When the Bills sent away their first round pick in 2015 to move up to take Watkins, there was little doubt that he would step in right away and be not only the team’s starter, but their top wideout. His blend of explosiveness, hands and physicality make him a rare find from a talent perspective, so expect the Bills to have him on the field in bunches.
He’ll pair with Robert Woods in sets with only two wide receivers in hopes that they form a very dynamic duo. The Bills are still very high on Woods, believing that he is as good of a number two target as they can find.
When the Bills go to three wide receiver sets, expect to see Mike Williams. The story says they view Williams as a potential instant contributor, and someone who could help QB E.J. Manuel in both the red zone and as a player with high pointing ability on all areas of the field. Marquise Goodwin will be the change of pace wide receiver just as he was last year when healthy.
