The Buffalo Bills are definitely a team that has struggled and is definitely trying to revamp its’ team to try and contend in the AFC East. They let go Ryan Fitzpatrick this off-season and upgraded to Kevin Kolb, which I really wouldn’t consider an upgrade but I guess they do. The Bills have a lot oppositions they need to address in a few weeks when it’s the NFL Draft but they do have 6 draft picks that will help them upgrade their team. Because of their very poor season, the Bills have the 8th pick and if they draft a true play-maker on offense or defense that can really help Kevin Kolb or maybe even draft Geno Smith if he drops that far.
There are a number of different moves they can make with that #8 pick, but If Smith is there they would be foolish not to take him. They haven’t had a good QB in quite sometime and he potentially can help them right away.
The Perfect Storm:
The Bills are “okay” at the wide receiver position, but will definitely upgrade if they find the right guy in the later rounds of the draft. This is where Marquess Wilson can definitely find a landing spot for him, he may not be the #1 option now, but he can definitely upgrade their offense if he’s willing to work hard enough. That is the very issue that is scaring team away from Wilson, but one team is going to be interested in his services and give him that chance he deserves because of his talent and potential.
Likelihood Wilson Gets Drafted by the Bills:
C+ (4th Round)
I’m not totally sure If the Bills are looking into upgrading the wide receiver position, but if they believe Wilson is the right fit don’t be too surprised if it ends up happening.
