Buffalo Bills among the best fits for Braxton Miller

Buffalo could use a wide receiver like Miller.

The Buffalo Bills have plenty of wide receivers on their roster, but the team would benefit from adding a complement to Sammy WatkinsRobert Woods is a fine wide receiver, but he doesn't have the ability to keep safeties honest and make explosive plays down the field. He's also entering the final year of his rookie contract. 

Keeping this in mind, and the fact that Buffalo lost Chris Hogan to the Patriots, the Bills could draft a receiver earlier than some anticipate. One name to watch is Ohio State's Braxton Miller

Bucky Brooks, an NFL analyst, believes that Miller's ceiling in the draft begins with Buffalo's second round pick (No. 49) and ranges all the way to their third round pick (No. 80). He calls Miller "arguably the most electrifying playmaker in the 2016 class," which is exactly what the Bills need.

In terms of teams that are best fits for Miller, Brooks lists the Bills, Bengals, Giants, Chiefs, and Eagles. Here is what Brooks says in regards to why Miller would fit well in Buffalo:

"In Buffalo, Miller could fill the void created by Chris Hogan's departure and the retirement of Percy Harvin. The 6-foot-1, 201-pounder played Harvin's "H-back" spot in Urban Meyer's offense, and he could reprise the role with the Bills in the near future."

At Ohio State, Miller showed that he can be a dangerous weapon in open space. He certainly isn't as polished as some of the other receivers in this draft class, but he may be exactly what the Bills need as a future complement to Watkins.
