December Poll: Who Should Be The #2 WR


So it was announced that the Bills placed Lee Evans, the number one wide receiver, on the injured reserve due to his ankle injury against the Browns.  Regardless of how poor his performances of late (statistically) have been, this is a big blow to the offense.  It also puts a lot of pressure on the team leading WR Steve Johnson who has emerged this season as a big receiving threat.  Further compounding the situation is the absence of veteran slot receiver Roscoe Parrish who was likewise emerging as a threat before going to the IR midway through the season.  As such this in turn puts a lot of pressure on the three remaining WR (undrafted) rookies on the roster, David Nelson, Donald Jones, and Naaman Roosevelt. 

Nelson has seen the most action so far with 28 catches for 292 yards and 2 TDs (16 first downs) and is the tallest of the three at 6-5.  Nelson also has good hands and is a good route runner.  Jones meanwhile has 12 catches for 130 yards, 1 TD and 6 first downs.  Jones also subbed in immediately at slot following Roscoe's injury and is a good special teamer.  Roosevelt lastly has not seen any passes yet as he was the number 5 WR limited to punt/kick coverages.  Additionally, Roosevelt, while UBs best receiver, has spent the majority of the season on the practice squad and was only recently called up.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
