ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay released his Top 5 draft class list and though Buffalo did not make the top 5, they did get notable billing as well as some interesting comments related to EJ Manuel’s knee injury.
McShay ranked his top five as follows.
2. Green Bay
3. NY Jets
Buffalo was listed in his honorable mention category. Here’s what McShay wrote.
Buffalo Bills: If EJ Manuel hadn’t gotten hurt and was able to lead the Bills to a couple of more wins, Buffalo could easily have the top-rated rookie class. But Bills fans still have to be pleased with the results. They could wind up with a starting QB, a pair of impact WRs in Robert Woods and Marquise Goodman and a star at LB in Kiko Alonso. A second-rounder, Alonso immediately emerged as a high-impact performer. His instincts, quickness, hands and high-revving motor all stand out on tape. Ultimately, the success of this class will depend upon Manuel’s durability and development.
