Beane: Were not going to throw a bunch of resources at WR - we aren’t one player away

Recommended Posts

I do NOT believe we are going to draft a WR in the 1st round.   I did not believe it before the press conference.
(And based on what Beane said, we could go DeeLine in the 1st round...since he believes we need to continue to fortify the DLine)

Nothing wrong with waiting until the 2nd round.   You can get a good one:

  • Michael Brown, 2nd round
  • AJ Brown, 2nd round
  • DK Metcalf, 2nd round
  • DJ Chark, ,2nd round
  • Tyler Boyd, 2nd round
  • Courtland Sutton, 2nd round
  • Kenny Golladay, 3rd round
  • Cooper Kupp was a 3rd rounder
  • Chris Godwin , 3rd round
  • Terry McLaurin, 3rd round

 

I would be happy with that kind of production from a 2nd round WR in this year's draft....which is notable deep in WRs.

Well...sadly...he’s probably right. I’m almost totally expecting it. 

This regime has still yet to proven me that it wants a modern day nfl offense. 

If it takes most WRs 3 years to hit full potential, I'd rather trade for one or sign one in FA.

This defense is lacking a true edge threat.

OL is a huge need.

CB opposite white is a must. This is another position that should be  high priority in the draft. Just look at the money CBs are making. I think having a top CB opposite white for 5 years would be nice too.

Honestly, I want the BPA. Its anyone's guess what position that may be considering where we will be drafting.

I can see that.

EDGE rushers in the open market are expensive.  Even avg Joes.    So signing one in Free Agency that is better than Shaq Lawson or Trent Murphy is a challenge financially.

So if the Boys think that K'Lavon Chaisson, EDGE, LSU and Yetur Gross-Matos, EDGE, Penn State are good prospects, they could be options.
I would consider Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville in the first round.   If we hit on him, he would be holding down the RT spot for the next 5+ years.

I agree. I haven't done much digging into those edge rushers yet, but from what I have read Chaisson may have some value as an off ball LB that can rush the passer. But I'll get into that in a few weeks!

I'm happy with throwing a draft pick at 1 or 2 WRs in the draft, 1 early and 1 late.

I could also see a classic McBeane move of taking not only a former Panther, but one coming off of an injured season in Devin Funchess...if he doesn't sign another one-year deal with Indy.

With 9 draft picks, and a very deep draft of WRs, ideally we would draft 2.    Maybe 2nd and 5th round.   

Funchess.   Hmmm.  He is okay.  But he is not a 1000 yards a year receiver.  Indy had to pay him $10 million a year.  How much do you want to spend on him?

We now are paying Cole Beasley about $ 7 million a year and John Brown about $9 million a year.

Some WR's can have an immediate impact, others take 2 years or 3 years to hit full potential.

Marquise "Hollywood" Brown was a 1st round pick ,he had a rookie season with 46 catches for 584 yards and 7 TD's.

DJ Moore was a 1st round draft pick, he had a rookie season with 55 catches for 788 yards and 2 TD's.

Calvin Ridley was a 1st round draft pick, he had a rookie season with 64 catches for 821 yards and 10 TD's.

AJ Brown was a 2nd round draft pick, he had a rookie season with 52 catches for 1,051 yards and 8 TD's.

DK Metcalf was a 2nd round draft pick, he had a rookie season with 58 catches for 900 yards and 7 TD's.

3 QB's (Tua Tagovailoa, Justin Herbert, and Jake Fromm if he declares) could go in the top 10 which would push down talented WR's to Buffalo's pick at 22nd overall.

As far as edge rushers, if Beane and McDermott are not sold on Shaq Lawson improving as a pass rusher they can sign Matthew Judon or Yannick Ngakoue in free agency.

Actually, it sounds like that was true. Every report says that didn't change until mid-way through TC.

McCoy was the #1 , until he wasn't.

As a GM you hedge your bets.   Devin Singletary impressed in OTAs and training camp, and it made McCoy expendable.
Plus Frank Gore looked capable (he faded down the stretch).    If either had been injured, I bet we would have kept McCoy.

McCoy finished with 465 yards this year, so while McCoy showed flashes, I think Beane made the right call.

PS I think Beane was fairly honest with his assessments in the press conference.   "Josh can improve".  "Dawson Know did some good things, but he can improve".  He then glossed over Kroft which I take means he is under review.
 "We need to replenish on our DLine"...so ShaQ, Trent Murphy, and Jordan Phillips are all up in the air. 
Said our special teams could be better.  Looking at you Corey. 

Overall I believe his general statement that every position is under review for possible upgrading.  Although he said he wouldn't make a change unless it was significantly better to do so.   Consider a Trent Murphy.  Sure cut him and save some Cap, but can we sign a new DE in free agency that is much better?  If not, he probably keeps Trent.

Yeah, I'm a BPA guy in round 1 for sure.  All things being somewhat equal, then lean towards a WR.  A "#1 WR" is hard to find.  They should be looking for one but if they can't get it done, at least add a 3rd WR who is as good as John Brown...a guy that has to be accounted for.  They could also add another TE to pair with Knox.

Right now it looks like there could be some good CBs available around the 20th-22nd pick.   CBs are a high value position to take in the 1st round, so I could see it.

 

Maybe one of these:  Kristian Fulton, CB,  Trevon Diggs, CB, and C.J. Henderson, CB will still be on the board.

Beane has said he wants competition at every position and wants players to earn their positions.

With McCoy on the roster he drafted Devin Singletary, and later released McCoy when it was obvious that Singletary was as good or better than McCoy at a much smaller salary.

Buffalo signed Tyler Kroft in free agency but also drafted Dawson Knox, and when Kroft broke his foot it gave the opportunity to Knox to get 1st team reps.

 

Buffalo signed punter/kickoff specialist Kaare Vedvik to a futures contract because the are going have him compete with Corey Bojorquez for the punting job.

I'm with Crazy Legs, and I actually said it before the season even started.  Although I'm often a BPA type of guy, I'm probably still hoping the BPA is an OT.  CL's examples of 2nd round WRs work for me, although I supposed I wouldn't be terribly nonplussed if the Bills did get a good WR in the first.  I still think the OT might be a safer pick, even if someone don't see it as as big of a need.

On that note, I wouldn't mind an interior OL picked by the 4th round as well.  I think Dallas' line makes Dak and Zeke better, and also helps the D by keeping them off the field for longer stretches.  Build a bully!!

Unlike SeanDelevan, I wouldn't flip out if we got a Tre Jr to line up across from Tre to shut down some of the stuff our current CBs couldn't in OT of that last game, and elsewhere.  I suppose I could wait on that as I could on DE and TE.  The OT CrazyLegs and I want probably would piss Sean off too, being it's not the shiny toy many of us(myself included) want, but it can improve both the passing game AND the running game, as well as protecting the team's most valuable assett.

With the MASSIVE amount of spending cap room, GM Beane can have some holes filled before the draft, which will then make the predictions a bit easier.  

Lit, you haven't used to phrase "lying season" to mock Jungle about GMs lately.  :)   Jungle does seem correct though,  Beane's job is not to telegraph his moves.

Lit, don't let the antics of people like HipKat cause you to punish ThinWhiteDude.  The guy has showed the patrience of Iran and doesn't deserve to be penalized because of HipKat or anyone else, or even the level of orchestration he thinks mortal men on the earthly plane spend on the NFL.  I have faith in you, and maybe Hip was actually asking out of kindness instead of being his usual self, who knows?

The Bills are just a few players away just like the rest of the teams that made the playoffs....Brandon Beane & Sean McDermott have a bad habit of setting goals to low.

I don’t know if Josh is the QB of the future, but, he’s the QB of next year, so here’s what they need.

1) a big WR, with good hands to catch contested balls.

2) an upgrade at OT, somebody that can block a one armed JJ

3) Love Singletary, but, they need a bruising RB like Henry. Combine that with:

4) an upgrade at OG. So they can get a 3rd and 1 with out some tremendous effort by Josh on a QB sneak . Maybe that’s Ford... maybe it’s not. 
 

5) And with all the assets invested in defense is someone that can tackle DeShaun Watson to much to ask for?

6) some ST players that can block without being flagged.

Not for nothing, but while Beane failed at tanking for 2 years in a row, this season HCSM changed the team's mantra from "playoff caliber" to "championship caliber":

.

.

.

 

 

Orchard Park, N.Y. -- All season long the Buffalo Bills have repeated a single mantra when talking about their approach every day at practice: be “Playoff Caliber.”

Bills coach Sean McDermott even had the saying put on T-shirts to serve as a daily reminder. But after Buffalo clinched its second playoff berth in three seasons under the 45-year-old coach, he decided to change the message.

 

Now the saying reads: “Championship Caliber.”

McDermott explained after his team’s final home game of the regular season - a 13-6 loss to the New York Jets played mostly by Buffalo’s back ups - that the goal entering the season was to win a Super Bowl but to get there you have to become a playoff caliber football team.

“To give yourself a chance (to win the Super Bowl), that’s where playoff caliber comes in and that’s a day to day standard,” McDermott said. “A day to day barometer of the standard, and now that we’re in, as of a week or so ago, we changed it to championship caliber. And we know that we respect the challenge that’s in front of us too and that’s what we’re trying to go through as an organization. It’s going to take all of us and we’re going to have a really good week, a focused week here as we move forward.”

The Bills play the Houston Texans in the Wild Card Round of the playoff this Saturday at 4:30 p.m. ET. They’re going to have to win three games just to get to the big game and all three are likely to be on the road (the only chance at a home game is if the No. 6 seed Tennessee Titans advance to the AFC title game).

McDermott was asked about his team’s performance on the road this season after going 6-2 with impressive wins against the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers to clinch a playoff spot on Sunday Night Football in Week 15. The Bills hadn’t won a regular season game in Pittsburgh in 44 years before that victory.

The key ingredient for the Bills’ success has been patience and a single-minded focus every week on the task at hand. This week that task is the Texans.

“We’ve gone on the road, we’ve played close games,” he said. “I just think you’ve got to – it’s one game seasons from here on out. So, we’ve got to have a good week of preparation, our players need to get the rest and then we’ll take it one day at a time.”
