I realize that the title was intentionally provocative. I realize that we have huge needs at almost every position. But hear me out ...
1. Lee Evans doesn't seem like he can carry a passing offense (even our sorry excuse for one) by himself.
2. TO is either going to be gone or even older next year.
3. WRs tend to develop fairly quickly. Not like RBs, but they can make an impact.
4. Josh Reed may not be back. Even if he is, he's not a starter.
5. Hardy and Johnson are so unproven. I love them both dearly, but if they were stud WRs, we'd know by now.
If the Bills draft a stud WR or trade for a young prospect (I know there's not a lot of choices in the draft), then one of two things happens: Either TO is around and the guy can learn as the 3rd WR and return kicks, or TO isn't around and the guy can start opposite Evans. Either way, the offense is better.
I'm talking about a bruiser WR, by the way. Someone who won't go all alligator arms when there's traffic in the middle of the field, unlike TO. But I'm also open to suggestions. I'm nice that way.
Yes, I know you need a QB to throw to the WRs, but it works both ways. The more targets, the better for the passer, and this is fast becoming a passers' league. So why not give the next QB a legitimate array of targets?
