The recent COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent restrictions on NFL teams bringing in draft prospects to team facilities hasn’t stopped the Buffalo Bills from learning more about their potential targets. Following the chat with Baylor wide receiver Denzel Mims, the team has now participated in FaceTime with LSU offensive lineman Damien Lewis and Michigan State defensive tackle Raequan Williams.
Both players make sense as possible mid-round, depth options in the upcoming draft. Lewis is another in a long line of proverbial strong-as-an-ox power guards who always seems to come out of the SEC every year. Able to anchor well and push guys around in the run game, his feet are too slow to excel in every scheme. In the right fit, though, he could become a starter fairly quickly.
Raequan Williams has a similar athletic mold, except he’s on the other side of the ball. A key piece of Michigan State’s upper-echelon defense, the senior specialized in stopping the run with the help of his beefy upper body, and ability to penetrate the line. Unfortunately, any team that drafts Williams shouldn’t expect him to develop into any kind of consistent pass rusher when required by scheme.
