    No one wants to say Watkins because of how dominant receivers have struggled to make impact in their rookie seasons but Watkins is my pick. I think his style of play sets himself apart from guys like MegaTron, Roddy White, AJ Green & Dez who didn't dominate their rookie seasons.

    The Bills know they have bust potential in EJ Manuel and they are going to try and make things as easy and safe as possible for him. I expect them to get Watkins the ball a lot in space.

    Manziel (don't like him, but VY effect) and Sankey are my 2nd & 3rd picks

    I've heard NFLN talk about Sankey being a top candidate at ROY - which I could see if they use him more than Greene which shouldn't take long to do.

    But if not Sankey, I like the big guy in Tampa - Mike Evans.

    ROY candidate not for catching a ton of passes but because a big guy like Evans in the red zone - if he catches a handful of jump balls for TDs even with a low catch total - could be enough to get him the ROY.

    I'd like to pick Ebron as being up there offensively and the guy who I think will really make an impact is CJ Mosley with the Rats. I think he's the one to carry the Lewis mantra onward albeit without so much of the 'tude and none of the murder.

    Dont forget Dowell Loggains is the QB coach in Cleveland, any good Kyle Shanahan does will be negated by dumb little Loggains.

    No Im pretty sure its because he's in Buffalo and is the only show in town. He'll draw double and triple coverage all day, Buffalo has no one good opposite him to keep teams honest.

    What the Bills have going for them:
    • RB's
    • O-Line
    • Front-7
    Things holding the Bills back:
    • QB
    • WR's
    • TE's
    • DB's
    • Special Teams
    Poor Watkins is going to waste his career away if he stays a Bill, and you know something, he grew up a Bills fan, so he might actually be naive enough to think he can fix them.

    I am pulling for Shankey. Our OL is an unknown commodity at this point. The potential exists for our OL to beast it. If that happens...... Shankey could very well be ROY. I have no doubt he is our starter. No one knows how he runs in the NFL yet, which is good for us. Just like when our last back started out... No one knew how to stop him. Me thinks its a potentially good year for us.

    If you want that to be true, cross your fingers, toes, and any other think you can cross.
    Keep it clean jcb.

    Bills will run the football very effectively and that will open some lanes for Watkins. He'll make lots of plays out of absolutely nothing.
