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.
