Although the Buffalo Bills acquired No. 2 wide receiver Mike Williams from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a mere sixth-round pick, they could very well draft a top-notch wide receiver with the ninth overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Texas A&M Aggies product Mike Evans is generally regarded as the second-best WR in the class behind Sammy Watkins, and he, Watkins, Odell Beckham Jr., and Marqise Lee are four wideouts who have a strong chance at being No. 1 WRs in the NFL.
The Bills already have a No. 1 wide receiver in Stevie Johnson and other talented options like Williams and second-year USC product Robert Woods, but a guy like Evans might be too good for them to pass up. They should at least take a strong look at options like Evans, and this is exactly what they are doing.
ESPN NFL Nation’s Mike Rodak reports that the Bills are hosting Evans on a pre-draft visit today, and his visit with the Bills comes soon after his visit to the rival New York Jets. While the Jets have a bigger need for a receiver, they have no chance at drafting Evans due to their position in the draft. Meanwhile, the Bills could use a right tackle or offensive playmaker, especially a tight end like Eric Ebron, so it will be interesting to see which direction they go.
