    More targets to miss.
    I’d rather have a DE, LB, or CB.
    Draft a franchise QB that X-Era would be proud to put in his user name for the next 13 years.

    Re: Mocking The Bills: Brandon Beane Gets His Man

    There does not seem any reason to move up to draft a WR. There are so many good ones the Bills can certainly snag one with the 22nd pick, and probably get a rookie starter in the second round.

    Re: Mocking The Bills: Brandon Beane Gets His Man

    I wouldn't dismiss the possibility without good reason.

    The offense needs help, specifically another playmaker.
    Ruggs isn't necessarily another Tyreek Hill but he's close..McD/Reid/Daboll/Bama connections.
    Beane doesn't like to sit still, especially if he's set on a guy and that's all the cost is going to be.

    I got a feeling Beane is going to make a move.
    It's been Joe Biden's dream all of his life to be the democrats nominee for President of the United States of America it's just a shame he's not here to enjoy it.

Most of the guys in this group are like that. Shenault, Higgins, Jefferson, Mims, etc. are like that. (Jeury and Lamb aren't small, but won't be drafted due to their size, they're just damn good. They won't be around anyway.)

    Ruggs is smaller. We already have Brown and Beasley in the smurf collection. Like Brown, he can be deadly catching the 5 yard slant and taking it to the house. He can also get open deep. Something like 25% of his catches turned into TD's, which is an incredible figure. He's a legit threat to take it to the house on any play.

    Pair him with Brown and Beasley..and you can do some damage with a little creativity and on targets passes. You'd have one guy, Brown, who runs a 4.3 40 and another, Ruggs, who's actually faster. Possibilities open up.

    I remember the 2008 draft, when everyone was looking for the big WR, the one who was open when he wasn't open. There was a big run in the 2nd round on that type. Devin Thomas, Jordy Nelson, James Hardy, Malcolm Kelly were all taken in the 2nd. I remember saying before that draft, whether people were missing someone who wasn't that big but was still good. In that year, it was Desean Jackson, who went in the mid 2nd round. Of the big WRs, only Jordy Nelson made it (unless you want to count Stevie Johnson, who didn't go until the 6th or 7th.)

    I'm pretty sure this class is better than the 2008 class. But I wouldn't ignore a Henry Ruggs because he's less than 6 feet. There are a number of ways they can go but it can be tough to pass on speed.
    Do you have a personal analisis on him??

    Re: Mocking The Bills: Brandon Beane Gets His Man

    https-::profootballtalk.nbcsports.com:2020:02:18:henry-ruggs-favored-to-run-fastest-combine-40:

    Ruggs is a deep threat who had 40 catches for 746 yards last season, an average of 18.6 yards per catch. Ruggs has also returned punts and kickoffs, and he had a 75-yard touchdown run last season as well.

    Multiple Alabama teammates have predicted that Ruggs will run the 40 faster than 4.3 seconds, and Alabama cornerback Trevon Diggs even picked Ruggs to run it in 4.19 seconds, which would be the fastest ever.

    Not sure how Ruggs fits with our QB, a guy who loves to catch it deep paired with a QB with accuracy issues deep....not ideal.

    Re: Mocking The Bills: Brandon Beane Gets His Man

    In that Bills mock, I see in the 4th round the Bills are picking Anthony McFarland Jr. a smallish running back. What's surprising is that he is the son of a retired 300 lb defensive tackle, Anthony "Booger" McFarland.
    I've made up my mind. Don't confuse me with the facts.

    I'm the most reasonable poster here. If you don't agree, I'll be forced to have a hissy fit.

    Actually they aren't related.

    While they share the same name, McFarland is not the son of former NFL defensive lineman and current Monday Night Football announcer Anthony “Booger” McFarland.

    Re: Mocking The Bills: Brandon Beane Gets His Man

    Ruggs makes no sense, we already have a deep threat that our QB can't take advantage of because he has no long ball accuracy. Why would we bring in another?

    Re: Mocking The Bills: Brandon Beane Gets His Man

    There was a video of Beane being interviewed at the Senior Bowl and when it came to WRs he specifically talked about being able to handle press coverage and being physical at the line. He talked about how a lot of college WRs come from spread offenses or situations that don't translate as well to the NFL. He really seemed to emphasize the importance of being able to go against physical CBs. That seems to be a weakness for Ruggs or at least something he hasn't proven he can do. He's a dynamic athlete, but he doesn't seem like a fit for what Beane was talking about.

    Ruggs is gonna give defenses a ton of trouble.

    I'd love to get him.

    We could get a great list of nicknames for this guy.

    Well, its time the QB with the golden arm learns how to complete a pass over 20 yards. There's no reason he can't.

    The real waste is keeping the entire game in a 10 yard window because your QB hasn't figured out how to hit a deep target on occasion. No amount of a running game or "big receiver" is going to help that type of game.

    It didn't work for DIck Jauron, it didn't work for these guys and it won't work in the future. Unless you can back safeties off, or give CB's a moment of pause, or are able to take advantage of play action, you're going to just be a predictable, low scoring team.

    You can try to design an offense without deep passes, realizing it hasn't worked in 30 years...or you can train your QB to throw them on occasion accurately.

    Hm, interesting question entirely dependent on the individual proclivities of the subjects and circumstantial cognitive development combined with physical factors. I knew an accountant who could do compound interest in her head and tripped over cracks in the sidewalk, a janitor who could beat me at chess, and a bodybuilder who could do more pushups than either but cooked better than both.

    One has to consider the theoretical discrepancy in objective potential across a range of interrelated......oh never mind.

    I don't disagree with what you're saying, but Allen is who he is. We draft Ruggs, we waste his talent and after 4 years he likely just goes elsewhere in FA to try and show why he was a guy who was highly thought of in 2020. Because we all know that this franchise is gonna ride out Allen for at least 2 more years.

    Re: Mocking The Bills: Brandon Beane Gets His Man

    Mel Kiper just released his mock draft 2.0 and he now has the Bills taking Ruggs with the #22 pick.

    Here is what he said:
    22. Buffalo Bills
    Henry Ruggs III, WR, Alabama

    John Brown and Cole Beasley each were targeted more than 100 times last season. Can you name the Bills pass-catcher who ranked third on the team in targets? That would be rookie tight end Dawson Knox, who came on at the end of the season, finishing with 28 catches on 50 targets. So let's get Josh Allen another speedy target in Ruggs, who might be the fastest player in the entire 2020 class. I've been told to expect a time under 4.30 in the 40-yard dash at the combine. Ruggs is more than a speed guy who will catch deep balls; he improved as a route runner in 2019 and can break tackles after the catch.
