Buffalo Bills’ triplet receives Top 5 ranking

Where would you rank the trio of Tyrod Taylor, LeSean McCoy and Sammy Watkins?

By now, you’re probably done with offseason rankings and more than ready for NFL football to be played on NFL fields — and I totally understand that.

However, this ranking for the Bills — especially its disparity to the exact same list on another major site — is worth squeezing in during training camp.’s Dave Dameshek rated the Bills’ triplet of Tyrod Taylor, LeSean McCoy and Sammy Watkins as No.5 in the league.

Here’s what he wrote:

In case you've forgotten, most of the experts once strongly believed Watkins, drafted fourth overall in 2014, was better at playing football than Odell Beckham Jr., who was drafted 12th overall. That said, this isn't Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan in '84 (at least as long as Watkins' foot is fully healed from surgery): Watkins took a back seat to no one in the second half of 2015, thanks in part to having one of the NFL's best deep-ball passers in Taylor, who himself was equal parts dynamic and efficient in his first go-'round as a starter (99.4 passer rating, 20 TDs, 6 INTs, 568 rushing yards in 14 games). Shady is still one of the better runners around -- and among the prettiest to watch ever -- but the injuries are a drag.

This is, well, considerably higher than ESPN’s Bill Barnwell ranked Buffalo’s QB-RB-WR triumvirate — he had them at No. 21.

What are your thoughts? Should Buffalo’s offensive triplet of Tyrod, Shady and Sammy be closer to No. 5 or No. 21?
