The Buffalo Bills should draft wide receiver Cedric Tillman

If Buffalo wanted to go after a rookie with size, instead of trading for a veteran like Evans, they could look at Tennessee’s Cedric Tillman. The 6-foot-3 Volunteer standout comes into the draft with less hype than his teammate, Jaylin Hyatt, but could wind up being an even better pro.

Tillman has decent speed, running a 4.54 in his 40-yard dash, and good enough athleticism everywhere else (a 37-inch vertical, 10-foot-8-inch broad jump). He is one of those prospects with good size and speed who does a lot of things well. He’s a very well-rounded rookie prospect, but what entices me most about him is his level of competitiveness.

This is a kid who wants to win every down, every route, no matter what. If he’s given the opportunity to make a big play, he relishes that. He comes up big when it matters most, as evidenced by his monstrous performances against both Alabama and Georgia (17 catches for 352 yards and two touchdowns).

Buffalo would be getting a rookie who plays with toughness, physicality and could come in right away and compete for the WR2 job. Most likely, he would win it.
