    Claypool will most likely become a TE

    I’m a Hawkeye, and watched Easley his whole career. He is like a larger Beasley. Great moves and great hands.

    I would be ecstatic if the Bills drafted Claypool. Don't have a clue why anyone wouldn't be.

    Claypool is 6'4", 238 lbs. He ran a 4.42 40. He had a 40" vertical jump. Think about this. Can't double team him, we have Diggs, Brown and Beasely. He's used to being out wide. You can line him up at TE.....FB for that matter......oh, he's an outstanding run blocker and on ST.

    You have Diggs, Brown and Beasely....he doesn't have to be "THE Man".....he can grow into replacing one of them though. No hurry.

    So you have a big bruiser who runs a 4.4, blocks, plays ST and can catch balls 10 feet in the air.....nah. Come on.
    I lost a bet with Pink and all I got was this dumb avatar that I've had awhile anyway.

    Viruses are not living things. Viruses are complicated assemblies of molecules, including proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, and carbohydrates, but on their own they can donothing until they enter a living cell. Without cells, viruses would not be able to multiply. Therefore, viruses are not living things.

    He's probably on our radar as well, there are just so many directions we could go.

    Agreed, at his age, he can put on 20-30lbs very easily.

    You have to figure he'd be a monster TE you can line up at WR, or a monster WR you can line up at TE.

    I'm a big fan of Claypool. Line him up at fullback. He weighs 5 lbs less than DiMarco. How do you stop an offense that sends Diggs, Beasely, Brown, Singletary and a 238 lb guy who runs a 4.4 and can catch balls 10 feet up ? It's an uncoverable shooting gallery.

    Options with a creative coordinator would become endless.

    I hope so. He is on the Bills roster after all. He was signed as a UDFA a year ago, and signed a futures contract to secure his spot on the offseason roster.

    As far as the question posed by the OP is concerned, Claypool is not going to have a significant contribution this year if the Bills draft him. There's just no room. However, the Bills have added almost all the immediate help they really need. They are a team that can afford to not get a contribution out of their top draft pick. In essence, Stephon Diggs is their top pick. If he lives up to his potential, he will have a significant impact on the Bills for possibly a decade or more. Other players will have more immediate impact, but I would not be angry if they picked him.
    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.

    He's a possibility but his days are probably numbered.

    You really think Diggs could contribute until he's 36?

    I would be happy with just 5 seasons of dominance.

    In two to three years we will be Super Bowl Champions, so there is no need of five nor ten years of dominance, folks.

    Hard for me to react to mock drafts anymore. They are time fillers and little else.
    Looks like they want to get something done with Dawkins.
