2. Second round, 41st overall: Robert Woods, WR, USC
With a new quarterback in the fold, the Bills had to add some playmakers at the receiver position, and Robert Woods is a first round pick disguised as a second rounder after getting overshadowed by Marqise Lee the last two seasons.
To be honest, there probably aren’t any better receivers in this year’s draft class than Robert Woods. He can be a possession receiver, slot receiver, big play threat in the vertical passing game, red zone stud–you name it, this guy can do it. He is one of the most polished prospects in the draft, and I think the Bills got a steal here.
This is a guy who works hard who can come in and be a reliable target for the Bills right away. I like Steve Johnson in their offense, but I think Woods could eventually overthrow him as the #1 receiver on this team. He has that kind of talent, and he should be a guy who they can rely on to make big catches when the game is on the line. I am a big, big fan of this pickup.
