Filling Needs: Part 1

Three weeks into the NFL season and we can already see some glaring needs of the Buffalo Bills.  Without a doubt, they need to improve the offensive line.  The lack of a second corner and a playmaker at WR is also hurting this team.  It is good possibility that our beloved Bills could be picking near the top of the draft again.  This is the first installment of some college players that may be able to fill those needs.

There is only one game Bills fans have to watch this Saturday.  It is the Ole Miss at LSU game on ESPN 8:15 PM ET Saturday night.  Keep an eye on the Ole Miss Rebels offense as they have some “nasty wide outs” and a very good offensive line.  LSU is all about the defense.  Let’s start with the Rebels tackle.

Greg Little, Junior OT – Ole Miss
Height: 6’6″ Weight: 325 lbs

This guy is a true left tackle and should be able to make the step to the next level with ease.  He is tall, strong and has good feet. Ole Miss boasts the nation’s 10th ranked passing offense. The line leads the way to 175 yards per game on the ground.  This offensive line has only allowed nine sacks in five games and four of those sacks came against top-ranked Alabama.

AJ Brown, Junior WR – Ole Miss
Height: 6’1” Weight: 230 lbs

Mississippi boasts college football’s best receiving core, with its own nickname and championship belt. The NWO, Nasty Wide Outs, are led by AJ Brown.  Brown is a two-sport standout, drafted out of high school by the San Diego Padres, who can catch and more importantly make plays after the catch.  As a sophomore, he had 75 catches for over 1200 yards and 11 touchdowns.  That is productive for a WR against vaunted SEC defenses.  This season he’s off to another great start with 26 receptions for 381 yards and three touchdowns.

Greedy Williams, Sophomore CB – LSU
Height: 6’3″ Weight: 194 lbs

Wouldn’t it be great to pair Tre’Davious White with another LSU cornerback?  This guy can play.  He is fast and long.  His strength is pass coverage, where he rarely gets beat long.  Doesn’t that sound like the perfect player to add to the Buffalo secondary?  In 2017, he had six interceptions and 11 pass break ups.  He also made 38 tackles.  In four games this season, he already has two interceptions and a pass breakup.  How can you not like a CB with a name like Greedy?

There you go, one game, two teams, and three players to watch.  8:15 PM ET Saturday night on ESPN.  Let us know what you think the Bills biggest needs are and who are some of the player that can fill the needs.
