NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock was asked by SI.com’s Monday Morning QB staff what NFL team he would pick as his sleeper club this season. His answer was the Bills.

In Buffalo there’s some excitement. A year ago, people didn’t understand that they were a tough mismatch,” said Mayock. “Forget the quarterback for a second. Scott Chandler is a better tight end than people think—especially in the red zone. Stevie Johnson is a mismatch out wide. C.J. Spiller had a great year last season. They’re a tough matchup. Now you bring in those two wide receivers they drafted—Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin. One is vertical guy [Goodwin], and the other is a great route runner [Woods]. More weapons. EJ Manuel looked really good when I visited their camp. If he can function behind their offensive line—it’s not great, but it’s pretty good—if he can get the ball distributed they’re going to be a better team than people think.”

Mayock’s three questions interview appeared on Monday Morning QB this week.
