The Buffalo Bills have become accustomed to disappointing wide receivers.
With the exception of Lee Evans, the Bills failed to get reliable play from their receiving corps since the departure of Eric Moulds.
Everyone from Peerless Price (second stint) to Terrell Owens have struggled with production as a Buffalo Bill. Even top draft picks like James Hardy and Chad Jackson, both second-round selections, have failed to reach expectations at the next level.
Most would blame it on inconsistency at quarterback, and they would be correct. However, the receiving corps hasn't done anything to help the passing game either.
Why is Naaman Roosevelt different?
In a word, consistency.
In his junior and senior seasons, Roosevelt averaged 7.25 catches per game, while exceeding 90 yards receiving in 14 of his 24 games.
Toughness is another attribute that Roosevelt brings to the table. He battled a knee injury throughout his senior season. In his final game, despite being visibly hobbled by the injury, Roosevelt accumulated 165 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
He may lack elite speed and size, but his work ethic, instincts, and toughness will guarantee him success in the NFL.
