ESPN NFL draft analyst Todd McShay unveiled his second mock draft and at 10th overall he went with a big wideout for Buffalo.
McShay had the Bills getting Clemson WR Mike Williams, recognizing the potential player losses that position could incur through free agency this offseason. Such a scenario would pair two former Clemson playmakers outside with Williams and Watkins. Here was his assessment on the pick.
10 – Buffalo Bills, 7-9
Mike Williams, WR, Clemson
Mitch Trubisky or DeShone Kizer could be in play here, depending on what happens with Tyrod Taylor. But the Bills have four WRs hitting free agency and would fill an immediate void with Williams. The Clemson standout has a good size-speed combination and shows the ability to create late separation when the ball is in the air.
It’s a pick that certainly makes sense in light of the potential losses at receiver in free agency. While there’s no debating that the Bills will have a need at cornerback and safety, the draft is deep at those two positions, so wide receiver could be a strong consideration early in the 2017 draft for Buffalo.
