For all of the people raging in the Shoutbox that we didn't draft enough offense....

Recommended Posts

To those who don't spend a lot of time reading the Shoutbox, you might not understand this...SeanDelevan isn't even the worst in there about this. :)

Look, DE isn't what I was rooting for today, and I've been critical of the OL since 2018.  However, it's not really true that they "only draft defense".  If you remember the Diggs trade, the Bills spent FOUR picks(one of them a 1st) on offense before they spent a single pick on defense.  The total is 5 to 1 offense to defense for the season so far this year....even breaking a rule of drafting a RB higher than conventional wisdom(that some have, I know opinions differ) says to.  

After being hypercritical of Beane in his first 2 offseasons, I said I'd give him the benefit of the doubt this offseason.  Other than the mediocre FAs(some possibly overpaid, too), I think Beane has been alright so far, and we know Diggs will be a huge upgrade and ready to go.  Assuming we have a season, I am excited for this team.  Remember that we have Christian Wade also, an all time legend who may be ready this season.

Good post to except for saying we drafted a running back higher than conventional wisdom. Andy Reid drafted one before us. The ravens drafted one before us. The Packers drafted one before us. Teams draft running backs because they handle the ball and score touchdowns. It’s OK to draft running backs. You’re not stupid if you draft a running back.  That narrative is perpetuated by people who have never actually drafted players with anything on the line.

i wouldn’t draft a RB in the top 25 picks or so, but 2nd and 3rd round are fair game.  

Thanks, and on the RB I agree with you to an extent.  I'm just saying it's a view that a decent number of people hold, and was making a point that the Bills 2 years in a row did not hold themselves to it, and the people raging against them for not picking offense may want to reconsider their proclamations.

I don’t think that’s the problem. The problem is we drafted a dude at RB last year(should have been a WR) and then again this year(should have been a WR). sooooo who is it? I understand the the thunder lightning thing but they couldn’t have signed someone off the street to do that? 
 

but whatever this pick and the DE pick in rd 2 just fucking confirms what I’ve been saying for 3 years now: McBeane have zero, none, nada interest of having a modern 21st nfl offense. They like 1975 football....run the ball and stop the run.

Bruh, they traded a 1st round pick for a bonafide #1 WR.  Not a draft pick who should pan out, a dude who is a certifiable #1.

Brown and Bease were pretty fucking good last year and slide perfectly into their roles as #2 and #3.

Back to back years of RB's in the 3rd round.  Motor was great pick last year, if Moss has a similar impact it's another homerun.

Let's say they picked Mims over Epenesa.  How much is the 4th WR going to play?  10-15% of the snaps if everyone ahead of him stays healthy?  How much is your 4th DE playing?  30-45% of the snaps in this defense.

Epenesa is a beast, bar none.  Easily can have a 10 year career as a Bill.  

Final point, until Josh takes a major fucking leap we need to be able to run the ball.  He isnt Mahomes, Brees or Brady he is Cam Newton-lite.

There are enough weapons on the offense to be a good offense.  It's on Josh to make sure the execution is there.

Yeah I hear you. But Epenesa is awesome. I would have been fine with him at 22 and here he is at 54. I wanted offense too but they have 5 picks today. If you count the first pick as Diggs then this draft they went WR, DE, RB. And he’s a RB that is pretty good. I think he has a good shot to be as good or better than Devin.

2020 isn't 1975 football, you need a good defense to stop today's offenses.

With the current roster depth I just don't see how an offensive pick would have gotten reps this year.

Would Mims have been able to take reps from Diggs, Brown and Beasley? No. He isn't even a big improvement his rookie year over McKenzie. 

Ford has to take a big step forward but our OT depth is solid with Daryl Williams and Nsekhe.

Like OT, TE is deep but Knox has to step up.

DE needed some youth and someone who can rotate in his rookie year.

I like the pick.

So why was this one of the worst offenses in the league last year then? Allen?

Except...We already have one of the best receiving cores. What we need is olineman.

That and we really only had 2 competent WR and Gore was a negative when the entire second half of the season.

 

Those have beem addressed.  The rest is on Josh.

Although special teams, I'd count the kicker as offense being he literally scores more than most guys on on offense. 

I just recall a certain someone's official prediction being defense in every round.  

10-1.  (9-1-1 if you want to quibble)

I'm personally hoping for a punter in the 7th rather than trying to beat 31 other teams to sign an UDFA.

I do not agree with narrative that running backs are a dime a dozen. Great running backs are extremely valuable.

Narrative that defense does not matter is equally foolish. 

Oline needs to be addressed. Hopefully they have something in mind

None of those teams you mentioned have won a Super Bowl with a high drafted RB.

So those teams are irrelevant.

The Chiefs won a Super Bowl last year with an Undrafted rookie RB.

At what spot did we select an injured Willis McGahee?
