Mike Evans visiting Bills on Tuesday

AP

If you’re a regular reader of this site, you’ve noticed that we have started rolling out draft previews for each of the 32 teams in the league this week.

The series proceeds in the same order as the first round of the draft, which means we haven’t gotten to the Bills yet. If you’re averse to spoilers, turn away now because we’re about to reveal one of the positions of need that will be discussed when that entry is published.

It’s wide receiver and we’re spilling the beans a bit early because the Bills are spending some time Tuesday with Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans. Evans is expected to be the second receiver off the board after Clemson’s Sammy Watkins and Watkins will be off the board well before the Bills pick unless Buffalo orchestrates a trade that lands them higher in the order.

Evans may not make it to No. 9 either, but he and tight end Eric Ebron are both potential additions with the ninth overall pick that would help quarterback E.J. Manuel in his second season with the team.

The Bills also announced that they met with USC center Marcus Martin and Georgia Southern running back Jerick McKinnon on Tuesday.

  1. Would be a shame to see a talent like him wasted on a team. Jags, Raiders, Bills, Browns, Vikes or Bucs would all be poor locations imo. Weak franchises with bad or non-existent ownership.

  2. He’s definitely a difference maker and huge threat in the red zone. Some of the catches he mad last year in traffic were insane… Check out his TD catch against Ole’ Miss… Went up in a group of 3 or 4 defenders and just made the ball his. Calvin Johnsonesque in that regard…

  3. People who say Buffalo is a “weak” franchise clearly has no clue how to evaluate football talent.

    They came in last year with rookie players all over the field, and a completely rookie coaching staff. They finished #2 in the NFL in rushing…as well as sacks and interceptions, placing them 7th in overall defense. That’s a lot of skill. If their rookie QB was healthy all year, they would have probably made the playoffs.

    There is no better WR corp in the NFL for him to join, than Buffalo with Stevie Johnson, Mike Williams, Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin, TJ Graham and Ramses Barden. That’s a ton of talent in the WR room for Evans to work with.

    Also, you don’t take a RT in the top-10…they have Cordy Glenn at LT and he has played at a pro-bowl level, there is no need to even contemplate moving him.

    Mike Evans should be their 1st pick, Austin Seferian-Jenkins should be the 2nd pick.
