ability to turn an eight-yard slant into a 70-yard touchdown, Williams can bring the Buffalo Bills something this offense has been missing for the last few years. Cole Beasley has been a security blanket for Josh Allen, but his yards after catch ability was all but gone this past season. Williams’s break-away speed will add effortless yardage to Josh Allen’s stat line.
I noticed watching the Alabama film that Williams is a route technician. Williams does a great job setting up his deep routes by working the middle of the field at the beginning of the game. Then, once the safeties start to come up, Williams hits them with a perfectly timed double move, and the next thing you know, they are chasing him down the field.
