After the way Sammy Watkins has been tearing up training camp, per CBS Sports' Josh Katzowitz and The MMQB's Peter King, respectively, some will be quick to give the Bills wide receivers an A+++, Lisa Simpson style.
But hold the phone. Watkins is still a rookie, and there is going to be an adjustment period for him, no matter how talented he is. But Watkins is still dynamic, and he is joined by a few other versatile playmakers in the wide receiver room.
Stevie Johnson is gone, but Robert Woods will take his place in the slot. Some, like Chris Trapasso at TrendingBuffalo.com, think Woods is in line for a jump in performance this year. Woods had a decent rookie season, and with a full season from EJ Manuel, he should be able to make that jump.
Like Watkins, Mike Williams is a newcomer to the team. Williams, a Buffalo native, arrived from Tampa Bay early in the offseason after the Bills sent a sixth-round pick to the Bucs. Injuries shortened Williams' 2013 season, but he was highly productive prior to that. He had 11 touchdowns in 65 catches his rookie year and nine TDs in 63 catches in 2012.
Williams will definitely be a threat with his ability to catch the ball at its highest point.
To complement all the highly skilled receivers, the Bills have an outright burner in Marquise "Flash" Goodwin. With his blazing speed, Goodwin can leave any defender in the dust. And since opposing defenses will be focusing on Watkins, Williams and Woods, Goodwin should consistently be able to eat up the opposition's fourth corner.
The bottom of the Bills' receiver depth chart is yet to be determined, but Chris Hogan has been impressive, and Marcus Easley was a special teams standout last year. Manuel has to be giddy over all of the weapons he has around him. The only thing keeping this grade from being higher is the fact that we haven't yet seen how the top players will perform.
